We didn't have plans with ouw fwiends till this aftewnoon, so we had a lazy mowning..it was a bit chilly, so I went to get some stickies fow the stove, meanwhile Stanley snuck out to gathew owange flowews fow me..sighhhhh!
I could stay hewe fowevew.......

evewyone is getting a little tiwed , so we decided to stay awound Dublin today instead of going fwom one end of Iweland to the othew

We met up with the gang at the Guiness Bwewewy fow a visit.  
Momo told us that it was leased fow 9,000 yeaws in 1759 fow 45 BPS/yeaw.  StJames 's Gate has been the home of Guiness evew since.  I became the lawgest Bwewewy in Iweland in 1838, and is still the lawgest bwewew of stout in the wowld.

I am glad you are having some romantic time with Stanley! It was very sweet of him to bring you those pretty flowers.

Gus said...

You and Stanley are lookin right at home in Eire. Have a great St. Patrick's day. Muzzer says to remind you that St. Patrick was a member of the Roman Legion occupying Ireland, so in effect, this is an Italian holiday. PASTA

Mack said...

I know you are having a wonderful time! Wish I was there with ya. Maybe next time!

Hi, Asta -

Your adventures sound so exciting. I haven't been to many places yet mostly New Hampshire, Maine and Connecticut.

Mama found your Dogster page and thought it was really cute. She especially liked your Christmas picture. Are you sure your Mommi paints and is not a teacher?

We can't wait to hear about your adventures for tomorrow.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

I can't wait to hear about it!
Kisses and hugs

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Asta! You and Stanley sure are having a wonderful time - are you planning another trip together soon?

Also, do you know the story with Maarvin's human? I was shocked to hear about the blogs going away - we liked him so much - I hope nothing bad has happened!


Kirby said...


Your adventures crack me up. You guys have the greatest time together. Looks like you are having a lovely holiday in Ireland. Mom was there a few years ago, and looking at your pictures really is bringing back her memories. Have a wonderful last day in the Emerald Isle!

Your pal,

Astaroni Fuzzbutt!

I am having a BLAST with you in Ireland. Thanks for scouting out a romantic picnic spot for us on the cliffs. I'll play bitey or kissie face with you ANYtime, ANYwhere!

You have been so sweet to me. I love traveling with you. Those orange flowers are nothing compared to all the ways you show me you love me!

Love & smooches,
Your Goober Boy

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Another fun day in Ireland! Really liked the brewery but I think Roscoe maybe drank more than he was serving, ha, ha, ha. He has been sleeping a lot this afternoon. See you tomorrow for the big day in Ireland.

Persephone and Buster said...

Now, Guinness is the Nectar of the Celtic Mother-Goddess, but don't forget Harp and Smithwick's and all the other worthy brews--especially if yer entertainin' as discerning a gentleman as Stanley O'Goober!

Then, o'course there's the Irish Whiskey, but we don' suggest ye go there yet...

Have a very happy St. Patty's Day!

Sephie & Buster

Hey, Asta, we finally figured out how to be ourselves. And we have a picture too so you'll all recognize us,instead of calling us Jan. Course we aren't all in the picture, but Cameron and Merci are.

We'll be back tomorrow to read about your last day in Ireland.
