I'm sorry they're waking you up so early in the morning, but I'm pretty excited about the High Line opening this Spring. A nice park with trees and green grass and flowers -- all the pictures I've seen look awfully nice. And from what we've heard, doggies will be allowed up there too.

You'll be able to look outside your window and see trees and flowers! That's nicer than graffiti, right? Hey, and I just read the new Whitney is only going to be six stories, not seven so you won't lose your windows. (And with the economy the way it is, it may be a long time before they get their funding together.)

Cheer up little gal! Sophie's mommy is coming tomorrow!!!

Your pal,

Hey Asta, we're with you. We think a refurbished old building is so much more appealing. Why are some pinkies so silly.
Everyone should listen to you Asta. Keeping spreading the word.


Juno said...

Hello sissy, we missed you terribly!!
We think that desert will cheer us up for a long time. :) It looks yummy!!!

Our pawrents posted some photos from their trip on our blog and guess what? They saw your name while travelling. :)

Some hooomans khan be sooo stooopid!

I've featured Sunny and Skhooter's Gramma today-


Koobuss said...

That's too bad about the construction. Maybe if you get all your doggie friends you could go over there and bark at them. That should scare them off.

Those eatables look wonderful! Your Mommi always makes such gweat looking, and I'm sure great tasting, food. My mom doesn't even come close!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Faya said...

Palacsinta !!!!!!!! Avec la crème acide ????? et les raisins ?????
Ohhhhhh j'arrive ......

Lorenza said...

I hope those yummy eatables made you feel a little better!
Kisses and hugs

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni Lovepup O' Mine!

What is that dessert? Is it homemade cannolis? Whatever it is I'm sure it (and your daddi's attention) made you feel all warm inside! I can't believe Cawina just ignored you!

I hope the park turns out as nice as they say it's going to be. It will be great for you to have another park so close by!

Hoomans sometimes think they know what's best, but they made a mistake tearing down that building. We don't do that here in GooberSTan.

Enjoy the weekend Sweetpea!

Goober love & smooches,

Hi Asta,

I totally agree with you - they should "wefoodbish" the building instead!

Mmm - that desert looks so yummy! You are such a lucky pup to always get these treats! :-)

Hi Asta

Hi, Asta -

Mama, Kaci and I (Hershey) miss one day of visiting some blogs and you wake up to "Jack" at 6:30 a.m.?!? My grandma (who I never met) used to tell Mama NYC is the "city that never sleeps."

Since we live all the way in Connecticut we can "feel your pain."

You do get yummy food from your Daddi - you are such a loved pup!

Have a good weekend - maybe the park will be bee-o-ti-ful but we understand that maybe they should have done something to refurbish the current building.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. This happened on Friday the 13th? Mama is not usually supersticious (sp?) but things were strange here too. Kaci told us that they STILL have two feet of snow in the front yard in NH. Should we send some to Khyra?

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

So sorry for the noise, sweety, I'll send you some earplugs, k?
Or if that OK with your mommy, you can fly here with us, first flight tomorrow, first class, hehe.
Asta, come come to Momo&Pinot, they showed that you have a shop in Tokyo.
Love you lots.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi Sweet Asta! I agree with your parents: they should refurbish the old buildings! You are looking adorable...as usual! What a great picture of your handsome daddy! Those pastries look yummy!!!


Love, Auntie Deb

Joe Stains said...

Sorry they are breaking your neighborhood :( I sure hope that is the last big building coming. What are those tasty things you got??

Daisy said...

Asta, all that racket so early in the morning would make me very, very crabilated!

Moco said...

There are times when things should just be left alone. There is nothing like the looks of an older building.
Crepes, how devine.

Hollie and Janie said...

I am so sorry that all that noise has been interrupting your beauty sleep! How rude of those construction workers!!
I do hope your park will be lovely, after all you have had to endure!!
That food looks yummy!!!!!

Shaggy and Scout said...

All that noise must be sooooo annoying! But it will be interesting to follow the progress out your window.
Our mom wishes more old buildings would be saved too.....

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

I think it is very good, Asta, that you are practising the good dog rule, and being "totally in peeps' faces", how else can they know we are there?!!!!!!

oh your food looked so tempting, and yummylicious.

Mack said...

I think you need to put your hard hat and steel toed boots on and go over there and tell those construction guys how it's suppose to be done!

Yes, it has been such a sad week at DWB. And we just found out Petra's gwampa passed away too.


tula monstah said...

hi sweet asta,
How are your auntie & cousin going to ignore you? You have important things to tell them. Next time, try sitting right on top of them-- you'll have their full attention!

oh, i'll be right ovah for some of those canolis? yum.

kisses, tula

Unknown said...


I chuckled at your tongue twista comment. hee hee. I hope your sky is not taken away. Humans should refurbish the building..

But on a better note, a tasty treat always saves the day. yummy.. slurp... drool...... oh I hope I didn't drool on your brunch.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Our Mom's mouth is drooling for one of those yummy cannolis - guess we might like a taste too.

Have a great weekend.

Eric said...

Poor Asta. How mean of those workmen. I hope the new park will be pretty and somewhere you can go romp and play.

Now those pancakes look delicious. Dogalicious. We had our pancake day a couple of weeks ago Asta. Don't even ask if i got any....hope you were luckier.

Love and kissies, Eric xx

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Sweet Asta, your loss of sleep hasn't affected you good looks at all! Sorry they keep jack hammering and making noise. BabyRD hates noise(except her own voice!). Are those cheese blintzes I smell?? Yum! XXOO-Hootie & BRD

Molly the Airedale said...

Why can't anything ever stay the same way? That's what mom always says!

Love ya lots,

Deb Cushman said...

We know what you mean. We used to sit at the window and look out over lovely fields -- now there are houses and apartments. Not so pretty a sight!

But those yummy treats look delicious. They would surely make you forget your troubles for a little while!

Toffee said...

Maybe you could send some of those yummy eatables to Scooter and Jamie?

Hope you had a fabooolus weekend.

Hansel said...

i would be so mad too Asta, i'd bark bark bark at those sounds and tell them just how i felt! -benny

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, we're sorry that those Jack things are destroying your neighborhood. we don't like "progress" either. but at least you got some yummy foodables to cheer you up. maybe we should all move to a big dog park in the country.


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

So sorry to hear about the noise waking you up so early, Asta! Hopefully it will be finished soon,and you can get more of your beauty sleep...=) The food looks yummy! What are they called? *drools*


Kirby said...

Asta, I say you protest. Make a little sign you can hold in your mouth and then march! Show them the terrier power, but just make it home in time to eat, your foodables are always so yum!

Your pal,

KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

Hi Asta,
I hopes they don't take away yours sky, that would be terrible.
But your Daddi's treats look really really good. Yum.
Love & Purrs,

Huskee and Hershey said...

6.30??! Did you say 6.30 in the morning??!! My mom would have a fit if she gets woken up at that time by the noise!! (Something about needing beauty sleep)..
