As soon as I woke up..I went out to look awound, it was a yucky day..gwey and ovewcast, and dweawy

I went wight back in and took a nap on the chaiw, and watched while it wained....I figoowed the day was going to be a wash out, hehehe

But while I snept..it stopped waining...of couwse ,evewything was wet, when I woke up fwom my nap, but the sun had come out and it looked lots bettew
I went out to watch unkel S put his wind suwfing stuff away, and get out the boat wif the sails

I watched auntie Kawen watew

Smoochie Kisses!!

We are thinking of Jackson all day today and have been looking out for the Dogstar every night.

Here Asta, I found the origin of catamaran for you:

1. a vessel, usually propelled by sail, formed of two hulls or floats held side by side by a frame above them. Compare trimaran.
2. a float or sailing raft formed of a number of logs lashed together, used in certain parts of India, South America, etc.
3. a quarrelsome person, esp. a woman.
4. Canadian Dialect. a wooden sled.
[Origin: 1690–1700; < Tamil kaṭṭa-maram tied wood]

If you look at the third definition, I guess Lacie can sometimes be a Cat, too, huh? hehehe I'd better be careful my date with her is coming up soon. Do you think her shots are all up-to-date?

Your pal,


Gus said...

Lovely vacation on Long Gisland! I haven't been able to find it on any maps yet, but it looks bootiful. We are glad you got some R&R, and are keeping all four paws crossed for Jackson.


Alastriona, The Cats and Dogs said...

We love the flowers on the deck and the CAT looks like fun.

Will be praying for Jackson. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

Petra said...

OMDog, Asta, you deserve a metal because you are the bravest of the brave. I would NEVER have gone on that cat!

I'm hoping for the best as Jackson has his tests.

Petra said...

whoops! i meant "medal".

The Cat Realm said...

Not fair. I need MYRNA!!!
Where is she...?
Can you please tell her that she got tagged?
I, Brody, tagged her for a meme!!!
Oh, where are my manners... Hello Asta, nice seeing you!

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

Lon Giland looks like so much fun, Asta!!! BTW, you black spots are soooooooooooooo BLACK!! Tell the twuth...did Mommi help ya out with a little Lady C????

We have so many things crossed here for Jackson we can't even walk....no matter what happens, Jackson can feel the LOVE...we know that!

That CAT boat looks amazing! Do they have a DOG boat?? That would rock!!!!!

Do you think Jackson liked my classical ballet dance? Oh, I hope so...my toe shoes fell off in the middle of it, but it seemed to go ok...it's hard keepin' shoes on all four paws!!!

Barkin' at ya my BFF...I'm going to go wash, iron and lavender scent Jackson's sheets so they'll be fresh when he comes home. I also made the J's a couple of nerve soothing smoothies with the only additives being LOVE...we know how worried they are.....


The 3 G-Dales said...

Asta - what fun! we are boating dogs too! Our Mumsie and Daddy have a pawerboat and we go for rides all the time....isn't it pawesome to have the wind in your face?

Looks like you had a great trip and how lucky you are to get to go wiff your pawrents!

Bye- Bye Asta!

Stanley said...


You are a pup of many talents. Now you can add sailing to that long list.

I bet it was total bliss with the wind and the spray in your face! I think you found a CAT that every pup could live with!

I'm so glad you have a mommi & daddi who drag you around with them wherever they go. That's the way I think it should be!

Please send extra reviving smooches to Myrna at Casa de Crazy!

Here's a Cat-load of smooches for you!

Goober love,

Maya and Kena said...

The sun almost always comes out if you wait long enough! You were very brave to ride on that cute little boat.

Gaia the Airedale said...

Asta you have such great adventures! Im so glad the yucky clouds went away and the sun came out for you. Plus that ride with your daddy looks like fun! Though Im pretty sure Id want to be held tight so I know I wouldnt fall off into the water hehe. Yummy veggies too!

puppy breath,

Chef said...

That looks like the only kind of cat I'd like, Asta. And yes, you are a very brave girl. I'd have been shaking all over.


Eric said...

Asta. What a suprise! I didn't know there was another kind of cat either... did it purr along in the water? Brave of you to go out in it without wearing your armbands!

Wagging for good news from Jackson.The dog star is illuminated day and night now this side of the pond.

I have my paws crossed for Jackson waiting for good news!
Kisses and hugs

Agatha and Archie said...

Well we have been thinking about that boat and can't decide if we think we could go on it... probably not.......we would fall over board! Love A+A

Deb Cushman said...

You were really brave to go on the water in that cat! I would have been nervous! It's too bad about the rain and yucky weather, but what a beautiful place to rest and relax!

Deefor said...

Hey Asta
That looks like a really pretty boat. My mom's been on those but not me. The biggest cat I've ever seen. I think I'd have been a scardy-cat.


Snowball said...

Asta, you had a great adventure! I think I will love it too if I have a chance to ride in the CAT.
