I wote Mango a lettew about my puzzlement,

Deew Mango,

I got a little confoosed about Sea Quest Hewding..
Fiwst I went and found the cast of Sea Quest..but I felt vewy out of place and didnt weally like them

They awe a vewy stiff and dated bunch in my opinion and not at all welcoming.

Then I went to the Aquawium in Boston like you suggested and
twied to hewd some fish..they wouldn't co-opewate

I twied to be nice and feed them, but honestly, I don't weally like fish that much

It was cold and slimy and stuff and I've decided  that the Sea was the most impawtant pawt of the sea quest hewding
so I went to the souf of's much mowe comfowtable  and welaxing.

I think it will put me in the wight fwame of mind to  do a gweat job of judging

I'm also tewwibly pwoud and pleased to have gotten this bootiful awawd fwom Zoolatwy!!!

thank you so vewy much deew Fwiends!!!  I'm showing it off to evewyone on the wiviewa

smoochie kisses

(witten fwom undisclosed secwet location on boawd a yacht)

We didn't think that picture of you in your lovely orange sundress / swimsuit looked like you were in the Boston Harbor. Now we totally understand.

Have fun in the South of France, dear sissie. We miss you. But we understand your absence.

Oh Asta!
How exciting to read that you're on this side of the Pond. Why not pop across to Scotland for the weekend? It's only just up the road....(I'm relying here on that stuff I've read about our American pals being a touch vague about world geography....)
I could lay on some haggis left over from Burns night, I'm sure it's much tastier than all those frogs legs and stuff you get in France.
We could have a fine discussion about the general superiority of terriers,
Cheers! H.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Congrats on the award!

And we think you are right that the South of France is the best place to go to learn about sea qwest hewding! Plus you look so cute in your sun dress - we think you will be all set after your trip!

William Tell said...

That sea fish herding you were talking in Oklahoma, we call it noodling. Not for the faint of heart, I'm telling ya. You look like a pro at it, though. :)

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Ludo van Doggy said...

How exciting! holed up in a secret Sea quest location! I casnot wait to hear your final judging decisions!
~lickies, Ludo

Gus said... sure do know how to sea qwester yourself.


Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Asta,
We are confoosed too! We thought you were recovering from your leg injury after doing the Dashing White Sergeant at the Estate.
Now you are in France.........well we guess that is the beauty of living your life in a dog blog - maybe it doesnt have to make sense.
You are looking lovely and if you ever figure out your sea questing duties do let us know...........
love and kisses

Inky and Molly said...

Oh no, you went the wrong way!!

You were meant to come our way and you could have gone fish herding or whatever you fancy on the Great Barrier Reef...

Anyway, we hope you have a fabulous time with the Fwench, get lots of bisous!!

The OP Pack said...

We didn't think you would like the aquarium that much, but wherever you are now, you look quite lovely in your cute orange frock. We hope you are resting comfortably and getting all rested up for the big event.

Mango said...

Oh Miss Asta,
I am sorry I got confused. Just remember. No fraternizing. OK? Good thing that handsome Tommy is here for the show and not still in France.


Samantha said...

Bonjour bonjour Asta! Oh how envious we are that you are (probably) on some yacht on the French Riviera eating pate and goodness knows what! Je souhaite que les escargots sont delicieuses, ma petit ami. Dits moi bonne chance dans le Mango-Minster cher Asta!
Ciaociao baby!

Twinkietinydog said...

Congratulations on your award, Asta. Where are you exactly?

Huskee and Hershey said...

Herding fishes? Hmmm.. I think it's much better if you eat them! We just had some snapper fillet and they were yummy!
Psst.. you look gorgeous in your pretty dress!

Sally said...

Congrats on your award - we are not sure about the herding of fishes though - I do not think they herd very well - and all that water can ruin a girls hair! I think you are far better off on the Riviera in your orange ooh la la outfit.

Sally and Paddy

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Being the Best In Show judge is hard work!

The Furry Kids said...

That is super confusing! I think a trip to France is definitely a great idea.
Congrats on your award!
Your pal,

Koobuss said...

Ah, yes. The souf of France sounds like a lovely place to be questered by the sea. Can I come, too? It's warm there, right???

And, congratulations on your Shining Star award. It's bootiful, kousin Asta, just like you!

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Dear Asta,
My mommy and I loved your post. It was very cute. I think it is very confusing. The sea quest people sure looked unwelcoming. Have fun in the south of France. If you want some perfume, go to Grasse while you are there.
Sally Ann

Noah the Airedale said...

You'll be so relaxed now Asta you'll make an awesome judge.

Clive said...

Asta, that's a lovely award!

Enjoy the south of France. The NSLM and me loved Cannes last year - nowhere quite like the south of France!

take care

Sophie Brador said...

Asta, You are so worldly,


Agatha and Archie said...

Well the Aquarium fish are a little stuck up so we can TOTALLY understand why you didn't have fun and anyway we are SURE France is ALOT warmer..Love A+A

Hansel said...

thanks dear asta, for sending prayers for our hansel during our hard time. he is doing very well, but we still love the prayers rolling in for him.

Furkidsmom said...

You sure get around! Can we teleport over to France and hang out with you?

Deefor said...

I'm sure you'll be an excellent (and fashionable) judge.

Yushay said...

Asta, you are waaaay lucky. I've never been to an aquarium, let alone been snorkling!!! I'm kind of a couch potato here. Since I'm the Queen Of The Ark, I choose to pretty much rarely leave my comfy stuffed pillow. Thanks for sharing your escapades!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Where are you, Asta? You are on a yacht? Wow!

River said...

Congratulations on a very pretty award! And we like the orange dress--sort of a dreamsicle look (my mom said that). I don't understand about sea herding.

love & wags,

Kess And Her Mama said...

Looks like you checked out quite a few places. I like the South of France best! Happy judging.

Samantha said...
