LON GISLAND ADVENTOOWE DAY1

I had a sowt of mini summew vacation this weekend
Some good fwiends have a house on LonGisland and invited us, so we took the twain out of the city satuwday and came back today

Hewe's what happened the fiwst day

it was a glowious , pawfect sunny day..not too wawm ow hoomid and I went out on the lawn as soon as we got thewe

the gwass goes all the way to the watew whewe the boats awe.I was sowt of mad cause I was tied up

that's the house whewe we stayed fwom the watew...see, thewe is no fence anywhewe


I whined and put on my sweetest face , telling my pawents that I just had to have fweedom to wun and play

video

It all went well fow a while...fweedom!!!!!!!!!

video

I wan and played ball and wan some mowe.............

Then I got into BIG twouble!!!
I wan out on the side of the house wight into the stweet
Mommi just about had a heawty attack
I only got about a block away befowe about fouw hoomans caught me and bwought me back(...I don't know what all the scweeming was fow..I just wanted to go adventoowing)

aftew that I was tied up weal tight


I bowwowed Daddi's hat to pwotect me fwom too much sun
Mommi wouldn't let me out of hew sight..I had to sit and wead wif hew

and look at flowews
not neawly as much fun as my gweat escape

much latew I guess she fowgave me, cause she took me out on the piew and was smiley again

It got stowmy in the evening, so we went in to eat dinnew

I had to inspect these weiwd owange things they wewe cooking

I couldn't believe Mommi was going to eat a giant owange bug and Tannew's cown shank

It had these long thingies hanging off of it and I licked it twying to see if it would attack, but it just tickled
so I decided to wisk tasting it...hmmmmmmm, niammmmmm, not at all bad..mowe pleez

I checked the bag , but thewe was none left...why is it that just when I taste something new and want mowe..it's ovew. I think that's unfaiw...a tantalizing taste, and back to kibble,hwmpffffff

by then it was time fow sneep..it had been an exciting day. Doowing my befowe bed walk..I saw the moon..It was an owange ball in the sky wif an even mowe owange tail in the watew..
(I thought it was sweet of LonGisland to colow it fow me while I was thewe)
I twied to get a pictoowe, but it's not to cleaw..you'll just have to take my wowd fow it.



I missed you all and will ty to come visit evewyone tomowwow. Wednesday I'll show you some pictoowes fwom Mywna and Gilbewt's twins Chwistening, and then I'll have the west of my LonGisland adventoowe

Asta - what a glorious header! We would have forgotten it's Bastille Day tomorrow.... we are going to have to play the French tapes, hahahahahahahaha!
You have such great adventures - and your Mom looks like she is better with her neck??? We sure hope so!

chicamom85 said...

Asta, I love your new header, you look so regal. Wow you had quite an adventure. My Mom got upset just reading it. I don't get why they get so worried, we will come back eventually. I am sorry you had to get tied up again but it looks like you were forgiven. Those big bugs look so weird. Be careful. It was funny watching you run on the video.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Inky and Molly said...

Hey Tiger. Sounds like you had a blll escaping from the pinkies. We don't know why they stress so much about that either. Nothing is ever going to happen to us, is it?

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Hi Asta

Your trip to Lon Gisland looks lovely. We were worried when we read the bit about you running onto the road but then we remembered you are a city girl and must be traffic aware!

Look forward to reading about the rest of your trip. Stay safe.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Another great trip. I think your Daddi's hat really suits you. Oh to live in a climate where sun protection was necessary! (It rained here ALL Sunday)
As for the orange bug thing, I've never tried one of those but I note that Gail is salivating in an an almost dog-like way, just looking at the picture...
Cheers! H.

Liffey said...

Is that Lobster Asta- it looks kinda crunchy!!

Hope you are following the sun smart policy- hat, sunscreen and stay in the shade.

Liffey's licks t you

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom says she can only imagine how your mommi must have had a heart attack when you ran into the road! We're glad they got you back safe and sound, Asta, even if you did have to read instead of play! UGH!
Autumn is still deciding what to wear for the Christening tomorrow!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Bae Bae said...

That sure sounds like a fun vacation (Other then you running on the street part)
You look cool in hat!

~ Bae

Colin Harries said...

