Hilton Head on location

I missed evewyone soooo much!, but now I'm back, and want to tell you about my faboolous vacation in Hilton Head!

We went to La Guawdia Aiwpowt, and wewe flying Delta..so I went to check out the plane..it's tiny...I hope we all fit

aftew a totally uneventful flight(not a peep out of Petey or me)..no one even knew we wewe aboawd, so I think what they chawge fow puppies is widicoolous..we'we not even ovewweight hand luggage...anyway I digwesss..................we landed in Savannnah, and Mommi waited wif us, while Daddi collected luggage, and aunt Jane got a caw..isn't it cool that they have wocking chaiws???
TAH DAH!!! hewe we awe in Hilton Head, whewe Petey's Gwama lives..it's bootiful

we wewe hungwy so we headed out to get some food and dwinkies

The Salty Dog owns lots of shops and westauwants..I think he's a wetiwed wealthy doggie

went down to the beach to check it out fow ouw location...it was ovewcast, but pawfect tempewatoowe
Petey and I had to find out if anyone else had used this location..we didn't want to be copycats

this is the pawfect season...not so many hoomans, and lots of woom to wun

I was thwilled
couldn't get enough of the view
we intewviewed a few mowe extwas
Petey and I discussed the details...he of couwse was still thinking in tewms of a film about his ball

I can't budge him fwom his ideas

I suggested pawhaps switching to a wed ball

I bowwoed his lifejacket, to twy it out..but I found it confining..I pwefew to swim "au Natoowal"

The watew is mawvelous

Then I got weally insulted by Petey

I know I have a long nose, but I didn't wealise it was this ugly...do you think I need suwgewy to fix it?

this guy lives just in thee pond at the back of Petey's Gwama's house...do I weally look like him?

I'm depwessed and pooped..I mean I had a faboolous time, but now I'm self conscious about my nose
I got weady fow bed and pwayed fow all my fwiends who awe sick and all the fuwwfwiends who awe homeless
good night evewyone....I have lots mowe pictoowes, but that's fow anothew day, smoochie kisses

Asta, I think your nose is lovely. Petey might just be jealous because you are better at sniffing out foodables.

Hi, Asta -

It looks like you had a lot of fun in Hilton Head. You don't look like an alligator - you're too cute. We like your pajamas.

Love -

You tell Petey that he wasn't very nice, you have a loverly nose, all the more for Nanny to kiss. Missed you, glad you had fun, I don't know how you became soooo brave, I would be scared of the ocean, in fact any body of water.
Nanny is thinking of a visit to NYC and I get to come along, only thing is she will drive, cause I am afraid of twains. Are you up for a visit and some bellyrubs?

Hugs & smoochies

Asta, I only said you looked like an alligator because with your haircut, your nose looks longer and pointier than usual. Plus, you're always snapping those teeth at me!

Besides, alligators are beautiful. That's why alligator bags and shoes sell for so much more money than any other kind!

Your pal,


Gus said...

Foul, Foul on Petey for saying your nose looks like an alligator. We have docked him ten points. However, he made a splendid recovery in his response, so he can have two back.


Noah the Airedale said...

Is that pj shot the cutest thing ever or what!!!!!!
Asta, please don't book yourself in for surgery. Your nose is beautiful.
We hope you have the best barkday!!!

Don't mind Petey, long nose long love long kiss, baby!

Asta, what is wrong with that boy?? You definitely do NOT look like an alligator. You are beautiful and so is your nose. And so are your pajamas! How cute are you? I'm speechless seeing you like that in your ummma .. nightieclothes.

Happy birthday tomorrow. Hope you have lots of treats and presents. T


Joe Stains said...

Petey is crazy, you do not look like an alligator at all!! He is too caught up in his ball mania to think straight apparently! It does look nice and calm there at the beach, not a lot of kids and loud people, just nice waves.

Stanley said...

Astaroni Sweetpea!

YOU ARE BACK, lovepup o' mine! And, you look FABULOUSLY rested and sun-kissed.

Personally, I think Petey's like a pesky little brother when it comes to you. He's probably afraid your natural beauty would take away from his ball's performance in the movie. But, like Gussie said, he recovered pretty well with his comment. So, I won't go kick his booty.

You always look so adorably smoochable in your jam jammies. Thank you for those photos. We all felt those prayers, and SOOOO missed your sweet face while you were gone! I was having major AWS (Asta Withdrawal Syndrome). Thank you for relieving my pain!

Goober love & smooches,
Your Stanley

hey Asta, we are wishing you a happy happy barkday, little fuzzy butt girlie.

we sure hope that Stanley didn't get jealous of you and Petey going on vacation together. that looks like a really neat beach. we bet there were lots of good sniffs there.

we don't think you look like an alligator. in our previous post we showed a picture of Brody as an alligator. we think he is half alligator & half poodle. hee hee! you're way cuter than Brody!


