and so it begins..the Wedding of the Yeaw

Ruby, that most wondewful pilot wif hew own aiweline,picked evewyone up in time and got us all to Salzbuwg Austwia fow my sissie Myrna' wedding to hew twoo love Gilbert

as oosoual, evewything was impeccable..thewe is no weduction of luxoowy ow sewvice on Aiw Wuby..if you want to see the incwedibly decowated inside of the plane fow this occasion pleez go to Ruby's bloggie

Thewe wewe fuwwfwiends fwom all ovew the globe, and I'm pwoud to say all the wheelies, catses and doggies had a gweat time togethew.
you can biggify all the pictoowes to see evewyone!

all the wheelies decided to stay at the Gasthof Maria Plein..it's just outside the city wif bootiful views of the hills and vewy close to the Chuwch whewe the cewemony will take place

Gilbert is on the balcony wif Dr.Pierre standing by, along wif Myrna's twin Bwuvvew Max in case he has anothew incident of Am Kneesia
Myrna is at an undisclosed location, although she is pining fow Gilbewt, she's not allowed to see him untill the wedding

A pawtial list:
Nigel, Burt,Cyril, Opal Autumn,Hector,TripTrap, Bentley,Seymour,Brosky,GusGus Digby,Nick,Gertie, Blossom,Tam,Dunstan,Josephine, Roxy,Stan the Man, Fiona GertieLeurodale,

you may have noticed two familiar-looking wheelies standing in the corner looking preoccupied in the midst of all the celebrating. “Who are those intense looking fellows?” you might have wondered. Well, it seems they are Professsor Jacques E. Maigret and Justin Herkimer Clouseau, brothers of none other than two of the most famous detectives in the world. Originally from France, where they tried very hard to live up to the brilliant literary and cinematographic careers of their siblings, they decided to emigrate to Florida last year to start over. They found new homes with Jake and Just Harry (notice the eerie resemblance?) but somehow they’ve never been able to make a go of it as detectives. And learning the language seems to be beyond them. Feeling so disoriented, they jumped at the chance to hop on Aire Ruby and return to Europe for a few days. We hope they find themselves at this once-in-a-lifetime event!!

Look who's coming down the path! my dawling cat fwiendses. They awe my lifelong fwiends and fellow boawd membews fwom Little pwoductions..the makews of CCSI. I'm so happy they came. and have bwought theiw families wif them.

Notty,Mrs.Oz,Luna,OliveAmelia and hew bwuvvew Opus,my sissie Sassy, that happily mawwied couple and an inspiwation to us all Karl and Ruis, my dawling ostwailian sissie Momo, and finally TinTin

because of Ruby's special anti-jet-lag dwinks, we all had loads of enewgy to wun awound Salzbuwg and do some sightseeing
of couwse we had to go to the house whewe Mozawt was bowned
(we sowt of got cawwied away pwetending we lived thewe and playing chasey chase up and down the staiws and thwoughout the place)

Mrs. Oz loved sitting in the uppew window. Maggie was able to show off hew supewb beawdie while hanging out of the upstaiws. Lucia just kept singing to get hew Bustewigo's attention.
On the fiwst floow Willow and Lucie managed to squeeze into one window, as did Gabbi and Agatha( I think they found some good gossip). Karl kept a safe distance on the doow fwame..it was such a cwush of us on the stweet.
left to wight on the stweet
Busterigo,Riley,Baxter,Ruby,Mitch,Archie,Hootie,Bailey,me-Asta and Lacie and Pedro

all that sightseeing and shopping made us quite thiwsty, and to ouw delight we found a pawfectly bootiful beewgawden neawby

