That looked a lovely walk along the river. Our hoomans lived in Battery Park for 6 months a few years ago and they loved to walk along the river. Fantastic you had such a sunny day as well.

We are thinking of Jackson today, we do so hope his tests all come out fine.

Hi sweet Asta! Thank you for taking us along on your wonderful walk! I wish I could have been there too! You and Petey sure know how to have fun! Wonderful pictures of your Mommy, Daddy & Auntie Karen!

Hope you have a wonderful day today!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dear Dr. Asta,
You took your day off to enjoy the walk along the river. I wish I was there. Cool New York, I want to visit there and meet you up at the doggy pool. I love the doggy pool, New Yorkers know how to treat us doggies.
My mom says NY moms are beautiful and photogenic. I say you lady NY doggies are photogenic and beautiful!

BenTheRotti said...

Looks like you had a wonderful day with Petey and your humans. Those doggy pools look great! We have nothing like that here, then again I would probably be a little bit big for them! Keeping all things crossed for Jackson.

Gus said...

Wowser! what a woonerful walkie. And I love the bone shaped pool thingy. Probably wouldn't get in, but it sure looks cute.


Mack said...

You live in such a beautiful place Asta!!

We didn't do anything but sleep yesterday!!

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, that was a terrific walkie with Petey. we like those swimming pools that you visited and the view of the statue of liberty and that huge ship. that is a scenic place where you live. we have no idea what a city like NY is like, there is so much to see and sniff.


Fred said...

Ooh, I hope Jackson's dogtor visit goes well!
Meanwhile, great pictures! My Old Girl loves New York and wants to visit again one day (with me, of course). I know how you feel about stopping for water--such a distraction, but necessary when it gets warm!
Thanks for sharing your adventure!

Toffee said...

It looks like you had a wonderful day with your friends and family! Nice to see that auntie Jane is able to take long walks with your friend Petey again!

Hey! When EXACTLY is your barkday? I know it is coming up soon (end of month or beginning of next month?). Let me know so I can get started on my shopping!

Deetz said...

wow, I loved seeing all those boaters and the statue and that big boat that goes woohoo....how cool. And you got to look threw those really cool things sticking out of the ground. What a fantastic day. I am paw praying all the time for Jackson...I am so worried about him.

Petra said...

Whew! I can see why you went home and slept, Asta. I got tired just looking at all of the walking you did, but you sure had a happy labor day!

Deefor said...

That looks like a fun doggie run. Nice to have a pool on a hot day. We are keeping Jackson in our hearts and saying a prayer to the doggie star.


Eric said...

Along the board walk, down by the seeaaaa...that's what I'm singing as I write this Asta! Aw I wish I was walking with you but now I see your photos it's like I was! I loved seeing the statue, the woowoo ships,Petey on his mountain, the doggie run, the pretty flowers, the pretty 2 leggededs and of course you and Petey looking hot (as in cool, he,he)in fabulous New York. I'm so wagging you all had such a lovely day.

Joe Stains said...

wow you guys had a great day. It is very nice that the runs have nice little pools for you guys. Well, if you liked water I guess. I don't.

You guys sure look pooped at the end.

We are going to hop over and send some love to Jackson.

Chef said...

What a great walk that was, Asta! And you got to go with Petey. Next time we're in NYC we're going to go there too. I'm really impressed with the dog pools. How cool! I love NY.

Another fun adventure? You are so lucky! Look at those dog pools!! That is really cool!!

Moco said...

You had a lovely day. We got to watch Grammie clean out a bedroom and organize while epsiode after episode of the The Closer played on the talking picture box. We aren't sure if she got anything done or just moved from one room to the other.

It looks like you had a lot of fun with Petey. We like the swimming pools at the run.

erin said...

That looks like a lovely walk, Asta. Do people kayak in the Hudson? My Unkie Rob lives in NYC and was just here visiting this past weekend. He went kayaking in the Milwaukee River with my girl. He said it was gross but that it doesn't even begin to compare to the Hudson.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Oooooooo! What a walk you guys had! You must be exhausted! Are you gonna sleep for a few days now?

I was thinking today...I wonder why dogs don't get nose boogers...

Stanislaw said...

What an exciting day! I was on lock down. Boo...

I'm SO JEALOUS of that kiddie pool! Aren't they the awesomest?

Sassy Kat said...

What a busy day you had, I got tired just reading about all of the things that you had done. I really think the pool for the doggies is a neat idea.
What a fun city you live in always so much to do.

Islay said...

Hello Asta - you are having a fine Summer there - do you get to go kayaking too?

Come by my bloggie cause I have an awards for you!


Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

What a beautiful Labor Day you had! The walk along the river looks so nice and refreshing (especially with the water Petey's Mom brought). My Mom thinks that your Mom should try the kayak lesson. She did it here in the Chicago river and loved it! She says big city's look different from the water (and that's just Chicago, so imagine how NYC looks!) Enjoy the rest of this week, I hope you get to your wun a lot!

Your pal,

Stanley said...

Sweet Fuzzaroni AstaButt!

I LOVE any photos of you walking (especially when you're walking away from the camera)!

It's FAB that you and Petey have each other and that your mommi & daddi have Auntie Jane to be crazy with and to make goobers of themselves with out in public. It's so much more fun being a goober if you're doing it WITH someone or somedog else.

Give your Auntie Jane a big goob smooch from me next time you see her, and talk to your mommi about reserving that Asta back in NYC painting for ME!

Goober love & smooches,

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Sounds like a great day. Glad you and Petey got to spend it together.

Hope your Mom sells lots of paintings.

Tell Myrna Hi and good luck with the wedding. ~S, S & C
