Terrier meet-Cancer Walk at Bear Mountain

As you all know, I was scawed it would wain and I'd be in fow anothew howwible baf wight aftew the walk...
the day stawted out foggy and cold, and misty...but no wain..it was a bootiful wide along the Hudson Wivew and then in gweenewy to Beaw Mountain. This is how it looked when we awwived, wif mist buwning off as the day wowe on..by the end, it was sunny and 70 degwees.we picked up Jeeves and his Mom ,Amy in the city. Jeeves and I behaved like little angels in the caw..we kissed hello, and then settled down and didn't wiggle about ow anything
We got thewe, and the west of ouw pals hadn't awwived....I wowe my banana fwom Stanley, wif the kisses all ovew it, cause I didn't have one of the bootiful official Tshiwts.
Whewe is evewyfoxy?????????

Yeah!!!!!! LUNA and hew pawents came!!!!
Luna is pulling towawds Jeeves, while I'm oblivious, hehehe

Ohhh! now Ozzy and Romeo awe hewe!!!!!! I'm saying Hi to Romeo, while Jeeves is kissing Ozzy
This is so exciting!

greeting Ozzy and Romeo at once

kiss kiss kiss.........finally the gangs all hewe

Luna is standing off to the side while the west of us awe tangling, hehehehehe

left to wight:Ozzy,Romeo,Luna,Me, Jeeves wif his back to us, and Smitty

I saw an aiwedale..and wan ovew..Maybe it's one of my deaw fwiends..ow dawe I hope ???My Stanley?????
but Nooooo...this was a guy named Winston.
Still He was vewy fwiendly and cute and I went to say hello, and tell him about all of my aiwefwiends..and my Lovepup Stanley
Finally time fow the walk to begin
The Foxy Bwigade..Romeo, Ozzy, Luna, Me behind Jeeves ,Jessie (Smitty's little Spaniel sistew) , and Smitty
The woot was awound the lake, and it was bootiful..fwesh spwing aiw..this dogwood was vewy appwopwiate (it doesnt weally look like a dog, but I love the name and the flowews)
We climbed a wock fow a gwoup pictoowe
Jeeves, Smitty,Luna, Romeo, Ozzy and Me
then Winston came and wanted a pictoowe wif me

don't they look gweat in theiw official Wiwestock Tshiwts???
I was Jelly , cause I didn't have one..something about wunning out of money..sheeesh!

Ozzy was checking out this boof of toys at the end of the walk

I asked if he got anything...nooooo

Ozzy the cutie...we all got goodie bags aftew the walk..that's what those puwina bags awe

I'm pwacticing a dance move..thewe was moosic fwom the loud speakews and i just can't stand still if thewe is moosic
nothing gets Foxys to weally pay attention like a hambuwgew "awe you going to shawe??????"
hanging out aftew the walk

Thewe were contests and demonstwations..boowing..we just wanted to eat

Jen, Ozzy and Romeo's Mom. baked vewy special peamut-buttew-cawob cookies fow all of us!!! She even had them in the most bootiful boxes (wed chinese food containew shape wif white bones all ovew it...and boy wewe they yummy!!!!! Thank you so much auntie Jen!!!!!!!

Hi Little Sweetie Asta,

Jessie & I sure enjoyed walking with you and everyone else and meeting your Mom & Dad. Your Dad was so nice not to be bothered by Jessie's howling - she's a little mama's girl!

We all have to get together and do that again!

Your pal,
Smitty (and Jessie too!)

Lacy said...

Looks like Jessie was out foxed! Ha!

Looks like you had soooo much fun pretty Asta. I wish I could have been there to cheer you on!!

PeeS: Did my healing Macky sugars make Mommi feel a little better?

Deetz said...

Oh Asta, those pictures were wonderful to look at...My mum says she likes your mums hair and thinks your mum is pretty. You looked so sharp in your bandana that I don't think you needed a shirt at all. You are so classy!
I am so glad you did the walk and its for such a good cause and got to see friends. You are very sweet to make the cocker spaniel feel at home around all the terrors.

