Yummy wally melon! It's been a while since we've had them too...I wonder if they're in season this time around. Hope your Mom's feeling much better now, Asta! Give her lots of kisses from us, will you? *wink*


Cheyenne -Millie said...

Oh Asta! we hope that your mom starts feeling better! You are so good to give her wet cloths!

That friend Duffy is very handsome! Happy birthday to Duffy!

About the music. don't be embarrassed .... when we read what you wrote about music we wondered what you meant. And then mom went back to see if we had music! Mom thought maybe it magically appeared!

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Yet another reason why you and your Mommi MUST come and visit us here in the north of Scotland, where 75 degrees Fahrenheit constitutes a heat wave....
I see what you mean about the family spelling (I couldn't help but notice that Gail actually laughed out loud when you said Mommi was 'coma toes', which I personally thought was very mean of her).
Cheers, H.

Sally said...

Hi Asta,
the melon is good? I destroy only the shell of a melon.

Nicce wuuuh

Molly the Airedale said...

You are a very patient girl while your daddi is deciding to feed you watermelon, Asta!
Happy belated birthday to Duffy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh we are so sorry to hear your Mama is not well Asta.

My J cannot take the heat either, so she has every sympathy.

I too, am late getting around the blogs, so sorry if I have not been commenting since I came back.

Your new blog design is very cooling and pleasing to the eye!

lotsaluv and get well licks from Marvin xxxxx

And get well wishes from Jeannie too xxxxx

Noah the Airedale said...

First of all we'd like to wish Duffy a very happy first birthday.
Secondly, we hope your mummy is feeling better. The heat really is a pain in the butt. Please pass some aire-zen onto your mum Asta.
Enjoy your wally melon.

We loves watermelon too. We hopes your Mommy is feeling better. Thankfully we are having a cool snap and it feels wonderful. We don't like heat either. Paws crossed your Mommy feels better soon. ~S,S,C & F

Mack said...

We just hope the wally melon makes mommi feel better!

Dexter said...

It cooled off a little here last night so maybe it cooled off for you and mommi is feeling better. Everybody here (well, except for pee-wee) suffers awful in the heat.


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Asta....you like watermelon??? Mommy does too!!!

Your vacation pictures are just fab!!!!

We have missed visiting with you!!!

Love, uSSSSS

Daisy said...

Asta, my brother Harley LOVES watermelon! We are planning to show watermelon pictures tomorrow!

Gus said...

Happy Barkday to Duffy. We remember when YOU had a first birthday! You were a cutie then, and you are a bootiful doggie now.

We hope Mommi feels better soon. Hate for heat must be a hooman female thingy. Our muzzer curls up in a corner when it gets too hot. Better here than Azrizona, but we still miss her when she is "on retreat"

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Yummy water melon!! We love it.

Please take good care of Mommi - she needs you now. We know you are a wonderful nurse. If you need help, Lilly will come over and help you care for Mommi - she's a great nurse too.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

ScrapsofMe said...

oh Asta-lischious! You gots some wally mellon! nummy. Sorry to hear yer Momi is sufferin' from the heat. SHE is sufferin' after taking me on the hike from heck Sunday. Said something about hot flashies coming back. Rips clothes off suddenly. SHE turned the AC down reallllllly low and all the overhead fans on high. Me n Puffers are sleeping in tight little balls trying to keep our tootsies warm and the Mr. is wearing a sweatshirt.

It will be lovely fall soon in NYC. And the nights will be cooler soon. Just keep yer Momi cool and only let her out at night.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta. We must come visit you! We don't ever get wallymelon CUZ MOMA DOESN'T LIKE IT so she never buys it! Imagine! The ONLY thing Moma doesn't like to eat, and it's something that appears to be heavenly. So red and juicy and crisp. Hrmph!

Say... did we notice a tiny martini around your neck?

And one last thing.... just HOW do you manage to have such a beautiful shiny, moist nose? Maybe it's the heat and humidity? Or do you have some special nose lotion? Ours have never looked so beautiful.

We hope AmiMommi is feeling better. You and Daddi do your best to keep her cool and comfy.

Your Sissie Fergi and Bruvver Jake

The Florida Furkids said...

That watermelon looks very yummy. We've never tried it - maybe Mom will let us try some this week.

Kelly said...

Oh Asta, wally-melon is the perfect cure for heat exhaustion! Keep it comin'! With that sweet face of yours, you could probably get all the wallymelon you wanted at my house!! :)

Happy birthday Duffy!

Unknown said...

Hmm, I think Mommi's busy pointing a telescope over at The Standard hotel windows and that's what's getting her all hot and bothered! hehehehe!

Perhaps I'll get Duffy a dictionary for a belated birthday present...

Your pal,


Ziggy Stardust said...

Hi Asta, I hope your Mommy feels lots better, you take good care of her. I am glad that you got wally melon, I would like it, but for some reason, it doesn't like me. I don't get to have it anymore. Help Mommy rest.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Fred said...

Your poor mommy! Take good care of her!

Moco said...

We love Wally melon and get it often at our house. The crazy old bat doesn't care for the heat either. She says that it is a good thing that she works at night when it is cooler. Don't let mommi wilt or melt away.

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

Hope your mommy is doing better - our mommy hates the heat too

mmnn watermelon what a lucky pup

Happy belated Birthday to Duffy!
That watermelon looks super yummy.
We hope your mom feels better soon. She should - she's got the best nurse ever. :)


Thoughts said...

Hi asta,

We LOVE wally melons too! we think its the bestest summer treat there is!! Its been really hot here too, so much so that we go out and laze in the sun for 6 minutes then want to go back into the Air conditioning.

Wags and woofs,
Benson and Gibson

Koobuss said...

Hi Kousin Asta,

That wallymelon looks so good. I could take a bite of it right off your bloggie.

I really like your haircut. Your fur looks so nice and smooth. How do you get it that way? Do you use some sort of special conditioner, or something?

Happy First Barkday to sweet little Duffy! He sure is a cutie. Pretty soon he'll be chasing all the girls away, or not. Hehehe... Since I'm your kousin, and he's your bruvver, I am his kousin, too? These things confoose me.

Hope your Mommi is feeling better soon. We send her our best wishes. Hopes she gets some relief soon. It's supposed to cool off in a couple of days, so that should help her a lot.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

The WriggleButts said...

Aww.. Your poor mommie! We keep our paws crossed that she's feeling better soon! And that wally melon looks yummy!

Joe Stains said...

We certainly hope it cools off, the heat can certainly do something folks who aren't used to it. We have one of those cool squiddy things! Tanner ripped all the legs off!

The Black and Tans. said...

Hello Asta

We do hope your Mommi feels better soon, the heat can leave the hoomans feeling like limp lettuce so just as well you are there to supervise the wally melon.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh that looks so yummy.. We aren't to keen on wally mellon but now cantaloupe that is awesome stuff..

Hi, Asta -

First we missed Huskee's birthday and now we miss Duffy's?!? Happy Belated Birthday to him.

You look like you are really enjoying the watermelon. We are sorry to read that your Mommi is not feeling well. Mama hates the heat too so she can sympathize with your Mommi.

Love -

We don't usually eat wallymelon, but we do have ordinary melon most days for breakfast. Not that I get enough so I share your pain.
