Hi, Asta -

What a nice tribute to your hamsterrier friend. And you look "mahvalous" in your Banana.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. We get tons of bandanas from our groomer. My older sister has 49 of them.

Thank you for remembering Fufu Asta. The painting you and your mummy did of him is hanging in Eil's room where we get to see it everyday.
I sure hope Fufu is taking care of the furkids who went over the rainbow bridge after him.

I wasn't lucky enough to know Mr. FuFu. He sounds like a super hamsterrier.

Have a great day pretty Asta,

You are SO SWEET and have the biggest heart ever! What a special way to remember FuFu. I wish I had known him, and through pups like you, I feel I do.

Hammer had a great idea there, with International FuFu Banana Day! Girl Girl is so lucky to have had such a great brother!

Goober love & smooches,

Dexter said...

Oh, I missed bananna day. Rats. Yup, it is so sad when our friends go away.


Toffee said...

What beautiful thoughts; you are such a caring canine.

Warm thoughts on this day to you.
We also honored Fufu bandana day. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to know dear Fufu.


Simba and Jazzi said...

Is it a year already?! We still miss Fufu, thank goodness we have Girl girl. She has brought light back into our lives.

Asta what a lovely,thoughtful tribute to Fufu.

I wasn't lucky enough to know him but I do know his sister,my special little hammie pal Girlgirl so I'll go and put my bandana on right now.

Wags, Eric

Peanut said...

Oh we can't believe it has been a year already. It does not seem that long ago that we lost FuFu. He was the first hamsterrier we ever knew and loved.

Deetz said...

I wish I could have met FuFu...I am glad for all my furry friends and yes it is hard to lose our friends, but you are right...it is worth it to feel their love and to have known them. Girl Girl is precious to me and the first hamster I have ever known. I love her lots.

Gledwood said...

HI Asta
I come here via Daisy the Cat's blog...
Now can I ask you a question: what BREED of doggie are you?
An airedale or a wire fox terrier?
Or are the two totally and exactly the same?
My robohammies when bashed up and licked and cleaned half to death by one another do look just like airedale/wirefox puppies... I posted some pictures chez moi vol 2 the other week

Take it EZ!

Deetz said...

I have read where orange is your favorite color....Beasley sent me a collar that is orange and has skulls and bones on it...I will wear it until it turns brown....

Ashley said...

You look great in your bandana!

My dear friend just lost her dog, Daisy, in a tornado. I am doing a card drive and wondered if you would be interested in sending a card to Kendra. Let me know if you would like to participate in the card drive by emailing me at apolston [at] hotmail.com.

Hello Asta

We think you look utterly gorgeous in yout banana.

We agree that it is so very sad when we loose our dear friends, but we must remain positive and think of all the new friends we will make over the coming months/years. It is marvellous to make so many friends even though some leave us too early.

Molly and Taffy xx

PS. Hope you Mummy is feeling better now.

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

What a lovely gesture! You look cute in the banana too.

Agatha and Archie said...

Just a lovely tribute little one......Love and smoochies A+A

hi Asta, we didn't realize that it's been a whole year since we lost little FuFu. it is so sad when our friends leave us for The Bridge. that is the difficult part about having so many wonderful friends. we cry when they go away too.

but we really like your bandana. it's very pretty on you. Faya is a nice girl to send it to you all the way from Switzerland.
