Fun at the Wun and a WEQUEST fow Snowball

You might be expecting a pwetty pictoowe of cwocuses  popping out of the gwound wif the stawt of spwing

but mowe delightful even than pwetty flowews is the sunny time at the wun wif my pals
You want to know why we'we all so attentive???

the hoomans wewe eating cheese sticks and stuff fwom the pub next to ouw wun and wewe towtoowing us wif the smells

nevew one to bwood, I soon twansfewed my attention to a ball

looked awound to make suwe no one would take it

and spwang into action

Mommi and Daddi bof felt cwummy all weekend, but Daddi at least bwought me hewe to play evewy day fow an houw

luckily, my wun is only two blocks fwom my house, so it's not a big deal even when the hoomans feel wotten

as you can see, we had summew weathew all weekend  72 degwees.
We went stwaight fwom mid wintew to summew skipping spwing along the way

I was moving so fast, Daddi bluwwed my pictoowe

but no mattew,.even wifout the bootiful gwass, and flowews that some of my lucky fwiends have, ow the cheese sticks that the hoomans devouwed wifout shawing..I had a skipping, dancing, fun time

Now I have an impawtant wequest fwom my pals!!!!

 see this lovely pictoowe of Sunshade and hew bwofuw Jaffa???

it was done by Snowball's JieJie

Snowball has been vewy sick and needs lots of dogtow visits to twy to make hew bettew hew Jie Jie needs to stay home wif hew  and they could use ouw help

pleez think about getting one of youw own!

sale of pouches by Snowy's JieJie wif a pictoowe of youw doggie painted on it

the pictoowe will be painted on a 11"14" pouch at a cost of US$35 incloosive of postage

you can see mowe examples if  you go to the linkie  had above.
I think they awe tewwific and useful, and weasonable and it would weally help JieJie pay fow Snowy's many medical bills so pleez considew getting one!!!!!

smoochie kisses

'Nevew one to bwood' What a great lesson for us all. So glad you had a good time at the run!

Hi Asta,

We didn't get any pretty flowers or even a fun run with the tease of cheese sticks, but we did get a big snowstorm - more than 8 inches. It won't be around long so we are really enjoying it.

That is a great idea for Snowball's JieJie to do. We will have to get our Mom to take a look. We hope Snowball is doing better.

So glad you're seeing signs of Spring! It's about time!

I wish I could have been there. I love playing with other doggies and tennis balls. I don't have a run to go to, but I can go to day care. It isn't quite the same, but kinda of the same. I would have cried for a cheese stick, and I can cry for food well. I have lots of healthy dog food, but human food is so much better.

P.S. I thinking about traveling again going to Rome. Mack wants to take Kyhra on a special date, and he told me to bring a friend or two.

Snowball said...

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
I wish you could have had one of those cheese sticks, but the tennis ball action looked like a ton of fun. Momma and Master had been feeling blue, but the sunshine this weekend perked them right up. I hope that it helps your mommi and daddi feel better.

That pouch is amazing. I am going to go check out her site right now.


Eric said...

Hello Asta! I'm wagging you had a fun at the run even without cheese sticks. Cheesesticks from the pub? That's not pub food. Thats bangers and mash and fish and chips.I hoovered the floor of the pub for them on Friday. Didn't even ask for payment. Nice of me eh?

Wiry loves Eric xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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

Oh Asta...I might get that pouch with Sunshade and Stinky on it...they look so totally cute!! That Miss Sunshade is just the hottest girlie ever!!!

I'm exhausted from my romp today...Mumsie posted 'bout it too...I dunno why she was so upset??

You look like you had a wonderful time at the wun with all that foodie...I'm startin' to pack my suitcase...it's gonna be so much fun modelin' for Cath Kidson...

Kisses, dear Girlie...

Is Mommi outta the closet yet?

The pouches would also make nice presents. I am terribly sorry you ran so fast that your dad messed up the photo BOL I love the way you think

The Animal Doctor said...

Asta girl, im glad you had fun!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
It is not funny when our parents are not feeling well, right?
I hope they get better soon!
Sure it was great your Daddy took you to your run! And those cheese sticks.... mmmm.... yummy!
I can see you had lots of fun playing with your ball!
I am going to visit Snowball now to know about the pouches! Thanks for letting us know!
Kisses and hugs

Sally said...

Hi Asta, Looks like you had fun at the dog run - no matter what! Although they could have thrown you a cheese stick or two! Hope your parents are feeling better soon! I prefer your dog run to our woods - I have itchy paws again - and prefer to be urban and walk on pavement! No scratchy grass and leaves for me thank you!

Big licks
Sally and Paddy

PS We will check out those lovely bags from Jie Jie

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh dear Asta the torture of the yummers next to your run!! How could the hoomans do that to you all?? We do hope you got at least a little taste. Also,we hope your mommy & daddy are all better now.
We're going over to visit snowball's mommy now.That is sweet of you to tell us about her artwork on bags. Thanks!
Smooches,BabyRD & Hootie

Bobby said...

I hope you got a cheese stick or something,all furbodys stood there looking and hoping.

Koobuss said...

Yes, Kousin Asta,

It was a beautiful weekend. Wasn't it nice to get outside for a while. The sun and warm temperatures were great!

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Agatha and Archie said...

Geesh how could you concentrate with CHEESE STICKS RIGHT THERE..but you look like you did ok....We will run right over to Jie Jie's We didn't know Snowball was sick....Love A+A

TwoSpecialWires said...

One day we will run in a run. Just like you. You are such a good example of a happy, hopping, skipping, dancing, leaping, prancing girl. No wonder you maintain your pretty figure and keep your Mommi an Daddi smiling. You are a picture of optimism, sweet sissie. Even in the face of withheld cheese sticks.

We love you.
