I dwag Mommi back to the pootew and celebwate Duffy's Biwfday

Deew Fwiendses..It's been ages since i talked to you and it made me so sad not to know how all of you awe.

I had a big talk wif Mommi and said I undewstand that things awe hawd fow hew and Daddi wight now, but I miss my fwiends  who have all wallied awound us and send theiw love and good wishes and awe twying hawd to help us out of ouw mess. So  she said, she would  help me blog as much as she could

Yestewday was my baby bwofuw Duffy's second Biwfday, and although Mommi won't go out of the house (hew eye is still a mess and she doesn't want to be seen by othew hoomans)
we asked him and his Mom Auntie Kawen to come ovew to celebwate
Duffy, being a shy type couldn't believe it was all fow him
I whispewed my good wishes in his bootiful eaws
and then he saw the fantastic cawd i had witten him-the cawd is most bootiful and was designed by Ewic's squaweMom 
(Duffy is  vewy conscious of  awt and design and was bowled ovew by this bootimous cawd)
hehehehehe, I know this looks like some stwange  six-legged,two-headed squawe dog, but it's ackshually, Duffy and I bof sampling the yummies fwom auntie Kawen't hand
it's Pwo Shoo Toe and melon  twust me, it's fantaboolous!!!!
well, that whetted ouw appetite, so we asked auntie Kawen to pick a pizza to be delivewed fow a second couwse
tah dah!!!!
we needed a little west aftew that, hehehe
but then I discovewed a most delicious smell coming fwom the top of the piano,and asked Duffy to come help me figoowe out what it was    
it was a scwumptious cake auntie Kawen baked fow Duffy's Biwfday!!!
it had Cawwots and Peamut Buttew and cweam cheese!!! YUMMMMMMM , plus it was gowgeous and had these soopew buffulo sticks (ow something)all awound

I tested the fwosting to make suwe it was good enuff to eat fow Duffy, hehehehehe
sadly, the pawtions wewe tiny(something about me having gained a pound in the last six momfs..well, if I told you how much Mommi has gained , she wouldn't be too thwilled , I can tell you, and yet she keeps eating)
Duffy made a special wish fow all doggies to be safe and happy and fow motowcycles to disappeaw fwom awound whewe he is( he is vewy scawed of the noise they make)
Since he didn't weally like the Pwo Secko I offewed him befowe, I thought I would give him a mowe manly bwew
(I had put this aside fow a special occasion..it was given to me by my sweet Jake and Fewgie bwofuw and sissie when they visited a few weeks ago)
he became quite silly aftew that..
Happy Biwfday my sweet baby Bwofuw Duffy!!!!!!!!!!
Again, I would like to thank all of you, my twoo fwiends, who awe making Mommi and Daddi not lose hope and awe giving us the help and couwage to keep going.
I will twy to come awound and visit in the next few days..Please know you awe always in my heawt!!!!! and nevew out of my thoughts.
smoochie kisses

Hi Asta!

So glad you had a nice visit and some goodies with Duffy. Mom has been in your Dad's situation before so she knows what it's like.. Keep their spirits up the best you can, it's a tough job market out there.
Oh, and Mom's trying to lose some weight but she's old, it's hard! ;)

PS. Mummy says please could you say hello to Auntie Karen, she loved meeting her when she was in NY.

Martha said...

Hi Asta
Thank goodness you are there to remind your mom of her priorities.
Of course she has to blog and stop worrying!
We loved your post and felt as though we were right there at the party with you and Duffy.
We could almost taste that cake it looked so good.
Of course we were a little worried about Duffy drinking....but well it was his birthday.
We join him in his wish to make noisy motorbikes go away - we hate them too.
Tell your humans that we are thinking of them but they have to try and be like us dogs ...... one day at a time!

Hey sissy! Seeing all the pichures of the celebration made me happy all over again. Those eatables were fantastical weren't they. Thanks again for the very special birfday party.

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

Whoosh...what beach should you and I escape to, Asta...Stan thinks we should go to Cape Cod...he needs a fur trim and he's way too hot for any southern destinations...

Oh, my Love Tunnel has been such a hit...Mumsie had to buy a new welcome mat, cuz the old one got worn out. Honestly, the homeless dogs inside there soooo appreciate my efforts to run that little soup kitchen...I am just so um...PHIL AND THROP IK.....

Kisses dear girlie...

And I know of a motorcycle we can steal the tires off if Duffy wants a new chew toy...

XXOO Lacie Cakes

Mumsie mumbled somethin' bout buyin' another cake tomorrow and eatin' all of it again...waz up with that....

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta. Sissie. We KNEW you'd be the one to boost Auntie Ami's and Daddi's spirits. You have an important job ... and you are very good at it. Knowing you are there to deliver all your love helps us to feel confident that all is in good hands.

Seeing all of you made us happy for Duffy (Happy Happy Birthday, Duff) and happy for your family (celebrations ALWAYS brings smiles and good feelings. But it made us a little sad. We miss you. Lots. More than we can express.

So. Do us a favor. OK? Curl up next to Auntie Ami. Get Daddi to hold you close and cuddle you. Give some smoochie kisses. Lots of them. And remind them of when we were there. 'Cause we'd like to be delivering those things ourselves.

Consider yourselves loved by us.

Thanks for getting your mommi back on the pooter. And keep up the good work. You are the BEST medicine and therapy. We just KNOW it.

Peppy Sheppys said...

OMD! What a fantastic burpday party! Duffy is most lucky. We were especially interested in the Pro-shoe-toe and melon. NOMNOM. I'm sure you both did a great job of cheering up your apes who are most in need of cheer! Huzzzah!

Otis & the Peppy Sheppys.

Eric said...

Asta sweetie pea! I'm so wagging you dragged Mommi back to the pooter. Dogs, love and laughter are the bestest medicine I know of and lookie what there is here on your blog.....squillion of all that bestest stuff for you three!

Loved your pawty for Duffy, it looked smashing apart from the smidgen of cake you got. NOT FAIR. Brother Duffy- isn't he's a perfect square? Handsome too, must run in the family. (You are specially pretty in your photos) Give Duffy some Terrier Trouble Two birthday wishes from me!

Big smackeroonie kisses for you and Mommi and Daddi. Eric xxxx

JD and Max said...

Hi Asta,

Thanks for sharing Duffy's birthday with us, we really enjoyed the celebrations and were quite exhausted by the end of the post!!

We know you're going through tough times at the moment - FH had so many days of puffy eyes herself when she got the big R at the end of 2008 so she knows exactly how you feel. She says she knows sometimes it can be hard to believe but things will get better - hang in there! We're sending all our pawsitive thoughts your way.

A Happy Late Birthday to sweet Duffy. I am so glad that your mommie got up your birthday post about Duffy's party. I bet that even cheered her up a little, how could seeing your sweet faces do anyting but that.
I am thinking of your folks and praying that things will work out. I have heard that some have said that when one door closes another opens up. I know that doesn't help right now but I know in my heart that your folks will be more than OK when this is said and done.
Sending head butts to all at your place.
