Is having Lacie as a BFF Dangewous? and an impawtant Bawk it Fuwawd

Many of you have suggested that my BFF Lacie is a bad inflooence on me
NOT SO!!!!! Pewish the thought.

She is fun and a sweet giwlie at heawt.

OK,OK, I admit, we do seem to wind up in a few compwomising sitooations and at times have to be bailed out of jail, but I do meet the most intewesting pups thwoo hew.
She knows soo many boyz it's amazing.
Don't know how she does it.
Must be hew spawkling pawsonality and wit and of couwse hew divine figoowe and fashion sense.

Anyway, I will stick by hew no mattew what.


This mowning we did wake up to a wathew alawming newspapew awticle..I had no idea umm, I guess someone saw us, but I must admit we had a gweat deal of fun and it was all so eh ducational, what wif Bewtie, and Ewic and Awchie all giving us such wondewful lectoowes about English histowy and geology  and stuff

(do go see Lacie's bloggie fow the details)

hewe is a cleawew pictoowe of pawt of the awticle...honestly, you'd think we did something wong...It's slandew (calling us "tewwowists" and I'm contacting my solicitow immediately..
(thank dogness Ewic squawe had con ections to get us out of the slammew, hehehehe)
all's well that ends well, I always say




 Now to show you we awe not all about being Shelfish and fun, I'd like you to please wead this and leave a comment to help assistance doggies!

“It’s Good to Give…This Season!” 
What better way to celebrate the holiday season then through Bark It Furward, a program created to raise awareness and funds for Canine Assistants, a non-profit organization that trains and provides service dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities and the Milk-Bone® brand’s long-time charitable partner since 1997. For nearly 20 years, Canine Assistants has provided 1,000 service dogs to people across the country, giving them the chance to have more independent lifestyles.


Many people in need of a service dog depend on Canine Assistants to pay for the lifelong care of the dog. Without the help of any government funding, Canine Assistants relies on the generosity and private donations made by philanthropic partners, like Milk-Bone®, to help pay for the training of these special needs dogs. In an effort to help care for and train more assistance dogs for recipients across the country, Milk-Bone® is asking you to rally around Canine Assistants.

Bawk It Fuward was created by Milk-Bone® brand to educate others about the inspiring work being conducted by Canine Assistants. By joining the Bawk It Fuward movement, you can help raise awareness and much needed funds to provide assistance dogs for people with disabilities.


So for evewy comment left on my bloggie through January 4th, Milk-Bone® will give Canine Assistants ONE WHOLE GWEEN PAPEW! Can you believe it? That’s all you have to do. Just leave a comment on this postie and Canine Assistants gets gween papews. Sewiously! How supew easy is that?
So what awe you waiting fow? Get commenting!



Canine Assistants® is a non-profit organization, founded in 1991, which trains and provides service dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities or other special needs. In addition to physically assisting those with disabilities, Canine Assistants service dogs are instrumental in removing many of the barriers faced by the disabled in today’s society.
Service Dogs
Canine Assistants service dogs assist children and adults with physical disabilities or other special needs in a variety of ways. Some of the tasks the dogs perform include turning lights on and off, opening and closing doors, pulling wheelchairs, retrieving dropped objects, summoning help and providing secure companionship. While all of these functions are vitally important in helping a person obtain greater freedom, perhaps the most impressive gift the dogs provide is social, rather than physical, in nature. The dogs eliminate feelings of fear, isolation and loneliness felt by their companions. One Canine Assistants recipient made the value of this gift quite clear when asked by a reporter what she liked most about her service dog. Immediately, she responded, “My dog makes my wheelchair disappear.”
Most Canine Assistants service dogs are born, raised and trained at the Milton, Georgia facility, while some are occasionally adopted from local organizations or breeders. The majority of the service dogs are retrievers, including both Golden Retrievers and Labradors.
Companion Dogs
Like service dogs, companion dogs also serve to assist children and adults with physical disabilities or other special needs. Companion dogs work primarily in a recipient’s home, assisting with tasks around the house and more importantly, contributing to the emotional well being of the person.
Seizure Response Dogs
In addition to service dogs and companion dogs, Canine Assistants also trains and provides seizure response dogs for certain recipients. As with some of the service dogs, these dogs are adopted from various organizations and selectively screened for personality, temperament and general health. Following general training, seizure response dogs are trained to perform one of the following behaviors, depending on the recipient’s need: remain next to the person during the course of a seizure, summon help in a controlled environment or retrieve a phone prior to the seizure when indicated by the recipient. Certain dogs may even develop the ability to predict and react in advance to an oncoming seizure once they are placed with their recipient.


Okay, awe you done weading now? Then leave me a comment! Um, pwetty please?


Thank you sweet fwiends
smoochie kisses

George the Lad said...

Asta, thats very royal to stick by your friends, we all need some fun, so what, no dog got hurt and Stonehenge is still standing!!!
If we all stick together we can sort it out ;)
See Yea George, that is suffering from a bad headache, I just hope it wasn't Lacied!!!

Frankie Furter said...

Well of course you stick by your furends. That is why we all love you so.
How was the food in the.. Puppy Pokie???? I hope they didn't make you two wear MATCHING stripes.

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

Hmm...ya mean THAT WASN'T A DREAM?? Lacie giggles and picks at a ruffle on her purple negligee...and this one isn't flannel....so

WE MADE THE TIMES???!!! Oh, that just rocks...can you imagine how this will increase my exposure...er um no pun intended...

Speaking of exposure...I got that peemail from Mango...what's this...??

