Hi, Asta -

We are first! Yippee! You look so cute carrying that ball. Mama says that my (Hershey) older sister did things like that. She would puncture the ball and carry it just like you.

Congratulations on your medals in the Pawlimpics. We probably won't get any because we entered late. But Lenny did great pictures of us for the Bone Relay.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

You would think that the humans would know that us terriers can do anything!

I love making the huge balls fit in my mouth so I can carry it around! Sometimes it makes kids cry, but they get over it!

Hehehehe! Go Asta Go! Go Asta Go!

Mommy is laughing so hard at these pictures! Asta...you were very determined to get that ball! You are so smart!!!

Mommy says ::Hi Ami & George!::

These pictures are just wonderful!!!

Unknown said...

Ahh, and Asta, you sure told that ball who was boss yesterday at the dog run as well. It's fun to shake that big ball for all its worth, although it's heavy enough you get kind of a head rush!

Your pal,


Peanut said...

Good job on the ball.

What's that saying about woo can fool some of the people some of the time, blah blah blah. Well, Woo can't be fooled. Great job, Asta.

Gus said...

Asta Sweetie: We love the picture of you and the ball! You certainly made sure it knew you were the boss. How did Daddi ever take that picture when he was laughing so hard?


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

Whoa...ya killed it Asta girl!!! Pawsome work!!

I'm plannin' on gettin' to Gussie's at dinnertime...change into a freshly starched uniform and feed him...steak and baked potato...

I thought he should take some fresh air tonight and have a snackie at bedtime.

Barkies, Asta...love, Lacie

Pee ess...Stan still hasn't "given up" the diamond!

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

Need any jewelry???

Heh heh heh...


Anonymous said...

Our person laughed a lot, this reminded her of her WFT Maggie. Maggie loved to play soccer with big balls and also liked to get the ball in her mouth the same way!
Sure looks like fun Asta.

Daisy said...

Asta, I think you could find a solution to any problem!

Petra said...

Asta, you are one talented girl! What a way to show the ball who is boss!

Congrats on your award, too.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Congratulations on your medal! You look like you are super athletic with that ball.

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

I'm feeling some pressure here.

I know that this post is about YOU, not ME, but when I look at all the comments about how great you are, then Joey's comment wondering how you aren't married yet...

Well. I don't know what to do! You are SO AMAZING and deserve anything your heart desires, but I'm just not quite ready to get married, and I feel guilty for hoping you will wait for me.

You have to know, though, that you are adored and loved with all my goober heart! I wiggle all over at the mere mention of your name.

By the way, what did Joey mean about destroying balls and it being related to marriage?

Goober love & a double dose of admiring goob smooches,

Mack said...

You like doing that too???
My soccer ball that I got for Christmas lasted 12 seconds!!

Chef said...

Asta! Good work on the ball. I have so many big punctured balls in my back yard too. I find them in the street, take them home and go to work on them. No ball to big for a dog, right?

Congratulations on the stick medal. You're so cute, it's no wonder you beat me!!


Gaia the Airedale said...
