Adventoowes in babysitting on Daddi's Birfday

Pleez excoose me my sweet fwiends fow once again being supew behind in visiting all of you
I have a pwetty good excoose!!!

DUFFY..he sowt of takes up a lot of time, hehehehe..

as you know..Fwiday was Daddi's Birfday..and he was home all day!!!!! HUWWWAHHHHH!
so since it was such a bootiful day, we all went fow a walk by the Hudson Wivew..
he's a funny kid..follows me and walks weally well if I'm awound..but sometimes he comes to a scweeching halt, and then you just have to wait..he looks awound, and then gets going again

well, awe you coming ow what???

see what I mean?..he's stubbown

I had to wudely cut acwoss to go say hi to anothew doggie fwiend, but this walk is about me too

hewe I am showing him how you'we supposed to stand

all of a sudden he decides he wants to be pack leadew, heheheheheheh as if!!!!!

No that's NOT what you'we supposed to do..sheeesh

when he wants to west, he sits on Mommi's cwocks..I guess he pwefews the softness to the cement
of couwse he had to stick his nose into evewything

and then got a tweat even though he didn't go peepee in an houw and a half walk

Hoomans awe suckews fow a baby

OK, time to go home

and when we got home he collapsed on MY pillow with MY kangawoo..but you know what? I didn't mind..he's just so cute..(notice , he aweady has a polka dotted tummy)..my 1/2 Bwuddew

Soon aftew that, auntie Kawen picked him up and he went home...and I went to a paintball pawty wif my Cat fwiends and sissies..I'll tell you about that tomowwow maybe, if I can get Mommi to help me

as fow my pawents..they walked ovew to one of theiw favowite little westauwnts on one of theiw favowite little stweets in the West Village fow  a womantic dinnew......you have to stand in line, and bwing youw own wine, and it's faiwly inexpensive, but the food is delicious!!! They ate outside and watched the wowld go by, and smiled a lot. I snept........  Good Night.

I would like to wish your Daddi a Happy Belated Birfday.

Your half Brudder is definitely taking you as his role model. He is just as good looking as you but of course you are always better looking than him.. hee..

I love the painting your mum did for your twin brudder. Jie jie hope she can paint as well as your mum one day.

Hey Asta
You're right, Duffy is sooo cute. We like how he puts the breaks on when walking hee hee.

Our pinkies love BYO restaurants. That one your pinkies went to sounds great.

Hi Asta! That Duffy is quite the little guy! I guess he's exploring the world and needs to stop in wonder from time to time. I was impressed at how good he is at walking on the leash already! You're such a good example!

Your Pal,

PS: We are expecting the arrival of or little sister Monday evening, so stay tuned!

Molly the Airedale said...

How funny that Duffy just decides he can't go on another step for the moment! And we love that he sits on your mommi's crock for breaktime! He's one smart little Terrier!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Lacy said...

Hi, Asta -

Your half brudder is really cute! I (Hershey) also liked to stop just like Duffy does. Must be a terrier thing.

We have to give you credit for being a good teacher. Did you get your teaching skills from your Daddi?

Have a good rest of the weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Amber-Mae said...

Happy Belated Burpday to your Daddi! And is that your new wee brudder? He's sooo adorable & looks just like you except mini. Hee! He must be such an annoying little bugger like all other puppies are. But weren't we annoying too when we were small? Well, I guess so. Hope you two are getting along very well!

Butt wiggles,

Unknown said...

Hee hee! When I was a pup, I'd not only stop dead in my tracks, but I'd lie down on my side like someone just shot me. (I've always been dramatic!)

Duffy is doing just great on the leash. And he's very smart to use Mommi's shoes as a bench when he's ready for a rest!

My Mommy got nervous when she saw you on the grass in the Grass Museum (aka Hudson River Park!) because Scout's Mommy got a $250 ticket when Scout wandered up on the lawn as a puppy. They're mean!

Your pal,


Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Duffy is a cutie pie and with you to teach him he will be well behaved in no time.

The romantic evening your parents enjoyed sounds nice. ~S,S & C

Daisy said...

It is so cute to see you and little Duffy going on walkies together. You are a very good role model for him!

Sassy Kat said...

What a little sweetie little Duffy is. It is so nice that you take the time to walk with him and even let him take the lead. I know you are a great sissie to him and will see that he learns all that there is to know about NYC.

