Pawfect Snow Day

Deew Fwiendses we'we having lovely soft snow fall again and I love going acwoss the stweet to the Hudson Wivew walk and check it out

the fweshest snow is along the awea whewe thewe is a kiddie playgwound..appeawantly, they don't come out to twample it ..gweat fow me, hehehehe

hewe's a video of me fiwst explowing that awea

then we keep walking souf towawds the tip of Manhattan Island
behind me you can see a bwonze Big apple..

behind me awe the apawtment houses neaw whewe I live

hewe is lovely deep snow to's pwistine..I'm the fiwst one to explowe it

I bet this doesn't seem like what you think manhattan looks like, but wemembew, this is the Gweenwich village pawt next to the's vewy special and I love living hewe

do you see all the snow falling on my face?

Mommi loves the way colows(even the faintest) look up against the snow..i just love the smells

we walked all the way down to the public doggie wun next to the we usually don't go thewe cause mommi doesn't twust stwange doggies and ownews who she doesn't know. She says she feels safe in the pwivate wun cause evewyone makes suwe no one fights, but since it was a snow day, we decided to see if maybe thewe wouldn't be too many doggies and then we could go to this pwetty one

We wewe in luck..thewe wewe only thwee doggies and they wewe soopew nice..especially the gweat big baby doggie called Titus.  He just bounced awound and was vewy vewy fwiendly.  Actually, I was the notty one..i stole the little doggies ball and mommi made me leave when I did it sevewal times..(something about bad mannews)

As you can see, this is a much pwettiew wun than the one I nowmally go to, but again, it's all about safety as faw as mommi is concewned and I have fun weathew it's pwetty ow not
You can see a tiny bit of the wivew beyond the big snow bank as we walk home

Ouw Apawtment is ahead  aftew the bend in the woad(this is actually a bicycle paf nowmally) on the wight side
In this weathew it's weiwd, cause no one is awound, and it's soopew quiet and feels you'we out in the middle of nowhewe..that makes mommi sowt of scawed(she's weiwd)

I had a most wondewful time
I hope all of you did too
smoochie kisses

Hey, that's my pal Titus! He lives in my apartment building. He was the cutest puppy - about my size when he was just 8 weeks old - with paws the size of soup bowls. Mom says she doesn't miss the snow at all (although she likes how the black ironwork in the Village stands out against the snow) but I wouldn't mind playing in it. Though I can't complain, a big empty beach is awfully fun!

Your pal,

Hi Asta-

I like the way you shake the snow off your nose....Oooo cold!!


P.S. Stanzie says, she likes your coat! :)

Frankie Furter said...

Asta... maybe if I had Long Legs... I could appreciate the snow like you do. You see the beauty and calm !!!

Jake of Florida said...

What fun!!! How kind of mommi to take you to the special run. New York in the snow when everything stops is a very special place. Our mom remembers walking down the middle of 5h Avenue one winter a zillion years ago during a major snowstorm.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Penny and Patches said...

You have definitely had a great snowday, Asta! We still have snow, too, but now it's crunchy because it rained on top of it! Our mom has been stuck in the house for 4 days! She finally went to WalMart today with a neighbor! She just wanted to get out of the house for a while!

Daisy said...

Asta, you look so happy and joyous playing in the snow!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We are having fun in our snow too, but we heard you got lots more. Hope you don't get all the frigid cold we have here now.

That run looks like a lot of fun. That big dog was so nice too. We love to watch you run all around.

rottrover said...

A very pretty girl on a very pretty day. We love seeing you out and about!

Gus said...

Oh my...the new header makes my doggie heart go pitty pattt...something about your big black nose so close to mine!


I hope you are having fun in the snow. Make sure you wipe your feeties when you go inside. Snow between the toes can make one a testy, ya know.


Barbara said...

It sure looks like you let loose with the zoomies the minute you got to the run! I sure wish I had as much fun as you do!

