Hi, Asta -

Congratulations on your award.
We like the picture of you playing the piano but it's hard to choose a favorite because you are so adorable.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta, you've gotta be one of the most pawsome dogs, with a most wonderful family. How many doggies get to fly on an airplane and go to Rome! We are very envious. We wanna go to Rome someday! AND we hope to be added to your list of doggies and their people that you have met. Maybe we can play a trio on the piano. Or at least four paws on one piano, with one vocalist (that'd be me, Jake.)

We're glad you received the award you did. It was great getting to know some very special things about you and your Mommi and our Daddi. (Were all three of those other wirey doggies around at the same time?)

We love you all,
Jake and Fergi

Congratulations on the award! That is cool that you have been to Rome! That is a fun photo of you in the bath tub! Monty Dog here loves his baths. In fact he is due for one!

Duke said...

We love your list and all the pictures that go along with it! Your mommi's parasol is so pretty! Hey, Asta - tell the truth - have you ever seen your mommi looking less than perfect - like in ratty old jeans and a t-shirt (like our mom wears)? Your mommi always looks so pretty and perfectly dressed!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Snowy and Crystal said...

Hello beautiful Asta, hope you are enjoying your weekend :)

Guess what, our helper just completed our info pages :) we thought that it will be a pawsome idea to let our pals learn more about us that way. We wont be adding anything new to it, but just keep it up there...our pictures in our main blog leads to it

check it out when you get the time and let us know what you think:





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

Asta...OMD...can I borrow that orange umbrella (or as we say in da Burgh; bumpershoot...) to go with my new purple sorta vintage retro hippie ensemble?????? It would look totally fabulous...it looks like a giant copy of the umbrellas I put in my smoothies....

I love that pic of ur fursibs in da car!!!!!! The expressions of each do are so different! And they say all foxy wires look alike!

It's been rainin' and rainin' here...Stanny's leggie is doin' a little better...perhaps that chopped dinosaur soup you brought was what made the difference???!!!

I can't believe they sell dinosaurs in New York...fresh yet!

Lotsa love,


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


Babystan here...um...don't I have a massage scheduled with you at midnight tonight??? Lacie made me a relaxin' smoothie...that's about the 4th one I've had today...(Stan giggles...something he rarely does....) That cream of dinosaur soup hit the spot...my leggie feels TONS better...

But Lacie is still waitin' on me hand and paw...works for me...

Swedish massage barks...

You have such a great life!
All your pictures were great - we love the painting your mom done of her previous three dogs!

Just a quick Hello for now.
We missed you

I biggified the picture in the hope that Gail will play me the Terrier Anthem. (We have a piano and I am the only creature in the whole world who enjoys being in the same room when she is playing...)
Cheers, H.

Eric said...

Fab award Asta, woof you lots too! That was a terrifuc rendition of the Terrier Anthem Asta. I barked along cos I seem to have forgotten the words. Think Gus could remind me?

Wiry loves and kisses, Eric xxxxxxxxxxx

I loved your pictures, Asta! Except the one of you taking a bath because you look so sad. Wow, you were such a lucky pup to get to travel to Italy! And you know how to play piano. That's very impressive!
