Wow!!! That looks like so much fun!! New York is so great. There is always something going on.

Sorry, but I don't recognize anybody in the group picture, except for Joe Stains and Tanner. Everybody else tends to look alike. Maybe I need glasses. Hehe...


Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Ooooo! A parade of terriers! Im totally disappointed that I missed that one!

That would have been like the best float ever to be on! Could you imagine all of the bitey face that could be played???

Slurp!
Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni FuzzButt!

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the Ox now (does that mean more bully sticks for all of us?)! Wish I could have been there for the parade. I see that Lacie, Teka & Gus were there. Beyond that, it's hard for me to tell who else was on the float.

You and Petey are totally bi-cultural, and you look so natural in your dress and him in his little scholar's outfit. Bet you fit right into China town. I hope the dim sum was good. My girl says it's definitely a fave of hers!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

Red is such a becoming color on any terrier.
I have attempted to play bitey face with Dawson, but he seems to like that paw much better.

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

ASTA...where are the terriers??? I fell asleep on the sofa yesterday when I got home from work and they are gone...just gone, baby, gone...

I've tried Lacie's cell a million times and it just goes to voice mail...and I see she changed her message to "Hi...it's Lacie...tra la la la...nuff said!" Trust me I said enuff after that...

Those dogs have chores to do...toys to pick up, bones to find...

The parade pix were fabulous, BTW...I had NO IDEA the terrier was so featured in Chinese culture!!!

Figures Lacie was on the dragon float...I do see the resemblance...she sorta breathes fire at times....

Love and kisses to ya sweet girl!!!

Sugars to all my Chinese and Aussie friends out there!!

PS: Ruby and I are doing great. I can't quite figure out what to give her for Valentine's though.....

Fred said...

Wow--very multi-cultural! Bon annee, I says!

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

Asta...look isn't this great...Mumsie can't even tell the difference between Scruffy and me...she thought that was me in the dragon pic...hahahahahahaa...

RING RING RING

(Lacie's cell vibrates madly...)

Oh Drat..it's her again...I am so NOT going to pick up...you'd think she thinks I'm a child the way she keeps callin' like every 10 minutes....

(Lacie hits the IGNORE button for the 5435th time today...)

So...hmm...what should we do for dinner?? Does Petey like Chinese?? We could order takeout or go to some totally cool restaurant???

"Scruffy, let go of Petey's ball and don't snap at him like that...sheesh..."

Asta...don't you think ur mommi should be wakin' up by now..I mean she drank those Chinese smoothies hours ago?? What? Tra la la la??

Um Asta..isn't that my line? Oh lookie...Myrna has a lighter...she smokes??? (Lacie sneezes...) Put that out, Myrna...ur gonna catch ur beardie on fire...

Ya wanna cook in? Veal shanks??? That seems politically incorrect...order em from the 'spensive shop down the street? Kay...works for me...

(the conversation goes on, but the typist is becomin' fatigued....)

Momo and Pinot said...
