Ha! Ha! That is hilarious about someone asking which aisles doggies are from! You look so cute in that trolley, though, I'm not surprised!

What would your mommi do without you? It's obvious she appreciates all of your help.

So tell me, did you get that WHOLE slice of pizza? Hmmmmmm? Glad to see your mommi is so generous to polite doggies. I can do polite. No problem. Tell her to stock up. I eat anything!

It's only a little over 3 weeks until I get to smooch your sweet face!!

Goober love & smooches,

Martha said...

Hi Asta
Thank goodness your mom didnt let that lady buy you - you were looking awfully cute in that shopping basket!
Your slice of pizza looked lovely - wish we could have shared that with you.
Sorry about the wind - we have a nice day here today with the sun shining. That makes for a good start to the weekend. We have to go shopping for a birthday present today but they dont let us in the shops in the UK!!!
Have a great weekend
Martha & Bailey xx

Weddings take a lot of time and engery. We know that you want everything to be perfect and that requires a lot of stamnia and concentration. Pizza is always a good way to revive yourself.

Ciao bella Asta!

You are la bomba for doing all of this magnifico work for Myrna's matrimonio! I'm sure it's going to be the wedding of il secolo!

Tanti baci!

PeeEss: Tira vento here, too -- it was blowing right in my face when la mia ragazza and I went for a walk ieri and made my ears all sticky-uppy!

Rosie said...

Hi Asta,
Love your photos as usual - and your city life style. As a coutry pug (NJ) I find your outings amazing.
Loves from pugs,

Gus said...

Ohhhh My...the Pizza looks soooooo goood. And you look cute yourself sweetie.

Don't worry about catching up, sure we miss you and Mommi (well, Ok, we miss your Daddi too) but we know you are already busy with the wedding, and now we are sure that you are all helping Petey's mom as much as you can.

We can wait


Daisy said...

Asta you are so lucky to get a big bite of PEETSA! Yummy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Mmmmm... New York pizza... mom talks about it all the time with tears in her eyes! We hope we'll get to try some someday!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

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

Oh Asta...weddin' plannin' is exhaustin' isn't it??? You looked fab in that cart...none of us would ever lie down in a cart...were you sleepy??? Thank heavens your mommi gave you some nourishment, dear Girl...that pizza looked amazing!!

Stanley stole my dingo bone this morning and I'm in a somewhat ill humor...plus I'm grounded till next week...how boring is that...

It's gonna be 85 and sunny today...and Mumsie said her shorts are way tighter than they were last summer...wonder who shrunk them...

Barkies, sweet Girl...


The WriggleButts said...

That last picture is so pretty - even if you're not in it! And that pizza made Mom hungry (I'm always hungry). We hope the person was joking and not actually thinking your mom found you somewhere and was going to buy you!??!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I hope you and your Mom found everything you were looking for!
Shopping is great!... well, that is what my mom says!)
Did you eat all that pizza??? Mmmm.... lucky you!
Kisses and hugs

Molly the Airedale said...

OMG, we can tell that you're having the time of your life, Asta! Riding in the shopping cart and pizza!! Do you need any help? We can be there ASAP!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sassy Kat said...

Busy, busy, and more busy you are! It really does take a lot to make the wedding happen, you need a wedding planner but I think you are the wedding planner for this one.
The pizza looks like the best of the shopping.
Also with a heavy heart I wanted to let you know that our dear sweet friend Charlie has gone to the bridge. I picture her playing hard with Roscoe and those two catching up on things. Forever she will be free to run and play. Someday we will see her again and other that we love that have gone before us.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dear Asta,
Did you have more fun in the cart ride or with the pizza?
I saw that the cart was still empty (or half full with you in it?) but you already took a snack rest?
Asta, I wish I was a girl so I was not disqualified for the bridemaids pawty, sob sob.
Do you mind if I brag about the lovely paint posters that you sent to us in the mail earlier?
Love y'all

Joe Stains said...

oh that pizza looks amazing. I'd even help with the wedding plans if pizza was involved. You are very nice to be the wedding planner and make sure everything is getting done.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We would love to go shopping with you. Your peeps really know how to treat a girl!!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey Asta, no worries (pls note the Aussie expressions here from my Jeannie!) - life is more important than blogging, we understand.

hey your trip in the "cart" looked exciting, we call them "trolleys" here, but I have never been in one!

