The Aftewmath

I told Scwuffy, BabyStan and Lacie, that we'd bettew clean the house fwom top to bottom aftew all ouw fwiends left...Mumsie can't find out what went on at hew house while she was gone

they didn't appweciate my suggestions at all..and said some vewy dewogatowy things about me

I'm suwe you'll agwee , when you see how owdewly evewything is on theiw bloggie, that it was the wight thing to do.

we washed the windows
babyStan was a little twepidatious about the heights

thewe wewe towews of diwty dishes to wash, but
it was impossible to keep them to the task at paw..they just wanted to play wif the soap bubbles

Lacie and b.Stan wewe totally mowose about washing floows (you'd think they nevew did chowes befowe)

and Stan made a hooge deal out of taking out a little gawbage

we had wemoved all the fuwnitoowe and had it cleaned, and painted the walls and did a last minute vacooming...but Scwuffy kept asking how come evewything looks diffewent...well Duhhhhhh..it's all clean..we even got flowews and lit a fiwe to welcome Mumsie back !

I'm suwe she won't suspet a thing..so pleez don't tell hew! Mum's the wowd!

smoochie kisses

It looks like you did a fabulous job tidying up and cleaning, Asta. We promise we won't tell!

The Black and Tans. said...

That certainly must have been some party!

Asta you looked fabulous cleaning those windows, such flair; our window cleaner will never look that good!

It was good everybody helped to clear up and we are sure the hoomans will never know!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Great job!!! SS asks if you can all come and do our house. She doesn't even mind if you all had a party BEFORE the cleaning up.

Sophie Brador said...

Don't tell your mom how good you are at cleaning. she might expect you to help out after her party.


Ruby and Penny said...

You've done a marvelous job. I'm not going to let my mom see this, I told her that us doggies can't clean up their messes. I love your dress & matching shoes.
Love Ruby

Simba and Jazzi said...

You worked so hard! I hope my Mummy doesn't get any ideas.

Unknown said...

I'm with Momo! The next party is at our place if you promise it will look even better afterwards than it did before!

Patience-please said...

Hey! Swede William said that he wasn't home yet because HE was helping with the clean up.... where is that sneaky Swede?????

Gus said...

Asta: Things must've gotten pretty lively after we left. Muzzer says you are welcome to come for her pawties. Except, we always have to clean before the pawty...doesn't make much sense to me.


Daisy said...

Your secret is safe with me! I'll bet everything is even cleaner than it was BEFORE the party!

Dexter said...

Uh oh, Momma saw the photos of you cleaning up. I hope she doesn't tell. I don't think she will since she was laughing too hard to type.


Deefor said...

You worked really hard. That party must have been wild, My lips (do I have lips?) are sealed. I never get in trouble cause I blame everything on my little brother Arrow. Even shredding papers and chewing on magazines.


Petra said...

Mum is the word for Mumsie! So how long was your nap after you guys did all of that hard work?

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

Wow Asta! You pulled it off!! The place sure looks great. Looks like you had a hard time convincing those holy terrers to pitch in.
Our lips are sealed! If necesary, I'll superglue Scooter's!! He hasn't said too much since he's been home. Sleeping alot.....occasionally he mumbles deel em boys in his sleep!
Thanks for all you did. You saved everyone's bacon!!

Princess Patches said...

Our mom is laughing too hard to type what we're barking! It's a good thing you cracked the whip, Asta! Now, Mumsie will never suspect a thing!

Shaggy and Scout said...

The cleaning up part is the hardest!
But by the looks of the trash, you all ate pretty well!

Molly the Airedale said...

Wow! We guess cracking the whip was the answer! The house looks sparkling clean and Mumsie will be so happy! You did good, Asta!

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Hey Asta,

Looks like you guys did a great job! Maybe you should go into business cleaning houses!

With wagging tail,

Moco said...

Such as task master. You did an excellent job. Painting the walls might give the whole scheme away though. Oh, well who couldn't like coming home to newly painted walls.