Oh Asta...LUCKY those bad cars on the road didn't get you. My mum and dad say they are proud of me for learning to walk without a lead (most of the time when we're not close to a road)...but my mum also has heart attacks if I'm out of reach for more than 5 seconds...oh well, I guess it's the price of being so LUVVED - there are many others out there who are on the street alone 'cos their mums and dads don't care about them. As I'm in Emerald, in Central Queensland in Australia in our caravan at the moment, Long Island sounds very exotic to me and looks beautiful...love from Colin Harries xx

Mango said...

Such adventures! Careful giving your mom heart attacks. She is ancient like mine and subsequently quite fragile I suppose.

Long Island gave you super zoomies! Must be an exciting place.

I am not sure what those giant red insects were. I think you should leave those to the humans.

Slobbers,
Mango

Rosie said...

Hi Asta, Looks like a great trip! and I love the new blog look!

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

What a great place...

Looks like it was the week for escaping...

Checkers went exploring...I jumped thru the screen...& you went looking for fun on LonGisland...I don't know why the humans get all upset when we are just looking for a little adventure...

My Mom says she is going to LonGisland in September...

She is going to visit my human brother who lives there & they are going to a show & everything...But she is leaving me home...

Not fair, I say...

Abby xxxooo

Hi, Asta -

We enjoyed your adventures on Lon Gisland. Mama also gets upset when I (Hershey) run into the street. Kaci and I are glad that you were not in trouble for long.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Asta,

Our Mom knows the kind of heart attacks your Mom was probably having when you decided to go on your little adventure. But reading and sitting on the pier looked restful.

Hooomans scare easy. We have to be careful with them.

XOXO

Gus said...

What a lovely weekend! we hope you got some rest after your long run. I have found it makes folks appreciate you more, but the first couple of hours are a bit tense.

Don't do it again, OK?

Hollie and Janie said...

Asta,
Your headers are always so fabulous! I bet you did scare your poor mommi to death when you made a break for it and ran! We can't do that to our mommmies! Long Island looks like such a beautiful place!
Love you,
Janie

Jake of Florida said...

Since Just Harry just gave mom and dad a scare the other night by running off after that very loud firecracker went off right under our noses -- we know just how your mommi felt when you ran off -- especially into the street.

Little urbanista, you shouldn't scare your mommi and daddi like that. Trust us, we know!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We know exactly what the big deal was with you running off! Our mom has a heart attack when she can't find one of us! We are usually in the fenced yard or hiding in a room with the door shut, but it scares the you-know-what out of her anyway! We're glad those hoomans found you and that you had such a great weekend!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Agatha and Archie said...

Happy Bastille Day!! We can not tell a lie...when we read you went into the street all 3 of us(me and ARch and PL2 ) fainted....dead away.....then we all woke up the same time and read of the happy ending..... PL2 said we are all very cheeky puppies......we don't know what that means but.....The orange thing looks quite intriguing......We are glad you all had a lovely time(except that one part) Love A+A

Pedro said...

Asta,

Looks like you had a great weekend on the Island! The weather sure has been great. My mom's niece and her husband came up for a visit from Texas and they loved the cool weather we've been having.

Pedro

Lucia said...

Ciao bella Asta!!

A weekend on LonGisland! What fun!! Did you wear your Topsiders while you were there? They make such a delightful squeaky sound!!

About your dash toward the street, I am very glad you are ok, dolce amica. I slipped my collar during last night's walkies and la mia ragazza almost had a canary. (Mmmm .... poultry....) I didn't go anywhere, honest, but she was practically His Terrier Call. Hoomans!! Santa vacca, get a grip already!!

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Pearl said...

Oh Asta, what a fun time with your family and friends!

Now, I know you were just looking for an innocent adventure when you ran off... but Asta, don't do it again ok? The world away from our mommi's and daddi's is scary.

Can't wait for pics from the Christening!!!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello asta its dennis the vizsla dog hay my mama claims that she is frum the mithical land of lawn guyland herself wow small wurld huh??? altho i dont think the part of lawn guyland wot she is frum luks like that!!! ok bye

Daisy said...

What a beautiful place for a mini-vacation! It looks like you had loads of fun there. Asta, as your friend, I must tell you that it was Wrong of you to run off like that. I hope you learned a good lesson, because I hope you do not try that again!

Fred said...

