The Fiwst day of my twip to Lake Seneca

The stawt of my faboolous week of chillaxing..in the caw weady to go

blue skies and lush gween evewywhewe on the woad

we stopped fow gas and it was hot

but then we awwived and it was heaven!!!

we walked down to see the dock..I made a video of it fow you

the watew looks icky wight hewe cause the wind shifted and bwought all the gwassy stuff, but on the othew side it was cleaw and bootiful

the wiwe on the twees was still thewe( I discovewed it two yeaws ago when I was thewe)
It's weally cool, cause I can be safely tied to it and still wun awound and chase the ball

The pwopewty is 80 acwes big wif 800 feets of watewfwont, so my pawents don't think it's a good idea to let me wun totally fwee

Dodgew, the big bootiful doggie who lives hewe, and Bobo, his cousin who comes and stays all the time awe good about staying neaw theiw pawents, but ummmm, being a city kid, I'm not gweat at coming and being a tewwiew, I'm gweat at explowing and sticking my nose evewywhewe.
Thewe awe even coyotes on the pwopewty in the woods, so Mommi is too scawed to let me wun fwee

being tied up cewtainly didn't stop me fwom having fun

I could play ball fuwwevew, heheheh

auntie Ginnie and Eliabef wigged up gates fow the big deck, so I could wun in and out of the hose whewe I stayed and play and be pawt of the fun always

I helped Mommi shuck cowns

hewe is a little smilebox to get you in the mood

Your movie showed up perfectly!! the lake looks so relaxing and serene, but I would never ever go in it. You walk so nicely on the leash, mom is jealous!! I bet you slept REALLY well after swimming and all the walkies in the nice air. We like to sniff the air a lot like you did in the movie!!

Sally said...

Hi Asta,

Dexter said...

Oh Miss Asta! I never before noticed how nice and symmetrical your black spot is around your tail. Lovely!

Your mommi has such a sweet voice. I wish mine talked like that. She has permanent gruff voice from spending too much time in whatchacall business meetings.

Enjoy yourself and sniff those nice smells for me.


Teddy said...

What a wonderful place for a vacation!! (Mom says the lake reminds her of where Grandma grew up in Canada, but she hopes your water isn't quite that cold.)

I hope you'll show us some videos of you swimming in the lake. Aren't vacations the best?


Gus said...

Another great smilebox, with lots of pictures of Miss Asta. We like the one with you and your daddy napping. Oh and as always, the food looks Mawvelous.

What a beautiful place for a getaway - so peaceful and serene. Please be careful of those coyotes - they can be very sneaky critters. Enjoy your stay.

Woos, the OP Pack

Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

Deefor said...

Really nice pictures. That looks like a perfect place for a vacation. My humans always worry about coyotes too. Specially cause I'm kinda small. Relax and have fun.

ScrapsofMe said...

That water looks so cool and refreshing....I wish I was there! And you got yer own BURGER...Puffers and me are sooo jalous....we don't get foodies on car trips. Just waters and maybe a snackie. SHE doesn't like to clean up after car sickies. Be they canine or hoomine. Love the smilieboxiethingy with the collage pages....yu r soooo talented!
Welcome home, we all missed you.

Hollie and Janie said...

Oh, Asta!
That place looks like heaven! I bet you had so much fun running about, even if you were tethered to the line! Better safe than sorry with a terrier!! I can't wait to see more pics! Mama is so envious of the Goob shirt!

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Looks like you had a brilliant time down by the lake. I loved the video. We terriers just aren't meant to walk to heel are we? I mean, not when there's so much interesting stuff to investigate.
Cheers, H.

Ruby Bleu said...

That looks like the start of a very nice vacation!!! My Mom prolly wouldn't let me be free either...when we visit lake tater tahoe I have to be tied up too! I can't wait to hear about the rest of your adventures!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Randi said...

Aww Asta! What a wonderful vacation! & I just LOVE your mommi's Goober shirt! Are they available at all major dept. stores like Barneys?

I'm so happy you are still blogging...I need to whip my mom/secretary into shape & get me to post more than just once a week...silly secretary.

Love & Licks,

Tiger Lily said...

Wow! Your vacation looks and sounds wonderful! My Mom went to the Finger Lakes this summer too while my Daddy stayed home with us. She spent most of her time on Otisco Lake (where they lived before they moved to NM) but she did not get very many pictures because of rain.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

What a wonderful trip you had!! We loved seeing all of your pictures.

Being terriers, we know well that we have to be on the leash all the time. Mom is trying to teach Lilly instant recall now, but she's doing it at about 75%, but if she sees a butterfly, she's off and running.

Eric said...

Asta sweetpea! Was wicked to go walkies with you following your wig, wagging down to the boathouse. Know what your tail spot is almost the same as mine!!

The lake and surrounds are picture perfect. But the view following your tail was pretty good too heheee!!!Your Mom was an excellent not so common tater on your video.But pooey not all the smile box would load. Not even when I grrrrd.

Wiry lovies and kissies Eric xxxxxxxxxxx

Clive said...

Sassy Kat said...

Agatha and Archie said...

Well what a lovely movie.As for the smilebox?Once again he is at it..He got a straw hat from somewhere and he is dancing up and down the hall with a drink in his hand.....geesh....He is really too easly influenced by everyone's music on their bloggie..Love and kisses A+A

Inky and Molly said...

Oh that looks like a fun place to play. We suggested we should all go there together one time but the Pinkie reckons you guys are too far away...Is that true??

The Oceanside Animals said...

That looks like a great place, Asta. We used to live out that way and it's beautiful country!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...
