Looks like your dad had a nice party. Hope he had a special day.

Sassy gave bloggers a lot of smiles and good times. We are sad she is retiring but we aren't about to miss her party. It's a fun one.

Joe Stains said...

Hey Asta, we really felt like we were there, except for not being able to taste that delicious beef dish. I bet it was weird eating cake with your face on it, hehe, but what a WONDERFUL idea and so cool. We are really glad your Mommi liked that bracelet, did it remind you of our fun trip to Africa. Well, my trip was a little more fun, you guys sorta stressed out when I disappeared. :)

Joe Stains said...

Pee s. we visited your cat friends!!

Duffy said...

It sure was a great party, sissy! Everything looked beautiful. And all your Daddy's friends were really very tolerant when I checked out their dinner plates. Just wanted to make sure they had enough to eat. Hehehe.

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

OMD...was Duffy SMIRKING?? He was...oh Asta...you've taught the boy well...he does sorta fade after midnight, huh...well, he's still young...

What a magnificent party...we felt like we were there...(well, actually we were...we were a tad invisible...)

The Beef Bowling Balls was amazing...and that crusty bread was delish!!!!! Mumsie really thinks she can crock pot it cuz she's like totally lazy...

Tell Auntie Karen that the icing on that cake was amazing...I do seem to have a picture of all of you guys stuck in my beardie...thoughts on picture removal???

Need to trot over to Sassy's bloggie...

Love and kisses...and Happiest Barkday ever to your Daddi!!!!!

Love, Us!!!

Gus said...

We were there in spirit sweetie, and we had a mawvelous time.


Dexter said...

Momma is totally jelly of the way you can snuggle and be carried around by your mommi. Sigh.

I visited the CCSI. Those cats sure are smart dressers.

Oskar said...

I looks like a great party & I love the pictures of you snuggling at the end of the night.

I'm heading over to leave a message for Sassy.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Since we couldn't be there for reals, you made us feel like we were there like little critters on the wall, watching over everyone having a great time! (We loved catching a glimpse of your Mommi's paintings!) We are sooooo happy that Daddi had a special birfday with the yummy Boof Burr Gween Own and crusty bread (thanks for the recipe ... the menu is half planned for our Girl's birthday coming up!) And that cake! Wow! Somebody must be good at blow painting (unlike the purple passion party we remember from a while back!) No. Really. How'd Auntie Karen get all your faces on that cake? That was AMAZING! (We're not so sure we can duplicate next month.) What a GREAT party! We're glad we could be there in little ways ... we certainly thought about you all a lot. So ... how well do you think four or FIVE doggies would do together?? (JK)

We love you all! Rest up now! (Sorry there aren't any leftovers!)
BruvverJake and SissieFergi xxoo

Marvin said...

Happy Birthday to your Daddy! Asta.

And my Jeannie says........she thinks the two bottles of red wine were a touch too much for the recipe.

In her humble opinion, the Chef should have drunk them.
