Pawsitive Thoughts, and my Wefwidgewatow

Hi all my sweet fuwwfwiends..

I'm still in England wif my fellow nuwsies..Lacie and Agatha..we take tuwns watching ovew Jackson, but sometimes we all leave at once to give Jackson some pwivacy wif J1 and J2...
I'm out on my nighttime walk...and I was thinking of my good pal Petey's wondewful idea:

"We all know the power of prayers and of positive thinking. So here's my idea. Every night, when we go for our last walk before we go to sleep, let's look up at the big sky over our heads and send a big dose of healing energies to Jackson. Imagine, all day he'll be getting our warm rays of healing love. And for those of us in the same time zones - wow!"

.......so I looked up into the night sky..and spotted the dogstaw, and made my wish...I know all of you did too..and I believe we have the powew to make Jackson well.

Meanwhile , I asked Mommi to finally put up the pictoowes of ouw Wefwidgewatow..I was tagged fow this so long ago, that I don't even wemembew who tagged me, and who is left to tag..but hewe goes....
we have an ancient Fwidge, which will nevew get new, cause we went ouw apt. and we'we stabilized..that means we get nothing new, hehehehehe..but who cawes..it still wowks(it's only 26 yeaws old)
On the fwont of my Fwidge is a whole bunch of stuff..
(you can biggify the pictoowe by clicking on it)
you might notice Scruffy and Lacie's pictoowe, a cawd fwom Wallse..one of my pawents' favowite westauwants neaw us,
a pictoowe of Nick and Nora Charles and Asta from the ThinMan,
a copy of the painting Mommi made of Nowa when she was little, a sign that says I'm cwazy(I think)
me as a baby..
Mommi's magnet saying she fowgot to have childwen, hehehehe..
mypawents in fwont of a mooseum in Austwia, a magnet of an ocean linew,
the phone numbew fow calling a TAXI in Budapest(weal ooseful, heheh)
a cawd fwom my Dogtow
Daddi wif my angel bwuvvew Nikki 26 yeaws ago....
my fostew doggie Chad(Jax paid fow him last yeaw as a Birfday pwesent to me!!!...
and my twin bwuvvew Nicky, and his sissy Jenny , who is my half sistew..
oh yes and a pictoowe of cocktails, wif a note fwom BobT Beaw on it about fwolicking.
on the side..Mommi keeps wecipes...she can see this fwom the sink and countew, and a doggie holding notes
this is my favowite pawt of the fwidge..ackshually , it's the only pawt I can see..it's down on my level...a pictoowe of my StanlyPupboy Sweatheawt, and a twuck full of love he sent me

now fow the inside...
the fweezew has umm ,bevewages, and paprika, and fwosty paws..that's it..in NYC, we buy fwesh!

the fwidge pawt, has essentials..like eggs, and punkin, and pate, and cheese, and buttew, and yoguwt, and olives, and salami, and Milk and Pwosecco, and limoncello, and seltzew, cooling eye mask fow Mommi, and of couwse.....................................................espwesso coffee..without which my Daddi would die

and did I mention WALLYMELON?????????

Show me youws if you haven't aweady done so..and

Most impowtant..
don't fowget to make you pawsitive thoughts fly to Jackson!!!!


Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Asta,
Yah.. that's a great idea that Petey came up with. I am not only going to do it during my night walkies, I'd also do it in the day.

Joe Stains said...

We have about an hour until our last pees of the night, but we will be looking up for sure. Your fridge has lots of Mom's favorites, especially Paprika!!

Eric said...

Asta. I read Petey's lovely idea. Told him I was going to wish upon the dogstar for my hero - how wonderful we are all thinking and doing the same.

Oh and you fridge meme - the front of fridges being revealing and interesting, yours is very interesting with all those memories, nice photos,funnies and the recipes. Well. Gulp. There is nothing on my fridge.Zip.Zilch.Zero.Wonder what that says bout me...empty headed????Hehehehehe!!!!

Love, pats & pets

The Black and Tans. said...

