New furiends are the bestest! I hardly ever gets to go to cool places like that. You are so lucky! Thanks for the tips about those abandoned bags and purses.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

You are very friendly. I think you are correct about training humans. They are easy to train. If you want to come to Atlanta, I will play with you.

OMD...firstly, in that first video WERE YOU THE ONLY ONE NOT FROZEN? All the other canines looked like they'd been playin' freeze tag...sheesch...

Now Darling, who IS your new hairdresser? Oh my...you are the squarest dog...and your furnishings....so thick..honestly, I think your leggies are just like a foxie gettin' weady for Westminster....

NO NO, I'm not sayin' they're fat...not many terriers have thick luxious fur on their legs...

Scruffy shaves his...sheesch...

Now, I'm a bit upset tonight...have you been to Eric's blog? OMD...it's ugleeeeeeeeeeeeeee....what he did to my stuffie I sent him...horrid...shocking....

The best part about today...both Stan and Scruff have REA so we got boiled beef and rice for dinner...worked for me...


Lacie Hot Crossed Buns...with extra frosting...

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

Asta...the window was Scruffy's fault...I had the rudder, but he had the brake...


And I have fat furnishings too....er that might not have been the right thing to say to a girlie dog with whom I'm in lo

er um well



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


You have not replied to me regarding the twin's names. This makes me think you don't remember...


Your loving Gilbert

Sierra Rose said...

Hi Asta!!! Keep the parkie pawty going, ok pal!!! :) Keep that ball a rollin'! At one of our parkies that we don't frequent much, the hoomans come in texting...phoning...texting....and continue the entire time.... We gotta keep those hoomans payin' attention!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Martha said...

Hi Asta, we loved your videos. You had such fun at the dog run. We were impressed by your technique for training humans!
They seem to pick things up quite well ....... apart from the last human - that seemed to take a little longer!
We loved seeing you walk so smartly and briskly - almost like a hospital matron very busy with her business....!
Martha and Bailey xxx

Dexter said...

Miss Asta! I really enjoyed seeing you in action. That one human, though, she was kind of hard to train, huh? I would stick to the fast learners.


Unknown said...

Asta! I just loved watching your videos. You look so happy to be playing with your furrends and their humans!


tula monstah said...

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Asta that is a grrrrreat Hooooman Training Center there. You did a grrrreat job of showing us your training tips too.
Hey... it won't be long until the T-giving Day Parade. Do you get to go there for that?
My mom and dad did that once.

George The Lad said...

So gald you had a good meal out on your dads birthday, belated birthday wishes to him, it was nice of them to go to a place you could be with them.

Agatha and Archie said...

Daisy said...

Asta, you are a true doggie ambassador; wherever you are, doggies and human-types have fun!

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

Looks like this is a win win place for the furries and the mommies. You all can run and play together while the mommies visit. Good idea if you ask me.

Piappies World said...

You really are a very friendly and sweet pup and we are not surprise at how easy it is for you to have friends and meet new ones along the way.

They all seem nice and fun to be with and we hope that you get to play zoom zoomies with them too.

My Sweet Astaroni,

If you ask me, that first video ended just when it was getting to the good part. Looked to me like you were winding up for some colossal bitey face or even some snasslin! I could tell that the uninformed hoomans in the background were getting all antsy with the ramped up doggie behavior.

You definitely need to spend more time with my girl. She could use some major training, although you may have to use treats with her. She has a MAJOR sweet tooth. Actually, she has an everything tooth, come to think of it.

Goober love & juiciest of goob smooches,

Anonymous said...

Lovely pics and video, Asta -- but you've got to cut those hoomans some slack. They can't socialize properly because their noses don't work right, so they've got to sit around and chitchat instead.

Eric said...

Hey Asta sweet pea. You have all those dogs and leggeds at your bark and ball. Smart girl and yapping of smart you're looking smashingly square and your beard ..yummers...you must be able to keep treats in there for later.

Can't think why Laciedevils food cake is so mad at me. Crickey I was worried I'd eaten her. Thats caring and sharing right?

Wiry love square sweet pea. Ewicxxx

Oh, Asta! You are most definitely the hostess with the mostest! I luv how you make everybuddy feel right at home. And even giving the humans jobs to do so they won't feel left out. Gosh, you should write your own Miss Manners book or something!

Wiggles & Wags,
