Happy Howl roo een!!

So, it's settled? You guys are moving to Budapest! Are you looking forward to it? When I'm back to Europe, I'll be sure to look for you!

Oh Asta, We will miss you a bunch. We hope you will continue to stay in touch with all of us. Budapest is a LONNNNG was away. We like your Punkin costume. The color looks good on you and NO it doesn't make you look like we don't think your costume makes you look shaped like a punkin. Under that costume you look spectacularly beooootiful.

Oh Asta, this is such momentous news! You are all coming to Europe. When can I come to visit??
We can imagine that you are all excited but also perhaps feeling a bit overwhelmed. Gail once visited Budapest for a long weekend when she had friends who were working out there. She says she had great time, the old part of the city is beautiful and the trams were very cheap and there were lots and lots of flowers for sale everywhere. But that was in about 1992 and things will have changed.
But Asta you know, the wonderful thing about blogs is that we can stay in touch wherever in the world we end up.
Very best wishes to you and Mommi and Daddi.
Toodle pip!
PS The pumpkin outfit is amazing. The colours are just so you!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Miss Asta, what amazing news that you are moving to Budapest with your Mum and Dad. It sounds absolutely wonderful and exciting.

Mum says thank you so much for all your photos. Now we have had a little glimpse of Budapest. The Apartments were so huge and full of character. Are you having one with a little balcony. Now that would be fabulous.

Good luck with the move. We love your pumpkin outfit and as always, Miss Asta, you look glamorous whatever you wear.

No worries (for sure), and love, Stella and Rory.

P.S. Mum says your Mum and Dad look very much in love. Just perfect.

Happy Halloween Asta,

We love pumpkin costumes! They are soooooo cute. You are going to love Budapest. We visited in March/April & rode bikes, visited the parks & baths and make sure you go to the spice markets! You will have so much fun living there!

And tell Mommi to try dobosh- the best Hungarian cake on the planet!

Ruger said...

My dear Miss Asta, you look most boootiful in your punkin suit. I fink the orange brings out the bootiful colours in your fur fery nicely. I hope wooo hafed a fery fun time wif all your pals at the run.
Mumma & I is fery glad to hear that woooo can move right ofer to Budapest. It would be fery bad if woooo had to stay in a special kennel far away from your Mommi & Daddi.
I will haf my paws crossed that your hu-mans get the apartment that they want. Just make fery sure that you tell me where it is so if there be a time when woooo need a big strong handsome blue dawg again I will know where to fly to.

Lots of tail wags

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hi Asta - I'm happy your peeps are back - and there are moving adventures in your future. I hope you all will be very happy there (it sure looks beautiful).

You look great in you punkin costume - Happy Halloween!!!

PeeS: I love the way with the blogs and the interweb - we will never lose touch with you or your peeps!!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

the many Bs said...

hey Asta, you are a beautiful pumpkin! we're sure that all of your friends at the run will love your costume!

we will miss you when you move to Hungary, but then it will probably be just the same as it is right now, except you are in a different time zone. we just want you and your mommi and daddi to be happy. we kind of wish that we had somewhere to go, but the human says we have to stay here in our little house and she has to go to her job. you know, you could always come and live with us (really) but it's not like Hungary here. it's more like Seattle. oh well...

have a happy halloween and don't eat chocolate, okay!

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Happy Halloween Asta! Boy, have I missed you! Looking good, girl! I hope your hoomans get the apartment they want, but I know that wherever they move to, as long as you're with them, it's home sweet home :)


Koobuss said...

Hi Kousin Asta,

Happy Halloweenie, sweet little cousin. I hope you have a good time at the wun and get lots of tweets.

Sorry to hear about your Mommi and Daddi's colds. Bummer.

And real sorry to hear that you are moving. Double bummer. : (

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Bocci said...

Asta, you look absolutely fab in that pumpkin costume-you'll be the hit of the run!
Thanks so much to your Mom and Dad for posting that Smile Box with all they've been going through-Budapest is a gorgeous city from what we've seen (in pictures) and heard, and we hope you all will be wonderfully happy there. We think you are all just terrific, whether in New York or Budapest!

Anonymous said...

Oh, Asta, you are just the cutest little pumpkin that ever, ever was! I hope you have fun in the run and you get lots and lots of treatsies.

I know your mommi and daddi must be nervous abouts that big of a change. I do NOT like change myself so I can sure understand how they feel. But my momma always says things happen for a reason and this will prolly turn out to be a big, wonderful, exciting adventure for all of you! And I'm pawsitive that you'll do a Most Excellent job of snoopervising the move!

Wiggles & Wags,

Tosca said...

Wow! What an exciting adventure you have ahead of you! (My homie and I just moved out to near your current corner of the world.)

The Daily Pip said...

Oh Miss Asta, I am so filled with mixed emotions. So happy, that your parents have found an apartment they like and will be happy in. The pictures are beautiful and my mom's best friend still talks about her time in Budapest years ago.

On the other hand, I am sad that you will be leaving New York. You know how my mom feels about New York ...it is kind of the dream that got away for her. Your posts always bring it back for her. But no worries, because now we will get to learn more about Budapest! Hurray!

Will your mom have any time to do painting before she leaves? I imagine there is so much to do before March so I completely understand if she doesn't have time, but let me know if there might be time for one of her pet portraits. Again, we completely understand if there's no time.

Your pal, Pip

Kwee Cats said...

Hey, this might not be so bad after all! Those pictures looked really neat. And wif no quarter-tines, that does not sound so horrible. And, you can still bloggy from there...so, okay. We keep our paws crossed you gets the apartment your Mumsy and Daddy like so muches.

Hugs sweet Asta! You look so cute in your Halloween costume! We so glad you got to have some funs. We'll see you later :-)

Maggie Mae and Max said...

Asta, Budapest looks so enchanting! Did see the photos of the apartment your pawrents hope to buy. Looks like home even when empty! Mom could spend days in the cozy library room :D Paws crossed you win the bid! You know that Cinderella's carriage was a giant pumpkin? So...I'm thinkin you're the princess Cinderella in the carriage :D Happy Howl-o-ween Asta dear and your wonderful pawrents too!!!

Waggin at ya,

Ruisje said...

Glad your parents were back in time to go with you to that marvelous halloween party at the run!!

Asta, i am sort of exited you moving to Europe. You're maybe not (yet) but i am sure you will make many new friends there - you're just the doggie girl every dog and cat wants to be friends with! :-)

And maybe, maybe... we can meet in real. The typist already looked at the possibilities to visit budapest with 2 dogs (PLUS ME Marlene!!) ;-) I think you and my doggie sister Lily will be friends in no-time...

headbumpies & love

Smoochie kisses from Buzzer & Lily :-)

Oskar said...

roughseasinthemed said...

Pippa is asleep so I snuck over to have a look at your blog and read up about your mommi and daddi's hungarian trip.

It looks fabulous, your mommi took some wonderful photos and I really enjoyed looking at that smilebox. Please tell her and thank her for putting it together.

I was going to try and watch it through again, but it seems I have to wash up :(

Chef said...

Budapest is so beautiful!! I don't blame your pawrents for moving there, Asta.You're going to make all kinds of new Hungarian doggiefriends and you'll discover new smells and new parks and new treats! How exciting!! Remember - there will always be a handsome Boxer (*me!) very far away in Canada, thinking of you and my mommi will be thinking of you and your parents with love an our best wishes! xo
