Nobuddy Told Me It Was Wong

I had a vewy busy was Daddi's Biwfday on Sunday and we wanted to celebwate all weekend long..
Satuwday mowning we all got on the subway to go up to Centwal Pawk fow a special Doggie Countwy Faiw. 

 I had to stay in my twavel bag while on the subway( to pwotect all the nice hoomans fwom me)
It's only five stops, so it only took about ten mimutes to get thewe

it was a gowgeous fall day
We got out at 72nd stweet
Look whewe we awe as soon as we entew the pawk
( Agatha and Awchie, this is fow youw PLs)

while at the pawk, Mommi thought it would be a gweat idea fow me to get my canine good citizen cewtificate 
I wemembewed the sign I saw eawliew,
so I stawted getting excitewed thinking of all the things I could do  if i had that piece of papew
I could get a highew degwee and visit hoomans in hopsitals ow nuwsing homes and kiss them and make them feel bettew..I think I can do this
then weality was not to be...............

watch my smilebox fow mowe pictoowes of this day

I took the test..
thewe wewe ten items I was tested on
I sat, I stayed,I didn't bawk, I walked in a cwowd of doggies and hoomans and didn't lunge ow twy any funny business, I didn't move when she wattled the fence, ow dwopped hew clip boawd on puwpose,I let hew handle me wif a comb, and touch all my feets
I was supposed to go up to the test doggie and natoowally when I got thewe , I kissed him and I did the same thing to the testing lady
the lady twied to pwetend she liked me and then
she flunked me(that was the only thing she took points off fow)..KISSES, I ask you???????????????
Nobuddy  evew told me kissing was wong
Mommi had to console me..she said the test was wong, and I was wight and the bestest canine citizen in the wowld( but I didn't get a cewtificate ow a tag).BOOOO HOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOO

smoochie kisses


NAK and The Residents of The Khottage said...

What a great time woo had!

Thanks fur sharing it!

As fur the khyssing being wrong, there's a reason why I don't take that silli test!


Lorenza said...

Of course it was wrong, Asta!
I know everyone loves your kisses!
Don't worry! Your are the best!
Happy Birthday to your Daddi!
Kisses and hugs

Hailey said...

Asta!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! That lady was terribly WRONG and don't ever let her mistake get you down!!!! Never change your ways! We love you just the way you are. Please drop by my blog as I have something very special there for you!!!!

Hugs & smoochies!!! XOXO

doyle and mollie said...

all we can say is smmmmmoooooch away... your dadda is the luckest guy in the world to have two hot babes like you and your mamma - love away... your way... like butterflys... sweet & colourful...

Dexter said...

Miss Asta! That CGC test is really hard, you know and lots of dogs don't pass even though they are really good doggies. Momma had a therapy dog and she says they need to be very strict with the rules because you never know how the humans in the nursing homes and hospitals will react.

Fear not! You will be a good citizen by spreading your cheer around NYC. I bet everybody who sees you smiles.


Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

How could you not kiss them - that's your signature - smoochie kisses!!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Daisy said...

Asta, I think you should have gotten EXTRA points for kissing!

ps: I have a Sherpa carrier just like yours!

Gus said...

Daisy Gots it Right. Extra points for Asta Kisses. Send me that Lady's address and I will send her a scathing protest letter!

I can also testify that the old peoples I meet at FV LIKE my kisses, and I KNOW they would LOVE yours. (I eats foods with anchovies in it, even muzzer backs away sometimes.)

Lots of smooches to replenish your supply


Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Sorry for yelling, I couldn't help myself. You can come and kiss me anytime that you want to.

Hollie and Janie said...

That is just horrible!! Kisses equal love, which most people are in desperate need of, in my opinion! Mama had considered doing the class, so I could visit the kids in the hospital, but knew I would never be able to refrain from giving smoochies!!

Chef said...

Well I think it's just wrong, Asta!! You should have gotten a special award for your smoochie kissies. The world is a better place because of Asta smoochies !! But I'm glad you had such a wonderful weekend celebrating your daddy's birthday. Give him a big slobbery birthday kiss for me.


The Daily Pip said...

