Hi Asta, first of all we have to say Happy Birthday to your mom - looking good girl!!!
We thought you were the most adorable puppy!
Of course you are still adorable but you know what we mean.
We loved the smilebox and the french music.
We also loved your Thanksgiving smilebox and though you and Duffy looked great together.
You guys had the best Thanskgiving and it was a delight to watch the pics of the two of you zooming about and having fun in the country.

Asta, you were an adorable puppy, we loved you with more color, but you know what, we love you even more the way you are now - you are a gorgeous girl!!! And your mom and our human brother have the same birthday. Don't tell our Mom we told you this, but your Mom is just a few months older than our Mom - shhhhh, mum's the word.

Woos, the OP Pack

Don't worry, Asta, the hair on Mom's head has gotten much lighter since she was a young'un too!

Your pal,


Gus said...

Ah, tell your Mommi she is such a baby..Muzzer has got her beat by a couple of years and a couple of months, and remember 61 fondly.

Thank you for sharing those lovely pictures of your Daddi cooking, and your puppy pictures too. Must say we thought you were cute as a pup, but you are more elegant and "finished" looking now. Must take lessons from your Mommi.


Lorenza said...

Teddy said...

You were sure a cute baby pup! I'm surprised at how much your coloring changed in three years. It looks like you've had a happy three years, so it's cause to celebrate :)

What a cute BP Baby Puppy Asta!! And grew up to be such a beautiful WFT. We can't look at the smilebox. We are lucky to be stopping by beause this dan old puter is starting the flas to black and back. Time to sign off. Tommorrow we should have the new one back again.
But we know pics of your mum are gorgeous as always!!
Hugs and Kisses Aunty Ami!!!!

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

Ag and Archie's comment, the circus performers bwahahahahahahaha. Good one. They'll be gona afore you know it. Well worth the adventure, right Asta?

The WriggleButts said...

You were such a cute puppie, Asta! No suprise since you're such a bootiful wire lady!


Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Well of course I always knew that a dog as gorgeous as you would have been mega mega cute as a puppy, and those pictures just go to prove it.
As for sleeping on daddi's tummy....with my scientific hat on, I wonder if it is an evolutionary thing related to feeling secure when close to evidence of a food supply?
No, on reflection I think its probably 'cos you really really love Daddi! And Mommi of course, who clearly enjoyed a wonderful birthday.
Cheers, H,

Dexter said...

Miss Asta! You had the most cutest little black face as a pup. But of course now you are a beautiful grown up lady.


Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

It looks like your Mommi had a wonderful birthday - you Daddi is a fantastic chef. We know you were glad to do any taste testing needed.

Rosie said...

Happy Birthday Mom and you are such a cutie patootie and still beautiful today :)

Mack said...

What cute baby pics!
We prefer your hair the way it is today!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

ASTA! Did'ja think we'd forgotten you? Or slid off the edge of a mountain? Neither is true! But it has been a wee bit busy around here. We're sure our moma's are gonna yak about it. BUT we DO want to tell you that, since we couldn't be there to celebrate all the special times together snout to snout, it was fun to be able to see it in pictures (and French music!) What a cute pupgirl you were, Asta, and what a lovely lady you've become. Just like your moma. She looks so incredibly happy and beautiful in her birthday pictures. We're happy that you and Daddi and all your friends could help make her day special. Very special. The food looks so yummy and we're pretty sure that we'll be smelling some of those recipes coming from our kitchen someday. (Moma says "thanks!")

Bark at ya later,

How neat to be able to take pictures of you in the same place as when you were little.

Koobuss said...

Yes, cute little kousin Asta, your love of sleeping on your Daddi's tummy will last all your life, just like my love of sitting on Grandpa's lap and eating my bully stick. The best things in life never go away.

Tell your Mommi that 61 really isn't as bad as it sounds. My mom knows. Hehehe...

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Unknown said...

Hi Asta
How come your furballs faded? I almost didn't recognize you as a pup but then looked closer and saw your fashionable modeling pose. That dinner looked so good we could smell it over here! Happy BIrthday Ami! I see you got rid of the fleas... can't snuggle with fleas?

Lacie pauses and thinks if she should be depressed about her advancing age...naaaaaaa...she chooses to celebrate it instead...
