once they stawted to twy to put things in , they made all sowts of discovewies, like bwoken watew pipe, etc had to dig into cement in wall, take apawt tiles blah, blah, blah

end wesult is, they fixed the pipes, and cemented again, BUT, they have to wait fow that to dwy befowe they can wedoo tiles, and the mistew's mothew's Biwfday is monday, so he can't come back till toosday, heheheh

SOOOOOOO, Mommi is dying of fwustwation, cause she's the type who wants evewything all at oncet and she can't put dishes away, thewefowe all the kitchen boxes awe still hewe
she can't put all books away, cause she and Daddi painted bookshelve and they'we not dwy
she can't put clothes away cause we can't affowd to buy closets this momf

Martha said...

Oh Asta, how lovely to have your own chair to sit on!!
Even better to get into your own bed.
Thank dogness the furniture has arrived.
What a lot of boxes - what is it with these humans! They can't need that many boxes.
The human is still loving her first glimpse of Budapest - the buildings, the cafes, the orchestra playing in the theatre.
You are all having such an adventure, meeting new pups and humans.
Take care
Martha & Bailey xx

Charlie said...

mayziegal said...

Ohmidogness, Asta! Moving to Boodepest sure does look like a lotta work! But hopefully real soon everything will be in its place and you all can just relax and enjoy your new home. I luved your pictures. That roast ducks looked SO good! Does it taste like chicken?

Please give your mommi some snuggles from me. They're better than wine OR xanax...heehee!

Wiggles & Wags,

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Your Mommy has lots to do so we totally understand. Our Mommy says she HATES moving so we are staying put cause she never wants to go through that stress again.

WFT Nobby said...

Dear Asta, I expect it's having you there that most helps Mommi and Daddi feel at home. We think you are living in a beautiful building (never mind the dodgy plumbing - all to common in old buildings in Europe, we fear...)
Toodle pip and cheers!
Bertie and Gail.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Miss Asta, we think your moving to Boo Da Pest is so wonderful and amazing even with the silly plumbing business and stuffs. We are glad you have your furniture back, the food looks totally yummers and we love, love, love the look of your new home.

Mum says its just like a wonderful movie. We cannot imagine living in such a place and find it totally captivating (mum's word, not ours hehehe). We hope you are all feeling settled and relaxed now. Bye. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory (and Carol x)

Gus said...

Dear Asta..it was good to see you at the end of the smilebox, curled up in your special chair and resting comfortably! We are glad things are starting to sort out a bit - but must tell you that we are still looking for Teka's favorite coat, which is probably in the box muzzer marked "things we should leave behind but brought anyway!" Our movers thought that was pretty funny.

We have been suffering through muzzer's cold. It means that she doesn't want to do walkies, and the Dad is having a symposium, but no animals are being harmed.

We like your building, and we know your Mommi and Daddi will make it a wonderful place.

love always

Unknown said...

Hi Asta! Great to hear from you! Tell your Mommi to look at the plumbing problem this way - you'll have the newest pipes in the building.

Glad everything is moving forward (if not fast enough), and we all look forward to seeing it when it's all done. As I'm sure you Mommi does too!

Molly the Airedale said...

We just love your smileboxes, Asta. This adventure looks like so much fun to us! Your home will be just perfect for you and your mommi and daddi soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Well, just try to think ahead to how nice everything will be once it's all finished. Then you can all sit back and relax!


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

OH THAT FOOD!!!!!! We are STARVED and it looks amazing!!!!! And to see you back in your own chair looks so....normal!!! Oh...if you pee on the bed they might be more charitable about tying ya to it....I'm just sayin'....

Kisses to all!!


Koobuss said...

Kousin Asta,

What a good idea from Scruffy, Lacie, and Stanley! haha....

Glad to see that your stuff has arrived and that your Mommi and Daddi have something to do now. : ) That's great. Soon you will feel as though you were there forever.

Good luck with all your unpacking. We hope that you find everything.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

The Daily Pip said...

Oh Asta, I just love all these pictures of Budapest. I know it must be very stressful for your parents, but it sure does look exciting to us!!

Your pal, Pip

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hi Asta - my mum and I are just all agog looking at the amazing brave move pictures and sigh at how beautiful a place you have to live in. We think if only you had a backyard it would be absolutely perfect...;-)

Still - I laugh at your mom wanting everything done NOW!! because mine would be exactly the same - they sound like sisters!!

What a relief you have your stuff and boxes and now have your real bed and chair!! I think it is wonderfuls that you don't have a kitchen because your peeps can check out all the local eating places and then bring home doggie bags for you - make sure they have a roast duck leg in them ....... oh heaven!!!!

Love to all, Tail Wuggles, Rubie

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
I watched your smiley box with momma and Pea. I think that your new house will be beautiful in short order, but I understand how anxious your mommi is about the whole thing. She needs to follow your lead and have a nice snooze.


Jon Terry said...

Thanks for updating us. Tell mommy to take more naps during such times or take you out for more walkies, that should help her feel better :D

Love ya,
Jon Terry

Loved the ShadowBoxes! Your mommy (& daddy) are good photographers. Very artsy photos. Your apartment will be ship shape in no time. Tell your mom to listen to you and chill! bol. Our mommy is trying to learn Polish now. She forgets so much, and here she is trying to learn a new language. Sheesh. Well, you keep on being the sweet little lady you are and give your folks smoochies from us.
Love you lots,

Raising Addie said...

Howdy Asta!

We are glad to see that you are settling in well in your new home. We are so sorry that you guys left New York but from your pictures it looks like you have a gorgeous city to explore.

Our mom's mom has been very ill which has kept her away from blogging and most fun things but she wanted us to tell you that she has a coworker named Julius that is from Budapest. His parents actually just moved here but they still own a bar/restaurant in Budapest. If there are any questions that you have about the area please let us know.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Asta it sounds very stressy, but it will all be worth it and Budapest already looks lovely. I know all the neighbourhood dogs will love you too!
I has beed keeping updated on GR on Mum's phone and we can't comment there but we has been thinking of you!

It is good to see pictures with furniture, and wonderful comfy places for Asta to snuggle and nap.

We think of you all often, and are so glad that you have found new friends in your new city.

Remember, I am your best boyfriend.
