Daddi took this pictoowe neaw his office on wall stweet to show Mommi that even thewe it was decowated and pwetty, but she still wouldn't go out anywhewe

then I got a most wondwously bootiful neckwawmew fwom my sissie Fewgie and bwuvvew Jake

I had seen it on othew bloggies and covet it it, little did I know mine was on it's way

I begged and begged "if it snows ovew night can we go out and play in my new scawf?" Mommi said suwe , you can go out wif Daddi
but i wanted all of us to go
and it snowed..not as much as I'd like, and most of it got blown away by the wind, ow taken away by the evil snow shovelew machines and hoomans, but still, it snowed!!!!!

and I convinced Mommi to come wif us!!!!
I got hew out of the house!!!
Tewwiewpowew wules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!well ackshually, all fuwwkidpowew wules!!!!!!!!!!!

we went out all togethew when Mommi was suwe not to bump into anyone..she's not weady fow that..small steps

I had a gweat time!!! watch my smilebox and see.

Asta, you should have headed over to the playground on Horatio and Hudson! Loads of fluffy snow there! I even lost my orange ball in it for about half an hour, there was so much of the fluffy stuff! Maybe tomorrow we can go play there.

Aren't naps after playing in the snow the best?

That tree on Wall Street was beautiful!

Your pal,

oh asta you are the best and so clever to help bring some xmas cheer to your momma. we want to wish you, your momma and pappa a furry styley christmas!!

Dexter said...

Miss Asta! I heard mommi laughing in that movie. I know that you are normally not silly, but you were intent on making mommi feel better. I kind of laughed too at your bouncing self (I hope that's OK).

I am glad to see that your daddi was wearing practical boots and not high heels like that lady. Sheesh. What was she thinking?


Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
You are such a sweet darling, making sure your Mommi came out and enjoyed the snow. It sure looks like everyone had fun. Reminds me of my younger days when I was all frisky and bouncy like that....
Happy Christmas!
Cheers, H.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I know you are the one who can cheer your mom up!
Your neck warmer is beautiful!
Kisses and hugs

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

Asta what a great job making mommi laugh! You were very funny. Even my mommy smiled!
Oh I love your neckwarmer. So beautiful, yet practical too.
Thanks for the movies and the pics.
We really did like them.

Deetz said...

I sure hope your mommy gets over her blues soon. My mum always gets blue this time of year so this year she decided to order tons of books so she could just read through the blues. I don't think its working...You keep making your momma smile, okay, Asta. You always make me smile and my heart glitter.

The WriggleButts said...

You're a good girl Asta. Your mom is very lucky to have you making her feel a little better!

We're sending you all big kisses.

Bajas, Virus and Hyssing!

Eric said...

Asta sweet pea, I love your neckwarmer. Jake and Fergie's Mom is such a clever catourier and the colour for you is perfect. Sets off your black bits perfectly.You look utterly sweet and charming zooming in the snow in your knitty woolly. (did Aunty jane knit if for you?) I wore my orange woolly today for two minutes only cos it made me play statues.

Hope my flat self is cheering Mommy up with my singing, Mom says she can always place me face down to muffle the sound if she gets fed up with me.

Wiry love and squillions of kisses Eric xxxx

Ruby Bleu said...

I am so glad that you got the snow you wanted and your mommie and daddie went outside with you. I must say that I don't understand why you doggies like the snow so much! I would rather . . . well stop by my place and you will see what I like to do when it is cold outside. Your neck warmer is beautiful and so purrrfect for you. You looked nice and snuggle weating it.
Great to see you posting, I have been missing you.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Asta you are very clever. A small step is a huge step.. I so hope your mum feels better soon. tell your mum we are thinking of her.. also tell your mum the Ecard was lovely and will be just as much treasured as a snail mail one.. Hugs GJ xx

We think you look impossibly cute in your new neck warmer!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We are so glad you were able to get your Mom out and that you made her smile.

We got our tree up thanks to Daddy and he got Mommy's Santa's down and she even put them out but THEN......the bad Daddy took the shelves out of the pantry and now the stuff that belongs in the pantry is in our family room. The Mommy is not happy. She said all the work she did to make the family room pretty was RUINED......

PS: It has been sunny here and that helped our Mom's mood a lot. ~Socks, Scylla & Fenris

Gus said...

Randi said...

