Oh....our mommy LOVES peonies. They remind her of her grandmother's garden in late May, of her refrigerator keeping them nice until Memorial Day, and of the wonderful scent in the old Buick stationwagon as the family drove from cemetery to cemetery to decorate the graves (they are happy memories.) You are so lucky to have them in your home. It looks like you had a LOVELY Mother's Day - that makes us happy. And next time we come to NYC, we're eating at YOUR house!

Tanti baci!

Looks like it was a wonderful Mothers Day at your house Asta. You guys always have such yummy foodables, I drool when I read your posts. He he. Mom was drooling over the flowers you and your Daddy got for your Mommy. I got my Mom a card which I ate when she opened it!! Oh Well....He he!

Your pal,

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dear Asta,
We made our moms so happy on pet mom's day, didn't we?
Your mommy's day is fabulous, as always!
Your daddy and you sure know how to express your love to mommy.
We play the smile box over and over, we love every second of it!
Your mommy look so young and pretty, specially in that blouse that has melted our hearts seeing her in that!
(we had to look at hundred of your mommy's pictures to figure out the size)
Your post has brightened our day!
Love you

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

Did your mommi receive the big batch of goober smooches I sent her for Mother's Day? They were in a hermetically sealed box since they were some of my juiciest!

The peonies look so bootiful... like your mommi! Of course, the food looked amazing. And, the wrasslin' match between you and Duffy provided all the entertainment anyone could want! (BOY. He really is getting to be a big boy! I can always tell which one is him - he's almost completely white except for his punkin head.)

We are counting down the days. Can you believe that next week at this time we'll be at Scruff, Lacie, and Stan's house?!!

Goober love & smooches,

Hollie and Janie said...

What beautiful flowers, Asta! Peonies are my mama's favorite!

Snowball said...

The flowers are very pretty. We liked the pictures in the Smilebox. Especially the ones of you and Duffy.

We have 2 peony bushes in our yard. Once a few more buds bloom, we're going to share pictures. We knew we had them when we moved into the house last year, but Mom and I don't remember them being so vibrant in color. And really, we only remember having the one out front, we don't remember having the one in the back yard.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Hi Asta,

Looks like your Mommy and Aunti Kawen had a great Mothers Day. I went with Dad to Massachusetts to visit grandma I only wish Millie and I could get along like you and Duffy; very cute slide show. Our behavior has sometimes been unladylike. My breeder said that unfortunately two female Wires usually cannot co-exist in the same household.

I saw the pictures of that Wirey boy you met on your walk. Boy's sometimes just don't grasp the word No. Although no to me means do it again 10 seconds later. Hehehe...

Luna Licks,