That first picture of you and your mom is loverly! Meanwhile, I understand too well the pull of adventure! Our parents don't. (Glad you're safe and sound, though.) ;)

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've been anxiously awaiting your LonGisland adventures stories. It made us wag with happiness to wake up to them this morning! What a great place to visit and huge place to run! We're so glad that it all turned out with a happy ending when you ran off... we know how upset our Moma and Girl would have been (Nina even has dreams about me - Jake - running off), but it seems everyone recovered quickly and had a good rest of the evening.

How kind and thoughtful of Daddi sharing his hat with you! You know it's important to protect tender sensitive skin. Sunburns can ruin a nice weekend, let alone damage the skin. By the way... my - Fergi - speckles are NOT freckles from sun damage. I was born that way. I'm taking good care to not get over-exposed when I'm in the sun.

That orange thingees that Mommi and Daddi and their friends ate (and you tasted) reminded us of a orange and yellow and black thingee that our Awntie took on her weekend trip to visit our Uncle. We want her to blog about the trip. She got some great pictures and we were disappointed we missed out on the adventure.

But this isn't about us... it's about YOU! And your adveture! And we are looking forward to seeing and learning more!

We hope the Christening goes as beautifully as we expect it to. We are hoping the wee ones wear little white christening gowns. We all think they are so sweet.

Welcome back! We missed you!
Love to you and your Mommi and our Daddi
Miss Fergi, Jake and our people :)

The Furry Kids said...

Bummer about your great escape. That happens to me, too. Whenever I go off leash, I just run run run! Then I get in trouble... :(

Those orange things look yummy!

Your pal,
Titus

Thoughts said...

Hi Asta!

My, what an adventure you had! what a beautiful place you went to. At least you got to run around free for a little while, right? We think those orange creatures are weird looking but we have never tasted one. We'll take your word for it that its tasty!

Woofs and wags,
Benson and Gibson

Koobuss said...

Oh boy, Kousin Asta,

What a great time you must have had running loose and free like that! That is something we can only dream about.

You are staying at a lovely place. Water, docks, decks, lobster, etc. That is what summer is all about. Don't you wish it could last forever?

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Do NOT do that again!

Your mommi khan't take those kinds of frolikhs!

PeeEssWoo: Khan I please have some lobster with my khake?!?

Stanley said...

Sweetpea Astaroni!

You were in HEAVEN running around and zooming to your adventurous escape. My girl is the same way about me and cars. She doesn't seem to realize I know how to take care of myself. Watching the video of you running like the wind... I was right there running with you.

Looks like you had some time to relax and hang with mommi and try new alien-looking food. Glad your daddi let you borrow his hat to protect your gorgeous pink skin!

Did you get any more freckles from the sun? I'll have to inspect your belly for them next time I see you.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Petra said...

What an adventure you had, Asta, in such a beautiful place!

You know what? I like little black bugs, so I think I'd like that big orange one, too. I'm proud of you for tasting it.

Deefor said...

Hi Asta
Too bad you got in trouble. That's how Arrow is. He likes to wander around. He comes back (when he's ready) but he doesn't understand about cars so he's NEVER loose anymore outside the doggie park. (Poor guy) But you looked like you had a great time. Good thing you're ok. Maybe it's a terrier thing.

Deefor

p.s. I never tasted a big red bug!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Asta, that was quite a run that you had. we love seeing you run all over the yard, but then going into the street and going a whole block away sounds very scary (for your mommi!).

that's a very pretty house and yard where you got to visit. we're glad you had a mini-vacation and that your mommi forgave you for exploring.

woofs.

bbes tribe said...

Hey Asta, What an adventure. It was a beaiutifil place. We know your Mom must have been really scared. So glad you didn't get hurt. But it does feel good to run free doesn't it?
Woofs

Asta...Véronique est comme ta Mamy. Mais je crois qu'elles ont raison.
C'est très beau comme endroit. J'espère que tu iras nager.
Bisous, Faya

Martha Basset said...

Oh Asta
Our mum is busy with work and we are falling behind with our blogging buddies!
We loved your pictures and your videos - it was great to see you running about.
You were very bad of course to run out onto the street. We thought it was just bassets who didn't have good recall!!
We wish you could come play with us and all us girls could have fun!
We would need to find a good safe place first of all.
We hope your mommi has recovered - that was a fright!!
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxx
ps we have never been on a train!!!

