Skiing in the Fwench alps (Mack and SallyAnn's adventoowe continoos)

Mommi has tuwned a nowmal colow again thank dogness.I was afwaid she would stay all noocleaw looking, gulp..thank you fow all you good wishes and concewn.

She wasn't going to help me wif anything fow awhile, but I told hew that I pwomised my fwiends Mack and SallyAnn that I would post instead of them  fow the continooation of theiw twip to Fwance.

I don't know if you have been following on theiw bloggie, but you should.
They invited us  to Pawis and have been faboolous touw guides, and then since we had so much fun, we decided to keep going..so we all went to Lyon (oh the food capitol of the oonivewse niammmmmm)
and then since we wewe so close, we went to the Fwench alps fow a little skiing.

Mack and SallyAnn's Mom isn't able to put up pics about that this weekend, so I said I would put the pictoowes I took up

hewe we have awwived in Chamonix..isn't it magical???

we decided to stay in this nice hotel, you can see some of ouw wooms on Mack and SallyAnn's bloggie

I immediately went to twy out the fwesh snow..what a glowious day!

I was soon joined by my fellow guests

(Left to wight:) Khywa,  Teka and Sweed Will Yum  on a sled,Mitch,Maggie,Gussie showing off his mogul jump, Dyos and Faya on cwoss countwy skiis, Jake and Fewgi Nigel way up on the top of the slope, Lowenza displaying gweat fowm, Tiffenee and Coco  just leawning  how to do thesnow plow, and ummm, Mack the boston  on his tummie, hehehe

Callie, Gus and Louie, opted to be soopew adventoowous and climb vewy vewy high

One of the nice things in this wesowt is  that you can ski wight down into town fwom the slopes..
(left to wight:) Fudge,Pip,Gwumpy Bobby,ouw host Mack in wed, mcGillicutty in his goggles, baby Wocket dog and hootie, and my bwofuw Duffy in his gween  snow suit

finally the last of the cwoss countwy ski bunch wetuwned to the village aftew a full day  of skiing  
(left to wight:) Fwankie, Twinkie tiny dog, Phantom and Thundew and Sally Ann , ouw lovely hostess

aftew wetuwning to the hotel, some of us went swimming, while othews took naps....I find swimming is good fow the tight muscles aftew skiing, and I convinced the two Macks and Lowenza to join me
This is heaven
now fow a nap, then lots of eating awetelling the stowies of the day

a last look at Mont blanc

Thank you Mack and sally Ann fow this bootiful twip

smoochie kisses

Oh Asta,

Thank you so much for sharing your ski trip to the French Alps with us. Our mommy has been there but did she take us? You bet your Sweet Bippy she didn't!

But looking at those beautiful pictures we felt like we were there. You're a lot nicer then she is!

You live such a glamorous life! If this new job of mine doesn't pan out, then I would like to come live with you and travel the world!

We could be room mates, if your mommy doesn't mind? I don't take up much room and I'm on a diet!

Great post!

Star. Oh, and Riley too!

Eric said...

Ooooo la la, what a smashing time your having. Think I'll do a tunnel dash and join you.

Wagging Mommy is a lot better Asta. Not green any more. Orange would be perfect.

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xx

It was just so beautiful in Chamonix - the views were just awesome from our rooms. We had never been skiing before but we had so much fun with everyone, and then that night all the food and stories were delightful. Thank you, Asta, for helping Mack and Sally Ann with this part of the trip. It was all just magical.

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

HI Asta! we are glad you are having fun in the snow, both at home and in France! We sort of got sick of it when it started to bury us alive!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Miss Asta, thank you so much for having your mom take these photos. They turned out great and it gave Sally Ann's mama a break to get her beauty sleep. We're lucky to have such knowlegable tour guides. Thanks!
Smooches, BRD & Hootie

ps-Glad to hear your mommy is no longer glowing green! Our Mommy was that color a few years ago when they were treating her cancer. She's a rosy pink color now too!

Bobby said...

Yippee what a great time Skiing and such good company. We are so glad we were invited and came along.
Our room is superb with such good views.

Dexter said...

What a grand finale to your big adventure. Skiing looks a bit too exciting for me. Of course I am sure you love the ski fashions.


Gus said...

Asta you are a fine photographer. We were encouraged to hear that Mommi is feeling a bit less green...our Muzzer and Dad are both home for a while, so maybe someone will post for us.

Ahhhhh! Les Aiguilles des Alpes au-dessus dans le premier photographe!!! Asta, you are just such a good photographer and great raconteur of such a wonderful, fun trip! Chamonix is amazing and amusing and charming and I'm so jealous that you were all there! What a fun ski day - such snow! --- such views! And that pool you all used to soothe the muscles later - heaven! So glad your momma feels better and we'll check out Part I of this adventure!
Hugs and more Hugs xoxoxo

Thank you Mack and Sally Ann and of course Asta for taking over and taking us to the Fwench Alps. BTW I loved the sound of Fwankie and Twinkie. I love the way you speak.
I don't meant to sound like a brat, but I think there's a bit of a conspiracy going on. Can anybody tell me why I'm constantly dressed in pink (I think that Mack and Sally An were pulling my leg and you're keeping up with it)

Unknown said...

I forgot the most important thing I wanted to say: I'm glad your mommy's better and that the nuclear stuff's left her poor body. I hope she's over the flooo toooo

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Oh Asta,
Our adventure has been so amazing. Thank you for helping me to post this. I love skiing, and it is so much fun.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Sorry to hear your Mom's not feeling well, Asta! Hope she's a lot better now =) That's a very cool trip to France! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves loads...*grins* Thanks for sharing the photos with us!


kishiko said...

Hi Asta!
What a wonderful ski trip! Those pictures are beautiful!
I love playing in the snow!

Joe Stains said...

what a wonderful trip for sure. We are glad to hear your Mom is returning to normal. having a nuclear Mom might be a little creepy!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

What a great time the trip to France was! We had trouble keeping up ... kept getting lost and couldn't find the group ... but Jacques was in heaven. Me? I liked the apres-ski the best. You know how I like to curl up in my jammies.

We're glad Mommi is feeling a bit better. At least that she's gotten her normal color back. Don't tell her, but green is NOT her best color.

We are exhausted. Not only have we been to France -- but we came home to a grooming. AND the wheelies seemed to think they needed our attention for this thing called Scruffs! Whew! Bed will feel good tonight. We still are feeling the pain from skiing!

But was it ever FUN!
SissieFergi (and Jake)

Sierra Rose said...

Asta! That was one amazing amazing trip you had with some super special pals. Loved every photo!
Hope your mom is doing ok. Please give her a snuggle from us, ok?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

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

Wow!1 Great trip you guys had. I wish I liked snow but nope it's not for me

Love'd the smilebox presentation of all your now.

Do you think your pawrents would send me the picture of you on the top of your blog in you in the snow suit. I'd like my last snow post to be you. Mommy said our last snow post is gonna this weekend.

Mommy is concerned too that they might try to use Smokey to fight. If they do they will be in big trouble with Mommy and the SPCA.

Glad to hear that you7r Mommy is doing better. Give her huggies from me.



Mack said...

Man, that skiing is harder than it looks! But also a lot of fun.

Koobuss said...

Hi Kousin Asta,

Looks like I missed another twip. I don't know what's wrong with me. I just haven't been myself lately. We had so much of our snow here I could not get out. We still have almost a foot of snow on the ground after all these warm days. It's taking a real long time to go away. Shucks!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Cocorue said...
