OMD, this is going to be one awesome party - look at all those beautiful ladies all dressed in gorgeous gowns. We can't wait to be entertained by Jester Mango. And Khyra has some great dishes planned there. Pepsi did such an outstanding job at the last party, we just know the place will be rocking with his music selections.

Thanks for letting us come too.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

We are on our way, Mom has been busy on the phone and didn't even notice all 3 of us leave...that wirey new boy got his way...he is coming
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Y'ALL and we are on our way!

Deetz said...

We're are back, Ms. Asta
We sure missed seeing your precious face and reading your posts.....Happy Times Ahead.

AFSocksScylla said...

Thanks for helping me find something to wear Asta, and I see my lovely lady Ciara is here. I am going to ask her to dance. Doesn't she look divine in blue? ~Fenris

Hollie and Janie said...

You all look so gorgeous in those divine costumes!! It's all so romantic!! I can't wait for the party to start!!

Jake of Florida said...

We are so distressed. We're dying to come to the pawty -- but we have nothing to wear. Nekkid amidst all that finery would be too too embarrassing. Do you think anyone could loan us caps and breeches? Woe is us otherwise.

Sad woreu woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

AFSocksScylla said...

Ciara dances divinely. Now I has to find us something to drink and eat, as we have worked up an appetite. ~Fenris

George The Lad said...

Wow I just love castles, there always full of steps lol1!!
Anyways lets get the beer open and then to find the birthday boy, and birthday girl.

AFSocksScylla said...

Asta said...

going fow a dance wif Siw Gustav!

TwoSpecialWires said...

We made it! Finally! Jake slipped in the mud climbing a hill ... it was quite a morning ... and then he got lost trying to find Lady Sally. Thank dogness we girls had our senses about us and gathered her up (oh, the wonders of Skype!) and we even had time to play and frolic in the dales and moors. Thanks to the great A Roam Ahs coming from the Khyra's kitchen, we knew just which way to proceed! And we MADE it! What a beautiful castle! What a great venue for a party! We can hardly wait to see the birthday kids! This is gonna be FABULOUS!

We're so happy!
Lady Fergi and her now cleaned up brother, Sir Jake

smoochie kisses

WFT Nobby said...

Oh this is all so incredible I am feeling a little overwhelmed. (I do hope Katie has not noticed that I'm nervous. Oh and how do you cock your leg when wearing armour, by the way?)
I am so honoured that so many fine gentlemen and lady dogs are here to meet me. What amazing costumes too! (Especially Mango's....)
But none are more beautiful than my Lady Katie-vere of course.
Well,oh my. I just need a little more time to take it all in.
Toodle pip!
PS Er, is it rude, Gail, to ask when the eating starts?
Oh, it is apparently. Are you sure? That food looks SO YUMMY.

Jake of Florida said...

We never looked/felt finer -- except perhaps at a certain wedding in Scotland -- and on horseback, too!!! How absolutely exciting. Do you think any of the fine ladies present might share a bit of spirits with us????

Sir J and Sir JH

Asta said...

Dawling Bewtie-lot
This is youw Biwfday and given the behaviow of some of the knights, I say Dig in!!! I'm suwe LLKatievewe would love to shawe a dwumstick wif you

(Mommi does say she oves youw good mannews and says Gail taught you so well)

Asta said...

Siw Jake and Just Hawwy
I'm suwe that sevewal of the lovely ladies would be honowed to shawe some spiwits wif you handsome knights

now whewe did Lacie go????

TwoSpecialWires said...

We had to go back and make sure that Sir Jake and Sir JH were, indeed clothed! We knew we'd seen them arrive on horseback, but when they mentioned "no appropriate attire", we thought perhaps they were ... well ... you know (blush). Thank dogness we were wrong! (They DO look handsome! As do all the fellas in red capes!)

Loving every moment...
Lady Fergi

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

What a fabulous party and look at all those costumes. That castle is so full of character and just right for this party. Magical.. Hugs GJ xx

Dexter said...

That Lacie puppet is freaking me out, but damn if I don't look stunning in tights.


Eric said...

I'm quite merry Asta sweet pea! Fancy sharing another horn of mead with me? Some of my pie? Made it myself! Though Khyra's food looks dogalicious. Anyways. I made a bunny pie with a puff pastry top... don't the earses look kind of cute sticking through the pastry? Better put a napkin over that pretty velvet frocksie of your's Asta.Everydoggie looks super smashing don't they? Though I'm with Bertie,cocking my leg wearing armour isn't easy peasy.

Toast to Bertie and dearest cousin Katie- happy barkday square cousin's!

Wiry love n kisses Eric xxx

Hollie and Janie said...

Oh, asta!!
My dress is just gorgeous! I love it so much!! I'm so honored to be a guest and I'm having just the best time ever! cheers!!! I can't wait for dinner and dancing!!
Lady Janie

Jake of Florida said...

Do you think Pepsi would mind if we barked a few bars with him. JH will hit high C with no trouble at all and I'm down around low low G when I'm in form. Although we do our best harmonizing at 6am, we'll give it a try now to get everydog in the mood -- or not!

Those are authentic wirey woofs you're heating, folks!

