a tired dog is a good dog

Thursday, June 21, 2007

As you may have noticed, I haven't been playing my piano lately, it was sooo out of tune it hurt my puppy ears,. Fwankly it sounded like cats singing
(no offence to my cat fwiends, but it's not a gweat sound
)....but to my delight, today Mr. Oscar, my piano tuner showed up..he's weally good. He comes riding up on a motorcycle with all his stuff, which I had to check to make sure it was the right stuff. We then settled down to the work at hand.....

I was a gweat help to him, after all I have pawfect pitch, he was vewy gwateful for my assistance
I got pwetty tired of waiting for Mr Oscar to finish tuning my piano, so I took the time to decide what to play when he was finished..I think something light, not classical...hmmmm
My Mommi suggested that I play Gershwin's "OH, LADY BE GOOD!"
.......but I pwefer, Cole Porter's "LET'S MISBEHAVE"..I'm suwe everydoggie would agwee with my choice..especially tewwiers
As you know Pawfect posture is vewy impowtant when you're playing the piano
I'm almost at the end of this piece, any other wequests?????
For the big finish, I had to stand up to get some weal power behind the last chord

Hi Asta,
You are so accomplished...
I always wondered what the asta down under and all that meant ! But now I got it,will check Jacksons blog!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
You are a friend with countless talents!
I didn't know you play piano! I am sure you give great concerts!
Have a good night

Stanley said...

Hey, girl.

You just keep surprising me, Asta! Are you secretly a rocket scientist too? Or, maybe you freelance as an advisor to world leaders??

Wish I could hear you tickle the ivories. (Speaking of tickling... are you a very ticklish puppy girl?)

You really know how to cheer a guy up. ZZ and I were very touched by your kind words, and the offer to be there for me. (ZZ especially wants you to be attentive to me in his absence. He'll be exploring new territory while I'll be reminded of him constantly... every time I see a torn stuffie).

All my goober love,

Gus said...

Asta: Wow! Next time you play, please have your mommi make a video. But ask her not to talk too much, since we all want to hear you play.

much kissies
(I don't even play fetch, so I am truly impressed!)

Ferndoggle said...

We are speechless...we have absolutely no musical talent at all. Unless you count us barking at every thing that moves. Mom says it sounds like a Symphony.

What a shame I can't tune pianos, or this Mr Oscar could have come to help out! I love the photos of you tickling the ivories, I can just imagine the sweet music.

Hi Asta! Wow, you are so talented! How did you learn how to do that?

My humans are musicians. They just got a piano last weekend. That man needs to come visit us too, because it sounds BAD!

Woot! Asta! How awesome is that?! My girl plays a lot of instruments too but Fig just barks and barks and barks when she does it, so she doesn't get them out very often.... I'm requesting "Once Upon a Dream" from Jekyll and Hyde - do you know that one? It's my favorite!

Finnegan said...

I bet you play beautifully! And of course, we would all love to hear you play.


Annebelle said...

Do you take requests?

Asta, you have such a fun life! I can see your mommi wants you to be VERY cultured and educa-tated too. We don't have a piano in our house, but my mum sings in the shower every single morning! I haven't figured out how to join her yet. You are obviuosly super talented.
