Asta Sweetie - Your Mommi and Daddi are so wonderful to take all of us along to play with you in the snow. It was magical! And we love the sweater..it makes you look sophisticated and chic in your l.b.s.(Teka says that means, Little Black Sweater)


Deborah said...

The snow looks like so much fun! I love the nurse's hat!
Have a nice night!

Molly the Airedale said...

We love the snow as much as you do, Asta, but I think we can finally say that we're anxious for spring to arrive!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Inky and Molly said...

Sheesh, that is tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of snow. No wonder you didn't want to get out of there. That would have been oodles of fun jumping around in there. Gosh, we are sooooo jealous. Some of us aren't even jumping anywhere yet let alone in the snow...

Mack said...

I have selective hearing too sometimes!!!
We sure do hope Snowball gets better real quick.

Dexter said...

Where is the romping? You look so snug in your jacket and then of course your jammies at the end of the day. But glad the snow is gone, right?


Stella said...

Hi Asta:

I just wanted to thank you for the kind comment you wrote on my blog today. I can see by you looking after your friend's health, you are a most kind pup.

I am glad you have other kitty friends, I like having pups and kitties as friends.

Meow, meow,

What a wonderful post, Asta - I felt like I was totally there with you - BTW, you make a GREAT retriever!!! Great pictures and videos of such an historic snowfall back there! You totally look like you are having such a great, great time, bouncing through all that fluffy white stuff after your ball! And how pretty NYC looks! And how elegant you are in your chic attire, both snowplay outfit and apres-snowplay duds! So stylin' girl!!! Sorry that snow can't stay forever. We just went over to wish Snowball well - hope she does better, dear Asta!
Big Hugs xo

Oh Asta, how we wish we had that snow here. We would so love to run and do zoomies in it with you, but New York City is too far away:(

Bocci said...

Asta and parents-what a slide show! We all loved it on our end! Just glad we didn't get that last round of snow-I'm sick of getting my paws wiped off everytime I go out!
And I must say your black sweater is extremely sophisticated-what a classy fella you are!

houndstooth said...

I'm hoping for more romps in springtime than romps in the snow at this point. You look like you're totally in your element, though! You're also really sweet to always be thinking of your friends!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I loved to see you there in the snow!
I hope Snowball is feeling better now!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Hi Asta! We are glad you had so much fun in the snow! We hope that your friend will eat and get better soon. We are sending over lots of purrs!

I love snow fun, from the comfort of my own heating pad. You're not only a good furiend but a good nurse too, Asta? You're so talented and diverse. You never seize to amaze me

Oh Asta...you looked adorable in that snow...um...if you're wonderin' where it all went, I had it boxed and frozen for smoothies for this summer...you'll thank me in July...

Um..I am very concerned about Gilbert and Bertie...they have been swinging from the chandelier for the past two hours...

I dunno bout this whole Wheelie thing...I think Eric is plannin' something and I think the Wheelies are gonna counterattack...


Gotta go and put my night cream on...and put me fur up in curlers...

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Your white wonderland is pawsome. We don't get snow here so I really don't know what it's like. I suspect i wouldn't like it much. Just too cold for a kitty.

The Musketeers said...

Wow ! Looks like fun ! How we wish we were there !

Noah the Airedale said...

That snow sure is deep but you look like you're having a ball.

Koobuss said...

Poor Kousin Asta,

You must be very tired, running in the snow and cold like that for such a long time. You Daddi really put you through the paces! I know how tired you can get from snow. I've been spending some time digging trenches. Sigh...

Love and lots of Koobuss Kisses,

I'm on my way for a visit. Has the thrill of the cold worn off yet? ;)
BTW, I LOVE your blog header. ♥

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Wow, what a great day that you had there, Asta! The snow looked so gorgeous..I don't think I will leave too when Mom calls me in. LOL!

Hope you have a great week ahead!


WFT Nobby said...

Hi Asta
Really you should be an Arctic explorer. What are they thinking, using huskies?

Maxmom said...

Hey there Asta-sweety!
That snow looks like such fun, but mom says I must say "Brrrrrr...!"
(I wish "I" was able to look at your smileboxes, but sadly I can't) I am sure they are just as beautiful as you!!!Please send my love to your mommy!

Eric said...

Thats one heck of a lot of snow sweet pea Asta. Course you looking smashing in your jumper ...where is it from? Dogga Karen? Ahh if only I would wear clothes and walk in them. I'm thinking of becoming a naturalist. They have special beaches sometimes, can you wag over in the summer and join me? heheee!!

