Hi Asta,

Boy do we LOVE LOVE LOVE those pictures of you with your orangatun, they are SO funny! BOL!

We will say prayers for all your friends okay?

Wags and woofs,
Benson and Gibson

Clive said...

Ah Asta, that was a lovely post. All those kisses - they were great photos and we loved the fun you had with your orangutan - but shame you couldn't go on the walk!

The Smilebox presentation was great also - we enjoyed seeing the photos of all those plants and the fireboat on the Hudson!

Hope you have a good weekend and maybe there might be some positive news on Laska.

Take care

Ruby Bleu said...

I just love all your bootiful belly spots. I sure wish they'd let you go walk on the High Line...you are a tidy girl and would most certainly clean up after yourself!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Juno said...

Hello Asta! The first photo shows how happy you were with your daddi!! We're glad you had a nice walky.

We also pray for all our friends. :)

Jake of Florida said...

We saw the opening of the High Line on the CBS Sunday Morning Show a few weeks ago and were so sorry we couldn't be there once it opened.

But no dogs? How egotistical of some humans!!

It is lovely though -- perhaps one day you can sneak Asta in in her sherpa case!! Like going abroad!

Lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Golden Samantha said...

Great post, Asta - you do so very well alone - just love those pix of your orangutang! So sorry you can't go some places - I can't either. I know we have a lot of doggies these days to think about - we are lucky to be so loved.
Hugs xo

Jans Funny Farm said...

It's good you had some fun in your life. All these sad events can get a doggy depressed. And we don't want you to be depressed, Asta.

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

Oh Asta...those pics of the Highline are sooooo cool!!! Maybe we should get a bunch of dogs together to do a pwotest march on it??? Scruffy could raise his hindleggie in a salute of sorts...

We've been very sad and worried bout all the sad things our bloggie friends have been going through...it looks like your twip to the wun may have cheered you up a tad...and that orange monkey seems to have kicked ur fuzzy derriere...

As for you chastising me re my little Stains kiss...well...I certainly had NO IDEA it was Joey....could that sorta be like manslaughter??? Ya know...not premeditated or somethin'???? And for him to just LEAVE me there in that fouled nest??? Those herons coulda ripped me to shreds...well...naaaaaaaaaaa...I sorta slugged one of them too when he made some comment bout the size of my jaw...it's my beardie, Asta...it just needs a small trim....(Lacie completely forgets about her sin of coveting her blog friend's beau and runs to the mirror to see if her beard has grown any more, thus making her head 6 times the size of her body...)

Ok Ok...I'll go and light a candle or something...maybe I'll wait till tonight when Scruffy becomes his most expulterous...(that means makes frequent expulsions...;it's a scrabble wordie) and light it then...you know..kill 2 issues with one candle...er something...Lacie briefly ponders her karma...seemingly satisfied after 2.976 seconds...)

Hafta go and do some errands sweet girlie...

Love you lotstest!!!


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

Oh Asta...we have one of those Spimoni ice cream dogs at day care....

Way cool!!!!!


Martha said...

Hi Asta
So nice to see you out with all your friends - we are not sure if you should be kissing them all!
The spinone was rather handsome right enough.
Lovely to see you having fun with your big orange orangutan - it looked almost as big as you. You certainly had a good wrestle.
The smilebox was lovely - imagine having pizza on the roof!!!!
Probably just as well they dont allow dogs - what would happen if someone threw a stick!!!
We know you are still thinking about all your friends and so are we.
We hope things work out for everyone and that Laska is found safe and well.
In the meantime we enjoyed laughing at your post and that was very good.
Our mum felt very sad yesterday and it isnt good to be too sad for too long!!!!
Have a lovely weekend.
Martha & Bailey xxxxx

Hey Asta!

Sorry I missed you at the run -she left me at home to go to a party too, but guess what? Remember that cute bulldog pup named Idgy that was looking for a home? Well, Mommy helped place him with this family and now he's a jolly 60 lbs and named Toby! He looks like a giant scoop of chocolate chip ice cream and he purrs when you scritch him!

Have your parents heard about the Renegade Cabaret? I think Mommy sent you an email. Apparently the lights from the High Line go right into some lady's apartment and she's dried her unmentionables on the fire escape for years. So, now she has different friends who are singers come do a few numbers from the lit up fire escape! Tra lalalala!

Maybe I'll see you at the run tonight if we don't have another boomer.

Your pal,


Gus said...

Welll...when muzzer comes she will NOT go to the high line unless you are allowed!

So there

love the orangutan, lucky monkey

Daisy said...

Asta, even in the saddest of times it is important to take time to have fun and play with orange Orangutans and such.

Molly the Airedale said...

We love the pictures of you sticking out your tongue, Asta! Mom needs to get some of us being sassy too! hehehe
Your mom and dad really stay up late! Our mom and dad are in bed before most babies and kids!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Our pinkies would have slumped over if they stayed up that late hehe. They have no staying power!
Your building sounds great. It must be in a great part of Manhattan. Sorry your friends have to leave though. Maybe some nice people will take over their apartment.


Eric said...

Asta, you look adorable playing with the Orangey Tang.And I only peeked at your belly spots..they match mine,he,heee! I'm sad you're sad and am sending pawsitive thoughts. I hope it helps.

