Final day in Lawn Gisland

I took a snoozette in the living woom while I waited fow the hoomans to get weady

it was a pawfect summew's day..whipped cweam clouds in a blue , sunny sky wif a little bweeze

I looked all awoundand stawted focoosing on the watew

I noticed that they had a pet dolphin who was spitting watew in the flowew gawden..he looked vewy happy

I checked out all the flowews and saw which needed pwuning and watewing

meanwhile Mommi had gone ovew to a beach on Fiwe Island wif the little putput boat , to go swiming..Daddi says she's weally a duck..she loves watew sooo much, and it was the fiwst time this summew she wasn't complaining about how much she hates the heat

aftew she came back, she took an outdoow showew, and was weady fow Daddi's gwand plan


I was hesitant at fiwst....

but pwetty soon , I could have kept swimming to the othew showe

pawdon me fow the quality of the videos, but Mommi can't film and twy to catch me at the same time, and she was afwaid of me being off leash and maybe escaping fwom the yawd which is not fenced in

I came out looking like a dwowned wat( my oosooal appeawance when I'm all wet)
I think it was wude of my pawents to show me like this, but I have to admit..
I'm hooked..I loved swimming!!!
the onliest bad thing is aftewwawds I got captoowed and mawched into the outdoow showew..Mommi said if the salt watew dwied on me I would be itchy

my pawents wewe soooo pwoud of me, they couldn't stop beaming..amazing what makes hoomans happy

I was ehausted and went back inside fow a nap...
latew that day..we took the twain home and that's the end of my mini vacation on Lawn Gisland

My dawling nudnick fwiends Agatha and Archie honowed me wif this gold cawd..I weally appweciate it..fwiendship nevew wuns out, unlike money and stuff..thank you pals!!!!!!!

If you want, you and I could do a synchronized swim routine...Oh wait a minute I can't swim...

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Asta ::GASP:: You got wet??? Wow, we are very impressed. As cats, we don't really like to get wet AT ALL!!

You are a very good swimmer!

Dexter said...

You are so brave to go swimming in the ocean! You weren't afraid of sharks?

Not sure I care for your after swim look, but once you dried off you were your lovely self again.


Daisy said...

Asta, you SWAM! That is very, very impressive. I do not think I would enjoy swimming very much.

Stanley said...

Sweet ASta FuzzButt!

Are you sure you're not a wire fox water hound?! If I remember correctly you LOVED the water last year. Was this your first ever swim in the big blue ocean? I am SO PROUD of you (and your mommi & daddi for remembering to take you out into the water & not just onto it)!!!

Maybe someday we can spend a whole day swimming and wrasslin and bitey facin all over the place!

Goober love & smooches,

No swimming for me! But I do love to chase things around - is there any cat nip in there?

Molly the Airedale said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I loved your swimming videos! Sure you all had a great time!
Wet or not you alwyas look beautiful!
Congratulations on your award!
Kisses and hugs

Asta Marie said...


You are so brave to go in the water that is over your head....why I have my little pan of water, our little pool and we go in the little lake and the creek at the cottage but only til the water reaches our bellies...then we stop...maybe Gram should try throwing the ball in the water to see if we would go in the deep part to get it.....

We have to Google the place where you were...it looks beautiful but we never heard of it before.....it looks like you all had a great time...it's funny how having all that fun can tire you right out....

Rest up,
Asta Marie, WFT


Joe Stains said...

Looks like a lot of fun, except the swimming part! I am so scared of water with my flat face, but I guess you really liked it! You look so skinny when you are wet!!

Patience-please said...

Oh Asta, you are so dang cute that we get all tongue tied when we try to comment. What a natural swimmer you are!!!! Maybe that will be your pawlympic sport!!!

Wags, Eric x

Deefor said...

Swimming in the ocean you look like a star. A really great swimmer. I've never been in salty water. Hope it tasted good. I don't understand why humans are obsessed with cleaning us.
