A Vewy Special DAY

I was tense all weekend, wowwying about all my fwiends who awen't well..
Max, who is going to have suwgewy on Monday,
Eduawdo, who is battling a stwange tewwible disease, fwiends who cwossed ovew the wainbow, and Miss Snickews , my sweet cousin , who almost left us this week.

Snickews aweady had hew bags packed fow hew twip ovew the wainbow.
We wefoosed to give up hope, and Snickews showed what a stwong and detewmined giwl she is, despite fighting the seezoowe monstew on top of hew possible C.

My sissie Fewgi and Bwuvvew Jake owganised a vewy special wowld wide moment fow hew. I kept thinking, this just has to wowk..we have to use all ouw paw powew to help evewyone.

Daddi headed ovew to my bwuvvew Duffy's house

it was a soggy satuwday

he took these pictoowes wif his phone as he walked thwoo Washington Squawe Pawk to get him

his Mom, Auntie Kawen has the floo, and we thought it might help hew if she could stay in bed and we bwought him to ouw house

this is no weathew to go out in when you'we feeling poowly

Daddi passed this cheeky squiwwel..he was lucky, Daddi didn't have Duffy wif him yet

the little guy came ovew and wanted food..Daddi didn't have any sowwy, hope you find some nuts
..at least he didn't become Duffy's snackie

Duffy awwived..we did zoomies fow a while and then got weady fow ouw impawtant moment

we jumped up on the sofa facing towawds Iowa

we wewe vewy newvous
( well I was anyway..Duffy is mowe laid back)

The alawm Mommi had set went off, and we had ouw 30 seconds of silence..Mommi held me, Daddi held Duffy, and we all sent ouw healing , loving thoughts and pwayews floating thwough the sky..we thought of evewyone and hoped that pain and huwt and sadness would go away

aftew that we wan awound and bawked happily
(Mommi was unable to get it on film..she's clutzy sometimes, hehehehe)

then it was time to send ouw kisses wafting on a bweeze in theiw diwection
(again, Mommi twied to get it on film and I'm quite embawwased by hew wesults..but she gets A fow effowt)

This is a mowe accoowate pictoowe of the kisses on the bweeze

It was a magical few minutes..we felt one wif all ouw fwiends all ovew the wowld..
thinking the same thoughts, wishing the same dweam..
We felt it, weally we did

The powew of the paw and good intentions

I know that all ouw fwiends feel the love and the concewn and it will help.
They will continoo to be in ouw heawts and we will keep sending the zen.

It's a long woad ahead, and none awe out of the woods yet, but I believe they will be.

Smoochie kisses to all of you fow being the loving cawing fwiends that you awe..
We awe lucky to be pawt of such a commoonity of love

today, the sun is coming out..

all my love


Duffy said...

I was so glad to be with you, Sissy, to send all our healing, happy wishes and prayers for Snickers together. I hope the double dose will help.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

That was really beautiful, Asta. We just know that Snickers must have felt all the love and healing power surrounding her last night. We did our part too. We are hoping to hear some good news from her this week and from all the other pups in need.

Woos, the OP Pack

Faya said...

Nous on a pas osé faire trop de bruit parce qu'il était minuit ici....
Bisous, Faya

Gus said...

Asta (and Duffy) that was a lovely post. So sorry Daddi didn't bag the squirrel for you, but maybe next time.


Molly the Airedale said...

What beautiful pictures your daddi got, Asta!
The one of you blowing kisses is just too precious!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Snowball said...

We felt it too. It sure was a very special moment. I can feel the paw power. I sure hope this will help Snickers and all our other friends who are poorly.

Hope that your mom and Duffy's mom will be feeling better soon.


Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

(As she hands mom a Kleenex) Sunny says: That was beautiful Asta. We went outside, all of us together. We went with plenty of time so Mom could calculate the direction of Ioway from where we were(she even got a map out and it still took her a bit...sheesh)
At 5 we all did our silence and then near the end of the minute I barked, tried to get the little guy to bark too, but he is kinda clueless. Scooter did though (uh, mom howled to try to make the new guy join in...the neighbors more than likely think she is nuts..they would be right!) Then we blew kisses and it did feel like we felt something very special. What a great idea it was, and what a great group of folks we are blogging buddies with!! Now about that squirrel....are all New York squirrels like that??? Because if they are, I'd have a chance of realizing my dream. CATCHING one!!!
Hope Aunty Karen feels better the soonerest! Oh and Asta Dahling, I believe I saw all the way up into your brain through your nose when Aunty Ami was videoing your kiss!
Many Hugs
We love y'all

Oskar said...

I'm so sorry I missed this great movement you had yesterday! I am still praying and sending love to Snickers!

Your such a sweet doggie, Asta!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We hopes Duffy's Mom is feeling better.

