What a wonderful time your Mommi and Daddi had in Europe.

We are so very upset to read about Jackson we pray he is resting a lot and is feeling comfortable. He is such a brave Terrier.

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

Wellybobs? I'm pretty sure that Eric mighta um peed on them...he has a habit of doin' that...

Honestly, Asta...ya hogged that whole seat on the way home...I had to sit upright and be very flat...I saw ya curling up and stretchin' out...I still have a cramp in my neck.

I have never seen so much food as there was in Paris...I think I may have gained a half an ounce...sheesch...I'm cutting to 1/4 rations of Coke Zero for two weeks...that should only be 4 liters a day...

We loved loved loved that last smiley box...

Your mommi and daddi have a love that is rare...and amazing...

Kisses dear girlie...

Didn't we have a wonderful time...??



Our prayers are with Jackson and his family constantly.....

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Your mummy and daddy had such a great time. How lovely to celebrtae their aniversary that way.Mum is sad that you were in our country and she didn't get to meet you. She would have tried to get there. Those cakes in Paris loked so yummy.. Jackson is in all our thoughts and his famiy who will be so sad.. HUgs GJ xx

the many Bs said...

what a wonderful trip your mommi and daddi and you, flat Asta and Lacie are having. our ugly old lady loves to hear about other people's travels - she would love to see other places but is afraid to travel and won't leave us alone. she's old and crazy, but she's all we've got.

we're pawing our best for our buddy, Jackson. he has put up a good fight for a long time. he's one of the best terriers that we have ever known.

we think that Eric is a pretty cool dude too, and his leggeds must be really nice to have such a nice doggy as Eric.


Maxmom said...

Oh Asta
I've been going through your wonderful pictures and can see what a happy time your Mommy and Daddy had in Paris. I am so happy for them too.
At least she took you too (even though you were 'flat'!)
Thank you for sharing all your wonderful memories and tell Mommy that she has a beautiful smile...don't let it get broken!

The WriggleButts said...

That looks like a lovely trip, Asta. I have never been to Paw-is, but Mom say it's a great city.


Agatha and Archie said...

Well we had to only let PL2 read all of your posts in installments because she would either start drooling so much at the food or get all leaky at some of the pictures...Right now she is on the up side so that's good....WHen you were there were there any little cakes named Archie(he made me ask) Love and a billion kisses A+A


Dear Asta,

We are so sorry that this is the last post on your wonderful trip to France and England. Mommy luvs the pictures!

France is mommy's favorite place to visit. Also, 2-1/2 years ago my hooman sister Ashley was married there in a Castle. Butt they didn't invite us! We thought that was pretty snooty of them!

Happy 35th Anniversary to your mommy and Daddy!

Oh, and drop by our post and see what I got the other day....Big surprise!

Star and Riley.

Lorenza said...

But we really really hope the memories remain. We're pretty sure they do. And they will. What an incredibly special time. Close your eyes (like we do) and put yourselves there again. What a perfect place to be.

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

Here I am at last, the mom hasn't been working for me as her back went way out and she has been hurting. But she did let me visit a little tonight and your place was on my list of stops.
So wonderful to see the photos of your mommie and daddie celebrating their anniversary in Paris. I know they had a wonderful time. How nice of their friends to give them this special gift.
I didn't like hearing about sweet Jackson. Too sad. Prayers will be sent for Jackson not to hurt. Too sad.

Sophie Brador said...

I love your mom's Wellies! They must have had such a great time in Paris.

Asta, don't get upset. I have had a whole bunch of tests because I wasn't feeling well, but they are not bad tests. They are all about making me feel better. The only drag is, the vets stole some of my furs and are not giving them back. I'm a bit upset about that.

Happiest Anniversary to your Mommi and Daddi...we reported to room 807 last night at midnight...I don't know who answered the door but we had a fabbers pawty for an hour or two there...I don't know why your mom and dad felt they had to 'pologize to the building people. Actually, I don't know why the building people look at me, my brothers and Broom and say NOT AGAIN.

We're flyin' in tonight...tryin' something different...