Hello Asta

WE will look for the Dogstar tonight when we go for our last walk and we have been praying very hard for Jackson to get better.

Don't worry about Taffy looking extremely ferocious when we play, he is all teefies and pulls lot of funny faces, we really are having fun.

Have a lovely weekend in your Greenwich Village. Our hoomans have visited your Greenwich village on many occassions but that was before we came along a few years ago.

Molly and Taffy xxxxxxxxxx

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hello Asta, that was a great idea of Petey's. I think I'm feeling more like my old self today. I'm meeting Seamus later! J x

Mack said...

I am praying for that cutie boy Jackson right now!!

Jake of Florida said...

Petey had a great idea and we will do it on our evening run with Dogdad -- Dogdad and Dogstar -- what a combination!!

Woofs, sweet Asta,

Jake and Just Harry

Pippa said...

We love the picture of the dogstar, that is so nice.

We are thinking lots about jackson and have our paws crossed.


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hi Asta!

Scottie here...nice to meet you! The pictures of your fridge are so cool! And the idea of looking up at the stars in thinking about Jackson is superb! Will be thinking of Jackson tonight and until he gets well...=)


the many Bs said...

hi Asta, we are gonna send all of our healing vibes to Jackson every night. that's a good idea to send them on the dogstar. we can see the dogstar from our bedroom window too.

we like our refrigerator. we haven't posted ours yet, so we will put that on our list.

we're just kind of sad this week cuz there is so much going on with our friends, some of mom's friends too are sick and one went to the Bridge. we want to be happy and carefree. our dog brains can't deal with sadness very well. we're glad you are our friend!


Stanislaw said...

My mom would die without her coffee too! I tried it once... but I got in trouble for that. Why doesn't she get in trouble for drinking coffee, I wonder? Does your dad? Or maybe there's trouble if they DON'T have some in the morning...

Petra said...

"I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight!"

I'll look at the dogstar tonight with thoughts and prayers for Jackson.

My mom has 4 espressos before she leaves for work each morning, Asta!

Unknown said...

asta darling.. your like wallymelon too??? yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
we prayers for jackson...

send you all our love

Daisy said...

That "Chien Lunatique" magnet is very funny!

I am sending my best thoughts to Jackson.

Molly the Airedale said...

Great idea about looking towards the Heavens for the dogstar! We're going to do it! Thanks, Asta! Tell Jackson we're thinking of him on your next shift change, okay?
BTW, your wallymelon looks delicious!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Unknown said...

Keep wishing on that Dog Star, pups! Have a fun weekend Asta - hope you get to howl at the moon...

Your pal,


Peanut said...

Petey's idea is great. You have much better stuff in your fridge then we do in ours.

Moco said...

We will keep up the circle and sending healing vibes to Jackson.
Grammie says, she once had a frig that old or older. We don't have anything as interesting in our frig as you do in yours.

Princess Patches said...

Hi Asta! Our mom has had that sick feeling in the pit of her tummy ever since she heard about Jackson's test results. She's making a Jackson wheelie, right now, and her eyes keep leaking on him! We will watch the dogstar and pray and send lots of healing zen for him!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Deefor said...

Me and Arrow will say a prayer to the Dogstar too. We can't see it so clear like you can in New York City. Really nice. Your fridge has some nice pictures on it.


Maya and Kena said...

Hi Asta!

Petey's idea is magnificent! We'll be sure to do it!

Your fridge is so cool! It looks like a scrapbook, with all those great pics and stuff!

Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Chef said...

I'll be wishing on the dogstar every night til Jackson is all better, Asta darlin.'

We love your fridge door - it looks just like ours: a giant memo board!!

How'd you get so pretty?xoxxox

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

Even seeing your fridge makes me miss you!! Tell your mommi I could come keep her snuggly while you're in England if she wants.

Petey's idea is pawfect! We will definitely start sending even more pawsitive thoughts and prayers while looking at the dogstar (which looks an awful lot like a wire).

Be sure to take care of yourselves, you nursie girls. Please give Jax a daily dose of healing goober smooches (extra juicy) and tell him I love him!

