HAPPY SEVENTH BIRTHDAY, ASTA! Wishing you many, many happy returns of the day! You are looking great! By the way, #1 says I could have used one of those jumpsuits this past week as a way of keeping me away from my scar without being a conehead!


WFT Nobby said...

Oh Asta, huge congratulations on your Seventh Birthday. It is just grand to hear from you. You are looking simply splendid, all round, dear girl, simply splendid. And what a treat to see all those lovely photos. (You were an exceptionally cute pup, but then weren't we all?)
I must say that new black suit looks most sleek and stylish. Gail says you will have to stay on the lead when wearing it on dark nights, else you might disappear and wouldn't that be dreadful?
Wishing all the best, as ever, to you and your Mommi and Daddi.
Toodle pip!
PS Wasn't it so sad about our dear wiry cousin Jake?

Pippen said...

A most very happy barkday to you, Miss Asta! You do NOT look a day over 4 so we were most shocked that you are 7 and considered a senior doggie!

Juno said...

Happy 7th Birwday, sissy Asta!! No way!! You are NOT seniow at all! :) :)

Jake of Florida said...

Dear Asta,

You are looking so beautiful no one would ever think that you are a (gulp) senior dog. If it's any consolation sweetie, I too, at just 9, am also a senior dog. But who could tell. No crow's feet. No wrinkles. No sagging chinny chin chin. We puppers are truly lucky. And since you and I are mostly white to boot, no need to hide that gray!

Loving you always,

Your pal Just Harry with celestial wishes from my brother on high too.

How Sam Sees It said...

Best wishes Molly

Jo's World said...

Happy Birthday, Asta!

Next Month, I will be the very same age as you are, but it doesn't bother me at all. I hope you just continue to enjoy every day that life bring you and don't worry about being senior. (Unless you can get something free because of it, or get in the movies for a reduced rate!)


Fred said...

Happy Birthday sweetest Asta. I have gone from being a week early to being late today

Your day looks like it was an absolute dream come true...as it should be! That is especially one nifty rain slicker. It makes us wiggy waggy happy to be able to share this special day and its joy even though we are so far apart...woohoo for technology (sometimes).

HOwdy Miss Asta, wowza and yaahoo, Happy Birthday to you. We are sending you 7 smoochie kisses (some with slobber). Your puppy photo made mum squeeeeee really loud. We're so glad you had such a wonderful day and were spoilt (as you should be!). The ice cream looked so delicious. Take care everybuddy. No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory
P.S. Mum says she loved the song on your smilebox. Is there any way you can add who is singing/the music on the smilebox? xx

Sweet Miss Asta, Way back (O.K. way , WAY back) when I was in college I had to take a comparative religions course. I learned that 7 is the Biblical number for perfection.
So happy (belated) birthday and congratulations on having achieved PERFECTION!!!
(Well, geez, everybody already knew THAT about you.)
Happy days!

Pippa Sheltie said...

Aww, you still look like that little puppy in the picture! What a super duper day that looked like, and it's so nice to hear how you're doing!
Hope to see another post soon,
Have a super weekend,
Pippa :)

Martha said...

Hi Asta, Happy Birthday to you. Martha is 7yrs old too - it is a very good age!
Thank you for popping over to visit our blog and your kind message about Bailey.
It was such an awful shock at the time and I was unable to even look at the blog.
Now that I have I can say it does bring some comfort. As you said we had the best of times!
Special memories for us now. Who knows if Martha will ever return to blogging.
One thing is for sure we will be looking back over our blog and smiling, in particular at the designer outfits you designed.
Much love
Vanessa and Martha xxxx

Hey Asta, I'm typing this on Mumsie's new MAC and I know how to do everything and she's clueless and you look totally amazing in those new Spanx you got for your Barkday....

Lacie pauses for breath...

You look really thin in them...can I borrow them???

Happiest SEVENTH Barkday ever, I really thought you were two and I can't stop these run on sentences since we spent all that time time with Aggie last week I love you

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Hi Miss Asta!!

It's me, Mona's sister Prissy. Sorry we missed your birthday. Don't feel bad girl, me and Mona are 8 years old and still get around good. You look super terrific in your rain gear.

How you come back soon.

Happy late birthday. I did celebrate with you on FB. Loved your baby photo, it melted my heart. Thanks for stopping by the other day to help me celebrate my Blogoversary. Hope you made it home OK.

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
So glad that momma did not do that stupid mark all as read. Better late than never on the birthday wishes. Gosh, what a cute little puppy you were. Almost like a stuffie! Seven isn't a senior citizen doggie for a happy gal who keeps her terrier mind active. May you have many more wonderful birthdays.
