So nice to see pictures of your dear Grandma, Asta. My Parental Unit toasts to her late mother on her birthday as well, which is July 8th-she would have been 97, so it appears that our two Grandmas are close to the same age...

And congrats on your award!!!
Parental Unit is busy loading her pictures of Carson...
coming soon.

Your buddy,

AFSS said...

We are very cross with Mommy she never got around to entering us but we thinks all the winners had exceptionally good photos and we are glad they got their beans to enter them. WE really loved the picture of you in the swimsuit.

We thinks your Mom looks like Gwammami. She looked very glamorous and happy in the photographs.

Congratulations on your award Asta!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Concats on your award. I voted for you too, sissy!

Your grandmama was a beautiful and glamourous lady. Now we know where Mommi got her looks and style.

Too bad it doesn't work in this family. Gran was an elegant lady, still is. SS? She is a mess.

Lorenza said...

Happy Birthday to your Grammy!
Sure she was a beautiful lady.
Thanks for sharing her with us!
Congratulations on your award!
Kisses and hugs

ps. I hope your eye is getting better!

Chef said...

Oh Asta, your Gwammami is beautiful and wonderful - just like your Mommy. And I'm sure she'd be very, very impressed with you, not just because you're such a sweetheart but because you make her girl so happy!

Did I tell you what a wonderful time my Mama had at the DWB party? We tried to leave a comment here last week but couldn't, so she said to say thank you to you and your Mommy for being such gracious hostesses. She said she loved playing ball with you and you are as cute as a fluffy little button!

That is a beautiful award too. Congratulations!

Big slobberoochies!

Inky and Molly said...

What a beautiful grandma you have. And would ya look at the hunk of man she married? No wonder you are the most beautiful princess with such good genes in the family.
Kiss your mama for us please!

Chef said...

Hi Asta. It's me again - Chef. I just read your post about your eye boo-boo. I hope you're all better now and no, you are not a baggydog at all. I have lots of wrinkles but that's because of my breed but you don't look old. No way. So take care of your eye, k?


WFT Nobby said...

Oh Asta, you do have the worlds most elegant Gwammommi (And handsome Gwammpapa). Good looks clearly run in the family (although we are not quite sure about how the heredity thing works between humans and their dogs).
Toodle pip!