Jake and Just Harry

doyle and mollie said...

GJ, Hi pal the cats are here somewhere. They are kinda shy around all these doggies. But they did come to wish Bertie & Katie a Happy Birthday. They may have popped back home. I have been hanging out with Ciara.~Fenris

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

Lady Lacie, Queen Morgan here...yes, bow to me...curtsie...yes yes yes...


Don't you boyz know about the Flipper on your armor??? It's like a flip phone...you flip, you aim and ya flip back...sheesch...at least I'm a student nurse and very professional about this stuff...but I didn't want you dogs to um RUST.

Lady Khyra seems to have been doing quite a bit of sampling of the meatballs or whatever she's cookin'...she seems to be bustin' outta her bodice!!

Don't Bertie and Katie look dreamy?? But, Sir Butcho looks a bit nervous....she is still pretty young. (Lacie hisses a bit, totally jelly, but refooses to admit it...)

Now, Asta...can you PLEASE get me off Mango's stoopid arm...he's pretending he knows how to be a VEN TRILL O QUIST and he's making me talk and say stoopid things like, "My butt is hoooge....
and "Mango should never marry...."

Curtsies to you for your hospitality....back soonest, after I change my dress...I might try some of that armor....


doyle and mollie said...

aw i forgots to mention too that i am sure lacie whispered in my ear while we were standing together by the cake that she has some medievil cocktails planned... i asked doyle whether that was bad medicine for a rooster's back end but he just gave me the stoopid sister look and wandered off to sniff the ladies WTD...

AFSocksScylla said...

I should be a very good dog tonight as I am a very tired dog. Boy can Ciara dance. I think I'll see if I can ride one of those horses. It shouldn't be too hard should it? ~Fenris

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

Yes...um Asta...where IS the electrical outlet for the blender??


ASTA!!!!!!! There IS electricity in Camelot, isn't there??? I mean, do we HAVE to hook Mango up to one of those things where he walks in a circle like a donkey to generate power for my blender??????

Sheesch...perhaps the good old dayz are harder than I thought...

Old Soul and I have a DATE lined up...he's just a doll!!



AFSocksScylla said...

No Electricity!!!!!!!! Does that mean I will have to sleep in the dark? Yikes. Guess I will curl up and go to sleep now. I'll see you in the morning. Ciara wanna come snuggle with me? ~Fenris

Charlie said...

What a great party! I'm going to help Khyra in the kitchen. I'll taste everything to make sure it's ok!!
- Charlie

Asta said...

I think we should give a big hand to ouw Cook Khywa
This food is absolutley mawvelous.
I hope evewyone gets lots of west tonight cause tomowwow is the jousting competition.
we also have a hike led by Bewtielot
what a day

Winston said...

Oh Lady Asta. Goodness gracious. The trip to Camelot has made me weary, but the return to my homeland is simply divine. Thank you for allowing me to come. The plains and forests. The grandeur and chivalry and courtesy. It's just as I remember. Perhaps I'll share a cup of tea with the Lady Lacie at the Roundtable ... word has been passed that she is interested ... and then I'll rest my tired and wheeless legs. I'm sure many adventures lie ahead. For now I'm rather sleepy. There must be a quiet place to retire ... I'll let the young ones celebrate and I will pass my birthday wishes forward when I awaken.

So pleased to be here ...
Sir Winston (the wheelie great great grandone to Merlin)

Asta said...

Siw Winston
It has been such an honow to have you gwace us wif youw pwesence and wisdom.
I am so pleased that all is as you wemembew..It is a mpst Bootiful land and I must say, I would happily stay if I could.
The Lady Lacie did ask about you and I told hew she must be on hew best behaviow if she is to have a moment to shawe wif you.
Tea sounds just the thing..pawhaps an infoosion of fwagwant hewbs that we gathewed eawliew .
I have a lovely woom fow you wif a most comfowtable bed . The cuwtains should keep the dwafts out and I've wawmed the sheets wif coal fwom the fiweplace.
I bid you sweet dweams
Tomowwow should be anothew gwand day
youw sewvant

Juno said...

Momo and Pinot xoxoxo

WFT Nobby said...

Oh Katie, that drumstick we shared was extra specially delicious! Oh and you do look so beautiful. But, er, please will you excuse me a minute? I must have a quiet word with Eric and Asta.

Uncle Eric, about this flap thing. Houston we have a problem. (What's an anachronism Gail?) You see the flap seem to be on the right side, but I only ever lift my left leg. So every time I try to release a bit of that mead (which I believe is a diuretic) I fall over. I do hope Katie hasn't seen, it's so emarrassing.

And Asta, about this hike. With all due respect to my wonderful party hostess, do you really think this is a good idea? It's just that I'm remembering what happened on a certain geological field trip last Autumn (and the dogs were all sober then, at least at the start...

Oh, I must go back to Katie. I see Mango is approaching her...

Asta said...

DEawest Bewtilot
The ide fow that hike was simpluy fow you and Kakie such young and fit /examplle of the pwopew young nobility,,we wee simply twyng to pleez you, if you have othew pwefewences pleeas speak up my deaws

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

Trust me, Winston's chambers were not cold last night, I'm just sayin'...tea, my paw...
