Thank yoos and wemindews

Deew Fuwwiends, Thank you fow all youw good wishes and encouwaging wowds about my eyes..I knew you'd be able to make me feel bettews.
I'm having the salve put in fow anothew seven days, so I look kind of gweasy and icky, but it feels bettew.
Mommi is investigating the suwgewy pawt, to see if we can somehow affowd it, it's pwetty obvious that this will be a wecuwwing pwoblem and she doesn't want my cownea to get damaged

Now do you wemembew when I asked you to submit pictoowes to my sissie kitty Gwacie fow a contest a while ago?
It was fow doggies and kitties , but i think the only doggie othew than me who submitted a pictoowe was my BFF Lacie 

(doesn't this pictoowe of me and some of my fwiends  playing in the watew cool you off?)

Anyway, the winnew  will be announced on Gwacie's bloggie whewe she is also having an auction

Thewe awe items fow bof Doggies and kitties , so please twy to go and bid if you can

go hewe pleez

This auction promises to have something for everyone thanks to our wonderful furries that have donated items for you to bid on. All money raised will help Maxie pay for his vet bills. These bills were incurred due to a vet that made a horrible mistake. Our photo contest for Maxie was a great success with many photos being submitted and many voting for their favorite photos. The winners of the summer photo contest will be announced on July 25. The winners in each category, there are four, will be given gifts custom picked by me, Gracie. Head over to the auction blog and see what great items are waiting for you. Again, thanks to all who have helped with their donations of money or items. 

Gracie, Head Auctioneer.

We are behind so we are so sad to read about your eye problems - Barney has eye issues too so don't feel bad - he gets a lot of greasy looks from the eye goo (and Gracie still loves him anyway). We are sending over lots of get better purrs and prayers.

And we saw your entries at the contest when we voted (we can't reveal our votes of course) and we were surprised there weren't more doggie pics! We didn't enter (we had send a donation to Maxie about a week before it was announced) but we did donate a bracelet to the auction - we are excited that you are letting all the doggies know about it too!

I'm gonna go there and check out the auction stuffs next.
YOU are such a gooood furend to everybuddy!!! THANKS!!! It is a pleasure knowing you!!!

We're are so glad to hear that your eye is better. When Java had that problem, the doctor removed an encapsulated malignant cyst and once it healed, he never had any more problems. But the vet did warn us that it could come back.

Our Mom loves auctions so we'll be off to see if there are anythings we might "need".

Two more sleeps until your sissy and brother will be here - we can hardly wait!!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We hope things go well soon for your eye, Asta. It would be so nice not to have to have that surgery. We have been doing our best to help Shelby with our crossed paws and a few green papers. So many out there in need of help. As you say, even a little helps.

Please tell me that I was sooo, I don't know what, busy and I didn't even know that my sissie was having eye problems. Arghhhhh! I hope the stuff they put in your eyes helps and the surgery, oh no. But if this will make the problem go away then it must be. I will keep you in my prayers that your little eyes are doing better each day. I am sooooooo sorry that I didn't know what was gong on.
Thanks for promoting the auction and photo contest. The winner is announced on the 25. There is an awards ceremony for all of the winners that I am working on right now. It is so exciting!

Okays now bouts your eye thingy problems. We know ALL to well bouts da expense. My Brudder's back surgery was almost $3000 green papers and dat was a few years ago so there is no telling how much it would cost now. But you could thinks bout looking into Care Credit dat some vets use. Not surss fthe us it where you is though.Don't worry, we'll see you through dis furiend.


Angel Ginger Jasper said...

I am so glad your eyes are feeling better. Mum had a spaniel that had eye problems and eventualy had a small operation which seemed to sort out the problem. I hope yours can be sorted without an operation. Love and healing purs Asta.. GJ xx

Hi Asta! Oh, I'm very much glad your eye is getting betters, even though it's kinda goopy. I think it's very nice of you to reminds everybuddy abouts trying to help out other doggies and kittehs less fortunate than us. Gosh, we're lucky, aren't we, Asta?

The Daily Pip said...

Hi Asta,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing Molly well! Hopefully, she will be OK. She is my best bloggie doggie friend!

Looks like you live in NYC!!! We live in Chicago, but my mom LOVES NYC.

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: I will check out the auction, too.

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
I hope that your eye is feeling better. Please do not be concerned about your looks, OK? We love you even if you have a weird ass stinking red oozy... oh, wait, I meant to say, that we love you no matter what.

Now, about that swimsuit. I think it is very modest and most becoming. Not like the huzzy suits favored by your BFF.


JD and Max said...

Hi Miss Asa,

Thanks for your kind words about JD's paw, and also for our sensible comments about terriers. We THINK our FH has FINALLY got it, that we're always going to be looking for adventuers and so the odd scrape along the way is just going to be expected, he he he!

You are such a kind girl Miss Asa - we wish there was more we could do to help these pups that have been through it through no fault of their own. FH is trying to think of a fundraising idea to help Shelby, perhaps an auction. She's really going to put her thinking cap on over this weekend.

Have a lovely weekend Miss Asta - schnauzer snuggles, JD and Max.

George The Lad said...

Hi Asta just catching up on your blog, so sorry you have a poorly peeper, I'm sure the salve will help, I'll send some get well vibes for yea that should help.
But I have to say what a doll you look in your swim wear, and of cause the rest of the gang.
I'll go and take a look see at the auction.
See Yea George xxx

Golden Samantha said...

Oh.... dear Maxie and Shelby... not to mention your own eye issues, poor Asta! We know about Shelby and have been over there, but will visit Maxie right now. Thanks for telling - I guess we'll be doing some voting too heheh! You look gorgeous as always, Asta! BTW, LOVE your backround - reminds me of the Adirondacks! Beautiful and serene...
Big Hugs and Hope your eyes feel a bit better.

Have a nice and relaxing saturday!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Asta! So happy that you don't have a corneal ulcer. I had to wear a cone for so long when I had mine!! Hope you are feeling 100% again soon.

Bobby said...

We are so pleased your eye is a lot better. I think surgery will be expensive, so we hope it will not come back again.

Simba and Jazzi said...

So glad to hear your eye is better. Enjoy your weekend.

Simba and Jazzi xx

Tucker said...

My paws are crossed for a perfect recovery of your eye.

Mack said...

We are so glad your eye is doing better. We hope you don't ever have to go through that again!

And mom says if everyone will give a little bit when they can, that helps SO much!


Cheyenne -Millie said...

We hope your eye gets better! Monty here had 2 eye surgeries for detached retina! If it hadn't been for helps from Grandma mom couldn't affords it! We hopes that all goes well.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dear Asta,
Whenever you ask us bloggers to help a friend in need we always respond to it enthusiasly.
About your eye surgery, please let us know when, we'll go ahead and cross our paws now even during our dindin, our mom will handfed me.

Joe Stains said...

So sorry to hear about your eyes. I cannot believe you need an eye lift either, but the doctors know best. We are crossing paws all over the place for everydog and we know they would do the same for us.
