Hello Sweet Fwiendz!

I apologize once again fow my tewwible wesponce wate ..I have gone and wead all youw bloggies, but didn't have time to wite answews.
Mommi has house guest fow the last week, and thewe doesn't seem to be time fow anything..I love you all and you'we in my heawt and thoughts always!

I went wif Mommi and ouw guest to look at the Chwissmuss atmosphewe in NYC ..this is Fifth Ave.
then we went to look at Wadio City Music Hall, and look at the suwpwise I have fow you!!!!!!!!!! heheheheheheheheheh

yes..as a suwpwise, all the squawe doggies who wewe able to be hewe have been pwacticing
even the boyz wewe allowed to be Wockettes, heheheheheheh
l-wight: Eric,Butchy, Archie,Gussie, Scruffy,Just Harry, Jake,Dewey Dewster, and Lenny
Unfowtoonately, All ouw othew squawe fwiendses had othew engagements and couldn't commit to all the weheawsals and the pawfowmance
hewe awe some of the giwl....left to wight:
Stella, Asta,Luna,Koobuss,Agatha, Lacie, and Snickers

aftew the pawfowmance we walked awound to see mowe sights
I like the big doggies wif policehoomans sitting on them
on ouw way, we stopped into StPatwick's Cathedwal to light candles and say a pwayew fow ouw sick fwiends, and to ask that all fuwwkids find wawm and loving homes vewy soon, and that ouw fwiends ovew the wainbow know that we love them and they awe in ouw heawts fowevew!

thewe was angelic singing and bootiful moosic

of couwse we oogled the blingie stuff in Cawtiew's windows

we wewe pwetty tiwed by then, and since we wewe in fwont of the Plaza Hotel, we admiwed the lights in the fountain, and decided to go in and west ouw paws

thewe is a champagne baw off the lobby, and Lacie and I met Archie and my Stanley thewe fow a wefweshing dwink (notice that they had a giant Bukket of the flowews named aftew my Mommi)

by now it was quiet and dawk outside, and pawfect fow looking at the windows at Bawkdog Goodman(they have the most wondewfully cweative and magical windows)

it's a wintew wondewland
thewe awe magical cweatoowes along wif the clotheses
some little fuwwkids awe painting
Mommi was vewy impwessed by theiw awtisitc abilities
This biwd was supew elegant in hew white coat

we slipped inside the stowe to wawm up fow a minute..............................and what do we see????
Mango buying pawfoome...hmmmmm(I wondew who the lucky giwl is? ow is it just to covew his occasional ummmmm, gaseous you know....?)
we didn't want to embawwas him so we went on ouw way
and looked at some mowe windows
at the cownew of 57th St and Fifth Ave. , thewe is a bootiful cwistal staw..

I hope you got into the Chwissmuss spiwit wif me ....of couwse all of this would be much bettew wif snow..
today, we got a smattewing, but none stuck...I'm still waiting!(maybe Faya could send me some)

and now a wemindew!!!!!

Pleez don't fowget to go seeMomomo Capew Pawt III..

hi Asta, NY City is very beautiful this time of the year. thank you for showing it to us. we haven't looked at any pretty christmas scenes, just our boring back yard. you and your square friends make great rockettes. we would love to do that too. we think our long curly furry legs would look pawsome in that lineup.


Dexter said...

Thank you so much for your card. You look so pretty.

And your picture of New York were just lovely.

Oops, I didn't think anybody would recognize me in my black coat. Let's just keep that little shopping trip to ourselves, hmmmm?


Gus said...

Aw Asta! Thank you for the wonderful pictures of New Yawk. I am so glad I could come dance with the guys, and you ladies all looked lovely.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
With all those activities, we can understand you don't have time to be blogging!
Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures!
Kisses and hugs

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Gorgeous photos as always, Asta! I sure got into the Christmas mode after looking at your photos...=) It's magical! I love the ones of the windows at Barkdog Goodman too...it sure looked like they put a lot of effort into it!

I am reading the Momomo Caper too, and I can't wait for the last part!


