Oh my!

I khan imagine how nervous and excited I would be if any of my boyfuriends were khoming to visit!

Good lukhk passing the days and nights until then!


Kelly said...

Oh Asta, some boys have no manners! He was probably a teenager. Can't blame him though, you ARE beautiful!

I am SO excited that your sweet Stanley is coming to visit you! I just know you'll be on Cloud 9 the whole time!

Well, Asta, some guys are just thick....

Next week... NEXT WEEK?!!!!!!!

Moco said...

Sometimes guys can be pretty thick. We are hoping that you do not throw up on Stan. We are looking forward to seeing the two of you strolling in NY.
Tell mommi that the rug is a Costco special and it hides a lot.

Martha said...

Oh Asta
Some boys can be very difficult - for some reason they always want to get to know Martha better. She get quite annoyed and Bailey has to become assertive on her behalf! You did well to handle that difficult situation by yourself and in such a tactful manner. We thought that the 'Lacie' face was most impressive. Girl Power!
We are excited for you that Stan will be soon be with you. We expect you have already planned where you are going to go together. Perhaps a nice stroll in the park - a coffee at a nice cafe - oh we can hardly wait. It is so romantic!
We will be waiting in anticipation.
Martha & Bailey xx

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Oh he needed to know that you are a one dog girl. The nerve of him..

Look forward to seeing the pics when your boyfriend visits.

Daisy said...

Asta, that is a very good "NO" face you made! I'm glad you stood up to that rude boy.

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, it's so exciting that Stanley is coming to see you. we can't wait to hear all about it and see some photos of you two lovepups together.


Fred said...

I don't think I knew that "No means no!" I'm very persistent! ;P

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

good face. I am going to practice doing it. I agree - sometimes weare just not in the mood for extra sniffies!
your pal, Morgan

Rosie said...

You Go Girl!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

I can only dream of my sweet MoMo coming for a visit. Tell Stanley hi for me. ~Socks

OH, Asta that is great news. We knows you will have tons of fun. We nees some tips on attracting boyfriends. We are two years old now and no boys have shown any interest, we can't imagine why. ~Scylla & Charybdis

I can be your bodyguard Asta. I am sure when I say NO everyone will listen. ~Fenris

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Silly boy, you are just too sweet, Asta, you should have given him a swift kick.

We know you must be so excited about Stanley's vist - you two are going to have a wonderful time.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Gus said...

Asta: I am so sorry you were hassled that way, and by a wirey fellow too! Most of us have better manners, you know. Or maybe your civilizing influence has worn off on us. Even the heron cam is something of a gentleman.

The Black and Tans. said...

Oh dear Asta how rude of the young whippersnapper!

You are a young lady and he must respect you and accept that a lady's decision is final.

Hope you don't flutter too much over the next few days. We cannot wait to see photos of you both.

It is just so romantic.

Molly and Taffy

TwoSpecialWires said...

*I* never would have treated you like that! NEVER! It upsets me that you had to deal with that kind of persistent sniffing. I was born knowing better, and it has been cultured into me during the past year. Mostly out of the respect that I'm taught, but also because Fergi flashes that face at me sometimes. A gentler version of it was the last one on her last blog. Did you see it?

Hrmph. Unruly boys.

On a happier note: we are so glad that you and Stan will be spending some time together. Fergi is especially happy (and a little bit jealous. She's waiting for her time with Farfel.

Have fun beautifying yourself. I know that's what girls (and some guys... yeah, me!) like to do.


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

My sweet Asta! I can't believe that boy on the street!! You tell him that your Auntie Deb will defend your honor!

Stanley is one very lucky dog!

Love, Auntie Deb

Mack said...

I hope that wiry dude doesn't act up when Stanley comes to visit! He will be sorrrrrrrry he messed with you!

Lacy said...

ooo asta, heehee me likes to smell too, but me never beed around a girl doggie...that puppy wuz very interested in u..wow, not long b4 u gits to c Stan the Man..

b safe,

Lady Kaos said...