Goober love & extra juicy smooches to you, my crazy lovepup,
Your Stanley Boy

Agatha and Archie said...

Well your frig looks very delish...(esp the wallymelon) We started looking at the sky last night while we were walking..PL2 did it too except she tripped while looking up...humans..Love nad kisses A+A

Koobuss said...

Kousin Asta,

Your refrigerator is very interesting. Ours is just plain boring. But, we do have wallymellon and corn on the cob. I love corn on the cob and wallymellon.

Summer is lots of fun. Even the food is better.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Boo Casanova said...

i'm sending lots of prayer and aire kisses to jackson.

i love wally melon!

wet wet licks


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

Now Asta...you can't appreciate the sacrifice I'm making typing this as Scruffy is under the desk and he just FARTED. The stench is wafting its way upward to my delicate Lakie nose....YUK!

I came home from England for 15 minutes to see if anything is new here. It isn't. I'll be back shortly. I'm bringing some boardgames for us to play with Jackson...Monopoly and the like.

Wasn't the dog star bootiful tonight? Did you see how much it looked like Jackson? I'm amazed that you got it on film...our camera doesn't work in the dark!

Barkin' at ya...see ya in a minute...

Randi said...

Hi Asta! I'm sending a ton of pawsitive energy to you to give to Jackson in England..OK!

& my mom was wondering if she needs to keep her pap-ree-ka in the freezer like your mommi...? She keeps it on the spice rack in the cupboard...maybe that why all her cooking tastes horrible..

Love & Licks,

Lacy said...

Dewey Dewster said...


When you wish upon the brightest dogstar.
It shows you care from near or far.
Healing thoughts will travel all the way.
To help sweet Jackson thru many a day.
And as dogs with blogs paw thru their prayers.
Praying Jackson's here for many more years.
If nothing else he'll know for sure.
That we all hope they find the cure.
We're sure that Jackson has a fight.
So the zen we're sending is out of sight.
And through those fluffy clouds above.
We're all sending Jackson LOVE......

Love the fridge too...it's much neater than ours is.....

Dewey Dewster here....

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

You have lots of stuff on your fridge...

I love your truck full of love...That's really sweet...

Me & my Mom are making sure we send our thoughts & prayers to Jackson every nite...

In fact, I woke my Mom up at 4:12AM this morning so we could go out & make an extra wish for him...

Abby xxxooo

Unknown said...

Madison and I will be sending our wishes out for Jackson each and every night.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dear Dr. Asta,
Thanks, my back is better after I lifted all the awards up to the mantle. Next time I just put them on the coffee table.
Please stay at Jackson's bedside. I'm OK, Doc.
I came over to see Jackson, I tried not to cry so loud.
I carried out your orders, Dr. Asta.
I looked up into the night sky..and spotted the dogstar, and made my wish. Like you I believe we have the power to make Jackson well.
Oh I just like the way you pronounce wowds, cute!

Unknown said...

Hello Darling!

I've sent Jackson MANY thoughts and prayers...

I LOVE watermelon! It be one of my favorite fruits! Your fridge is much fuller than ours! You've get better eating!

Love, Hercules

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Right now I am out in my balcony looking at the Dogstar and praying for Jackson! (there are lots of mosquitos too, I hope they are praying too!)
Your fridge has lots of things in and out of it!
Have a good night
Kisses and hugs

Faya said...

On pense tellement à Jackson que Véronique dort très mal....
Qui est le chien lunatique ? Toi ?
Hahahaha je pense que oui....
Bisous, Faya

Noah the Airedale said...

We're staying totally positive for Jackson. We send howls every night so he knows we're thinking of him.
Hey, we've got the same magnet of Stanley on our fridge hee hee. He's a popular boy.

Maya and Kena said...

Hi Asta!
We just wanted to thank you fur taking such pawsome pics at our date with Petey! We had so much fun and we're so happy you could capture such good moments!
You're a professional when it comes to pictures! You should think about having your own photo studio!
Wags and licks,