Huskee and Hershey said...

NYC is so pretty!! The pictures are beautiful... Mom likes NY a lot (she shopped soooo much when she was there 4 years ago!)

Koobuss said...

Hi Kousin Asta,

Boy, that Rockette dancing can sure make you sore. My legs hurt for two days. Maybe it's the weather.

Loved your photos of New York. The city is so beautiful at Christmas. I wish I could come to see it up close. You are so lucky to be right there in the middle of all that beauty.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Sophie Brador said...

Asta, Your bloggie sure looks pretty, and so does your city. Mom loves NY in December. She was supposed to go for her birthday, but has so much work to do, she decided to just stay home. She sends big smoochies for you and I do too.


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

I'm with Koobie...I can hardly move, Asta...those kicks are so much harder than furdryer jumpin...it's amazin' that the boyz could stretch that much!!!!

Wasn't it sweet meetin' Arch and Stan for a drinkie in the Plaza???? It was so festive...I love that carriage wide we had in Central Park in the buggy pulled by the big dogs...

So who was Mango buyin' that perfume for???? Hmm...

I'm sleepy...need to go and hit the crate!!


Love and kissies...Laciegirl

Stanley said...

Hey Sweet Astaroni!

I LOVED meeting you at the Plaza next to the giant urn of mommi flowers. (They were almost as bootiful as your mommi... almost.)

You were rowrrr roWRRR rOWRRr ROWRRW Gorgeous in your Rockette costume! Stella hasn't stopped talking about "dancing with the big girls" and about all the fun you guys had backstage! (Thanks for including her. You know how much she looks up to all of you ~ especially you.)

We are definitely in the Christmas spirit after that tour. Who wouldn't be?

Please give your mommi's friend a taste of juicy goober smooches from me. I'm almost tempted to mail her nogood stinkin' ex a big steaming pile of poo. (Maybe Stella can take care of that for us.)

Goober love & smooches,

Molly the Airedale said...

NYC is just fabulous at Christmastime, Asta! Thank you so much for the tour! We're still waiting for snow to fall at our house too!
We love your blog header! It's so festive!

Love ya lots

PerfectTosca said...

I'm not impressed with Radio City because they don't let dogs in there.

Woot we got a boatload of snow here Asta! I love snow. Snow Is Me! I love playing with The WOman in the snow especially because I knock her on her butt. She makes this really cool THUMP sound!

The WriggleButts said...

Oh that's lovely!

Cassidy said...

We loved seeing all the photos of Christmassy NY!

Hi, Asta -

The Christmas pictures are pretty. Mama liked all of you as Rockettes. We have a little snow on the ground but it probably won't last.

Love -

Beautiful photos of a beautiful city. What an exciting place to live.
I am so sorry that I have been busy at the studios as it looks like I missed out on Christmas time in NYC with my sissie.
Maybe next year?

Daisy said...

That store window is magical! I think NYC must be the very best place to be for the holiday season.

BrandytheGreat said...

Jans Funny Farm said...

Beautiful picture tour, Asta.

We just came from Sassy's where we watched the conclusion. Very, very good!

Tama-Chan, Benny, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

A wonderful "Woofortage", as always, Asta! New York City looks stunning!

Sophie Brador said...

Asta! I am appalled! You are not in my friends or foes list? To be honest, I never use it anymore, because everyone is now on my bloglines list, but still. You were one of my original bloggie pals. You should be there. I am getting my horribly abusive mom to fix it. You know, you lost my tennis ball in the snow. Bad mom.


William Tell said...

Your city is very beautiful with the Christmas lights all around!

Happy Tails,

Joe Stains said...

Living in NYC during Christmas must be the best thing in the world, it looks so fun!! I can't believe the furry Rockettes danced and I didn't get to see!

Mango has to go to another state to buy perfume, he must be embarrassed!

Hey Asta!

I hope we can go see the store windows this weekend too...that is, if we don't get snowed in!

Hey, how did that sneaky Lacie get into the All-Square Dog Kickline???

Your pal,
