It looks like you had a wonderful time, and we've enjoyed seeing pictures ... they take us back to when we lived in New York!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

You are definately the cutest mermaid we've ever seen! (For some reason the second smilebox wouldn't show us any photos.) What a lovely time you must have had on your vacation. You are quite the traveler Asta!

Mack said...

You look so sad in that pic! But your Mommi and Daddi go on lots of vacations with you, so I'm sure it won't be very long until you get to go somewhere beautiful again!


TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta, we could look at the swimming pictures of you FUREVER! You look so relaxed and elegant in the water. We can imagine that hardly a sound could be heard as you paddled along. We've really really enjoyed all your videos and photos and Smileboxes of your vacation. It looks like you had a truly wonderful time with your Mommi and Daddi and all your friends. The views are beautiful and the food looks scrumptious! That's what vacations should be like.

Now... rest up. And treasure the memories.

I went on vacation to my aunt isis's house. she had a pool. I RAN AWAY! -ben

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Your vacation looked like so much fun. I wish I could swim like you. I only had a pool to watch. A whole lake, and a swimming coach. I am envious of you. What a lucky doggie girl you are.
Sally Ann

Koobuss said...

Oh kousin Asta,

No wonder you hated to leave. Your last Smilebox almost made me cry, it was so touching. And that sunset picture is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. I love it.

The only good part about leaving the lake is that you were going to da 'Burgh to visit your buddies there. And that was fun, too.

Well, kousin Asta, summer's almost over. All we have left now are our memories and our dreams.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Hoover said...

Hey Asta,

I love the smile boxes. I think you really are part mermaid!

It looks like you had a very nice vacation. You seem to fit in the country as well as you do the city.

You should come show me how to swim in the pool sometime.

Teddy said...

Asta, I loved seeing you in the lake, what a nice vacation. I know it is sad to leave, but I like coming back home sometimes too, back to my own house and yard. I love all the smiley box pictures, you are so pretty.

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Thank you so much for telling us all about your holiday and showing us such a beautiful part of the world. You know I think Gail is very stupid because she claims to have travelled all over the USA, yet she missed out Lake Seneca. But we do have a recipe book from Ithaca on our shelf. It's called 'Moosewood' which sounds promising, but the recipes aren't very interesting - not enough meat..
Cheers, H.

Martha said...

Hi Asta
The very best vacations are those where you are sad to leave.
You had a wonderful time - that is easy to see from the super pics and great smileboxes.
Thanks for sharing your happy times - we all need to see those!!!
Your new header pic is just perfect for your new blog background.
love you lots

Dexter said...

I am sure it is nice to be home again at least a little bit, but you will miss your pals. Not sure what was going on in that movie.


Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I so get why you were sad to leave, but it sure be nice to have you back with us.
~lickies, Ludo

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

No wonder you felt so sad to leave...I'd feel the exact same way too! What a lovely and super fun trip you had! Thanks for sharing your photos with us, and I hope the weather will be better soon (it's very hot here too...>.<")


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

Asta...that last pic is incredible...omd, what a cool sunset!!!!!

The first pic is just an X on our blog...sniff...

You did look a little dee pressed in those photos...what a pawsitively bootiful place you visited...

Um...Gilbert fainted...he's back from the wain forest...forgot some clothes here and he um read our bloggie and Scruffy's STOOPID comment bout how miserable he looks and how he looks just like me and now blogland thinks he really is miserable and is sending him cookies even though he is breath-takingly happy with Myrna and the twins and he's now really worried that Myrna is going to kill him or at least remove his wheels and he um FAINTED.

It was all Scruffy's fault too for even bringing it up that that pic of me getting hosed might look a tiny bit like the usual expression on Gilbert's face...

Honestly, Asta...can you 'splain all of this to Myrna??? I'm outta breath...


The Florida Furkids said...

Thanks for sharing those pictures. It's always hard to go home after a great vacation. We really liked those Smileboxes too!