Kissing is never wrong. Poo poo on those judges! I love the pictures of you in Strawberry Fields! Didn't know you were a Beatles fan?

Your pal, Pip

Rudy said...

Well Asta we've never heard of such a thing! No kissing?? If that were the case I'd never have passed both the Canine Good Citizen and the Therapy Dog tests!
Go take it somewhere else and see what they tell you. Some people just don't like kissing -- I bet that tester didn't like kissing..


3 doxies said...

Oh Miss Asta...I understand dat you wanted to do dis CGC thing but....
You don't really needs a piece of paper dat say you is a good dog...we knows it already and we loves you!
Besides who da heck wants to follow rules day in and day out...BLAH!!!!!
Oh maybe dats just me...hehehehe!


Mack said...

If SUGARS are wrong...I don't wanna be right!!!!

Happy (belated) Birfday to your daddi - he is a Libra like my mom.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Happy Birthday to your Daddi - we hope you all had a nice day in spite of that silly human who didn't think kisses were important. You are still a good canine citizen in our eyes, Asta. And our Mom would love to get some kisses from you.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Fred said...

Dennis stole my comment! ;P How can your kisses be wrong? You are pawsome--Fred-certyfied.

Anonymous said...

WHAAAAT? I think that kissing is the number 1 ultimate trait of a good citizen, Asta! Gosh, that's just the ker-aziest thing I ever heard, ever! But don't worry, Asta. You don't need any special tag to be special to us!

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

First of all, your mommi looks fabulous...Mumsie adores her fur trim and color...frankly, I'd have stripped a bit more from the back, but she'd probably have bitten them....she looks like she's like twenty in those pix...Mumsie's eatin' a bunch of jelly beans...all her teef are gonna fall out...

As for that CGT...that's horse poop...puppycocker...sheesch...

I hold kissin' in the HIGHEST esteem...did I tell ya bout my date Sat. night? Oh but I undress er DIGRESS...

They shoulda given you extra points....Stan sez he's gonna go and let that lady test him and then he'll jump on her and sloober all over her with his rancid beard...sheesch...

Love you girlie,


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

Dear Myrna,

Oh my darling...I wanted to tell you that I enrolled Bertie in motorcycle classes. He seems a natural.

How are the twins? I don't remember their names. Any thoughts on that? HELP.

Your loving Gilbert.

Pee ess...can you tell Lacie to take that fur stole offa me; I'm allergic.

Barbara said...

Asta, that ain't right! Kisses are always correct! To heck with Good Citizen tests if kisses are wrong!

bbes tribe said...

No kissing!!! That is just wrong! We were visiting Hailey. Hailey is right - you deserve an award. She gave you a special award. Don't care what they said - you are a good citizen!!!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh Asta, that is so unfair. What stupid rules for that test. I think you are a perfect citizen. Kisses are good. (I guess they'd fail you for licking human's ears too? That's my favourite thing at the moment).
Toodle pip!

The Black and Tans. said...

Oh my goodness Asta, what silly rules.............. of course you are the bestest canine citizen! What a silly person!!!!!!!!!
We are speechless at the absurdity of the situation.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Tama-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette, Ollie said...

We agree, Asta. The test was WRONG! You are the best and they should have seen that. How can kissing possibly be wrong?!

Tommy (and purrs from The Chans)

Molly the Airedale said...

Terrier kisses are never wrong, Asta! What a stoopid test anyway! You stay exactly as sweet as you are!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

White Dog Blog said...

Asta, you darling, big hearted girl, if more Citizens gave kisses the world would be a much much better place! You are SO much more enlightened than that silly test. Don't stop giving smoochies...EVER!

Agatha and Archie said...

RIGGED IT WAS RIGGED I SAY....Archie says he is going to do some investigative reporting on this whole thing because there has been a lot of talk about that Judge being on the take. RIGGED I SAY RIGGED( I am wearing my expensive lawyers little dress with pearls as I say this so I can practice when we go to trial) PL1+2 say thank you for the pic.........Love A+A

AFSS said...

We agree the test was wrong. Kisses are good.

Inky and Molly said...