You are lucky!

Have a great weekend, Marvin xxxxxxxx

Hansel said...

wow asta, that pizza looks wonderful!-benny

The Black and Tans. said...


Wow! You rode in a shopping trolley! Hope your Mummy was good at steering it! hee hee.

We have to say your table manners are exceptional, you looked so ladylike eating you piece of pizza.

Happy weekend.

Hi, Asta -

Mama, Kaci and I love your pictures preparing for the wedding. Love is definitely in the air.

Mama and Papa will be married for 28 years in about three weeks.

It is 73° right now. (Hershey speaking) Mama, can we go for a walk again today?!?

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Teddy said...

Oh, New York sounds like a wonderful place to live with pizza on every corner and doggies allowed in the stores!! I'm sure you're helping your mom by just being with her.


Chef said...

You're so lucky you fit in a shopping cart, Asta - that looks like so much fun. What a great joyride I could go on zipping up and down the aisles!! The only store dogs are allowed in around here are pet stores. Mama took me shopping there last week but I was too big to sit in the cart. New York is such a fun place to live, especially with pizza on every corner. No wonder everyone ♥s NY! I seriously have to ask Mama to consider relocating...


Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

shopping + pizza??? that sound berry wonderful.

slurpy lick,

Sabrina de Cutie-Pie :) said...

Whoaaa....u r allowed into a shopping compex??is sOooOOO Co0L!!in Malaysia we r not even allowed to got to th playground..btw..I love ur big big piece of pizza!*drool*


Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Reading your blog has made me realise that shopping could actually be fun. In Scotland us dogs tend to get tied up outside the store, and I NEVER see pizza being sold on the street corner!
Cheers, Hamish.

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

I know what you mean about the shopping thing...

I tell my Mom if she took me with her, she wouldn't always forget the most important thing...

I could always go for a slice of pizza, too...

Abby xxxooo

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Thanks for responding to my begging about sending healing power to baby Axl. Your visit, support and keeping your paws crossed for baby Axl means a lot to me, sweet Asta! He's getting better now, the latest news I heard!
Asta, Ximui and Chubs love to attend Myrna's wedding, I told them that they can't go in jean and plaid shirts, so unless they'll show up in nice suits like you have dressed me, please have them join a group of Salzburg sightseeing tours, hehe!
Love you
(my mom is extremely busy, she doesn't have time to shop for my puggy brothers, please forgive her for not sending the cutout photos, and again, thanks a million for my suit, Brad Pitt must be jealous, wooof!)

Faya said...

Ahhhh shopping.... I love shopping....and it looks like Lucia is discovering the joy of shopping too....
Kisses, Faya
PS : Dyos et moi nous ne viendrons pas en Autriche....Dyos se fait opérer le 1er mai (adieu les boules...) et je dois veiller sur lui. Bisous

Dexter said...

Goodness, what a busy little terrier you are with all that shopping. What would the wheelies do without you?

Watch out for those Lacie smoothies.


Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

Wow, you are the ultimate shopping dog! And hello, you got PIZZA! Yummers!!! I hope that slice re-energized you for the rest of the shopping day.

Your pal,

Hollie and Janie said...

What a very fun outing, Asta! I need to plan a trip to NY, so you and I can have a girls' shopping day!! The pizza looks tres yummy!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta, You make us feel better when we know we're not the only ones who get behind. Sometimes it feels like we'll NEVER catch up!

I (Fergi) want to tell you... I see your speckles! We're speckled the same! And, yes, Farfel loves my speckles. And he likes the word speckles. That makes me feel happy and special)

And Jake says, "I wish *I* could ride in a shopping cart and eat pizza like that! I'd be good. I promise I would"

Last... it's been fun tweeting.

Keep on waggin,
Jake and Fergi :)

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Wow, you are so lucky to be able to go into a shopping complex, Asta! And you got to ride in a trolley too! How awesome is that? I like the sentence where your Mom got asked if they were selling doggies in the supermarket! LOLLL! The pizza looks yummy, as always...*grins*


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Don't feel bad about not catching up sweetie. You have lots on your plate right now.See you soon!
