WFT Nobby said...

Hi Asta
Gosh that picnic looks such good fun. And aren't you and Lacie brave, going in the water for a swim like that, while still flying the flag too. Gail took me for a walk by a loch yesterday, but I was too scared even to dip my paw in. Maybe if I had one of those pretty pink and purple rubber rings I would have been braver.
Happy Memorial Day (whatever that is, I haven't learned about it yet and I don't think we have it here in the UK).

JD and Max said...

Hi Asta - gosh, we were SO excited when you visited our blog! We just had to dash right round to say hi!

Miss Mayzie is wonderful isn't she? She's making such a difference, we are quite smitten with her and we know our FH (female human!) has totally fallen for her too!

We love making new blog friends and we can't wait to follow your adventures! This is a lovely tribute post - we should never forget what has been given for us all.

We hope you stay cool, we can't wait to visit again soon! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

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

Asta...it's Babystan here...

I thought you said there was cake? Like a hooge cake for us to eat, frosted in red,white and blue buttercream frosting??

Um...I see an empty cake server...

Where is the cake?

Is that somehow related to the fact Lacie's big backside is floating like an innertube?

Musta been a lot of butter in there...usually her bum sinks like a rock...



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


Oh my...now I feel better...

Asta, that cake was delicious...didn't you get a piece? What in the world are you sobbing about?? So Scruffy and Stanley didn't get any cake...(Lacie hiccups DEL I CAKE LEE). It's not like it'll kill them...

Frankly, I think they both could use a few less calories...

Now dry your eyes...you are a pawfect hostess...

Sunshade said...

What great Memorial Weekend you guys had. Did your BFF Lacie eat too much or was it because of the new *ahem* procedure that she had done that she seemed to be sinking during your swim???

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