Some boys just don't listen very well.
Don't get too nervous about Stanley's visit. Otherwise you might end up passing out and missing part of it! hehe

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

Oh Asta...how wooooode!!! Oh my...I think you have the patented Lacie Smirk down even better than the original!!! WHAT A LOOK!

And BTW, Wiry Boy was bootiful, but his tail...um...a tiny bit too short...

Oh...did ya ask him if he dated? Text me his number, I'll put him in my book!

I'm thinkin' I need to fly up to New York this weekend and go shoppin' with ya...I need some new spring outfits...everything I have from last year is just SO YESTERDAY.

We could go and have one of those famous Hudson River Mud Facials...I know, you've had a million of them, but I would like to try one....

And we could get our nails done and everything....

Love ya lots...Laciegirlie

Petra said...

No need to worry, Asta ~~ just ask Myrna how to deal with a case of the nerves.

How much fun you're going to have with Stanley!!!

Molly the Airedale said...

Good for you for telling that boy in a nice way to "buzz off!"
We can't wait for you and Stanley and Sophie to come to our house, Asta! We are counting the hours!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Kelli said...

Boy that pup had some nerve! It was good of you to stick up for yourself like that! I hope you and Stanley have a great time together next week!
:) Tibby

Lucia said...

Ciao bella Asta!

Sheeeesh! Some doggies just can't take a hint! One stroll with Stanley ought to do the trick, though. I am soooo excited for you, dolce ragazza -- your darling Stanley right there, in your very own citta, in your very own casa! Sigh ... amore!

Tanti baci!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Hey us boys just want to make sure you really mean NO.. Callie usually nips me when she means business..

Persephone and Buster said...

geesh asta...Ms Blue here, i'm sure "the look" was to subtle. if they are sooooo terribly ruuuude, i give them the Ms.Blue special ALPHA-bitch-ROAR! the same one i would tell my pups to bug off with (just noise no tooths). that usually does it...someone has to teach them some manners :o). it does seem to be effective -- usually.
hi, theBUSTER here...she's not foolin' it'll stop a dobie in mid-snoof! anyhow.. you'll have the gooberstan (the man) and he will protect you!! have a great visit and give him a butt bopp from the blues!
theBUSTER, Ms.Persephone & Ms. Blue too

doyle and mollie said...

you are way too sophisticated for a lad off the street asta and do make sure you get all your beauty sleep

Joe Stains said...

omdog that pushy little WFT! Stan would have snassled him right to the ground! I can't wait to see you guys together!!

Anonymous said...

Good reaction, Asta!! Especially that face, hahahaha.
I have never understood why that doggy "knowing each other better" has to be done on the back side. I like to look another in the eyes.
But that boy will learn when he comes face-to-face with Stanley! :-)

See you soon, girl...

Headbutts from me,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Some dogs really don't understand the word NO, right?
I know you must be feeling very excited about Stan's visit!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh that boy is so rude... my mama always taught me to respect the ladies.. he should have respected you Asta! Just wait till Stanley is there.. I bet he wouldn't dare to do that again!

Psst.. are you primping up for Stanley's visit? It's sooooo exciting...

Hoover said...

Hey Asta,

You are way cute! I really, really, really like that alligator you have. I'm gonna ask my human to get me one like it. You can be furocious bittin' a gator!

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Asta -

You showed class telling that boy dog you are spoken for. We like that face.

But you did say he is good looking - he just needs to learn that "NO" does not mean "YES."

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. I didn't get to see Kaci on Sunday. Grammy left her at her house. There is a poodle named Abby (she lives with Papa's brother) who is about 14 years old. Kaci is too hyper for her but she and I got along.

The Oceanside Animals said...

Sometimes you have to put on your "I Mean Business" face. After all, you are a lady!

Dewey Dewster said...

Well Asta...

Who was that fresh guy tryin' ta sniff yer giggie??? Did ya get his name there???? We didn't know yer special Stanley was comin' ta visit ya.....gee, have a swell time...'n don't throw up....it isn't ladylike.....

