Shocked and Disappointed Asta

I haven't told you about this tewwible miscawwiage of justice until now, cause othew stuff kept coming up...but I can not contain myself any longew

I was walking on my oosual woute in the neighbowhood, when I spotted this sign

I couldn't believe my eyes..even aftew I went weally close to look...now ouw neighbowhood has these signs up all the time..a lot of TV shows and Films get made awound ouw stweets...mostly it used to be Sex in the City, ow Law and Owdew in its infinite vawieties...but this time it was.......NICK AND NORA

This is unbelievable my fwiends....HOW COULD THEY??????????
evewyone knows that the wole of Asta has to be played by a WFT..and I suwe wasn't notified...
now wewe any of my fwiends..like Agatha and Archie, Gussie, my Cousins Butchy and Snickers, Jackson, kousin Koobuss, Eric Squawe Face, my twin Asta la Vista, Buster, Axel, Lenny, Dewey Dewster ow his Mom Asta Marie, Jake and Just Harry, Scruffy, Luna, Romeo, Ozzy, Sam ,Magic Fee, hew pawents Mango and Pawty, Tell , Mack, Bebe, Banba ow Dean-O..
( I know any of them would have been mawvelous in the wole)

I think we need to hiwe a weally good lawyew..this is unbelievable...cleawly a case of DISCWIMINATION...they'we pwobably using some doggie who is welated to the pwoducew ow something...thewe was no open call....a DISGWACE!!!!!!!

Mommmi twied to calm me down wif a nocciola Gelato

Ok ..ummmm........let me taste

Oh, All Wight..I'll eat it, but I'm still upset


Eric said...

Asta. Thank you for bringing that gross miscarriage of justice to our attention. A clear case of dogscrimination. Us Wireys of the World must unite and fight this all the way. Hehe...we won't need to wear the curly wigs in court cos we got our own!!!

Learned wags, Eric x x x x

Molly the Airedale said...

The gelato looks like it did the trick! What cute photos, Asta!
Clearly they have chosen the wrong dog for the lead!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Kyanite said...

Obviously a major mis-carriage of justice here - where's the petition, I'm ready to sign.

Hope the ice-cream helped.

Love, pats & pets

Moco said...

How could they even consider anyone but you for that part? Common sense has taken a holiday on that one. A treat always makes it better and then a nap.
Did you ever get to see Vincent D'Onofrio or Jerry Orbach? Grammie thinks that they are/were wonderful. We know her bubble doesn't hit center though.

Lacy said...

w00f's Ms Asta, yummmm dat gelato looks pawsome...me iz sorrwy they wuz mean and didnt get a terror oops terrier fur dat job...u wooda been pawfect fur the job..

Abby said...

Treats alway help...

Without you in it, that movie is really gonna stink!!

I sure won't go see it!!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Doggie discrimination! Nepotism, we bet!!! Well, without you in it the movie will be terrible and we refuse to see it!!!

That gelato looks delicious and Mommy says that you are just the cutest doggie in the world!!!

Smoochie kisses!!!

Asta, that you so much for your get well wishes. The smoochie kisses made me feel so much better. Maybe, since my daughter will be going to NYU soon, we can meet? I would love to meet your parents and YOU! It it is okay with your Parents, we will work something out!

Smoochie kisses and much love from me!

Love, Auntie Deb

Ruby Bleu said...

so I'm not sure what is worse, the discrimination of my wirey friends OR the fact that the are remaking such a classic!!! Who can replace William Powell or Myrna Loy, huh? Who??? No one...that is correct. (I'm a real AMC fan Asta...hee hee hee)

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Gus said...

Wait, Wait...do not panic. Muzzer knew that no one would make a Nick and Nora movie without calling your and Mommi...so here is what it is about:

so, they are "only" using the title, prolly not the characters.

ps...you had us really worried! Maybe if you just show up, they will say...OH MY, WE NEED AN ASTA!

Daisy said...

Oh no! This seems very, very wrong. But a gelato can make many things seem better.

Jake of Florida said...

We agree with Gussie -- let them see your adorable wirey face and they will immediately change the script and the cast to include you (or any of us, tee hee hee).

Jake and Just Harry

BrandytheGreat said...

Asta! How could they??? Maybe you should just turn up at the set on that day, and then they can see how perfect you are for the role!

Victor Tabbycat said...

Oh Asta, it must be an oversite! They haf to use you! You haf the rite name an you know the nayborhood. My beans haf the Thin Man movie collection, but didn't know there will be a new one!

Snowball said...

Asta, I think Gus might be right. If they see you they might just realise that they needed you. The gelato look delicious.


Lorenza said...

Enjoy your gelato and forget about that!
Kisses and hugs

Fred said...

Can't believe it! An outrage! (You would even give the original Asta a run for his money.) ;)

Joe Stains said...

Well this really is TERRIBLE! But life is too short to get too upset about something like that, especially when there is gelato around. I bet it didn't taste nearly as good as it did in Italy, though!

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...


This is a travesty. How could they not call you, you would be pawfect for that roll. I would call the actors guild and complain. I am sure glad you got to have some yummie gelato.

Luna Licks,

PS: Monday Mommy is taking me for a ferry ride to Connecticut for my plucking. I look like a Chia Pet.

DK & The Fluffies said...

WHAT??!!! How could they not pick you? Quick - call W.S.

Anonymous said...

Asta, we will all boycott that movie when it comes out, if they don't change there minds and cast you in the most famous role we will all get together and leave pee-mail on their red carpet.

Anonymous said...

Asta, well of course if it was a real Thin Man remake they should have cast you! Maybe you need an agent to look for any Thin Man or Ghost and Mrs. Muir remakes. We think you are beyooootiful!!

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

Asta...you look so 'dorable snarfin' that GELATO down!!!!