We thinks it was great that we were all thinking, purring, pawing or whatever good healing thoughts to Snickers at the same time. If felt very majical.

Love the photographs of the park. It looks very pretty there even soggy. ~S,S,C & F

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Yes. It was a pawesome moment yesterday. At 5pm my mom gave me a big hug and we were praying. Let me tell you something... it was so special that even my mom's pain went away for a few hours!
I loved your post!
Kisses and hugs

Dexter said...

We were there too. I went into the dog cave so that I could totally focus. I liked all your kisses. I bet they went all the way to Iowa for sure.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

What a kind heart you have. I just know that all of the kind thoughts will make Miss Snickers better.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta Sissie. We are so glad you and Duffy were together to send a double dose of wishes and kisses from NYC yesterday. That walk that Daddi took through the park was beautiful, and must've really helped him to set the mood. It looked like a really peaceful feeling. Even the squirrely was calm (but we know that city squirrels are a different sort of breed.) Good for you for checking the time and getting it just right! Just like us, you pointed to Iowa and sent your love. (We stayed inside, too, on the big bed, 'cause it was snowing hard and we wanted to be able to put ALL our attention on sending the healing vibes to Snickers and all the others needing some extra love and support.) We thought about you when we blew our kisses, wondering if they might arrive at about the same time as yours. We totally believe that yesterday brought a feeling of closeness and community to a WHOLE BUNCH of doggies and kitties and their families. How could it NOT? Now we all just need to remember that we are ALWAYS HERE for each other. You know what? Maybe we need to do this every year. An anniversary, you know? And everyone send the wishes and kisses to ALL our friends! We can blow the kisses straight up to the Dog Star! I'm putting it on Moma's calender. An ANNUAL Worldwide Moment. What do you think?

Your SissieFergi and BruvverJake xxoo

Unknown said...

I love this post. How sweet. I'm sending good vibes out too. Tell mom her kissing sounds make me kiss the monitor too.

And dad did a great job with his phone camera. I hope auntie Karen is feeling better too.

Asta, we really liked this post. You are a wizard with words!! We are keeping our paws crossed too for all the friends who are not feeling well. Your Dad took some great pics of the park. Thanks for sharing.

This is what our great community is all about, the emotions we all share. We all joined together for a few moments and it was amazing.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Hi Asta,
Yeah, we have to use all our paw power to help everyone.
On that Saturday 5PM I was in the the car on the way home with my pawrents, we stopped in a parking lot and together prayed for Miss Snickers and other friends!
My hooman sister came yesterday for dindin while we were on your post, she complimented the scenic pictures taken from your dad's phone, she said those pictures are as beautiful as oil painting.
Love ya!

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

I am so humbled by all that joined in, what a simply amazing thing it was.. We all stopped whatever we were doing and spared a few minutes to send healing vibes.. You could actualy feel the brilliant charged atmosphere.. It was almose eerie to feel. Or a better word... Magical. It will work, it must... Hugs GJ xx

Mack said...

Like I told my sweetie Rubykins, I just KNOW this week is gonna bring better things for Miss Snickers!

My mom said a prayer for the sweet lady and also all the doggies out there who are in pain, or whose owners are in pain. Right now her eyes are a little leaky.....

Agatha and Archie said...

Asta, it was such a sweet and special moment, wasn't it? You and Duffy made a great team!
I just know Miss Snickers and all of our sick friends could feel our love.

Clive said...

Asta, we just love this post. You put everything so well - it was amazing the way so many pulled together and a great credit to all involved.

Well done again.
take care
Clive and family

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

Even on the bad weather days the photos of NY are beautiful. That is one nice place to live.
So glad to hear that Snickers decided to stay and not to go to the bridge. Your evening prayers for healing have paid off. Never underestimate the power of prayer. Will keep praying for return health for all of those that you know are not feeling well.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We wanna go walk in the rain in NYC. It is sooooo pretty. All the reflections and the colors.

When's the rainy season? Huh?

Nice job, kousin Asta! The Power of the Paw is an amazing thing.

We are sorry to hear that your Aunti Kawen has the floo, as you said. We hope that she gets better real soon.

Loved the pics that your Daddi took on his way to get your bruvver Duffy. That is a bootiful park. As for the squirrel, well I won't say any more.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Dewey Dewster said...

Asta....I'm sure Snickers could feel that powerful zen that all the Paws were sendin' ta her....when all of us get together, there's nothin' ta stop us from changin' the world....

Nice job on the Snickers constellation....we sure hope she's gettin' better now and that everyone else that's sick is too....

Tell yer Dad that his phone takes real nice pictures....Gram never uses her phone but she knows it takes pictures too...not that she knows how to do it....wish I could get 'er inta the 21st century like the rest of us....sheesh....it's hopeless.....