Katie said...

Sam was so upset that he was not able to do that he has gone to bed and cannot comment. I sure looks like you guys had a lot of fun for a GREAT cause.

Did you try the agility at all??

Katie, Zorra, and Sam

Abby said...

Sassy Kat said...

How proud of you I am that you did this walk. What a trooper you are! I have never seen so many cute doggies in one place before. Everyone looked so cute especially wearing their shirts. I had to smile and think to myself after your post yesterday showing how your dad dried your, well you know what, with the dryer how many of the other doggies there had the same thing done to them.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

B said...

Sigh. My moms going to walk against cancer this weekend and we thought I could come with and have a good time and raise some spirits but my mom's mean aunt said 'no'. She's mean that's why she said it. I guess I'll just be with them in spirit except mom's aunt.

Looks like you had a lovely walk though!



Juno said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Bear Mountain is such a great setting for your walk. The photos are brilliant. So many of your foxy maties joined you Asta. You are all soooo cute. Pinky loves a wire!!!
Gosh you even got to meet another dale. I wonder if that is the Winston that won Airedale Idol on Planet Airedale the first year it was held??? Hmmmmm.

Hi, Asta -

You must have had a "pawsome" weekend meeting all of those WFTs at once. You are such a cutie when you dance. Kaci likes to dance but she is not as graceful as you.

Is your Mommi feeling better? We hope so.

Those goody bags you all got look very interesting - can you tell us what was inside them?

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Oh what a wonderful day! All of the pictures are amazing! Asta, you are such a cutie! Thanks for sharing your day with us! Congratulations on finishing the walk!

The goodie bags look great!

Toffee said...

What an excellent day you had! It looked like everyone had a terrier-ific time at the walk! How far did you have to drive to get to that pretty place? It is really kewl that all of the terriers got along so well - I am not sure that Riley, my JRT brother, would be as good!
your pal,

p.s. may I add a link to your blog?

Cassidy said...

That looks like a super duper fun day out! Me loved seeing all the photos, and all in a great cause too, whee!

That looks like a paw-stacular day!!

I would love it if I were able to meet a bunch of danes!


Petra said...

What a wonderful way to help fight cancer. I love the picture of you guys at the Finish Line!

Deetz said...

You don't have to thank me, Asta..Its true. I think you and your mummy look like movie stars and should have your own star for how beautiful you are. My mummy says she is 44, I am not sure how old that is in doggie years, but its gotta be old...she says she feels like she is 82 sometimes. But I think she is a cutey and I luv her alot.

Agatha and Archie said...

oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh if only of only we could have gone...We thought of you all day...Of course we might have spiced things up alittle(meaning we might not have been as good as you all were!!!) What a lovely time had by all!!!! PL2 used her bag that day! Love A+A

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Did you hear me barking to you, all the way from the UK? J1 wore her Wirestock t-shirt and carried her tote bag on Sunday so we were with you in spirit. I so wish I could have been there. Anyway, congrats on completing the walk and raising money for this worthy cause. J x

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni FuzzButt!

You guys looked like a Wirey Foxy Dance Troupe out there! So gorgeous together. It must have looked like an invasion of spunky pups coming down the trail!

I am SO PROUD of you and your buddies, Asta! You guys raised money and awareness for a great cause! And, you got to use your ambassadorial skills too! I love the way you reached out to Miss Jessie to make her feel at home, and how you flew and danced all over the place!

I WISH that could have been me, but I'm glad you got to meet Winston. He looks like a fine dale pup. I bet his parents are still shaking their heads thinking about you having a long distance boyfriend. Did they think your mommi was crazy wearing my t-shirt?

Give your mommi & daddi big smooches from me, and I'm sending extra goobery smooches for you and your tired paws!

Goober love,
Stanley Boy

Ben & Darling said...