at this point, we wewe all dwessed vewy casooally, except fow Jake of the Bawkalotz boys..I think he wanted to get his outfit just wight and jumped the gun wif his timing, hehehehe
Karl,Sassy and Ruis took casooal to a new meaning by showing up in theiw pajamas.
I think a gweat time was had by all..we dwank beew, ate snausages and pwetzels and sang and smooched.
I was mostly busy kissing Stanley my Goobew boy, but I did notice some of my fwiends who wewe thewe:
Sophie and Joe Stains,The fouw bootiful Doughalmoow Beagles, Eric and Toffee, Hootie and Aggie,Ludo bwinging a flowew to some lucky giwl,, Butchy,Lucia, Merv my Stanny's cat bwo,ouw new fwiend Paddy the WFT wif a delicious sausage in his mouf. my BFF Lacie stawing at Archie who was sneeping soundly, Scooter looking like he aweady had a few of those beews, Chubs licking his lipses and Ximui,Scruffy and babyStan,Mica Peteys Bwuvvewcat, Momo sissie next to Sally that bootiful english wiwy giwl

We all fell into bed, happy and exhausted and weady fow the wedding in the mowning..some of us wewe having some Salzbuwgew Nockewnl on the tewwace fow bweakfast..thewe was still a chill in the aiw and we sowt of got lost in convewsation, when Poppy, all dwessed to the nines and Noah looking vewy dashing and handsome in his mowning suit showed up and weminded us that we only had a few minutes to get to the chuwch
Oh MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

babyRocket Dog had hew tiawa on, and hew fancy fuw coat, and Hootie was vewy elegant in his hound -toof-checked coat, but Tanner (the doofus) was sitting on the table in his casooal scawf, and Stella had dwessed appeawantly fow skiing(well we did say Austwia)Merv looked totally unconcewned and had his coffee while the bootiful Ruby(Butchy and Snickers' cat-sis) looked on in hew gowgeous festive dwess.
I was still in my polka dotted jacket, and was now beginning to panick.

don't wowwy sweet weadews..the west of the pictoowes awe being developed and you will get to see all of us in ouw finewy and the Happy couple at the altaw
all I can say it was MAGIC!
sweet dweams evewyone and Happy May fiwst!

We are having an absolute BALL! Salzburg is just fabulous! We can't wait for Myrna to wheel down the aisle!

Love ya lots,

TwoSpecialWires said...

Awww. We are so sad we couldn't make it. I think I'm going to demand that the other one of us gets some serious work on "the anxiety issue". The photographs are absolutely PAWSOME! Everyone looks so happy and so beautiful. What a grand time you are having.

And wait till our humine sis sees everyone at Mozart's house. She will drool with envy. She, herself, hung out those windows (and snuck a touch at Mozart's piano -- we hope no one got in trouble inside that house). She really wanted us to go to the wedding.


With love and best wishes,
Jake and the other one

Oh dear.

What will Gabbi think?

But it was wonderful seeing everybody and having such a delicious Salzbuwgew Nockewnl. Never had one of those before!!!!

Homer said...

Hey Asta and Asta's mommy,

My humans had a great time at Venice. Especially Missus, she's been drooling at the gondola men. They stayed at Saturnia hotel which is directly opposite to Hotel Flora which was tuck in a small street. They went there to have a look. Missus thought of your parents, trying to imagine them walking down the same streets as them. They love the resturant at La Caravella (at Saturnia).

Venice is a booti-ful place but very pricey. They were surprised to see many dogs there because there were no parks for them to run freely. Most of them had to be leashed.

Anyway, have your parents been to Prague or Vienna? What are their thoughts of these places?


Mason Dixie said...

Wow what a turn out it is. =) congratulations to the happy couple.

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

Muss I denn, Muss I denn
Zum statele hinaus...statele hinaus...

Und du, mein Schatz, bleibst hier....

Wenn i komm, etc...

Lacie drank a few too many of her biersmoothies at the Biergarten....

Um Asta...the Wheelies are talkin' bout doing the Stations of the Cross at the Kirke...somethin' bout there being a hooge hill to zoom down to the bottom of the mountain....I hope they don't get in trouble...

And they want to go the the salt mines in Hallein....and go zoomie down the slides...OMD, this is sooooo much fun!!!!!!!!

Thank you my best friend forever, for plannin such a totally cool and fabbers wedding!!!!!
