Back home again

I got home fwom England in time to see all the decowations in my neighbowhood

then to my dismay, duffy and I wewe dwessed up as woostews..pawsonally I think I look bettew as a queen)
look at the stoopid smile on Mommi's face..I suppose she's all pwoud of hewself getting me dwessed like this
I talked it ovew wif Duffy, and wea gweed this was hoomiliating

can you believe these stoopid outfits???

then we wewe dwagged outside...I couldn't even look at the camewa

Duffy was mowe accomodating...but he had to go home, cause he's not legal yet fow the wun

well I figoowed it was in a good cause, ...we wewe going to my wun fow a pawty

it was all decowated wif skeletonses
and spidews and withches and wavens
but aftew what I saw in the towew..fwankly I was not even scawed
those wewe cool lighted up skeletons, but I just laughed at them
..but hewe's the scawy pawt....
no one else was thewe

We played wif my pawents fow about 40 minutes, and then I got bowed, and we went home...we nevew got the peemail telling us that it was all going to stawt latew

I'm outa hewe
all in all it was a faboolous Halloween weekend, I saw all my fwiend in England, I got to dance wif all my favowite boys, who wewe sooo handsome one and all..and My Stanny and I got to walk and smooch in the moonlight...sighhhhhhh
Thank you all fow coming to the pawty!

and on the way home we saw this punkin..it cheewed us up!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Real costumes never measure up to the 'other' ones. But you look cute anyway. Thankyou for a fabulous party. We certainly enjoyed our time together.

Unknown said...

Oh Asta, you weren't a rooster, you were a HOT CHICK!

Sorry you missed the party--you need to give Mommi and Daddi a stern lecture about your social life!

Your pal,


P.S. Did you get to see all the pumpkins in Abingdon Square?

Asta, We have a little jet lag, how about you? Sorry no one showed up at your run, you looked cute in your costume-Mom says. We feel your pain! Thanks again for the best time ever and for all your hard photography work!! You're the greatest! And thanks for the talks we had, you taught me lots about boys.

Too bad about the change in start times for the run, but woo did make a pretty cute cock-a-doodle-doo!!

Woos, the OP Pack

Gus said...

Asta! How terrible that your social secretary was remiss in correcting your blackberry for the pawty at the run.

We think you and the rug rat look cute in the chicken costumes, and agree with Petey that you were a "hot Chick"

My sweet little Chickadee, thank you for a wonderful pawty


Beckett said...

Hi Asta,

Maybe next year you can dress up as Duffy and Duffy can dress up as you - and Mommi and Auntie can be chickens!


Koobuss said...

Oh Kousin Asta,

That wooster costume is so unlike you. No wonder you were unhappy. But it is a perfect disguise and you looked great. That little Duffy is such a cutie. When will he be able to join you at the wun?

You neighborhood had some real scary decorations. They were gweat!! Loved them.

Glad you had such a good time this past weekend. Hope that you have a good week, too. Tuesday's going to be really interesting.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

The Cat Realm said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - upss - I am sorry - I didn't mean to laugh - but.... you DO look a bit - how should I put it - not so very favorably in this costume.....
I can bite her for putting you in it??? Or Tintin can scratch her? Or Mrs. OZ can yuk up one of her famous stinky stain-making hairballs in her bed?
The Halloween party was GREAT!!! And we'll stay here in New York for the election! I think Sassy has something planned for Wednesday...

Petra said...

You look beautiful in anything you wear, Asta. At least you didn't have to be a clown! How did you have the energy to do ANYTHING when you got home? I'm so wiped out.

The Devil Dog said...

You did look very cute, Asta. Sorry about the party, though.


Kirby said...

Oh, poor Asta, first they dress you and Duffy up like chickens then you are too early for the party at the run. At least you got your party on in London town! What a great weekend it was. I hope you chewed up that chicken suit after Halloween, may it never be seen again. He he!

Your pal,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Asta,
You and Duffy are the cutest chicken/ chick! I bet you had loads of people wanting to shake paws with you in that cute outfit...