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

Asta, Asta...OH MY OH MY....she came home a day sooner than we expected...SHE GOT HOME TONIGHT!!!!! I KNOW we all moaned and complained...(though those little red sneakers YOU MADE ME WEAR to clean in were atrocious...and my paws are all wrinkled and my nails are ruined and I even think Stanley sucked up part of my tail in the vacuum cleaner) but YOU SAVED OUR BUTTS!

She ran around here and kept saying things like...oh DOGS, how nicely you kept everything...


UM...nobody emptied the litter box. Yep. And it was very very full...Evidently, Opus musta drunk a lotta beer....we told Mumsie that it got very very cold here and it was just easier to use the box, but I have NO IDEA if she believed us or not. She was exhausted and went to bed.

Thank you EVER SO MUCH for helpin' us get the house back in order...you're the bestest of friends, Asta...we love ya Girl!

Hugs and kissies...

Deb Cushman said...

Great cleaning job! Hope the garbage truck came and took away that mountain of trash! Your mom might suspect something if she sees that pile of bottles!

Fred said...

Oh my! I've only made messes--never cleaned up one! heehee

Mack said...

Just watching everybody work so hard is making me tired!!

Sassy Kat said...

Opus "Wanted to thank all for the fun party and poker. It was a blast and I don't have to worry about $$$$$ for quiet awhile now. Hope things didn't get too trashed."

Sassy "Opus is staying at my place over the weekend if you need to get ahold of him. His folks just left him for the whole weekend so we thought why not get together. You all sure pitched in and cleaned up things. Looks good and I bet your mom and dad didn't even have a clue."

The Cat Realm said...

WOW - what a party - and we totally missed out on it! Can you all come over and clean our house too, please! It needs it....I don't even know why we call that thing here "the maid" - she sure does not behave like one!
We gave you an award - you probably have it already - but not from US. And WE wanted to give it to YOU!

Oh my, it seem to me that you have had with your friends really wild party!!! Did you think how big is your ecological footstep?? You seem to have a lot of garbage there.We made a test in internet what is our ecological footstep per year, it was actually very interesting test! We try to save our world....
Well hope you had nice party there!
kerrykisses to you!


MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Dearest Asta! Did you notice I cleaned up the powder room before I left your house? I hope you did not get into any trouble after your mommy got home.
Asta I want you to do me a favor...a dear friend of mine wrote me a letter after I told her about you and I want your mommy to read it...here it is:
Oh my goodness! Don't you just have the most wonderful friends! You are so right that your message has put me into a very good mood all of a sudden.
What a looker Asta is, too. This reminds me, I almost named Piccola "Asti" (as in Asti Spumante). I wanted an Italian name and I liked the idea of honoring the famous Asta. I was trying to decide between Piccola and Asti, and M. actually made the final pick. He wanted Piccola after reading that the Italian Ferrari Grand Prix driver (I forget his name at the moment) named his baby son "Piccolo.")
The Big Apple! Wow. And I have a little story about that too. One day, probably 12 years ago now, I was walking in Central Park with a friend. Far off, I saw a group of WFT's walking with their people. I had been away for almost a week and missed my baby terribly so even though I am not much of a walker, I immediately began dragging my friend off in that direction saying I had to meet those dogs. We did catch up with them and I explained I how seeing the dogs made me miss mine. The women were very friendly, said they walked their dogs regularly in CP, that Joanne Woodward was in the group, and they said I and my dog would be welcome to join them! Right then and there I knew I had to move to NYC, but of course M. squelshed that plan. You must ask Asta's mom if she walks him in Central Park.

So Asta was your mommy in that group by chance? Maybe someday I will be able to come and visit you in the Big Apple...we used to live in the Little Apple...do you know where that is?
All my love, your friend always, Miss Peach

You guys really know how to party, but you are all very responsible to clean it all up. Mumsie won't suspect a thing (hopefully). He he!!!
