The Flat Adventoowe begins

As you might know,
I , (flat Asta) have been away fow a while now
I went to Boston in Mommi's suitcase cause she was going to go meet wif a bunch of my fwiends pawents and I didn't want to be left out

I awwived at Agatha and Awchie's house..it's boootiful
I can hawdly wait to see them

the hoomans went nuts when they saw A&A, and those poow kids had to do all sowts of twicks to please them (fwankly , I think it's unfaiw..we just wanted to catch up on gossip and play, but you have to hoomow the hoomoms)

Agatha is vewy sewious about the sanctitiy of hew pwivate bomb sheltew..of couwse , she invited us giwls in gwaciously

You have to give Awchie cwedit fow nevew giving up..twying ovew and ovew to entew

(he is sooo handsome I could nevew stay mad at him if I wewe Aggie, but then he's hew bwuvvew and that's diffewent)

The only way to get wid of the hoomans and get some pwivacy was fow A&A to demonstwate how absolutely good they awe
phew, we finally got wid of them..they went off to be silly and meet up wif the othews who wewe awwiving at a hotel latew

Agatha convinced us to go and spy on them hehehehehe
hewe she is between Mumsie (Scwuffy,babyStan and Lacie's Hoomom) and hew(A&A's) fathew

This allowed Agatha, Awchie, Toffee and Wiley to see an amazing sight..
Mumsie dwinking NOT a coke zewo.....nedless to say.they wewe amazed

Toffee and Wiley's Mom looking bootiful and young, and Mommi twying despewately to stwetch hew neck so that she doesn't look as saggy and old as she is
(you can see how tewwibly silly they get when in a gwoup togethew..not at all dignified like us doggies)

they had the most bizawwe libations..
no wondew they wewe acting goofy (the joy of seeing each othew and feeling like they'd known each othew fuwwevew because of wondewful US, contwibooted to the mood)

Mumsie, the PLs, Toffee and Wiley's pawents, auntie Kawen(my bwuddew Duffy's Mom),Ewic's squawe Mum was sound asneep in hew woom aftew hew twansatlantic flight.
We left them to theiw silliness and went back to A&A's house fow ouw own fun evening

If you go to A&A's bloggie and to Lacie's, you can see mowe of ouw faboolous New England dinnew made by that wenowned chef Agatha (Archie tends to wowwy a lot, the sweet love wants evewything to be pawfect)

make shoowe you go visit them and heaw what they have to say

The day took a lot out of me..the twip, the excitement and my full tummy all made me weady fow an eawly night
Just look at this fantastic woom they gave me..I was in heaven

I aways like to wead befowe going to sneep
Soon , my eyes got heavy and I fell asneep..
I'll tell you about the west of my vacation soon
I hope all of you awe well..I've missed you and will twy to visit soon
smoochie kisses

How exciting it must've been to be on the steps to A+A's home! And to be greeted by Archie doing one of his tricks at the door! Such a gentleman! (Did he kiss you on both cheeks?) But please tell me that Archie didn't pull of the "perfectly well behaved brother" and eventually sneak into Aggie's bomb shelter. It was ENUF that she opened it to the RH. (We heard about that over at Mango's and we're almost afraid to view that scene ... you didn't photograph the collapsed bed, did you??) You must've felt like a queen to be staying in their home.

We figure you didn't spend ALL your time spying on the people ... we know how silly those momas can get and they may want their own privacy part of the time (or Not). Drinking Coke Zero or otherwise. It doesn't take much to figure out what they spent their time laughin and yakkin about! (What is that green thing that Toffee and Riley's moma is holding, anyway? It looks too fragile to be a ball to toss.)

Back at the house... we think we have figured out who is who between those two beautiful 3-D terriers. We had Arch and Aggie mixed up... and Fergs was coveting Archie's tail... thinking it was Aggie. We PROMISE we have not been partaking of those libations out here at altitude...
we're just a little slow sometimes. (Tell A+A to please forgive us!) And thank you for setting us straight.

Now. Enough of this. We've gotta go the post office. We've a very important card to put in the mail....

Love ya bunches,
So glad you're back safe and sound
Even happier you had a perfectly pawsome time
Bruvver Jake and Sissie Fergi xxoo

(Looking forward to seeing more!)

woos, the OP Pack

Dexter said...

Momma says that Toffee's mom is electrified. I'm not sure what that means, but she thinks that there are some extra batteries in there that keep her so firm and glowy.

So much flat fun to be had. Your room at A&A's place looks quite cozy. Too bad your WFT pals couldn't sleep with you.

Can't wait to read more!


Lacy said...

Gus said...

Sigh. Muzzer needs to get on the stick and make plans to join the next visit. I guess, assuming we aren't "otherwise occupied."


Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

It looks like a good time was had by all.

Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Agatha and Archie said...

Well,I must say the stuffie lobster did come out well despite Chef"BAM BAM"emeril Archie being so nervous and stuff..That green drink that Toffee Mom's had was actually Archie's but he didn't like it so he gave it to her...What a fun time we all had!!! Love A+A

NAK and The Residents of The Khottage Now With KhattleDog! said...

Woo get to have THE MOST FUN!


Molly the Airedale said...

How we wish we could have been there too!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

What fabulous photo's it looks like a brilliant time was had by everyone.. Great post.. Hugs GJ x

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

Asta...Mumsie seems to have a HORRIBLE CASE OF THE GIGGLES after reading your blog...

Honestly...I saw nuthin' humorous there...just factual reporting...isn't Archie darling...I love the way he worries about everything...and that lobster that jumped outta the pot...wasn't he an amazing poker player????

Now, Asta...I saw that Archie ASKED TO ON A DATE WITH YOU TO THE MOVIES...

I think that's totally fabbers...I suggest you make sure he brings his worry beads...he's going to be very nervous!!! Um...I don't think you should see any of the movies comin' out for Halloween either...he took one look at that mystery you were reading and almost had a heart attack...perhaps you could catch "Happy Feet" with the penguins or something more scholarly now that he's gone to Harvard??? Though that new movie Headless Horsedales sounds divinely spooky...maybe you and I should catch that one later???!!!

Love ya buckets!!!


Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Looks like a great trip and I am so glad that a flat Asta could go along, though I don't know what a flat Asta is. Did you loose weight? I bet a flat Asta is easier to take along at the airports or in the cars so maybe you will get to go on more trips?
My mom really liked the looks of those nice drinks.
Rest up sweetie, tomorrow I am sure will be a busy day for you.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Wow! We thinks you are so lucky to go on the trips! Did you gets to have a sip (lap) of those drinkies?

Joe Stains said...

You guys are so lucky to have had the chance to meet up and hang out like that. I cannot believe Archie still tries to get in that bomb shelter, but I guess that is why they call us terriers tenacious. Looks like everyone had a great time so far.

Sally said...

Rosie said...

What a wonderful trip you had with your mom. That is so nice to visit a city with a live in tour guide - glad you had a great trip and good weather!!

Toffee said...

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us here in Beantown! We had the most wonderful time with you!

Glad to read that you arrived home safely.
All i have to say is that it is good that mom didn't have to drive after that "bewitching monster mash" cocktail she had!
