Woo look like a snowdog!

I saw Petey's blog earlier...he's a sleepy pup from his big day!

We followed Tanner's direkhtion tonight...Mom poured herself a nice something to lift fur Klaus!

We've also been to Sunny and Skhooter's blog...we are sending lots of SibeVibes fur their gramma...


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

That is a great idea, Asta...we will celebrate the good things in life in honor of Bogart's Dad.

You and Petey look like you had the time of your lives playing in the snow! And your photos are so cute, as always...*grins* Hope you have a great week!

Hi Asta,

you look like you and Petey had such a great time! We loved the videos.. what is it with those snow balls?? one minute there is a lovely ball flying through the air then *poof* it just disappears like magic!
I'm glad you finally got some snow, I had such a great time in ours, me and the beans went nuts!

You are so wise Asta, yesterday was such a sad day but in order to help Lulu and Bogart we do need to focus on love and appreciation of one another now.

We are also focusing on sending lots of love and zen to Jamie and her Momma

love ya lots,

Ben xxxxx

Asta, We think that was a brilliant thing to do taking your Mummy out to cheer her up. You looked very snazzy in your snow suit.

We have been looking at Bogart's blog, we scrolled right back to see all the things Klaus did with Lulu and Bogart.

It will be a lovely memory for them both.

Martha said...

Hi Asta

oh Asta, your post just hit the right note there. You are so right in what you bark.

We must celebrate life. I loved your videos, but what made my Jeannie smile broadly was your red outfit!

Why? Well she has a fleecy kinda nightdress which she wears around the house over her jammies before she gets dressed, and it is in the exact same fabric!!!!!

I will see if she can photo it and put it on my blog soon.

thank you for cheering us up today.

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxx

Jeannie who is dressed like Asta!

xxxxx (well if you have style, you just born with it I always say!)

Princess Patches said...

You are so right, Asta! We need to celebrate life! You look toasty warm in your snowsuit, despite all the snow. We hope that Lulu and Bogart will remember the good times, very soon, without all the saddness!

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

No one can celebrate life like you can...

Thanks for the smiles...

You are very sweet, Asta. And we loved the snow day pics, and that beautiful coat you were wearing!

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

You and Petey are the cutest snow bunnies I've ever seen! You look so adorable in your snowsuit with your fuzzy muppet feet, and Petey with his fuzzy snow-magnet face! You're right about your mommi, she went totally CRAZY with the photos, but I looked at everyone of them just so I could pretend to be there with you!

Some of my fave photos were when you were running along with the kids on the sled! Were they just howling with laughter or were they cheering you on?! How fun to get to go out and play with Auntie Jane, Mommi & Daddi, Petey and all those hooman pups and their parents. You put a HUGE smile on my face, and especially on my girl's face.

We here will remember to pray for Sunny & Scooter's grandma, and for Bogie & Lulu (who are never out of our thoughts). And of course, we'll remember to celebrate LIFE! You're a great example of that, sweetpea!

With all my goober love & smooches,

Stanley said...

Pee S

I'm so glad you finally got your snowday! You've been wishing for that for a looooooong long time!

Goober love,

Unknown said...

Ahhh, there's nothing like first-day snow! And those little human pups were so cute and so much fun to play with. It's hard to feel sad when there are kids and dogs and snow around.

I guess life is like the snow - we have to get out there and enjoy it and savor every single minute we have.

Maybe we can play again if it doesn't get too slushy.

Your pal,


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...


Sweet Asta....you remind us all to CELEBRATE LIFE!!

Love, Auntie Deb

Gus said...

O my...what a cute hooman pup you found in the snow. I hope you and Petey get to play at least on more day in the snow before spring hits.


Scratchy Paw said...

I just love snow. Looks like you had a waggy time. Thanks for the great advice.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Asta, woo look so elegant in your pretty red coat and what fun woo had with your furiend and your new little biped friend. Mom's voice was not at all screechy - sounded a lot like she loves seeing woo have fun.

Play bows, the OP Pack

Toffee said...

It looks like you did a wonderful job of celebrating life on your snow day!!!

Thanks for the smiles!

Lucia said...

Asta, mia cara amica!

Si, si -- you and your mommi are sooooo right about celebrating life. And what a buono lavoro you did celebrating in your bellissima ski bunny suit in all of that lovely snow! Mia ragazza and I couldn't stop smiling as we looked at your photos and watched the videos. Perfetto! Mwahhh!

Tanti baci!

The Oceanside Animals said...

It is a sad time in the dogosphere. :-(

Unknown said...

Hee, hee! Mommy's still laughing at the photo where it looks like she's going to pound that cute little girl with my icy tennis ball. (Perhaps there is a reason why she has me and Mica instead of kids!)

And those photos of you with the kids in the sled should be in the dictionary under the definition of "BLISS."

Your pal,


Petra said...

You really got lots of snow, Asta! I'm glad it came to your house instead of mine, because you like it much better than I do.

I'm ready for spring!

Daisy said...

Asta, seeing you run around and have fun in your little snowsuit is enough to lift anyone's heart!

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I think this is very wise advise, to celebrate life. I casnot watch the videos, they not be playing for me today. But all the smile box photos be wonderful!

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, you are a very wise pupster and we agree with what you say. we dogs don't understand life and death, but we know when our peoples are sad. what we know the best is life and living in the moment and you are showing us that really well.

lucky you to get that beautiful snow! you and Petey were having a blast chasing snowballs and romping in it. you look adorable in your snow suit. is that a Snitchybug creation?


Eric said...

Asta! Perfectly put, I'm wagging you and Petey got the chance to celebrate and embrace life in the snow.

Wow what a WICKED time you all had. Mom was as excited as me to watch you two playing..and we watched each and every one. The kids on the sled with you jumping alongside...tooooo cute for words.Soooper one's of my bf buddy too, looking mighty handsome. FAB photos, paws up to Mommi, she excelled herself, but then she had you to photograph!! Do I expect to see some some masterpieces inspired by them later on this year? Hope so.

Love ad kissies. Eric xxxx

Booty-full pictures! I like what you said, too, about celebrating life. I think I'll give my Old Girl an extra hug tonight.

Asta, what a great snowday you had! We LOVE the photos!!
Personally we (Ruis & Karl) don't like snow -- too cold. But my (Ruis's) doggy sister and brother Taylor and Buzzer are going wild in the snow, too! :-)

Headbutts and (((hugs))) from us,
~ Ruis & Karl

ps -- Marlene LOOOOVES your sweater!!

Rudy said...

We love your snowsuit! We need something like that for little Ollie since he's still a baby dog. He loves to play in the snow but his little T-shirt just doesn't do it for him!


Moco said...

We could see that you were having the time of your life out in the snow in that fashionable outfit. Playing with Petey and your new friend. We will continue to send out healing vibes. You can never have too many healing vibes floating around.

Huskee and Hershey said...

As always you know the right things to say. It is important to celebrate the joy and happiness brought to our lives even if it was time limited.

Thanks for sharing your joy with us.

Joe Stains said...

I sure hope your fwozen fuzzbutt defwosted. I sure did love all those pics and I definitely love your snow suit too! You are so lucky to have got your snow and to be able to share it with Petey and your new human friends!

Hi, Asta -

We liked the pictures of you playing in the snow and your snowsuit too. We got a lot of snow too. I (Hershey) had a lot of fun dragging a stick around.
