This was the fiwst time we met Opal, and she was a weal cutie..we love hew little cuwly tail and black shiny eyes...both she and Myrna had scawves on..I guess that wintew cold is still awound and they bof had the sniffles.

Aftew I said hello and gave hew a big smoochie kiss, I left her with Myrna to talk things ovew and have some cookies, while Mommi , Nanny and I went into the othew woom to play

Opal and Myrna immediately hit it off and wewe exchanging smoochie kisses befowe long and planning on thwowing a special pawty fow wheelies, but then they decided anyone could come, but especially wheelies, hehehe
Nanny bwought me this most fantastical'll notice IT'S OWANGE!!!!!!!!!! not only can you chew it endlessly, but you can play pull-tug with it too and it's fantastic...I love it sooo much!!!
Poow Nanny almost got hew awms pulled off..this is a gweat game,I'm all bluwwy, cause I shake my head fwom side to side to get bettew levewage................ sowwy Nanny
Nanny was totally putting me into a twance..massaging me.....she has magic hands..I love Nanny! Ruby is a lucky giwl.
Nanny's wondewful bellywubs and kisses put me totally to sneep
THIS A SMALL EXAMPLE OF TEWWIEW STUBBOWNNESS..I COULD DO THIS ALL DAY,BUT NANNY'S AWM WOULD HAVE COME OFF LIKE JOEY'S FWIEND COWBOY BOB'S LEG, AND THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING, SO MOMMI MADE ME STOPThank you so much fow the visit Nanny..I suwe hope you didn't get soaked on the way home..I love you!!

Asta, Nanny seems very, very nice! And she has very good taste in toys, too. You are strong! I like that.

Asta ran away with the chewie!!

I bet you had such a fun time visiting with Nanny! And I know Myrna really enjoyed seeing Opal for the first time! I didn't realize Opal was so widdle!

Did you know Nanny is my honorary Nanny? Maybe one day she'll be my Nanny-in-law..heehee

Jan said...

Oh, what a fun visit you had. And the video looks like fun.

If you think terriers are stubborn, you should meet Buddy. He is not only stubborn, he refuses to "lose" and he growls so ferociously he scares off new players. Samaritan is his only competitor left who can hang in there with him. He's strong and determined.


Gus said...

Oh you are such a lucky doggie! Meeting Nanny and Opal and a new chewie toy. AND belly rubs and massssgggggeeesss.!!!!

You are good at tuggy. You and I could play tuggy for hours. You grab one end and I'll grab the other. What terrier fun we would have.

Luna Licks,

Hi Asta,

WOW, you were so lucky to get a visit from Nanny. Those belly rubs and massages looked great! Your new toy looks so cool, Nanny was so nice to tug with you. I play with my tugs exactly the same way. 'Cept I don't have a cool orange tug like you.

Your pal,

Hi, Asta -

You are so funny! Mama especially liked the way you walked away at the end of the video. Is orange really your favorite color? Kaci likes red bones that squeak and I have a blue bone that squeaks.

Love -


Hi, Asta -

When I play with my toys I love flinging them in the air! I also play with toys like you do.

Hammer said...

Hi Asta
Sorry to hear that you are having such terrible weather over there. You take good care of yourself.
Opal and Myrna sure are sweeties and a wheelie pawty sounds a load of fun.
We're pleased you had so much fun with your Grandma and the special orange toy she bought specially for you.
Love from Hammer

Joe Stains said...

what a fabulous visit you had! I have never been to a wheelies party before, what happens at them?? Terriers LOVE to tug. I am still not admitting any knowledge to what happened to my cowboy pig's leg.

MoMo said...

Looks like a great time you had with your Nanny. Does she visit often?

Girl Girl Hamster said...

So nice of them to visit.. You sure are good at the tag game. :)

Hi, Asta -

Mama just read our previous post on this entry. The paragraph at the end was from Kaci - she loves flinging her toys in the air! I (Hershey) would rather drag four foot sticks around in the back yard!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Bosco (my older sister) loved food and especially treats. I think food boycotts are more fun - it drives Mama crazy!

Sassy Kat said...

I tlooks like you had such a good visit with Nanny. What a wonderful toy she brought for you to play with. I so enjoy watching the videos of you. Seems like I am right there with you watching you play. I don't know why your mommie made you stop having Nanny giving you a rub, no fair.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, good thing you were not sooo rough with your grammie when playing tug-of-war. But she sure is strong to hold on!

Love licks,

Petra said...

Hey, Asta! Where did you go?(teehee! -- I obey just like you!)

How LUCKY you were to have Nanny and Opal come & visit. You are one good tug-of-warrior!

BrandytheGreat said...

Wow Asta looks like you had so much fun! And you look too cute running away with your toy!

PB & J said...

That looks like a great visit! My Nana never plays tug with me, she says I'm too strong - you sure are lucky!

Belly rubs are just the best. You look like you had a great time with Rubys Nanny. Myrna and Opal seem to really hit it off.

Again thank you for the lovely time Opal and I had with you and Mommi. I just looked at the video and it sure looks like you had enough and left, it was sooo funny, but I know you came back for more loving. Hope you and your pawrents will come visit us when the weather gets warmer. Remember if they decide not let you on the plane to Rome, you can come and stay with us.
Love, hugs, bellyrubs,smoochies & wheelies
Nanny & Opal
