The Ladies showewed them wif flowews and accompanied them back to the hall fow mowe  buwgews, umm I mean woast boaw, and lots of Mead to quench theiw thiwst.  The knights wewe twooly hewoic and much admiwed by the Ladies.

Dear Asta and Laci,
Thank you for hostessing such an amazing party. I am having a wonderfull time. The good is amazing, and I love all the dancing. Would you see if Sir Taffy of Kent or Sir Oscar of America would like to dance with me? I would love to dance with someone. One of the fur - persons I would like to dance with is not at this party. I don't know why, but I think he taking care of his family. Please tell Lady Katy and Lord Bertie Happy Happy birthday.

Elaine Pritchard said...

Happy birthday - what an exciting weekend.

Amber-Mae said...

Asta, you're going to be soooo pooped with all these amazing celebrations!

♥ Sallie said...

Happy Birthday!

Did someone say cake?

George The Lad said...

Happy Birthday,I raise a beer to Katie and Bertie,
Asta you sure know how to put on a great party. I'm pooped!! these costumes can get a bit sweaty under the arm pits!!!

Alien said...

Well, no hard feelings. *Passes mug of mead across the round table to Black Night*

I propose a toast!

Jake of Florida said...

What a swell party!!!! You and Lady Lacie were such gracious hostesses -- uh, except when we accepted Lady Lacie's invitation to dance, well she got a bit -- shall we say "pushy"????? Fortunately, I was first to take a whirl around the floow, saving my younger brother from a potentially very embarrassing moment or two -- his previous companions have been much more, shall we say, "demure," and he would have been overwhelmed.

But we had tons of fun -- and we want to end the day with a rousing Happy Birthday to Katievere!!! That's JH on the High C and me on the Low G.

Wirey woofs,

Sir Jake of Florida.

WFT Nobby said...

Oh Katie, I would not have believed you could look as beautiful as you did today. So graceful and elegant and, well, just gorgeous. I am a little worried that the long train on your dress might make dancing a little difficult for you. Perhaps you would like to watch while I perform a Highland Fling, now that I am unencumbered of that suit of armour, with its ever so slightly rusty patches....
Toodle pip!

Asta said...

OK evewyone get naked, heheheh..enuff of these uncomfowtable awmouws and long twains..last one in the moat is a , ummm, I don't know, hehehehe

AFSocksScylla said...

Happiest of Birthdays Katie.

Asta, I am glad you enjoyed dancing with me. We will have to dance again after we get something to eat. I am starving. ~Fenris.

AFSocksScylla said...

I am in the moat, where is everybody? Asta, are there alligators in here???????? ~Fenris

Bobby said...


The Black Knight said...

Who pushed me into the moat?

Show yourself!

Deborah said...

Happy Birthday!

Bocci said...

"Let's jump in the moat, oh baby..." What fun we all had! And Happy birthday to our one year old friends, Bertie and Katie! Can we have another party this fantastic next year?

TwoSpecialWires said...

Swim? Naked? What a great way to bring an end to the party! We've had a fabulous time ... and FINALLY we are getting a chance to catch up with our friends. Once again ... happy happy birthday to Bertie and Katie. And thanks for everything. EVERYTHING!

We're off to find Winston. Last time we saw him he was chatting with Merlin. We don't think it'd be a very good idea for him to get wet.

With one more hug, spin, kiss, nibble and toast ...
We're taking a quick dip and then heading home.

With love and respect,
Sir Jake and Lady Fergi (teehee!)

AFSocksScylla said...

Ahhhh, the alligator was just the black knight, what a relief. He seems very grumpy about being pushed in.

Had a marvelous time thank you ever so much for inviting me. Guess I better head home and see what Mommy & the cats are up too.

Happy Birthday again Katie & Bertie. ~Fenris

Asta said...

Hey evewyone donb't go yet..Mommi is just scibbling the pictoowe of us in the moat

WFT Nobby said...

Oh no, not the moat! Please! I don't like water at all!

Gus said...