Dewey Dewster here...

TwoSpecialWires said...


We keep thinkin aboutcha being able to spend time with Stan soon. We're hoping you get lots of pictures.

My Farfel's MOMMY is leaving for NYC in the morning, and leavin Farfel behind while she's there. There's been some chatter about them moving to The Big Apple. I told him he'd love it. My Aunt Judith lived there with her big Great Dane and she (Catherine) knew where ALL the bagel shops were.

Anyhow, we mostly wanted to thank you for thinkin so much about Fergi. If she'd quit jumping up on (and down off of) the big bed, Mom'd be happier. She snuck another leap tonight.

We should hear from the vet-man tomorrow. We'll keep you posted and distract ourselves until then with thoughts of you and Stanley.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Asta Sweetie, You sure did let that fellow have what for!! That face Lacie taught you is funny. Hootie actually does the same face, but then it's followed by the ninja routine where he goes nuts. Not near as cute as you!
AireKisses, BabyRocketDog

That guy was rude to you Asta. I apologize for all the jerky boy dogs out there. Please accept.(Your Lacie face is cute!)
WelshieHugs, Hootie

Stanley said...

Ahhh! Sweetpea Astaroni!

You do a great LacieFace! It would definitely get my attention, no doubt about it! (Then again, my girl has taught me to try to be considerate of all pups I meet, even if I AM a little socially-challenged.)

You know, though, I can't blame that wirey boy for noticing you and for being persistent. You DO inspire a guy with your beauty (and that irresistible fuzzbutt)!

If he keeps bothering you, just sing that song to him, "My boyfriend's back!" I'll take care of things when I get there (but it sounds to me like you have already taken care of business)!


Goober love & smooches,

Hamish Westie said...

I just want to put in a word in defence of the wee chappie you met in the street there. Remember that some of us males are a bit, well, shall we say 'underdeveloped' in the area of emotional intelligence. We just don't pick up on signals that are apparently obvious to you ladies. I mean, an optimist could interpret that snarl as a sort of twisted smile? And you are every gorgeous you know...
Cheers! H.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hi Asta! So sorry that I didn't visit sooner! Gosh, you sure did give him a piece of your mind there...I guess he's still a small boy and doesn't know his place yet. *grins* Can't wait to hear about Stanley's stay at your place!

Hope you have a great weekend!


Noah the Airedale said...

Well I never!!!! The nerve.
You must be beside yourself with excitment at seeing Stanley next week.


Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

What a fresh boy...I'm glad you put him in his place...

How exciting that Stanley is coming to see you...I know you will have a wonderful time...

Abby xxxooo

Anonymous said...

Hi Asta! That nerve of that guy to keep bothering you when you told him politely to leave you alone! How exciting that you'll soon be seeing your one-and-only Stanley! He sure is a lucky boy.

See ya!

Eric said...

OOOHHH Asta. That face was way BETTER than Lacie's snaggle toothed scary snarl. He,hee you can't be feline ok sweet girl. Got the fuzzy wuzzies???? Yeah, I though so. You've got the wiry love bug like me. Ain't love grand? Can't wait to see you steaking into your Stannie's boys outstetched paws. In black and white of course. Like the best olde films.

Love and kissies Eric xxxxxx

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Asta, The boys are always doing that to me too. They are just so pushy, but I guess they can't help themselves when they are around independent women like us.

So you and Stanley. Are you going to actually sleep in the same bed? Will your mom and dad let you?


Unknown said...

Hi Asta!

Finally getting around to visiting some of the blogs and leaving a comment! Are you getting excited about seeing your extra-special guests next weekend? I'll be back on Saturday so maybe I can meet Gooberstan at the run on Sunday. Hope he doesn't bite me!

Hey, I'm not scruffy anymore! My coat has gone all soft and silky from all the saltwater. I'm a lean, not-at-all-mean, surfing machine!

Your pal,


Allison Walton said...

Woo will be just fine, Asta! Just tayk deep breeths.
