Birfday Suwpwises and gifts

I am a lucky lucky Giwl!!!!!

my twin Nicky doesn't blog, but he wites me aways, and we awe vewy close..so Happy Birfday Nicky!
I am TWO today, and I feel like the luckiest pup in the wowld!

I just got back fwom a faboolous vacation that my fwiend Petey took me on, whewe I got to wun like the wind, swim in the ocean..see all sowts of wondwous wildlife, and eat ice cweam!
And today i was ovewwhelmed by all the good wishes and love fwom all my wondewful fwiends.

My Dawling Stanley wote me a loong lettew full of goobew love, and then called so I could heaw his voice too...sigh, what a wondewful pupboy he is...I'm so vewy amazed at my good luck.

Fiwst thing this mowning, my Dawling fwiend Opus and his angel bwuvvew Roscoe, gathewed up a bunch of my fwiends and came to suwpwise me wif balloons, a tiawa, an owange cake, and oodles of owange flowews...this was especially teawy touching cause of Roscoe having to cwoss the bwidge just befowe theiw thiwteenth birfday...I am soo gwateful and deeply touched my fwiends and theiw ovewflowing love.
as anothew incwedible suwpwise..the execootives of CCSI have offewed me a position on theiw boawd as head Costoome designew..wif all the pwivilidges, my own palm pilot, and compoootew.
This is an extwaowdinawy honow..I humbly and thankfully accept!

I was still weeling fwom these events, when My BFF Lacie sent me this cawd, and then showed up wif Kousin Koobuss, to whisk me away on my vewy own 1940s adventoowe..We'we going to Casablanca...zoweeeeeee!!!!

"Asta...Koobie and I swung by to pick you up for a surprise birthday trippie...you get to pic the destination...I doubt we will have a camera along as Mumsie is going to commit suicide after developing this picture....I thought we looked rather nice. The vintage airplane (if it doesn't crash...) is going to Boston to get Aggie...then make numerous other stops to get all ur other girlfriends for a FAB 1940's celebration...hmmm...this has a familiar theme....I'm sure we'll find a piano player somewhere!!!!!!!!!"


Lotsa love," Laciegirl

Then came all the cawds fwom fwiends..I can't show you the E-cawds that I got fwom Petey , Agatha and Archie, and Maggie and Mitch.....................but twust me they wewe faboolous.

Happy Birthday Asta! I am telling Archie when to start singing.......Love and a million kisses Agatha and Archie

and this is one of the bestest pwesents evew!
Jackson sponsowed Chad last yeaw fow my Birfday, and I was going to take ovew this yeaw, but genewous Jax and his pawents have done it again...Chad is a dawling teddy Beaw looking doggie who can't be adopted, but gets all the love and cawe at the dog twust in England..THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOW THIS!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

This is Ximui and Chubs, we listened to Mango who did the calculation on your countdown barkday calendar and came up with the date 9-26!
We shouldn't have listened to him, therefore the gift will be a little late.
Please email to us at vx163@yahoo.com.
Love you, hugs and looooong kisses to beautiful Asta.