I know I couldn't play the role of Nora...but it's a disgrace that they passed over you and all our foxie friends....that's totally insufferable!!

Asta...I need ya for some nursing shifts and well..I'm just not comfortable with this complicated twauma case I have here...ya better come and see!!!!!


KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

That is the cutest picture of you gobbling that gelato. Yum, that does look yummy.

Stanley said...

Astaroni FB!

While I am just as outraged as you, I can't help but notice that you are the cutest gelato-eating pupgirl I have EVER seen! Forgive my digression, but you ARE very fetching with gelato on your cute licorice nosey nose!

I will clean it off for you. Don't worry.

Goober love & smooches,
Your Stanley Boy

Noah the Airedale said...

That's just not right Asta. You should have at least been offered the part. I wonder who will be get the role???? If they got you to play Asta they wouldn't even have to change your name. Those producers are so silly.

Hugs and tail wags

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Asta -

A movie being made in your neighborhood and they didn't choose you? That is unfair. We think we will boycott the movie.

That gelato looks delicious!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Harry said...

We don't know that programme, but I agree, it's simp[ly not on that they didn't ask you to star in it!

Jans Funny Farm said...

That's not right. And you shouldn't sell out your indignation over a gelato, Asta. You must retain it! And an attorney - immediately. You should have been notified there was an opening for you to star in your movie.

Willow the Black Dale said...

Asta this is my first visit to your blog. I come by and what do I find? This misjustice, the outrage, the lack of judgement about Asta, Nick and Nora!!! Oh the shame that you were NOT asked to play Asta. I am sure you are just as talented as the original(as our other WFT friends). Get that petion ready and this dale is ready to sign it! The Thin Man lives forever!!!!

Toffee said...

I am obviously an "un-cultured" chihueagle since I do not know of this show "Nick & Nora." Since you were so upset, however, I will need to look it up! ...after I finish my snack of "pirate's booty" that is.

It is kind of hard to be upset after getting Nocciola gelato isn't it? (is Nocciola hazelnut??) Yummy!

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh dear,Archie just fainted he is so upset. UNBELIEVABLE how dare they . We most def. need a lawyer. CALL SCRUFFY( and he looks so handsome in his lawyer suit) What's that Arch??? Oh, he's up...he said Scruffy would be good if you could drag him from the poker game..Love A+A

Petra said...

My dear, sweet, lovely, beautiful Asta...how could they? Just HOW could they pass you up? You were meant for this role, and I am heartbroken to hear that you were overlooked.

Yes, gelato might help temporarily, but justice must be done. If I start a petition, we'd get a zillion names on it before long. Shall I?

Toffee said...

Oh Asta!
I am so embarrassed that I didn't know Nick & Nora - I hope you are not too mad! At least I am not so uncultured that i didn't know about gelato! Then again I do live in the "little Italy" of Boston. My pawrents just booked their trip to NY for a wedding in November. They are flying in on Thursday night and flying out Sunday am. Mom said that she would love to meet up with you and Petey at a nearby park to you if your humans have any time. It would likely be on Friday, Nov. 14th as the wedding reception is at a Picnic house in Brooklyn I think. They are staying in Brooklyn but will be touring NYC on the Friday and would love to meet up with you!!

Deb Cushman said...

We are so sorry you had such upsetting news! (But the gelato looks yummy!)

Asta Marie said...

Kousin Asta...it is a good thing that you are on the job patrolling the streets of NY looking for such a miscarriages of justice. Why with all the trick digital photography that they have today, there might not be a WFT in the movie at all....

I say sue....can we get Clarence Darrow. What, he's dead...

What about Perry Mason? Dead too?

Surely we can hire the lawyer that got OJ off, Johnnie Cochran....dead as well?

Well, how about Rudi Giuliani , a fellow New Yorker, I bet he is looking for a job about now.......but you're right about any one of us being able to fill the role....all they had to do is ASK!!!

Asta Marie, WFT

Girl Girl Hamster said...

That's no fair. They sure put you as the star

~ Girl girl

Jessie, Jake and Lola said...

Hmmm that is horrible - get a lawyer quickly!

Princess Patches said...

This is sooooo not fair! What were they thinking? You or any of our other WFT buddies would make a great star! Somedog should bite their leggies!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Frasier said...

Hi Asta
Thats a horrible injustice !
You need more goodies to tide you over this horrible time !!!
How is daddy doing.

Clover said...

Oh no! Sorry to hear about that Asta - you would have been a great movie star if you had had the opportunity to audition!! I hope the ice cream helped to make you feel better.
Love Clover xo

Juno said...

Sissy Asta!!

Is Nick & Nora new tv show? If so You should be part of the team coz you're so pretty!!

If we're given yummy gelato we would forgive anything. hehehe.

Momo & Pinot

Dexter said...

Asta! This is shocking. Not only are you a WFT, but your name is, like, ASTA!!! Hello? Maybe we should organize a protest.


Renna the Princess Puppy said...

How rude! ... Is gelato good? I like homemade icecream, thats all I've ever had. :)

slobber licks

Deetz said...

That is completely unbelieveable. You would have been perfect for the role...are they crazy not notifying you...Cannot believe. I protest and will not watch the show.
I am glad the ice cream made you feel better.....

Crikit, Sparky, Ginger! said...

Lovely Asta! we sorry yous are troubled but how nice of a treat to help you furget the injustice. We missed you soooo much while we were away and trotted over to say hi and we'll be back to catchup on all your loveliness xoxo

Love Licks & waggin TX tails barking loud at those casting agents

Peanut said...

that is a miscarriage of justice I tell you. My mom would love to see law and order CI filmed. She loves that show.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, it's a travesty! But I'm sure the ice cream helped soothe away the injustice of it all! J x