The VERY FIRST TIME I GOT ON A NYC subway with you, you told me to take off my pants...that when in New York, this was PROPER. I believe the term you said was "MAN DA TORY to weeemove one's er pants"....

And I so wee member wondering if it was so MAN DA TORY that you left yours on EVERY SINGLE TIME, and you always seemed to have an attack of BROWN KITE US and coughed like a mad dog.

So in terms of whom is negatively influencing whom??????????

I'm just sayin'...

Kisses,

Lacie with her Drawers On For Once...
Hmm...I don't think that came out the right way....

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hi, Asta. Guess everyone else knows where to find Lacie's blog. When we clicked, it said no such blog. Your link is - http://holiterriers.blogspot.com/

We had to google it and first came across a Holy Terrier blog that made us cry because both the beautiful terriers had left for the bridge. Finally we found Lacie. She's here -
http://holyterriers.blogspot.com/

Did you really get arrested just for playing games?

mayziegal said...

You know, I gets told ALLLLLL the time that my BFF Puddles (you mighta heard of her) is a bad influence. Well, isn't that just about the ker-aziest thing you ever heard? She's no more of a bad influence on me than your BFF Lacie is on you. I mean, think of how BORING life would be without them! If it wasn't for Puddles, I might not have ever discovered Cheetos!

And that Stonehenge thing - sheesh! Those peoples are just wacky. They need to learn how to speak good old American. I mean, everybuddy knows it's pronounced "terrierist" and not "terrorist."

Asta, we all know that Lacie is really a sweetheart. She and Puddles put up a good front but deep down we know they are just little dolls.

Great cause you are Bawking It Fuward for - here's some more green papers.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

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

This newspaper article reminds me something about the tower of Pisa when we all went to Italy. Oh, never mind. You are not bad and neither are your friends not if you want to bark it forward. You will be helping many. I will tell all my friends in my email about this and hope they stop buy to comment too. I will be back!!

♥MONA + MOMMY TOO♥ said...

What a wonderful cause. Hope you get lots of comments.

I think Laci is a good friend to have!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh, Asta. I just hate it when mean people say mean things about Lacie. Or anydoggie or anybody else who is so misunderstood. I know the truth about her. She was so sweet and kind when Jakey and I visited. Nothing like the reputation she is purported to have. Not at all. The media (and some others) just look for sensational stories. And create them if they don't already exist. Zheesh.

Poor Lacie. (But I have a question. Why did she say such mean things to you? Now I'm totally confused.)

Anyhow. We all know your good hearts and intentions. Your post about the comments and green papers for Canine Assistants is just one little example. (We hope they get lots of money and are happy to help with our comment.)

Now. It's time to go see Lacie's side of the story.

Pee esS. Watch our blog. We hope to share some exciting news soon!

Love,
Your 'doptive sissie Fergi (and the rest)

Noah the Airedale said...

Lacie, a bad influence.... Never. Just because the Volvo is a near right off and the B&B a disaster zone I will not hear a bad word said about my mate Lacie. She's a gem!
Right Asta?

Ps. Hope they get lots of green paper

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Asta, you and Lacie just go together - you know like the horse and carriage!
We loved you all coming to the UK although confess we were a little worried about all those terriers in the UK at one time.
You do seem a little, how shall we say this, highly strung!!!
It is no wonder you ended up in the jail!
Well since the students protest in London the authorities are a little less tolerant of youthful exuberance and you are all certainly exuberant!
Sporting a college scarf unfortunately does draw attention!
Thank dog Eric came to the rescue.......he is a quick thinking terrier for sure.

Good work by Milk Bone - we will have to leave more than one comments or are there rules about that!
We do need more and more of those green papers!!!
Much love

Miss Asta,
Is it possible that you have a little beast inside of you. I cannot think of any other explanation for your continued association with that hell cat.

We would love to leave you a comment. There is nothing better than the canine assistants. I just one on the Today program that can recognize seizures in a child. They are wonderful animals.

Loved the story about taking a Big Group Pee over London!

The way some of those Humans in the British Govt. have been acting of late, Daddy says they certainly deserve it! ;-D

Asta darling I would have commented anyway, but knowing it is for a good cause is even better. Thank you for your lovely comments that you left on my blog when I was poorly, I am getting better I think, but I felt better immediately I read your good wishes.

ZOOLATRY said...

Ahem, well, we may be "kitties" but we are woos-in-baa-clothing somedays! And we always are generous in offering our woo cousins, Dio & Willow, a Milk Bone (or two or three) when they come to visit. Both are rather LARGE woofies, so it tends more often to be three Milk Bones! We presume they are quite good, as they're gone in the proverbial New York Minute! Happy Asta New Year!

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie, Zeek said...

Hey Kousin Asta,
What a great thing to raise the green papers. We hope they get lots of them to help out.

Now, we think there might have been some outrageous photos of Lacie during our weekend trips, cause our puter crashed while Mama was trying to develop the photos, hehehehe! She was SOOOOO MAD! We think we have everything running right on the puter now. So hopefully we'll have our pics soon. Have a great week!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde wonders if they are under the wire because they are also service animals. Da Boys help keep their mom from doing too much since she has fibromyalgia & chronic myofascial pain. Service companions ROCK!!

what a very nice thing to do, Asta! Hope you raise lots of those green papers!

Momo and Pinot said...

Happy New Year sissy Asta!

You and Lacie are best friends forever!!

We're glad you mention about this organization for good good cause. Those doggies and humans are very hard workers to help humans who need helps. By coincident, we just posted concers about humans who deal with fake service animals. Very sad fact.
