Gus's words made my mom cry. She said they were beautiful. We are glad your auntie Karen has you to help her feel better.

Gus said...

Asta Sweetie: It looks to me like you are doing exactly the right thing. I am sorry you are so exhausted, but little by little it will get better for Auntie Karen, and she won't need you nearly as much, or hug as hard, or want so many kisses. Then you can take a well deserved rest with Mommi. A few naps will help a lot

kisses

Hi, Asta -

What adorable pictures! We are glad that you are helping your Aunt Kawen and the rest of your family.

When Mama gets sad Kaci and I LOVE to lick her tears away.

Love -

P.S. We hope you have a good weekend.

Daisy said...

Asta, who could not help but feel a little bit better after snuggling with you? You are doing a very wonderful and important job.

Penny & Poppy said...

Asta, Gussie was absolutely right! Your hugs and smoochie kisses are exactly what Auntie Karen needs right now. Our mom's mother died a little over 3 years ago and at that time, someone told her that the day would come when she would feel guilty for not thinking of her mother every single second of everyday. Mom found that hard to believe and prayed for that day to come soon. She can't remember how long it took, but the time DID come. She still thinks of her mom everyday, but not every single second and that sick feeling in the pit of her stomach has finally gone away. Please tell Aunt Karen that although her grief will never go away completely, it will get better with time. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy & Penny

Mack said...

Much love from our home to yours!

Stanley said...

Astaroni!

My girl says that one look at your freckled belly and she doesn't even care what else happens that day... her day is ALREADY made!

Auntie Kawen feels the love, that's for sure. Gussie Boy made my girl cry and made me tear up a bit myself thinking of my brave Asta girl with a heart full of love and spunk. You have so much to give, and you our channeling our love to Auntie Kawen too!

Be sure to get some good naps in. I'm SO PROUD of you, sweetpea.

I'm sending a boatload (and Stella is sending a Vespa Load) of goober smooches for you, your mommi & daddi and especially for Auntie Kawen. I wish I could give her one of my atomic goober hugs!

Goober love,
Stanley Boy

Sassy Kat said...

Oh no, my poor sweet Asta and her mommie. I am so saddened to hear about your Aunt Karen's husband's passing. My heart is so heavy and again the mom of the house has the tears in her eyes falling down her cheeks. My throughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am so so so sad that this has happened. Please tell your mom that I will keep her and her sissy in my heart and prayers as they are going through this sad time.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Dear Asta,

So sorry to hear about your Auntie Karen. Deepest sympathies to you, your Mom, Dad, and Auntie Karen. I know she is very special from all the posts on your blog.

Wacky Wires are the best medicine for humans during sad times. It is very tiring keeping everyones spirits up with all the entertaining and licky face.

Keep up everyones spirits.

Luna Licks,

PS: I haven't blogged in a while. My laptop crashed and Dad just got around to reloading it. Something about excessive dog biscuit crumbs in the keyboard.

Deefor said...

That is very good advice. Sometimes we can help our humans by being with them. Cause we know how they feel without asking. You are doing a good job.