Chef said...

Hi Asta.

Happy belated birthday to your daddy.

Oh, that Duffy is just a cutepie! I love how he stops to rest on your mommy's Croc- clever! You both must really turn heads during your walks.

Have a great week.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I know Duffy admires you and he want to be like you!
Kisses and hugs

Ruby Bleu said...

He keeps up pretty well for a little guy!!! Looked like that was a fun day and he's super cute. You are a great teacher Asta...just like your Daddi!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Tesla and Hansel said...

dat so nice of yoo ta share yoor toys wif him. Yoo iz nice woofie :)

The Black and Tans. said...

Aaaaaw Asta little Duffy is doing so well. You certainly will be able to show him how to be a good boy as you take him out for his walkies.

Stanley said...

Sweetaroni Asta Girl!

You are a FABULOUS nanny. I hope your mommi & daddi are taking notes so they can fill in for you if you're ever gone. That Duffy is smart to follow in your footsteps. I noticed how he stuck his booty out at the end of one of the videos when he was coming to a screeching halt. What's his game?

I think Auntie Kawen is going to have a hard time dealing with Duffy's KFWS (Kroon Family Withdrawal Syndrome), not to mention the big bouts of AWS (Asta Withdrawal Syndrome) that he must be suffering whenever he has to leave your house.

At least you two look good walking together. I bet everyone just stops and goes "Awwwwww!"

I still think you're cuter than Duffy, but he does have a certain charm about him, doesn't he?

Goober love & smooches,

Mack said...

With a great teacher like you, Duffy will become an A-1 walker in no time!

Looks like your dad had the perfect birfday!

Dexter said...

Asta! I think the little guy really admires you. He looks so cute all following you around.


Princess Patches said...

Duffy is such a cutie! He will learn a lot from you, Asta! Please tell your Daddi that we said Happy Birthday! Our dad's birthday was yesterday...one day after your daddi's! Our mom's maiden name was Duff so she will never have a hard time remembering Duffy's name. Everyone calls her father Duffy too!

The WriggleButts said...

He is soooo cute! Mom say I used to sit on her foot when I was a puppy too.. Well.. It might still happen once in a while..


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


Tell Auntie Kawren I need a hooge supply of diapers for the Halloween pawty...um...hour and a half walks DO NOT FIT INTO MY SOCIALIZING...Plus I have Dyos too...who was cheeky enuff to say he doesn't need diapers....

Darn Asta...he is so cute. There is NO pup cuter than a baby wire foxy...I bet you get stopped a jillion times to ADMIRE THE BABY.

Harumph...that would irritate me...frankly I love bein' the center of attention...

Gotta go read bout ur Daddi's barkday!


Pee Ess...did you get the pic I sent ya off the Banquet Hall Stuffie Roast? Opinions?

Stanislaw said...

I like any dog that uses humans as a bench. Smart pup 1/2 bro you've got there!

Eduardo said...

Ferndoggle said...

Looks like you're doing an excellent job of showing Duffy the ropes. He'll be as perfect as you in no time.


Joe Stains said...

It looks to me like he is just testing out his brakes, which are very important! I can't believe he didn't pee even one time!!! I am glad your Mommi and Daddi had a nice dinner, it sounds wonderful.

Agatha and Archie said...

Well he is one cute little sucker!! There really is nothing cuter than a wft puupy if we must say so ourselves....but uh we think you need to have a little one to one with him...NO PEEPEE in 1 1/2 hours?????? You better tell him about the winter that is soming up....in and out in less than a nano second(or better yet just do it in the house..who needs to go out> Maybe he has the right idea...) Love A+A

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, you and Duffy had a great walk together. you look so cute when the two of you are walking side by side. he's a real cutie pie - just like you were when you were a little baby too. of course, you retained your cuteness and are still adorable.


Lindsay said...

Happy bee-late birfday to Asta's daddi!

Asta, you are a very good big half sister to Duffy. He is lucky to have you!

Also thanks for your crossed paws for The Roomie's brother and family. Isn't it amazing how comforting it can be just to know there's someone out there giving a good thought.

Brown dog kisses,
Dannan and The Girl

Pee Ess The Girl is screeching, "Fuzzy puppy!!! Puppy belly!!!" aren't humans weird?!

