Novembew in Nw Yawk??????????????????????????

Deew Fwiends, I am vewy confooselated

Mommi and I stawted walking thwoo the not vewy skenik pawt of the Meat Mawket to go on some ewwands
then we got to a bettew stweet and ..........

Isn't it Novembew????????

and am I not living in NEW YAWK?????

whewe is the wain? whewe is the snow????

How can you have Thanksgiving in a bathing suit????

This is exackly why Mommi left Califownia..it was soo weiwd..
(well in mowe ways than one accowding to hew, hehehehe)

evewywhewe I looked, hoomans and fuwwkids wewe sitting outside in westauwants and even in the middle of the stweet whewe the dividews should be and instead thewe awe tables and chaiws...
(dont ask..New Yawk is weiwd too)

all we wanted to do was go do ouw ewwnds, and instead we seem to be in a vacation place ow something

we went into the ancient mawinews stowe and I thought I had found a fwiend..
sadly, he was just a man a kin modeling a waincoat , obviously no one mentioned to him that we awe no longew on the east coast

I wanted to twy to go on the scalatow..they'we staiws that move, but Mommi picked me up
I don't see why..I can go thwoo wevolvew doows wif no pwoblem, but Mommi's awe wowwy wawts
aftew that, we went to a bed and baf stowe..no, no, no, don't get scawed ,it's not a place they bath you, but as oosual out came the flashy beast..
can't a giwl get a moment of peace?

OK Mommi, want a pictoowe of me????hewe I am up close and pawsonal, hehehehe

aftew that

finally we got to the wowfwhile pawt of shopping
NewYawk is aways full of food evewywhewe you look

we settled on the pizza..it's the cheepest, plus how can you not like pizza???

I say if you can't beat them, join them, so we found a table in the middle of the stweet dividew in the sun

and I got down to twying to hypnotise the pizza to come to me

my powews awe intact..
I did it and enjoyed evewy bite..nothing like a NewYawk Slice on the stweet

but then, I wanted to get home to see if thewe was news about Snickews( You can go to Gussie fow news aways)..
thewe was, and she' had a pwetty bad day, but she's still eating, hew tempewatoowe is OK and the swelling is not getting biggew, so I'm incweasing my pwaying and hoping and wishing on the dog staw..
it wowked fow Max( he is home and wecovewing nicely fwom his suwgewy and I know he'll be well in no time)..it will wowk fow hew too..

I just have to believe in the powew of all ouw love
The Powew of the Paw

smoochie kisses fwom sunny NewYawk

Me, too, kousin Asta!

By the way, was that pizza as good as it looked? You are so lucky to get a whole piece to yourself. All I ever get are bites. Sheesh...

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Cocorue said...

hey Asta,
hmmmm, that pizza looks deeeeeeeelish......you didn't share????

went over to Gussie to check on Snickers, thanks


The Oceanside Animals said...

There's nothing like New York pizza all right. We're out in California now and the pizza here is NOT the same!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta, we think you are so lucky to be able to go into the stores in the big city. We go on errands with Moma, but we wait in the car most of the time. We like that, so don't get us wrong. We're not complaining. But to see man in kins and go for rides in shopping carts and on moving stairs and revolving doors. How cool is that!?

You look so pretty and fluffy and white. But your spots disappeared! Do you think they'll come back? I hope so. We were like twins when you had 'em!

It's getting late. I'd better get my beauty sleep. Moma said she'd try hard to help us catch up on our reading and writing tomorrow. We are so far behind. But I keep tellin' Moma it's hard to write with crossed paws. And we can't uncross them yet. We're hoping for good news about Snickers tomorrow. And we hope that Sophie's brother Graham is going to be okay. One thing, it's GREAT to know that Max is home, recovering from his surgery. That's GOOD news!

We love you pretty sissie,
Fergi (and sleeping Jake)

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Sunny is definitely nicer than rain...it's getting cold-ish here for Malaysian weather, and I'm not liking it =(

That pizza looked yummy though! Did you manage to finish all of it? *wink*

It's great to hear Max's surgery went well, and Snickers is still going strong...we'll keep thinking good healing thoughts for them both too.


Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta

I am not one of those old fellows who thinks that pretty young lasses cannot understand science, so let me explain to you about the New York weather. First - global warming (the greenhouse effect), second, plate tectonics, and thirdly, minor variations in the tilt of the earth's axis. All these effects may be combining in very complex and particular ways to give you a sunny November in New York!

Oh, and isn't it good news about Max!

Cheers, H.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You are so good at hypnotising the pizza into coming to you! My Monty wants to know if you can teach him to do that!!

We have been purring and praying for Miss Snickers.

Clive said...

Oh Asta, I'm very jealous! I love pizza but usually only get the crusts from the not-so-little man!

The weather in New York is truly amazing for November! We have friends going over on Friday for Thanksgiving and some retail therapy and they assumed the weather would be much colder!

Keeping our paws crossed for Snickers!

take care

Molly the Airedale said...

I've always wanted to go shopping and ride inside the back of the cart, Asta! You're living my dream! You're so lucky and we both think you're lucky to get pizza!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Faya said...

Asta ! Ici aussi il fait très beau....on a 17°C pour un mois de novembre c'est beaucoup. Ta pizza me fait envie mais je sais que ce week-end je vais manger des langos avec Véronique....miam miam...
Bisous, Faya

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We're afraid the rain will come today - it is in the forecast for us to have an 80% chance. Of course the weather man is often wrong.

WOW!! That pizza sure looked tasty.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Dexter said...

