Sophie Brador said...

Asta! You look divine in that coat. It really is the ideal thing for a cool Spring day in the village. You are such an icon of fashion and truly were my inspiration when I chose that for you.

It looks excellent on you!!! And I'm so glad mom has dogs to buy coats for so that she doesn't buy them for me. It's bad enough she's taking me for a grooming. Can you imagine?!!

OMD...the cut...the fit...the color...and that amazing flower!!! Asta...you look amazing!!! I am so jelly!! (NOT that I'd walk in it...coats just freeze me in place...weird huh?)

They just leave water out for dogs? OH MY...Mumsie had the bucket out pourin' water on the grass for Stanny's um well and I thought Mumsie had brought that big heavy water bucket out for me. Harumph.

There's going to be a walk here for hoomans to carry a bucket of water for 2 miles...it's to show how lucky we are that we don't hafta do that like some women in the world...bet those dogs don't get very much fresh water, huh...
I never really think of those things very often, but I should. We are lucky, aren't we Asta?

Warm beds, full tummies, hoomans who love and wespect us....Lacie looks up to the stars with graditude...that's my wish tonight Asta...that others are as lucky as we are...Kay?

I'm going to my crate now and read a good murder mystery...my favorite time of day...look at the pinups of my boyfriends...what more could a dog want??

Love you girlie...Lacie

Koobuss said...

Kousin Asta,

Your new coat is bootiful. Very smart. As I've told you before, red is definitely your color. I like the flower on the back, too. The orange matches your leash and collar perfectly. Yes, Kousin Asta, very smart. That is how the well-dressed New York City doggie should look!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Hi Asta, Thank you for all the advice. You were recommended by many doggies as a super styling doggie. I LOVE that coat it looks great on you too. I am going to take your advice and go more natural (I really don't like make up anyway) I am bit of a tomboy. I look forward to reading your blog it looks like a lot of fun.
Love,