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Wow, that is a lot of snow. We have snow, but our snow is slippery. Andy really likes it, but I am not that sure about it. I have a snow suit. Mommy says I am a Diva.

Foley Monster and Pocket said...

Painter Pack said...

Teddy said...

What a peaceful view of Manhattan you don't normally see! I bet only the good people & doggies are out in the snow & cold, so you don't have to worry. That's great that you got a good run in the park.


Pepsi Bum said...

Hehe, looks like you had SnOw much fun, Asta! Looking very foxy sexy stylish too!


Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Snowy and Crystal said...

you look perfect in the snow Asta :)
Happy 2011 to you from me, my sister and Kat!


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

OH wonder I um wrecked the broom..MAN HATT TIN just looks totally different in the snow doesn't it???? I mean that dryer vent NEVER looked like that they opened the laundry room yet? You did some fast talkin' on that one...I'm sorry you kept sneezing from all that lint, but I'm SO GLAD you pulled me out. Did ya HAVE to get the boyz out...they coulda stayed in there...

That Mango puppy is you have his cell??? I so want to have a date with him...did you see how athletic he is????

As for your header pic, perhaps Mommi should give you a little more kibble with your vegetable soup?? You look rather petite...(Lacie's teeth are gnashing together, but she'd never admit her jealousy...)

Gotta go get the boyz's so snowy here and Scruffy's such an idiot....


Your BFF,


Mr. Pip said...

Hi Asta,

That's a lot of snow and it sure makes the city look pretty. My family (not me) were in NYC last weekend. They came home on Monday and just missed the snow.

Thanks for the tour!

Your pal, Pip

Fred said...

Great photos! You make New York look so magical!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh Asta, thank you so such for taking us all on a lovely tour around your corner of snowy Manhattan. I love seeing the different parts of the world where all my bloggie friends live. It seems that a well cared for pup can thrive in all sorts of different environments. And didn't you have fun bouncing around the run. I bet your new friends were envying your beautiful coat.

The Animal Doctor said...

Dear Asta,
Its our first time to see a video of you and we are surprised to see you doing zoomies! I guess the image of you as a darling fashionista, sophisticated and ladylike stucked in our minds. Nonetheless, its good to know that you enjoyed your walk with your Mommi. Thanks for "touring" us in your neighborhood. Take care always!

love, Scarlet

bbes tribe said...

Asta, Thanks for taking us with you on your walk in the snow. You look very fashionable in your pink coat. We like it. You are very cute. Enjoyed the pics of the river & all.
PeeEss: we like your header.& the pic of you.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Asta! Wow it is so pretty there - all the snow makes it seem more like a quaint little town, not a big city! It looks like it was a lot of fun to explore in too - and of course you looked wonderful out enjoying it!!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

It all looks quite magical, Asta!

Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with your Coffee) said...

Oh, Asta, what a walk you took us on. Truly, I felt like I was right there with you. The snow is beautiful, and I loved pretending that I was living in the city and walking a dog like city folks do.

(And I LOL'd when you said your human was scawed and then you said - she's weiwd.)

Very entertaining.

MoMo said...

Hey Asta sissy, you look beatuiful in that snow in your pink coat.

I really don't know how you bear going out in that cold.

My human cousin lives up stream by the Hudson River, in a place called Cold Spring. Have you ever been there? A very pretty place in Fall.

Sierra Rose said...

Asta we love this post! Winter-wonderland in a most spectacular place :) A fabulous snow jacket you have too!!
We often pass on by the public parkies too...I am always ready to go, but as your mommi notes, not always the most friendly other furries and hoomans... You hit a great day for a beautiful walkie and park zoomies!!

Sweet hugs,
Sierra Rose

Seeing the Hudson River walkway in the snow was almost as special as seeing it and being there this summer. You live in a lovely place.

And we miss you.

Bocci said...

Thanks for taking us on that snowy walk with you, Asta-and your coat is just fabulous!

P.S. Your Mommi is absolutely right to be concerned about your saftey:-)