Deefor said...

Hi Asta
You are a cute rooster but I wouldn't want to wear that thing either. I love all your Halloween pictures and adventures.

Thanks for a great party, Asta!

Sorry that you and Duffy were subjected to those costumes. Our people sometimes have very strange ideas about what makes us happy? or is it THEM?

Molly the Airedale said...

The two of you really are very adorable chickens but we can see how you'd be mortified!
That was one fun halloween party! Thank you so much for being the perfect hostess, Asta!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

First you have to dress up as roosters and then you missed the party at the run. That's not fair. But you and Duffy do look cute in your costumes.

Love -

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Wow Asta,

What a wonderful party you all had. Sorry I couldn't nake it but I couldn't miss my date with Snowy. I am so in love!! The whole weekend, almost, alone wirh Snowy.

Love the rooster costumes but the Monmmy said you are a girl not a rooster.


Agatha and Archie said...

MORTIFYING INDEED!!!We should dress them up as roosters....We are kind of laying low today if ya know what I mean..Archie has a cool cloth over his eye muttering something about what was in those smoothies...and I am just going to relax with my paws up........Too bad you missed the run party but it wouldn't have been 1/4 as good as ours!! Love A+A

Chef said...

Asta! I just got home from England and I am totally exhausted from all the partying. I'm going to have to sleep this one off for a couple of days. But what a great party it was and you looked gorgeous! Thanks for organizing it and taking all those amazing pictures of everyone!

Now, hmmm... you and Duffy look a little silly, to be honest, but hey, that's part of the fun! But maybe it's a good thing you missed the party at the run because looking like that, you'd never live it down!!


Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Asta
I think you & Duffy look so cute as chickens. By the enormous smile on you mom's face dressing you up has made her very happy.
I know it's humiliating but our humans love it.

Love Ruby

Jake of Florida said...

Queen, yes!!! Rooster, no!!!

Usually your mommi is more respectful of your inner pawsona -- she must be caught up in the pre-election jitters we all feel!!

Asta, we had such a great time at the pawty -- thank you so much for making sure we got there -- and for dressing us and our wheelies in such elegant costumes!!

We got home just in time for Mom's birthday on the 1st (All Saint's Day, would you believe it???) so everyone was happy!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Paws crossed for tomorrow!

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, you and Duffy look kind of cute in your rooster costumes. hee hee.

we're sorry that you missed your party at the run. that's too bad that you had to be there all by yourself. that's kind of boring.

it sure was a fun party that we had last weekend though. that was great. you are a wonderful hostess.


Amber-Mae said...

Interesting decorations. I like your cluck-cluck costumes! Cute! Oh yeah, me voting for OBAMA!!!!

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

I bet all your pup friends at the run missed you at the pawty! Sorry you didn't get to see them, but I'm sure you were ready for some extra snoozin' time after the pawty in London & the flight!

I think you look cute in anything you wear, but of course, I like you au naturale the best!

Goober love & smooches,

Daisy said...

Asta, I think you and Duffy look very, very adorable in your Rooster Suits!

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

You & Duffy make cute roosters...

My Mom made me be a cow...What's with them & the farm animals this year?

Abby xxxooo

Joe Stains said...

I think you got kind of lucky that nobody else was there, so nobody could see you in the silly costume. PLUS you kind of looked like a big stuffy toy and some dog might try to SPLODE you!

Sassy Kat said...

I think you two look adorable in your chicken Halloween outfits, of course that is because you two are in them and not me. Your mom does look really proud that she got you into those outfits.
Hey what is that about the little one not being legal for the doggie run, he isn't one of those illegal aliens is he, I sure hope not. You don't want the immigrations people to know about that if he is.
See you soon, don't forget to vote!

Looking adorable as ALWAYS!

Moco said...

I really like that rooster costume. You and Duffy looked very cute. It is odd what our hoomans thinking sometimes. It looks like you saw some pawsome decorations. Sorry that your were early for the run. It was probably best that you went home and rested.
