We're trying to stay cool here, too, Asta, but it's tough to do! Does your fur ever get frizzy from the humidity?

Woowee! It MUST be hot if you're willing to gets into the shower to cool off! Buuuutttt - that really doesn't count as a bath, I don't think. It's just a little freshen-upper. Oh, and I didn't thinks you looked like a drowned rat at all!

Wiggles & Wags,

OMD....even your towel is orange. I bets your mom went out and bought orange towels just to match your collar. Okays, well that kinda be off subject so I continue now. Now, it's HOOOOOOOT heres too and da humidity is unbearable but you will NEVERS EVERS find me in a baff on my own free will....hehehe...it just ain't gonna happen girlfuriend.
You looks way betters than Brudder Albert afters a baff...hehehe!

PEES: Hows you mom's mouth? Is hers having that cadiver implant stuff?

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oooh, what's cool? The heat and humidity are high inside with the ac going so we know what you mean about wanting to get cool.

Martha said...

Hi Asta, it is so important for us girls to remain cool at all times.
We ourselves prefer muddy water holes but we understand life is so much more sophisticated in New York!
You do look a tad bedraggled when wet but you fluff up nicely.
Our mum looks a lot like that after her shower - she then has to blow dry her hair to look a little better.....only a little in her case!
love and kisses

It's 90 plus and hooomid here too. Our mom's hair gets wider and wider everytime she takes us for a walk. Since dogdad has been in San Juan the past few days, it's all up to her and she can barely get her head through the door anymore.

We cool off from the unexpected showers though and the wet grass. No baths so far. Stripping is in the cards though 'cause we have about two extra pounds of fur each. It seems to grow faster in the heat (or like mom's?).

Asta, sweetie, you are adorable even when you look like a "dwoned wat"!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Bocci said...

Asta, you look fabulous wet or dry-you're just that good lookin'!
And you look fab drapped in that orange towel-your color for sure!

Your buddy,

The Black and Tans. said...

Aaw Asta you look so gorgeous even when you take a shower. It is going to be hot here this weekend but not quite as hot as NY. Hopefully our pool in the garden will be filled up so we don't get too hot.

Stay cool Asta.

Molly, Taffy and Monty.

Molly the Airedale said...

This hot weather has been just awful, Asta! We need to find relief wherever we can get it! A bath sounds like a great idea right about now!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

the many Bs said...

oh Asta, we love those wet photos of you! you look so... welll.... um... very very cute!!!!!

we're so sorry that you and your moommi are hot. we wouldn't like that kind of weather either. we wish we could blow a cool breeze all the way to NY!

we were so happy to read that your mommi ordered an orange breakaway collar for you. if you just wear it when you are home alone, it will give your mommi and daddi peace of mind that you will be okay, no matter what kind of trouble you get into. our darn collars can get stuck on so many things and then we can't get loose and that's very very bad. but we need to wear our collars because they hold our ID tags! so that's why our human is a firm believer in the breakaway collars. she won't even let us wear bandanas unless she we are in her presence. silly human, but at least we are all safe.


Unknown said...

Oh Asta - that's the first time I've seen you having a bath! (or getting wet! hee! Hee!) But don't worry - I still think you look very lady-like! ;-)

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You looks cute wet! You are the perfect model for the towel!

I am scared of baths! Monty on the other hand gets all excited when mom fills the bathtub! He starts running backs and forth! But when he gets in he thinks it is torture!

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

Wow...we saw Asta in her towel!!!

Stanley looks impressed and Scruffy yawns...Asta is after all his sister, auntie, husband and cousin-once-removed...

Lacie on the other hand looks very interested...

Asta...your fur looks amazing..what kinda products did ya just use on it??? Huh????

Did you blow dry with a round brush or a paddle brush???


Do tell!



Lacy said...

w00fs, where is all ur pictures on ur sidebar..mama computer is not showing them...its been hot here too...baffs make u feels cooler.

Wyatt said...

So, do you shake real hard and make a big mess in the bathroom?
It takes our mom longer to clean the bathroom after the dog wash, than to wash the dog!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
That is the best way to stay cool!
My mom takes 2 showers a day now that is very hot. My problem is that she does not let me in the shower with her everyday! Hmmm....
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Sally said...

OOHHHHHHH - it is very 'Scorch-io' over here too! Yesterday D let me have an Ice Lolly - and it was nummy! Paddy has a cooling gel bed - you put it in the fridge and then it stays cool under his bed for hours - poor little guy. He sleeps a lot in this heat!

We are sending you cool vibes - ask your Mommi for ice cream - very soothing in this weather.

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
It must be super hot for you to agree to showing us your wee self looking a bit, well, disheveled. I hope it was worth it. No respite in sight from the hotness.


Mack said...

Now you are clean and fresh as a daisy!!

D.K. Wall said...

Not sure it would ever be so hot that we would not object to a bath. Just saying.

We're trying to stay coo too, but haven't exhorted to baths - yet.

Everybody knows that we dogs have the right to do things we usually don't like in special circumstances.

The orange towel looks quite nice with your coloring!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Not cool at all here, Asta. But we just stay inside where the a/c keeps us very comfy - we avoid baths at all costs. We love how cute you look in your orange towel wrap.

Eric said...

Aw Asta I'm sad you're all hot. Thats awful having to take a bath to keep cool.Your servant must fan you more. Meanwhile I'm working on an orange fan which you attach to your tail. The more you wig your wagger the faster the fan works. Very eco.Mom thinks she should patent it right now. Byeee.

Wiry love Eric xxxx

The Oceanside Animals said...

Glad you're staying cool, Asta! Maybe you can get the fire department to open a hydrant for you out front?

Clive said...


That sounds like very hot weather!

I think I may melt in NY next month! I hate baths / showers so hope the hotel has good AC!

take care

Golden Samantha said...

Owwww Asta - been hearing how hot it is back there - so sorry, especially with your mama not feeling too the wellies. And I know the humidity doesn't help either. So it looks like your bathie/shower helped some. All I can do is hope that the weather gets a wee bit better? Or... take more bafies?

We know what you mean about hot weather. We don't care for it either. Lucie hides under the bushes when we go out during the day.

Sorry about the bath. We don't like baths either.

Hope your weather cools down soon!

Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Lucia said...

Ciao bella Asta!

It is oppressively caldo, caldo, caldo here as well, mia amica, so what's a girl to do but cool off with a quick rinse!?! I must say, though, that I, Lucia, so love baths and bathrooms that when la mia ragazza can't find me in la casa, she usually only has to go check the bathtub because I am often curled up in it having a nice nap -- even if there's no water! I enjoy the cool feel of the porcelain and find it very refreshing on warm days. Heeeeeeee!!!

Tanti baci!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I'm closing my eyes!
It's once in a blogtime to see Asta getting wet in the bathtub.

TwoSpecialWires said...

'Bout the time you were getting your bath, Asta, Moma was bathing Chloe and Andy and showering me and Jake. You can imagine the flying frenzies around this house with four clean wet happy crazy dogs! Do you run and roll and get goofy? (It's the MOST fun!)

Just like you, trying to stay cool.
Fergi Sissie (and Family)

Pee esS. You look beautiful. Dry and wet.

Asta.....sweetie....you look adorable wet or dry!
