(it was the same time of yeaw too)

in the mowning, we walk up this long dwiveway, and walk fow about five minutes to get to my auntie Mawia's house whewe Duffy stayed and we spent most of ouw time

I lived on Whippowwill and Duffy , on Lakeview

This is auntie Mawia's house wif the most heavenly safely fenced in backyawd full of scwunchy , yummy leaves

This is a pweview of what Duffy and I did a lot

Hi Asta
Thanks for telling us about your trip. I can see that any driver would find you and Duffy both very helpful passengers! And what a perfect time you had - not only walks on scrunchy leaves, fine company and food, but also those oh so important intellectual pursuits..
Just my cup of tea!
Cheers, H.

Welcome home, Asta! Isn't it just the best to get to be outdoors for hours at a time and run around without a leash on? Glad you had a fun trip!

Your pal,


TwoSpecialWires said...

Wow! Sissie Asta! What an incredible place you got to spend a whole week with Daddi and Mommi and Duffy and Auntie Karen and all your friends! We think that fenced in "yard" (looked like heaven in the fall to us!) must have been the most fun EVER! All those crunchy leaves! And sticks! And birds and squirrels to make friends with! We noticed that even as Mommi relaxed and read, you were carefully watching watching watching! And we bet you got soooo much exercise that you got to eat extra bites of yummy foods without having to worry about your figure!

We're glad you are back and had a safe trip = and we are really excited to see more pictures!!!!

We love you!
Sissie Fergi and Bruvver Jake ooxx

Jake of Florida said...

Looks like the fun at the end is well worth the long ride!!!

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

Welcome back! I missed you for sure!! That looks like such a nice place to visit. And just think you got to take a trip down memory lane going back to where you were a little wee one. I cannot believe that such a city girl was first in the country.

Good that you could help your dad with the driving and all. That helps break up the trip behind the wheel.

Rest up as soon you will be on another trip. Momo has arrived, though a little late because of the holiday travelers and all. We will have a fun time when you and Olive arrive. Momo doesn't know that you are coming, it will be a surprise for her.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Welcome home. Looks like you had a fun vacation.

Kelly said...

Asta, I am so glad you're back!

Country Itchies...

Oh if only if only we could all have a place like that right in our back yards( but in the middle of the city of course) Don't you just love sticks? It must be a girl thing because Archie doesn't like them.Speaking of him he wants to know if you want to go ice skating( hoo boy this should be ripe.. him on skates) Lvoe A+A
