Aftew ouw spectacoolaw wedding we had anothew bootiful suwpwise waiting fow us in ouw woom..a lettew wif tickets and an explanation:

On behalf of "the gang" (Karl, Ruis, Momo, Sassy, Olive and myself), I am sending along this wedding gift for Myrna & Gibert.
We are sending you on a romantic weekend to THE MOST romantic city in the world, Venice. We are putting you up at the Gritti Palace Hotel located on the Grand Canal.

There you will be guests in the honeymoon suite. We have a arranged a romantic dinner for two on a terrace over looking the Grand Canal.

After dinner, you will be taken to the world famous Harry's Bar

where you enjoy the WORLD FAMOUS Bellini cocktail, which is said to have been invented at Harry's.

After your drinks, you will be taken on a sunset ride in a beautiful gondola.

We hope you enjoy your gift and that you and Gilbert have a wonderful time in Venice. You happen to see anyone who looks like any of us, don't worry; I am sure it is just a coincidence! Hehehehehehe!
Opus (on behalf of the gang)

the speciality of the house is the Bellini..fwesh white peach juice in Champagne.."to us and all ouw fwiends, may we all have love fuwwevew!" said my Gilbewt

and what could be bettew fow an end of a pawfect day, than a womantic gondola wide, next to the one you love most in the wowld

Myrna, you and Gilbert have a wonderful time on your honeymoon! Mommy & Daddy have stayed there before and have had the wonderful bellinis at Harry's! Mommy is very jealous! :)

Asta! Mommy just can't wait to see you!

Gus said...

Ooooooo..what romantic friends you have. A lovely idea to arrange special attendants for you at the hotel and bar. That way you could relax and enjoy the moment without strange eyes watching you.

Hope Mommi and Asta enjoyed their day.

Ruis and I just bartended, hahahahaha

Petra said...

What a perfect honeymoon after a perfect wedding! I'd love to be on that gondola with you.

Sassy Kat said...

It looks like everything was perfect for the surprise honeymoon. In the photos it looks like we were spying on you but that is not the case. We kept a low profile while making sure that all of your needs were met. We left no small detail overlooked.
Opus and Ollie had the greatest of ideas and the rest of the gang was more than happy to make sure the stay in Venice was the most perfect.
Love the spa photo of you and your mom. You two deserved a rest after all of the planning that went into the wedding.

Lucia said...

Ciao miei amici!

Ah, Venezia ... bellissima! La mia ragazza says to try the tuna carpaccio at Harry's Bar, and to be sure to visit the Guggenheim ... fantastico!

Tanti baci!

Jans Funny Farm said...

You have very generous and nosy ... uh, helpful friends. It was so kind of them to give such a generous gift to the newlyweds and to remember you and your mom, Asta.

Agatha and Archie said...

Ahhhh how lovely and what a surprise!!! We could go for one of those martinis right now.....We are still EXHAUSTED ( I did find Archie,I am not sure if he is grounded or not...) Love A+A

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

What a beautiful honey moon. The time of your life I bet. Though with such a happy marriage it will all be fantastic!
I wonder why you felt like you were being watched, them cats couldn't have had nothing to do with it, could they?

What a spectacular gift, those Wheelies are so very lucky! I can't believe the opulence of that hotel, its unbelievable! I sure hope that you and Mommi enjoyed your treatment too!

Sweet Myrna!

I have no doubt that your days with Gilbert will be filled with fun and love! You are right about having your mommi & daddi as an example. They are NUTS about each other (as I am about your sissy, Asta!)!

Relax and enjoy your honeymoon, and be sure to tip your maid (she is gorgeous and looks very much like somepup I love)!

Goober love & smooches,