Martha Basset said...

PS we just loved the Header!!!

pughy said...

Oh Asta you could have been hurt, no wonder your mum was worried..

Please be careful.

Love the header...


Hugs GJ xx

Eric said...

Woah Asta, I could read your little mind watching that first video and just knew you were to go off on a zoomer!! You are VERY naughty, never desert your walking dinner bowl that's my motto. And going into the street???? Crickey. WHAT were you thinking? Hope you apologised to your leggeds and promised never to do that again. You frightened me so dog know's about the leggededs.Let's hope your Mommi and Daddies hearts have returned back to their rightful places now instead of being in their mouths!!!

Look after that beautiful orange ball in the sky instead. OK?

Worried wirey lovies and kissies, Eric xxxxx

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Asta,

Ooh - I love this post!! So many fun things to share with you!

I'm glad you didn't get hurt or lost in your Great Escape - but your poor humans! They must have been frantic! My humans sometimes play this game with me when we're out walking where if I walk off ahead, they suddenly run off and hide somewhere so when I turn back, I can't see them! Oooh - then I really panic! And I start running like mad, looking for them everywhere...my trainer told them to do this to help teach me never to go far from them and always keep an eye on them and to follow them - rather than then following me - but I think it's a bit of a mean game, to tell you the truth! But anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I know how your humans must feel - that awful scary panicky feeling - so don't feel too annoyed that they tied you up, Asta!

I did love to watch you running around - you looked so sweet!

And WOW! Those big orange bug things were scary! I would have been afraid to go near them, never mind taste them!

What a beautiful place to stay - you are such a lucky pup! Can't wait for Part 2 of your adventures!!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
ps. love your new header picture!!!

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

Asta...um..why do you look like George Washington in a pair of red boxers??? Hmm....

I'm thinkin' your great escape was the best yet...don't you love to get the peeps all worked up...then they are so glad to see ya again they give ya extra treats....

That scary sea monster ur mommi was eatin' looked like a giant version of a stuffie I have...did Mommi pull all the stuffin' outta it with her teeth? Did you have to sew it back up again??? Sheeshch...and they yell at us for destuffin' stuff....

Hoomans...can't live with em...can't live without em...

So...hear ya had some issues with the tea ya drank...honestly Asta...even I know to use a glass for that stuff...it's powerful...especially when Lacie makes it...

Love ya lots...

Your brother Scruffy

Pee ess...Lacie woulda written but she's tweezin' her brows...girls...

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Wow, Long Island looks so pretty! And that orange bug thing looks awesome too...you're so lucky you got to taste some of it! Oh, and I love your new blog header...so cool! I wish I could dress up like that...*wink*

What a wonderful trip to long island? I don't know why you can't explore the area on your own.. meet the neighbors. Well at least you got lobster out of it. I've never had it.. they look scary.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Ohhh Asta... what a lovely place!!
Hmm.. both Hershey and I speak from experience about this ok, so you've gotto believe us. Running away from your hoomans and onto the road is something that causes great distress to the hooomans. We are not sure why but we do know that it makes the hooman/s super duper upset and it generally results in some form of 'jail' afterwards.. please please do not attempt that again!!
That organey thingy looks fun to play with... oh I didn't know that your mom likes Tanner's corn cob too. I will remember to send her one for her birthday.. heehee...

Have fun!

The OP Pack said...

What a beautiful place for a relaxing weekend - sure looks like a lot of fun!!! But Asta, please be careful. If they let you off leash, don't run out in the street - bad stuff happens there.

woo, the OP Pack

The videos showed your adventurous spirit. So fun to watch. Glad you didn't get hurt by a car when you ran off. Your poor mommy.

Wonderful pictures!!!

Asta, what a totally pawesome adventure so far! I especially like when you got to inspect the giant orange bug.

Bogart said...

Miss Asta, my mama says that you've got to be careful out there on the Gisland!!!! (mama used to live there, so she said it's ok to say that) :)

Much love,

Joe Stains said...

omdog Asta thank goodness you did not get hit or get too far away! We NEVER listen so we can't be off the leash either. Looks like the rest of the time was a whole lot of fun! I am glad you are enjoying yourself, I hope your Mom watched the instructional video from Tanner on how to eat that corn!
