I know, Asta, it's been very quiet without your posts and comments this week! I love your dress for the final judging but did you have Lacie do your hair? (hehehe) Okay, maybe that was a present for her birthday. Now that she's 21 in dog years, I think we're in for a wild ride!

Have fun!!!

Your pal,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Dear Asta...

I've grounded Lacie for her inexcusable behavior in attempting to toss Mango Minster...cept it's her barkday tomorrow and I'd feel badly if she couldn't celebrate...so maybe Tuesday?

Cept I think she might be visiting Norwood...I think she's referring to him as Norweed at this point...

You did an amazing job as Best In Show Judge...where DID you get that dress? It looks so...Lacielike.....

Kisses, dear Girl...

And my apologies for Lacie's poor choice in behavior...

Always, Mumsie

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

Your team did it, congrats to them. They played a good game. If the Colts had not been playing I would have rooted for them to win.

ScrapsofMe said...

You looked Mah-vel-ous as the judge. Good job! Now, lets start the party!


NAK and The Residents of The Khottage Now With KhattleDog! said...

Jans Funny Farm said...

You have had a very busy day, Asta. It was nice seeing you at Gracie's party. Like Sassy, she knows how to throw one.

We are sad for your friend Max. We've been stopping by to check on him.

Glad you're no longer in that lonely place waiting for the judging to take place.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Cant wait for the last lot of results.

Hope you and your pinkies are all well.

Molly the Airedale said...

Oh and Asta. the outfit and your hair were wonderful. My Special FASIONASTA!!!!! HAAAAA!!!

Wiry love and tons of kissses Eric

Sniff. Not even ONEe little kissie? I was only joking bout Lacie you know. Those bad boys are a naughty influence on me.... I did call her sweet Lacie ...

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
Well you did a truly splendid job at Mango Minster - congratulations are due all round. But no doubt it is a relief, no longer to be sea quest hewded.
And you still found time to think about our dear friend Max.
You are such a sweet lass (if a trifle over-adventurous on the fashion front, at least of a chap of my conservative, Scottish tastes!)
Cheers, Hamish.

Jake of Florida said...

What a refreshing sight -- a beautiful, elegant young lady dressed to the nines to judge Best in Show and bring the splendid competition to a spectacular close.

You did well, sweet grasshopper!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Kelly said...

Miss Asta,
You did a wonderful job as Best in Show judge! You had a hard decision to make, and I think you made a great choice!
You look lovekly, as always. I hope you will be able to settle back in at home now and relax a little!


Fenway said...

My deah, schweet Asta,

You aw my love connection. What a sweet soul you have. We are vewy happy to be your fwiend. And you aw a very, very wise judge.

I have many many wins in my short little life and I know with all the twaining I am doing there will be more. But there was one win I didn't feel qwalified for and that was BIS. Compared to Clive, I haven't accomplished much...yet. He is so deserving and we wanted to give him all the votes I got.

And of course, we all need to dedicate this year's show to Max.

That is a twagic loss,

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are so glad that Max got the best in show...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Unknown said...

Asta, you're quite the cheerleader. :) I have a confession. I don't want to cast my last vote. If I do, MM 2010 will be over. As for your best in show award: woof woof woof!!!


All I can say is, NICE LEGS!!!

Well, I thought it was a fabulous party and you looked just MAUVELOUS DARLING!

But even with you very busy schedule, you were very sweet to remind us all once again to keep MAX and his mom in our prayers.

Take care and we luv you!

Riley and Star.

Amy & the house of cats said...

Asta it was so nice to see you at Gracie's party yesterday! Congrats on the win!

We were so sad to see the news about Max - we haven't been keeping up the past few days and had hoped to come back to good news. We are still sending him tons of purrs and prayers!

Sophie Brador said...

Asta Banana Head! You look awesome in all your outfits. We're catching up on blogs and we haven't been judging anything.


P.S. Mom still has no voice. She can't tell me not to do anything. It's great!

Sophie Brador said...

Asta! I can hardly contain myself either and mom is useless. She keeps spilling the beans all over the place. We just heard that his snip snip went well today and they cleaned his teeth to, so he will almost be like a brand new doggie woggle. We are beside ourselves excited. Five more sleeps.


Cheyenne -Millie said...

We visited Max. We feel sad and have tears to read about what is happening. We feel our words of comfort are so little.

You have such a pretty dress! We hope that you are well!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We are glad to see that you are back home - what a jet-setter you are!! And you look lovely in your evening attire with your fancy hair-do. You must share the phone number/address of your new groomer.

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Asta, congrats on being such a pawfect judge for Mango Minster. I think you made the very best choice, and looked very elegant too.

Joe Stains said...

We had such a blast at Mango Minster, but we were also thinking about our good friend Max. We are hoping for the best.

Mom is jealous of your style, you looked great in the Best In Show ring!