Wiry loves and kissies, Eric xxx

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

You are sooo cute with your Orangutang...I'm sure he is good company when your Mom has to go out without you...

Love the Smilebox...

Abby xxxooo

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Sure you had a great time at the run with your friends and later with your orangutan!
Your mom and dad had a nice walkie too!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

Its hard to not have fun with CUZ toys around!! Your Mom's smile is soo pretty, she must be a lot of fun to be around. Sorry you couldn't party with them Asta. We are trying to be cheerful too.

Koobuss said...

New York is such an exciting place, Kousin Asta. Too bad that you can't enjoy all of it like the humans can. At least you get to play with an orange orangutang. That's something the humans don't do. Hehehe...

Loved the pictures of you (you are such a cutie) and loved the slide show, too.

Nice job!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

pee ess Good luck to your friends who have to move.

Sir Chance-Lot said...

I hate when the humans leave me behind to....I miss you Asta. I am restless and awake tonight..maybe because of the thunder and maybe because I am just restless...kisses

Faya said...

The Oceanside Animals said...

There are way too many places out there where no dogs are allowed! At least you have your orange friend to entertain you.

Bobby said...

You had fun with your stuffy, while the humans were out. That looks a great walk they went on.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Asta that post is so lovely.. You are adorable. Sorry we are late, but the internet went down yesterday.. Aggggg.

We are thinking of all our friends too..

Happy weekend GJ xx

Pedro said...


How did you have no rain in NYC when it poured and thundered and lighteninged all day and night in the Hamptons? You're so lucky! I had to try to comfort Ziggy cause he's a big baby in thunder storms! Our swimming pool filled way up we got so much rain. Will it ever end?????


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Asta, those pictures of you are FANTASTIC!!!!

Want to see some baby pictures of Spats & Sassy...come on over!

Love, uSSSSS

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Asta -

HA! HA! HA! Mama really liked the pictures of you with your tongue hanging out.

The pictures with your orangutan were pretty funny too - but the tongue pictures are classic.

It FINALLY stopped raining and the sun is out here. Kaci and I think that was probably another reason why Mama was sad this week too - all this rain is making everything waterlogged.

Have a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Agatha and Archie said...

It is very sad around here....We are glad the sun has helped cheer you up...Let's just hope it last...Love and a squillion A+A

the many Bs said...

poor little Asta, being left out of all the fun. at least you got to go to the run and play with some friends. we would love to cheer you up with some extreme playing. we are thinking of all of our friends who need our poodle power too.


Deefor said...

Hi Asta
You look so happy seeing all your friends. My mom is from your city (a LONG time ago cause she's pretty old) so she likes to see all your great photos.

(But try not to be so sweet and kissy all the time. My mom was muttering, Why can't you be nice like that? Don't give her any ideas. I don't want to be replaced by a terrier!)

Watch out for that orangoutang.


Unknown said...

Aw, Asta - you look as cute as ever. Hope your outing and meeting doggie friends cheered you up a abit. That High Line walk looks so beautiful - it's just so unfair that doggies can't go!

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

Asta...um...could you go to Jake and JH's bloggie and talk to those Wheelies in French or Hungarian or something...they keep tellin' me we don't have a Randy View and we do...I scheduled a DATE with both of them for next Saturday...but they seem confused...

If you could just clear up this small misunderstanding, I'd be forever grateful....

Your BFF, Lacie

Pee ess...Scruffy wants to know if Hootie and Aggie um well, maybe I better text ya....

Anonymous said...

Hi Asta!!!

Mack said...

Even though you didn't get to go with Mommi and Daddy, I bet Mr. Orangutang was fun!

We sure hope you are feeling better Miss Asta. There has just been so much sadness.

TwoSpecialWires said...

There's too much to say to fit it in this little box. Ummm. We're sorry you couldn't join Mommi and Daddi, but we're glad you had some nice ways to enjoy yourself. We LOVE your lifestyle and we are VERY jealous. We can we come move in, we mean visit?
We love love love Erik Satie.... put to your pawrents pretty pictures, he put us very near la-la-land. So very nice. Just like you and your family.

Your (we're too shy to say) Jake and Fergi

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh Asta you looked like you were having a grand time with your oran-u-tang!

Shame you couldn't go on the roof or on the walk though!

I am late commenting, my Jeannie has been having a "flounce", but she is better now.

Sometimes I think she is getting more and more like Scarlett O'Hara every day.......... ;0D

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Great tongue action!!!

Our Mom rarely stays up late, but some of us go to bed when she does and some of us stay up and surf the computer or watch late night TV with Dad. It sounds like your peeps were having a good time.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Unknown said...

You have been so serious lately I'm glad you got the orange monkey friend out to play. However he had you in an unlady lake compromised position. Silly monkey! Love the tongue shots> thanks for posting the contest. I'll have to join.

Stanley said...

Astaroni LovePup!!

Of course, yours is the most gorgeous tongue I have ever seen. It is so expressive, and is very photogenic. I have many fond memories of that tongue (I'm actually blushing as I type this).

You are a doll and a half (nope, you're a DOUBLE doll, my sweetpea)! You give that mommi of yours a big goob smooch from me, okay, and take the rest that I'm sending for yourself!

Goober love & smooches,

Peanut said...

your mom and dad go to lots of parties you don't get to go to. I hope they at least always bring you back something.

LuLu and LoLLy! said...