You totally made that pizza go into your mouth by magic. You rock! Don't worry, it is cold today.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Ah, pizza in New PYork City on a beautiful sunny day in November - how great was that!!! So glad to see you got a slice too. All we have is cold and rainy days, not even a bit of snow.

We are so glad to see that Max had a good report and that Miss Snickers is still working hard at getting better.

Woos, the OP Pack

Gus said...

Oh Man..that pizza looks mawvelous! We hope you and Mommi had a mawvelous day. It looks bootiful


Kelly said...

Sweet Asta,
Your errands with Mommi looked so fun! Places here are not as dog-friendly as they are in NY. I'm jelly! And that PIZZA!? Will your mommi and daddi adopt me?

I am praying harder than ever for Miss Snickers. Maybe today's update will be better...


Pug(s) and Bugg said...

Oh Asta... this has our mom horribly, HORRIBLY homesick for good NY/NJ pizza.

Deefor said...

So considerate of your humans to get you your own slice and not make you beg like a doggy! under the table. We don't care if it's warm in Denver as long as there's lots of snow on the mountains.

Islay said...

Hi Asta - the rain and cold is all over here, and it does not look like it is going anywhere fast (it came over to welcome us from the sunny Sydney Summer - brrrr!) Don't forget to get ready for Christmas, though!

love & lickies from Charlie's DogBlog

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You certainly are having some strange weather for New York.. Mom wants you to get snow too. We wouldn't want you confused for long..
Mmm pizza..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Deetz said...

Amen, Asta, Amen!

doyle and mollie said...

oh asta you really are the bestest!!

Joe Stains said...

Looks like a beautiful day in New York for sure. I am sure you will be having cold and rainy weather very soon, so just hang on and wait for it. We can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving! mom is so busy at work its been crazy since they got back.

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

NUM NUM NUM NUM!!! Oh Asta...now I am sooooooooooooooo hungry for pizza...did you get the extra squirrel topping? I mean the live squirrels...they tap dance on top of the pizza or at least, rumor has it from our Burgh squirrels...

You hafta watch out cuz they fight ya for the pizza...viscious little creatures...

Mumsie's havin' a hot flashie...no, not like that hot flash your mommie had today wearin' her raincoat...

Her stoopid finger didn't stop her from groomin' us today...I did collect a nice bag of fur for Noah...wonder what he does with it all? Thank dog he doesn't send me hoki fish...

Toodles, dear girlie...


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
No rain, no snow?? Hmmm...
Just like it is here!
You had a nice walkie going to those places and finishing with Pizza!!
Paws still crossed for Snickers!
Kisses and hugs

Unknown said...

You're not complaining about the nice sunny weather are you? It will be cold and rainy and slushy soon enough...and I'll be at the beach! hehehehe. Don't think I'll miss Mom tugging boots on me for the late night walk. And I'm only packing one sweater and that's just for show! You'll have to come visit.

Your pal,


tula monstah said...

Norwood's right, when you put pizza on your bloggie all the wooting and chattah is about the pizza! I see that happened to you too! at least u got a slice... can i have your crust?


Maxmom said...

Hey there Asta baby-shoes!
You are looking really good, gal!! I love the sprinkle of Autumn in the colour of your coat!
Okay, here's a thing...don't go complaining about the weather! Afterall, you want to live in that upside down world! If you want to live the right side up, then you must come and live with me here in South Africa. Unfortunately you will have to go without snow here too.
Take care and tell your Momma that my mom says thank you for all the wonderful wishes, comments, prayers, warmth that has come our way recently. We love you guys! Also tell your Momma that my mom still wants to sit on that bench with a cuppa...maybe even pizza!

Martha said...

Hi Asta, our mum is struggling to see your text against the blue but we all saw the yummy pizza!
We love seeing your life in New York - it is so different from ours in Scotland.
You are just so cosmopolitan Asta - we feel like country bumpkins!
Thank you for sharing your fun walk in New York.
Oh we were telling Petey this morning that we had a share of our mum's New York bagel - it was so yummy we may need to relocate!!!!
love and kisses
Martha & bailey xxxx

Moco said...

What a lovely day out doing errands. We are getting all the rain here in our part of the country.

Hollie and Janie said...

I know! It was 80 degrees here sunday, but now now it's a chilly 50! (that's freezing to us in the South!) That pizza looks heavenly!! I wish I could fit in a cart at the store.... I bet I would need one of those hov-a-round things! hehe

Agatha and Archie said...

Ok we only have one question( and we agree with you on all of your points..and by the way you look really cute in the shopping basket) DI YOU GET THAT WHOLE PIECE???THE WHOLE THING???Love A+A

LuLu and LoLLy! said...

Hi Asta! We wanted to stop in and say we Love reading your bLog! The piktures are AWESUM! Your MaLtese paLs, LuLu and LoLLy!

Eric said...

Hey Asta, You've been wearing your sunscreen right? And Mommi walking with her parasol? I have the same weather as you do this week while my pals nort of the border like Martha and Bailey are nearly flooded out. Phew - guess we are the lucky ones.

Paws tightly crossed for Miss Snickers. Wiry love and kisses Eric xxxx

Peee S. Asta dearest. A dear little sweet pea arrived today. She's snoozing in her bubbly blankie!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Hey girlfriend! You have to teach me that pizza thing. I can sort of, almost reach the kitchen counter, and if I could just get the food to move, just a little bit,....
your pal, Morgan

Mack said...

I bet every part of New Yawk would be scenic to my mom! But that pizza looks magnifique!

We are still hoping and praying for Miss Snickers, Max and all the poochies and kitties out there (and humons too) that have the sickies.