Lucky you fit into a bag like that. Somehow that wouldn't work for us.
Well done for doing the test. Never mind those people don't understand about kissing. Don't they know you about your European side? Certificate, shmificate. Who needs those anyway?!
Happy Birthday to your daddy!!
Big kisses, Inky and Molly

Inky and Molly said...

We have given you an award instead! Come on over and get it!!

Dewey Dewster said... did ya get inta that tiny bag fer even a few minutes? I ask That was really about that test ya took...I am sure that it was one big defective test....bein' flunked fer kissin' now that is just plain crazy...ya shoulda got a medal fer bein' the best kisser outta the bunch.....

Dewey Dewster here....

Unknown said...

first of all happy birthday to your pops. I know you all had a super weekend.
And kissing is so not wrong. It's how most good human citizens greet. I mean really. Well I'll admit. I took the test too and failed. Mom corrected me twice and I guess you can't do that... we flunkees are pretty darn good if you ask me

Oreo said...

I dont know you Asta, but my name is Jazzi. I think the lady was WRONG. Kissing is what we do best and expecially us terriers. Maybe you can take it somewheres else and then pass, it is worth a try, all they ca say is NO. You look nice and sweet.


Joe Stains said...

We were just posting while you were leaving a comment!! Tell your Daddi happy birthday from us out here in Arizona. We miss you Asta!!

The Thuglets said...

Asta thank you so much for your lovely message on ou loss of Ellie.

Looks like you had a fun day out.

Belated Happy Birthday to your Dad.

Don't worry Asta!! We think you are a great canine citizen. You can always take the test again! Who could possibly hate kisses?!!!

I would take this issue straight to the AKC board. Kissing should be acceptable!

Tee said...

There's something definitely wrong with the testing. How could kissing be wrong?? I'd report the lady to the aww-thorities if i were you!

Unknown said...

Awwh, poor Asta!

They obviously did not get da memo that da Asta 'signature'move is smoochie kisses!!!

I fur one think you are a pawsome Good Citizen!! You don't need da official piece of paper to prove it! You and your blog always makes us and da blogfurrends smile. That, my dear, is a VERY good thing! Don't be down....we loves you!


Princess Patches said...

We can't believe they took points off for KISSING!!! That should be one of the main jobs of a therapy dog! Sometimes, hoomans are just stupid! It does look like you had a good time, though!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Looks like you had a wonderful time. We agree with Khyra what is wrong with kisses?

I think that testing lady was a beastie! No real lady would fail someone as amazing, beautimous, and sweet as you dear Asta.

Don't let them dummie-heads ruin your day, you rock Asta & my mom person & me love you!

Loved the video! So cool. We're very sorry that your unbridled passion wasn't rewarded...that tester apparently is really cold and heartless!!!

Miss Asta, that sounds like a really fun outing! I'm sorry you didn't get your special certifiket and tag. Everyone should be glad to get smoochie faces!

Barks & Wiggles & Supportiv Luvs,


Koobuss said...

Oh no! Kousin Asta! How can that be? Kisses are not allowed? Then I would flunk for sure! Sheesh... Who made up those dumb rules?

You are a good Kanine Citizen to me.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

TwoSpecialWires said...

That silly (stoopid) lady has it all wrong. Kisses and hugs and sharing love are some of the most important things that someone can share. And, sadly, there are too few people who understand that (let alone practice it.) WE think you are the BEST city zen. And we are very proud that you gave that lady a kiss. (Even if she didn't maybe deserve one.) And the gall! She gave your mommi a business card? What a joke.

We love you Asta. And here's a big smoochie KISS. X. Just like you taught us!

Jake and Fergi xxoo

Unknown said...

Oh Asta - I'm so sorry to hear about that - that is so unfair!! I can't believe how they could be stupid. You definitely deserve Supreme Canine Citizen - especially for being so "friendly" with everybody! :-)

You definitely are the best and you don't need a certificate to prove it !
Love from Ollie and Bella

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Asta -

Happy Belated Birthday to your Dad!

Mama, Kaci and I believe it was totally unfair for that lady to flunk you because you give kisses.

Mama says it's a good thing that we have not taken a test like that. We would flunk BIG TIME because we LOVE to give kisses too.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