Deb Cushman said...

Asta, we don't think you look like an alligator! Your nose is just fine! Petey must have been being grumpy.

It looks like, other than the alligator remark, you had a great time on the beach. And...we love your jammies!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Petey rascal!
You look great with your new haircut!
Glad you had fun!
Kisses and hugs


T-man Angel said...

Awww...you're so cute in your jammies!!! I love them :)

Wow, that alligator sure looks scary. T-man had a long nose too...I think it's a sign of intelligence in dogs (not in alligators though).

Did you sit with your mom on the plane? Did you have to ride in one of those carriers?

Quel magnifique endroit pour des vacances. C'est vraiment un coin de paradis. Je me réjouis déjà de la suite. J'adore de voire dans ton pyjama. Tu es tellement mignone. Je te souhaite encore un joyeux anniversaire avec plein de surprises. Bisous, Faya & Dyos

Koobuss said...

Hi Kousin Asta!

WOW!! Looks like you had lots of fun. I love the beach photos. Did you get to swim in the ocean?

I don't think you look at all like an alligator. For one thing, you are not green, or whatever color they are. You also don't have any scales. Wiry fur is much better. Also, you are taller and not nearly as long as they are, so don't worry about it. And, yes, you are much cuter.

Nice PJs, too.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Dear Asta,
It looks like you had a wonderful trip! How was the water? Did you know that if you got in, that you could swim ALL THE WAY to Italy??? But it would take a long time, so it is better to come over by plane.

Thank you so much for the sweet post you wrote on Roscoe's blog. I knew you were out of town, so it was such a sweet surprise!

Sending you kitty kisses from Italy. And by the way, Roscoe and I have always thought you are beautiful! You are perfect just the way you are so don't change a thing!

Look at you in your PJ's, how cosy. looks like a great trip.

Hi Asta - it's me coming back to wish you a Happy Birthday (am I right?) and to tell you I really DO like your pyjamas - and your furry butt! (kind of thought that was intentional) Where would we dogs be if we couldn't flash our tails?

lots of licks & love

You are just one little jet setter aren't you. What a wonderful time you must have had. I think I liked everything about your wonderful trip except the the gator looked pretty mean. Your PJ's were too, too, cute. Always a fashion girl you are.
Oh, Happy birthday sissie.

I am a little bit crabilated at Petey for being mean to you. He can go jump in a lake as far as I'm concerned. Your nose is bee-yoo-tee-ful. And your jammies are super cute.

I heard it was your birthday. I hope you are having a great one!

Lady Kaos said...

Looks like a lot of fun! I think your nose is very cute and is fine the way it is!
Happy birthday!

Daisy said...

Wow, you and Petey sure had a fun adventure! Asta, I have seen many alligators, and you do not look like one. I think your snout is adorable! And perfect for planting kisses on.

ps: Those are CUTE pajamies!

A message from Petey's Mom.

This Petey-bashing has got to stop. Petey is a sweet, patient, friendly little dog. He invited Asta on vacation, gave her the big bedroom and a bed of her own, shared his toys, his leashes, his food bowls, even his bug repellent with her. He is not crabby or jealous or a "pesky little brother." In fact, he never complained when Asta would try to take toys away from him, snap at him or hit him in the head with her paws. He never "said" Asta looked like an alligator, I did! And it was with affection.

Sorry for the tone of this email, but I'm just not going to sit back and let Petey get bashed when he's done NOTHING wrong.

Blogging is supposed to be fun, but if everyone's going to paint Petey as a bad guy, this may well be the last you hear from him.

Sorry to write this on your birthday Asta, but enough is enough. You can feel free to delete it if you want to.

Fred said...

Asta, your pajamas are fabulous! I would love a pair of those (but more masculine, of course)! Please let us all know where you found them! ;)

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! Just stopping by to wish you happy birthday....again! You and Petey are so lucky to be such good friends. Friends can tease each other and play together all the time! Petey, I think you are just adorable! I want to meet you sometime when I come to NYC. I'm so glad that Asta has such a wonderful friend!!!

Love, Auntie DeB

Dexter said...

Asta - Just because you look like an aligator doesn't mean that's a bed thing. Petey didn't say you look like an ugly aligator, right?

Besides, as the last photo shows, it is possible to get the camera right to kind of minimize your schnoz. Maybe you need a contract that you can only be filmed from certain angles.

What a great vacation.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Dear Asta,

You and Petey look like you had a great time in Hilton Head. Thank you so much for your invite while my Mom and Dad are away. Valerie the lady who will be watching me looks very excited to be watching me. Of course I had to give her Luna Licks when I met her.

She is so glad that Mom and Dad let me sit with them on the sofa while they watch TV. Chat with you soon.

Luna Licks,