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

Duffy is adorable...It's sooo funny how he just stops...

He looks just like you...

I know you will teach him all kinds of things...It was sooo nice of you to share your pillow & kangaroo...

Abby xxxooo

Beckett said...

Hi Asta,

You are doing a great job teaching Duffy the important things.

Here's my lesson for Duffy - Crocs are fun to chew on. Don't tell Mommi I told you that!


George the Pup said...

You did a really fine job with Duffy Asta - you're so patient with him. But I think you may have to lay down the paw about that pillow thing! I'm really glad you're having so much fun with him!

Deefor said...

AAAAwwww. He's so cute. Looks so cute following you. You can teach him all about life.


Dewey Dewster said...

Peanut said...

He is so so cute. Can't wait to hear about your good times

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Awww...he looks SOOOOO adorable and cute during the walk! Especially when he stops for a while and trying to resist...*grins*


Thor and Jack said...

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Duffy is such a cutie. You're really nice to baby sit him and bring him out for walkies

Deb Cushman said...

What an adorable little guy! He looks so cute following behind you, and you are so patient with him! What a great half sister you are!

The Furry Kids said...

Oh, Asta! You have a lot of stuff to teach the little guy! But he's lucky to have such a cool teacher. :)

Petra said...

Happy Birthday to your dad, Asta!

Duffy is such a cutie, but I can't believe he didn't got potty after a 1 1/2 hour walk! Sitting on your mom's crocks was a very smart thing for him to do, too!

Lady Kaos said...

He is very cute. it sure is nice of you to teach him so many things.

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Your little half brudder is sooo cute. He does look so much like you! Mom says he is doing so well on the lead. Good thing he has you to teach him!! Ahhh-puppis-sooo cute, hu?
Souds like your Mommy&Daddy had a very nice birthday dinner. Very romantic.
Oh, come by and pick up your flutterby"(butterfly) award, ok?
Hugs & Hi 5s

Eric said...

OOOH what a terrierific picture you two make. Bet you get tons of compliments.

But Ha,haHAAA!!!! Wagging with laughter and clapping my paws together!! Duffy and the stubborn thing, I sometimes still do that too!!! Specially if I don't like the walk we are going on or if we don't cross the road in the place I want too...way to go Duffy boy!! Must be a boy thing, not like you good girls! You are the pawfect role model Asta so lucky he's not with me except for um...maybe the peeeee mail thing.

Wiry wags, Eric x x x x xx x x xx

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

It's a tough job helping to raise a puppy. You guys are doing great with Duffy! I'm so happy that you are passing your walking wisdom on to him, he'll be a mini Asta pretty soon!

Your pal,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Asta cutie,
Mom can't stop screeching about how adorable Duffy is. I think I am going deaf... I have to admit he is quite a charmer and his belly spots are so cute too!! I guess he does take after you!

Simba and Jazzi said...

Baby sitting sounds like hard work!I hope your Mum and Dad enjoyed their night out.

Boo Casanova said...

wash out for duffy's shark teefie yer asta. i'm sure he was poop when he reached home after that long walk. when i was a pup like duffy, i slept the whole day after a long walkie. lol

wet wet licks


BrandytheGreat said...

Hey,we're backk!
Wish your Dad a Happy Belated from us, wont ya?
And OMdOG, he looks just like you!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

J1 was practically crying at those videos cos you look so cute together. Does having him around mean you get more treats? If that's the case maybe having a pal over during the day wouldn't be too bad. J x

duo_disaster said...

Hey! Duffy's so adorable!

Yeah... Hoomans does have something over babies which we cant figure it out too but we think sometimes they're really a pain in the ****

Maybe he thought something was gonna fall down and hit him from the skies thats why he halted so suddenly or... maybe he needs to catch his breath a little?

Anyway we're sure he takes after you! Its so sweet to see both of you going out together.

Rudolf & Goofy

Toffee said...

You are right humans are such suckers for babies...my mom was "oooh-ing" and "ahh-ing" the entire time! That Duffy sure is a cute little fluff ball But you are MOST bootiful!!

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...


You are doing a fine job teaching Duffy all the finer points of being a pawfect terrier. He has the walking thing down pat. I used to sit on Mommy and Daddy's shoes. It is much preferable than the cold ground.
