Lon Gisland day twoo

The next day stawted wif pawfect weathew, and I was weady wif my tennis ball I asked if I could take it in the watew and go swimming.....off leash!!!

The watew was lovely ..wawm like a baf tub

unfowtoonately I swallowed half the bay and lots of slimey gween stuff
(I was fowced to take a showew to wash off all the muck)
(my BFF Lacie said That isn't the way to dwink LonGisland Ice Tea, hahahaha as if!)
I spent the next thwee houws thwowing up intewmittently and shaking..anothew scawe fow Mommi and Daddi

aftew my tummie got all empty, I stopped shaking and went to sneep at Mommi's feet.
I didn't eat the west of the day, and latew went into the bedwoom and cuwled up on the bed.
Next mowning I was totally fine and wagging my tail and wanting to play , but I wasn't allowed in the watew again

I put togethew smilebox so you can see mowe of my pictoowes

what a wonderful trip--- minus the vomit and shaking. And running into the road.

If your bean is anything like our mom bean.... she'd have lost her mind by now!

Sweetpea FuzzButt!

Thank Myrna & Gilbert for me for inviting Stella & I to the christening. Romy and Bertie are bootiful (like their parents), and it's always fun to celebrate the happiness of my family.

I'm sorry the bay gave you a tummy ache (naughty bay), but I'm glad you pumped your stomach out yourself and were able to get to sleep after you felt better. Looks like you always have fun when you go to Long Island!

My girl is SO lazy that she hasn't taken any photos of me or Stella for almost 2 weeks. Can you believe it? We need to give her a nice kick in the bootay!

Goober love & smooches always,

Gus said...

Oh my! We hope you are feeling better and are not tempted to drink green slime again. Great smiley box as usual.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Oh poor sweetheart, all that nasty water. I dont like water and would not have gone in. yuk.

I am so glad you are all fine now..

Hugs GJ xx

Hi Asta
Have you noticed how often it's things that one enjoys most that seem to make one ill? No I'm not talking about whisky...But that bone I spent all yesterday chewing. My tummy really hurt in the evening (and still a bit this morning)
Cheers, Gail.
PS The smile box does what it says on the can!

ScrapsofMe said...

Hi Asta....I hope you are feeling much better. Its difficult to chase a ball in the water and not consume half the bay! The number 1 rule when traveling is never drink the local water. Drink the Lon Gisland Tea instead Now that you are home, drink lots of fresh water to flush out the salt. Maybe you could score some wally mellon and bannana treats? woofy kisses and butt sniffs...Bonnie

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

silly doggies oyu arent suppose to drink that water - you have to be more careful

happy to hear you are doing better

Kelly said...

Oh Asta, what lovely pictures! Except for the ones when you had a sickie tummy!

Those roasted potatoes made my drool a little!

I am so glad you had a fun time in Long Island! I would love to go there sometime!!

Hollie and Janie said...

Bless your heart, Asta! I'm glad you are feeling better! You better stay away from long island iced tea and stick with cosmos!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta, we're sorry the swim in the bay made your tummy get upset, but we're confident that the good memories of the swim will eventually replace the ones of the icky feeling afterwards. We LOVE your waves as your pretty coat dried ... such pretty natural curl.

Your Smilebox photos were so lovely. All of them. We noticed the two-leggededs pale pink drinks (Moma said "yum!"). Were they frosty copies of your own pink cocktail?

What a wonderful time it appears you had. That makes us happy! Thanks for sharing it. Selfishly, it gives us new ideas for future adventures of our own!

Mack said...

When my mom would take her Sumi to the beach he used to swallow lots of nasty water too. And puke it back out immediately.

That salt water is nasty! Great for swimming but not for drinking. I guess you found out the hard way!


Daisy said...

It looks like lots of fun swimming with your tennis ball, but I am very sorry that it made you have a sick tummy.

Poor Asta - that wasn't very nice - kind of took the fun out of the swim! I'm not surprised you weren't allowed back in again!

We say,keep the leash on and run a at the run and swim in the little blue pool....PL2 says ( she says it to us all the time) you can take the dog out of the city but ya can't take the city out of the dog.....Isn't she like a Zen master?? Love A+A

Loved your slideshow! It was great!! Isn't summer just wonderful!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