Oh, I think the moat sounds wonderful. I hope Berie and Katie had a wonderful first birthday, because I have had a wonderful time.

Last one in the lake is NOT a terrier!


rottrover said...

Lady Asta, We've just dropped in to wish a very happy first birthday to Kativere and Bertilott! It's wonderful that you've heated the moat for all of us to enjoy. We actually got snow at home in Southern California last night so we're going to zoom home and see if we can play in it!! Happy Birthdays, and thank you so much Lady Asta and "Lady" Lacie!

Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

Hey can we take some meade in a go-cup??

Asta said...

Isn't it a pawfect day fow swim???
I was happy to heat up the moat..it's so much mowe comfowtable than icy watew, heheh

Gizmo, Bawt and Wuby, I'll have some Meade go-cups made fow you to take home

3 doxies said...

Woooooowhooooooo! Puddles is in da house!!!!
Uh, i thinks I pushed somebuddy in da moat on accident. Oooops, my bad!

Does dat moat haves alligators in it? I odn't likes alligators.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

Oh Lady Asta, I love swimming. I have extra bikini's if anyone needs any.
Sally Ann

WFT Nobby said...

Oh well, maybe I do like water after all, if it is heated, and shared with Katie (and all my other wonderful friends and relatives!) But please don't tell Gail about it, or she might go getting ideas again about rinsing mud off my coat by dunking me in cold Scottish mountain streams at the end of a walk, a activity that I most certainly do NOT approve of....

Lady Asta this has been a most splendid party, I feel so honoured that you went to all this trouble to arrange such a wonderful time for everyone. The pictures were amazing! You can be assured I shall never forget my first birthday.

But I'm afraid that I shall have to go home to bed shortly. Perhaps time for one last birthday kiss, Katie my sweet?

Oskar said...

You throw the bestest parties, Asta. I don't like the water, but I do like swimming with lovely ladies!

Nubbin wiggles,

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh, I refuse to believe that all good things must come to an end. Asta, this birthday party for Katie and Bertie has been amazing (and I speak for Jake, as well.) I will forever remember dressing like a Lady, chatting with my friends, dancing with Butchy in the lane and swimming swimming swimming in the warm water of the moat. For me? Best of all? That sweet Katie's dear brother Butchy was able to keep his promise and keep the seizure monster at bay. It may have been all of those brave knights ... but in my heart I believe it is because Butchy is so brave and valiant.

Many thanks to you. A gentle kiss for Bertie. A sweet curtsie to Katie. And we're off. Full of memories. Full of love. And oh so thankful to be part of such a wonderful group of Family and Friends.

(Can you tell I'm happy? I am. So is Jake. And Winston ... once he leaves his friend Merlin, I'm sure he'll speak for himself.)

Lady (blush) Fergi and Sir Jake (of the Rocky Mountains)

Asta said...

It has been my pleasoowe and honow to have all of you come and fwolick wif me
I'm so glad Bewtie even liked the moat(don't wowwy, I won't tell Gail)

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

Hmm...I seem to have gotten lost at my own pawty...I swear nobody was here before...I didn't get up THAT late...

Asta...Scruffy here...Um...we have a Problem With The Lakeland.

She can't swim, 'member??? Her ever present bottom sinks. Paws go up....THAT'S why she's on the shore barking. And barking....

What a pawsitively amazing pawty!!!

Your dry cleaning bill with all those twains is going to be awful. How do we clean the Rent-An-Armor??? George the Lad's completely rusted out...poor guy...

Now I'm going to go ask little Katie for a dance. Bertie's been hoggin' her all night....

All of us wish we could stay and stay, but it is also our skin sissie;s daughters birthday today! you remember our girl. Thank you for all your hard work, and Hppiest birthday to the 2 guests. Now all I have to do is find my 2 brothers. Have you seen that darn Bentley George. He has left the moat. And Scooter is hiding from me cause he does not want to leave. Maybe he will come if you call him.

I feel so much better after swimming (in the nude). Between my wardrobe malfunctions and all that dancing, my paws were sore! Now,I can just kick back with a goblet of wine and relax.
