Hi, Asta -

Yippee! Your Daddi is home. We think your Daddi likes all the attention he is getting from you and your nurse buddies. How can he not get better soon?

Did he really get kicked out of the hospital?!? Now you and your Mommi can take care of each other which will make your Daddi feel better.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Moco said...

How could Daddi not get better with all those pups on top of him. They will push the illness right out and away. Good job!

Stella said...

Sweet ASta Girl BBFF!

I LOVE your daddi and I'm SO honored you are letting me practice therapyrizing him. He's a good daddi and always does just what I say. And, he's even more comfy to sleep on than my princess bed in GooberStan.

You know, sweet fren, I don't have a daddi like you, but I could get used to this. Maybe could I stay wif you until I have a daddi to go home to? I'll miss Hairy Stanley but he can come visit okay?

MuWAH! muwah! muWAH!

All my goobery love and a million tiny kissies,
Stella Bean (TDIT & DDIT ~ therapy dog in training & daughter dog in training)

Stanley said...

Sweetest Astaroni!

You have had a VERY long week, girlie. You and your mommi can just kick back now & lounge with your daddi... let the nursie Wires take it from here. They're love and spunk alone can't help but make your daddi better.

Of course, no one can sit on your daddi like you... so if he decides to be stubborn & NOT rest, then by all means, step in and keep him in bed. Please give him a goober noogie on his punkin head for me.

I'm sending extra soothing and energizing goober smooches to you and your mommi. I bet you're worn out! But, I'm also betting that having daddi home makes a world of difference.

Goober love & boatloads of smooches,
Your Stanley Boy

Pee Ess
Thanks for taking Stella off my hands for a few days. Are you sure this isn't all some elaborate ruse by your daddi to give me a break from the Stellanator?

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Asta, we are SO HAPPY that you Daddy is home! From that picture, he has plenty of nurses!

We know that just being home with you and your Mommy will make him feel so much better!

This is the best news I've heard all week - make that all month!

sugars to mommy, daddy & ASTA!!

Sassy Kat said...

So glad that your dad is home, we know that he will rest better at home than at that hospital. I know they try to take good care of you at the hospitals but nothing is as good as your own bed. Besides you will be able to see him and snuggle up with him to help him get better.
Will check in later to see how you all are doing.
Your sissies,
Sassy & Momo

Daisy said...

Hooray! I am so happy that your dad is out of the hospital and back at home. That is wonderful news.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...We're going to have to get Daddi up this morning to sit in a chair after he ambulates round the apartment...while he's taking deep breaths and coughing so he doesn't get New Mon Ya from being in bed. (He whispered something bout goin' out for breakfast at ur usual place..the sunnyshine might do him good.) I am in charge of washin' the sheets and Making An Unoccupied Bed...Occupied Beds are much harder and you and Ag have to do those. Yes, I know the open part of the pillow case should point away from the door. You and Agatha are such good instructors. Ag has already dispensed his meds this morning. Trust that girl not to have them a minute late.

That parking sign is the BEST. We have only seen signs that say NO STAFF PARKING HERE. Then they make us walk forever.

Sterile healing lickies to ur Daddi,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Dear Asta's Daddi,

About that nightcap...

We'll be helpin' ya out in that fashion later...don't let those nurses drive ya outta ur mind.

Scruffy and Babystan

Agatha and Archie said...

Well of course we are thrilled he is home but our work is just starting, We have to make sure he takes his medicine(and on time) and that he drinks plenty of fluids and eats really really good food. I have Archie ,Scruffy and BabyStan out shopping for some really nice bones for him.Lacie is going to make a delish and nutritious meal and Koobie is going to do some dessert. As for you little one you keep on resting with your Daddy. Give your Mom kisses and hugs from all of us,Love A+A+PL2( I am SO into my nursing I can not BELIEVE i have my hat on backwards,how unprofessional)

Please give him a kiss from me. **MUACKS**


Dexter said...

So glad that your Daddi came home where he can get the best care from all those nurse terriers. Now your momma can take a nap, too.


Jans Funny Farm said...

We're glad your dad is home, but is it good for him to have so many dancing attendance at the same time? Looks like they'll wear him out with kindness and concern.

As to the nightcap mix-up, keeping his head warm will keep him from catching a summer cold.

Sending purrs and tail wags.

Lorenza said...

Dear sweet Asta,
I'm sorry that I have fallen so far behind on my blog reading! It looks like May has been a really ruff month for you and your family. I'm very sorry for that. But I'm glad that your daddy is home now and with all those doggies helping you, I'm sure he'll be feeling good as new in no time.

Hi Asta's pals!

It's me, Petey, and I just came from Asta's house. Her Daddi is feeling much better (even though he didn't believe me when I told him there was a very good orange ball under the bookcase!). We were very happy to see him looking like his healthy self! Me and Asta went swimming this afternoon and it was really fun. There's a swimming pool shaped like a big bone at our dog run and we can go skinny dipping.

I am very tired right now and my mustache is looking crazy from all those Asta kisses! One last thing, Mica the cat asked to tell you all that he is my big bruddah, and he is not a sissy! He's a ferocious mouser (hamsters don't need to worry!). He liked Asta so much that he didn't even say "ssssss" when he met her for the first time!

Hope everyone is having a fun summer and has plenty of bouncy tennis balls! Thanks for sending such good thoughts to Asta and her people.

Your pals,

Petey and Mica

Petra said...

With all of that help, your dad should be running around in no time! I think he is the most handsome of all in that picture, especially with his nightcap on.

I am so glad you nursed your daddy back to health and you make sure he takes his medicines and stuff....I just got back and so much has happened in just one week. I sure hope Auntie Karen is learning to smile again, alittle bit anywaz..I know its alot to ask......Give your daddy hugs and kisses for me and your mummy too....I give you large paw hugs and smooches.

Deetz said...

We just had to stay outside last night. We or should I say Charlotte rolled in dead fishy guts and then rubbed it on to me, so I had to stay outside too. I promise Asta, I will stay out of trouble and not get sick or anything at all. I think I am gonna have to have a bath for sure now though, cuz even I think I smell horrid..... Get daddie well soon okay. You should take your family on a relaxing, no phones, do nothing vacation when daddy gets better, uh. I know lil Asta you could sure use one after all the traumas

Huskee and Hershey said...

YAY!! Your daddy's home!! I am sure with all the loving from you and the care from the nurses, your daddy will be fine in no time at all!

George the Pup said...

That is pawesome news Asta - it looks like you guys are doing such a good job nursing your Daddi back to health!

Toffee said...

Glad to see that you were able to spend a couple of moments to say hi! that means that your daddi must be feeling better. We did notice that you were writing comments to blog friends at 1:00am last night (Sunday) - please make sure you are getting some sleep! You need to keep your energy up my fwiend!

wally said...


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog with the update on your dad. I'm so glad he's feeling better and could come home! I'm sure he's much happier there. If you need another nurse I will iron mine! I'm also nursing my baby brother who had a bit of a neuter today. He's very sweet when he's all sleepy and woozy--he FINALLY stops moving!

Take good care of your dad!
