hi Asta, Welcome Home! we're so happy to sniff you again. we missed your little fuzzy-butt! we partied with you too, but we didn't travel on Air Ruby. we have a magic flying carpet that Brocksy brought with him from the UK. we also had a murder while you were gone. you have a lot of catching up to do. but first you need to rest and then we are anxious to hear all about your trip. it must have been fun with all of that gelato and wonderful foodies. you didn't get diarrhea, did you? we want to know about the stupid plane ride too. did you sit with your mom & dad? why did it suck?

welcome woofies!

Petra said...

I loved being at your party, Asta! I'm so glad you had a great time in Rome, that you're home safely, and I can't wait to see your pictures.

I hope you get over the jet lag soon, too.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Welcome home! Sorry I couldn't make it to your suprise pawty!!! I had to go to a stoopid meeting at work with my human. Your pawty would have been much more fun!

Hope you are catching up on some sleep!

Oh My BFF!!!!!!!!!

So so so glad ur home, my sweet Asta!! Hey...nice tummy spots...SHOW OFF!!

Um...we tried to catch ALL the mice that we used for the mice game before we left. We brought 500of them and numbered them, but Scruffy didn't know how to count higher than 100. I'm figurin' we left bout 400. They are really fun poker players and they told me they love smooshie tatoes...

Can't WAIT to see ur pix...we're off to the beauty salon...Mumsie's havin' to drag the boyz, but Stan's too hot and Scruffy stinks...as usual. I'm gettin' some lowlights...a little too blondie the last time!!!

Love u bundles!!