Hi Asta...its hard sometimes to get our mammas out the door..& the holidays are a happy time...yet sadness is just on the other side of the door...please give you mama lots of hugs & kisses & snuggles from me...

The Animal Doctor said...

You did a wonderful job cheering up your Mommi, Sweet Asta. Just be patient with her. I know a lot of people who get sad/depressed during the holidays. My Mom is one. She used to get teary eyed listening to Christmas songs.
You look chic in your neck warmer.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta! We snuck on the computer for the very few minutes that we've got time ... we don't wanna get caught this early in the vacation. But our first stop was HERE and we're glad we came. 'Cause not only did you make your mommie smile, but you made US smile and wiggle our little bottoms, too! It was just what we needed, seeing you play in the snow (in your new neck warmer - we're happy you like it!). And it was even greater to hear Auntie Mommi Ami's and Daddi's voices. They sounded happy to be out enjoying the snow and run with you. And what a great reason to go home and nap! Tired and more cheery.

We miss you! It's nice to be able to peek in every once in a while and know all is well. We even got a tiny peek at flat Eric while we were here! Two hits with one visit.

We'll try to get back. We want to go visit all of our friends in the next few days. We're trying our best.

We love you, Sweet Asta. Enjoy your time in the beautiful city, and know we are thinking of you.

Sophie Brador said...

Asta! You are so cute bouncing around in the snow. And your daddy has the same boots as my mommy. It must mean her and I need to go to NY and walk in the snow with you guys.


Sally said...

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! We played in the snow yesterday too - it is so pretty - we loved the photos - we think you did a great job of cheering up your Mom - we understand - D gets this way sometimes too - so I like to give her cuddles and lots of licks - no one can resist the power of the Wirey Terrier!

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

We hope your Mom feels much better soon!

Agatha and Archie said...

Sorry we couldn't watch the whole video. He saw the snow and ran for cover because he thought a plow might follow....Love Aggie PS Tres chic neck warmer..at least your brother didn't make you wear it as if your tooth was pulled..

The Oceanside Animals said...

You are looking stylish as ever, Asta!

You are such a good girl taking care of your Mommi!

Petra said...

Hi Asta! Your new collar looks gorgeous on you, little friend!

I'm sure your mom is so glad to have you by her side right now, while she's fighting the blues. YEA for making her smile! Your dad must be as special as you are to know how to help her, too.

Motch says depression is something she's watched others go through but hasn't experienced herself. We're saying a prayer for your mommy, Asta.

Um...I know I know...those heels I had on that day were a bit high...but what is a trendy girlie to do?? I mean I surely can't wear my Ughs any more after well...hmm...you know...

And Asta...with that red coat on...well...I KNOW the truth...you have been here in Pittsburgh helping Stanley feed the homeless and Scruffy has been in your place...um...THAT LOOKED JUST LIKE HIM!!!

Gosh, I hope he didn't lift his leggie or anything...

Kisses dear girlie...


Koobuss said...

Oh Kousin Asta,

You had such a wonderful time in that snow! Wasn't it fun! And, I loved your outfit. Red and black look super on your with your gorgeous white fur. And it's so festive, too. You sure know how to dress for the occasion.

By the way, I got a neckwarmer, too, from our kousins in Kolorado, but I thought it was a hat. Oops...

Glad to see that your Mommi is doing better. Keep giving her lots of kisses. If that doesn't work, try chicken soup.

I hope to have some video of me for you soon, if I can ever get my Mom to have some time for me. We'll get there eventually.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobus

erin said...

This time of year seems to be very hard on the humans and us dogs have to work hard to cheer them up. It's no easy task. Lately, my tail has been down a lot and so maybe I'm feeling it too. You did a really good job getting your mom out, Asta. I hope you have a happy howliday!

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

Stopping by a little early to wish you, your mommie, and daddie the bestest of Chrismouse ever! I know Santa Paws will be good to you this year as you have been such a good girl all the year long.
I am giving the mom a couple of days off for the holidays and will be back visiting soon.
I am so lucky to have you for my friend. I like to call you my old friend but add that you are not old it is just that we go back aways and you are one of the first friends that I knew when I started out with the blogging.

Cocorue said...

hey stylish Asta, love your neck warmer

your poor mumster.....just give her more attention and kisses and she should cheer up

a very wonderful and happy Christmas to you and your family, dear Asta
