It looks like you had a very good time with your human sissie. And it looks like everything was very tasty.

And of course you look beautiful in your pearls too!

Oh Asta, you look beautiful in your pearls - very classy.

It sounds like all furbodys are having a ball at Mango's, all that drink flying about. No wonder you have to come home for a rest. I have heard it is becoming infamous all around the world. All furbodys are talking about it.

Kelly said...

Asta, perhaps I am partial to pearls because of my name.. but you just look stunning in them! Such a lady!

I am glad you got to rest up this weekend before the big show!!!

Your pearls are just beautiful, Asta. We know you will do a great job as a judge. Now that the big mystery about Khyra has been revealed, we are sure things will get back on track. Looks like another fun dinner at your place.

And no, I am not entered, so my words are true.

Looks like you had lots of good food when your sissy visited. We got to eat up some flan on Sunday. Will post on that a little later.
Make sure & get plenty of rest for your judging duties.

Unknown said...

A girl's gotta have her pearls! At least, that's what Mom says.

And no doubt, they will prove to be pearls of wisdom when it comes to declaring a terrier the Best in Show at Mango Minster. Errr, I mean, may the best dog win!

Your pal,

We loves you & your Mommy's matching pearls. Us girls thinks we should get some to match our Mommy's. The boy beans and us furries try to help Mommy with her overeating but she growls at us. Something about she is going to starve to death with the little bit of food we leave her. We hasn't a clue what she is talking about. ~AFSS