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xx

Don't forget dearest you can enter your darling wheelies for Family and singles . Fondest. Miss Enid

Daisy said...

Asta, you look so pretty in your sweater and neck warmer!

Hollie and Janie said...

Wow! You have gotten so much snow!! It's so beautiful! I often feign hearing loss when I don't want to leave my park, too! hehe

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Asta! I loved your snow!
Snow BeaWootful!
I would not hear Mum calling either, she calls it selective hearing, I call it ignoring her.... I am so glad woo had fun. Great job running over to Singapore to nurse woo little friend too!
Scampi would like your sweater too, but I think they are silly on me, I am always warm.. unless it gets below freezing, then I need to come in, after all I am a Florida Husky!

WE are so pleased you finally had loads of snow to play in. We certainly cannot blame you for wanting to stay at your run for as long as possible.

Funny how snow gets in your ears and makes you a bit deaf isn't it? We suffer with this as well...........

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Looks like you had a pawsome time in the snow!!

You sure do keep the roads hot traveling, Asta!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Martha said...

Asta, what great snow pics - what fun you had.
Although the snow is wonderful we are all a bit fed up with it over here in Scotland.
So we will just play with you in your Smilebox but please please snow don't come back to us right now!
We Want Spring.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta. Finally! You got your deep fluffy snow! The fun kind to romp (?) and play in! We have to stay, though, it looks like it's really hard to catch invisible snowballs.

You look so fashionable and cozy (and warm!) in your beautiful sweaters. All of them. (We are so wooly right now, we don't often wear our sweaters and jammies, but we have a feeling that is about to change!)

From what we've heard, Snowball is beginning to eat again? We think it might have been your loving nursing skills that encouraged her. We'd do anything for you, and bet she would, too.

The wheelies around here are making noise. We think we know why. There are several reasons we can think of. It sure was fun talking about them the other night! We keep hearing about someone called "old soul". And what's this about Scruffs?

Sometimes it's too much to keep up with. We think we'll go take a nap now!

Love you, Sissie
Jake and Fergi xxoo

oh my Asta, we are soooooooooo with Martha and Bailey, we have had enough snow now to last us for the next ten years or more.

Scotland has just experienced the worst winter for 50 years, yes, please, roll on the spring!

The snow which fell last week is still here, over 6 ins deep and has now frozen 'cos its so cold......me and Jeannie are so fed up with it.


Sierra Rose said...

Hi ya smoochie kissy!! You looked so great in that snow! Your winter sweater is beautiful, and what fun times you had!! I often loose my snow ball too! Mom carries a little shovel sometimes, determined to find em....(but I LOVE to dig them way down in the snow bank!!)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh Asta my delightful friend...what a joy it was to watch you and your humans play in the snow. That is unusual isn't it that NYC gets that much snow? You sure were having a great time. We loved watching you in all the clips and will send them to our WFT loving furrend who adores you also:)
Warmfuzzy kisses...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Asta you had so much fun in that snow.. Mom would make snowballs and throw them for us. She thought it was funny when we couldn't find them too...
You are being a great nurse again...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Hello Beautiful Asta - it was great to watch you play in the snow. Charlie and Higgins used to love snow and they never wanted to come inside either! Good luck in Singapore

Oskar said...

Snow is fun.

I'm off to leave a message for your friend.

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Huskee and Hershey said...

Love the photo of you snoozing under your hoodie!! You look gorgeous in red Asta... then again, you look great in any color!

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, congratulations on your snow. it's beautiful and so much fun. snow is a wonderful gift for us poochies!
we have visited Snowball on FB and she seems to be doing a little better. our Baxter is going through a little difficulty too - mom doesn't understand why he doesn't have interest in anything lately, except playing at the dog park and last sunday he collapsed there. he was okay after a few minutes, but our mom was really scarededed. we think she's going to take him to the vetty, but without any concrete symptoms, she thinks the vetty will just blow us off. it's happened before! we're just too healthy to get any sympathy from the vet.


River said...

Hi Asta! I'm so glad you got some snow. It sure looks cold--good thing you have that warm hoodie. We are thinking of Snowball and wishing her well.

love & wags,

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

What'd you do, go home and change your sweater for the 2nd video?! You are so stylish.

If you weren't already spoken for I'd have to make you one of my girlfriends!! You are so adorable playing ball with yourself or with your folks! Are there no male dogs at your run? I didn't see a single peemail. What's with that?!

Oskar said...

I just got a chance to watch your movies.

I think I might be getting a crush on you, you're so pretty *blush*
