My Sweetie Kousin Koobuss tagged me to tell evewyone about my fiwst day with my pawents, so hewe goes!

This is whewe I was bowned..a place called Birchhuwst Kennels in Nowth Cawolina..(funny I don't have a southewn dwall)..anyway..I lived hewe with my doggiemom and doggiedad and two sissies and thwee bwudders until I was eight weeks old...about a week befowe all my bwuddews and sissies left one by one..i was the only baby left..i thought maybe no one wanted me...they called me giwl,one spot..not a vewy intewesting name,but whatevew! maybe no one wanted me cause i didn't have mowe spots??

Then one day in Novembew, awound something called Thanksgiving(was it thanks fow me?) I was given a bath and told to behave nicely when some hoomans came to the doow.

I came into the woom with my doggie pawents and we chased awound till I saw this giant! I went to investigate his shoes, they had yummy laces..then I was told this was my Daddi!!!He smelled good and was vewy sweet,but dogness, he was ginouwmous..do you think I'll gwow up to be as big as him?

I was told to get my things, I would be leaving with this new Mommi and Daddi!

My new pawents said thank you and put something awound my neck and then stawted walking..I just went with them without a backwawd glance...thewe is a whole big wowld out thewe and I was detewmined to explowe it!...no pwoblem I was off!

My new Mommi held me in hew awms all the way back to a place called NewYowk City..it was ten jillion houws away by caw..but i didn't thwow up ow anything..I just sat and mostly snoozed..it felt safe
We got to this ginowmous city..(maybe that's why Daddi was so big? but then how to explain Mommi??) it was all dawk ,but with a kagillion lights on....we went into a big building and into a woom that moved,then it stopped and we went thwough anothew doow and new Mommi and Daddi said we'we home Asta! Asta! who's Asta?

Ooh this place looks awful tall...I'm not suwe about this...maybe I'll just stay hewe and watch fwom the safety of the tiny kitchen

Hey what's this puple thingy on my body..am I changing colows??what's going on.(it was cold in New York and I had knitted her a sweater)
Hey thewe's aweady a puppy hewe..no one told me that! come out and play with me! well come on!..what a twewp..she wouldn't come play!
My Fiwstest cookie...yummmm!!! I cleaned all the cwumbs
Happiness is "roaching" I didn't know this wowd yet..but i suwe knew the method
I'm pwactising fow my footuw as a bitey face champion
So many new things to munch on..I wondew what this is??
It was hawd to focus the camewa cause I wiggled so much while I chewed
Thewe wewe lots of stuffy toys to play with..I twied them all
The kitchen is at least small puppy sized,whew..
What is that thing pointedat me all the time..I guess it's pawt of Mommi's hand..it's aways in it
Aftew all that excitement and adventoowe..I was weally pooped!


So this was my fiwstest day..not litewally,cause fiwst I spent one night in Nowth Cawolina with some hoomans who wewe fwiends ,but it was my fiws day in New Yowk..my Name is Asta, not one spot giwl,,and I'm a new Yowkew thwough and thwough...I love my Mommi and Daddi and I love my life ..I'm so vewy glad we found each othew...I didn't want to gwow up to be a wepugnican...hehehe..this is mowe my style!

Now I'd like to tag my fwiends Ruby, Sir Bacon, and Goofy to tell us about theiw fiwst day home!
smoochie kisses to all my fwiends..sneep tight

You all looked so pawsome in youw outfits,although by the time this pictoowe was taken,many of us had lost ouw clotheses in the heat of play..and boy did we evew play!!
Thewe was westliing and chasing,and bitey face and sniff the butt..and of couwse we all dwank and had twemendous amount of eatables! As you can see thewe awe a few wib bones left,but i think pwobably Wally and Ethel awe taking them home in hooman bags...Ruby got a "horsey wide fwom Wally ,who is an awfully good spowt.

His Sissy Teka stowed away in his caw and was chasing hew beloved Doofus all ovew the place. Gussie's hat came off almost immediately..he has such a gowgeous head, why hide it?

Agatha and Archie bought pwesents and champagne and wewe supew well behaved,but wewe seen whispewing in the cownew..I don't know what they wewe planning.

Boo and Simba, came with a bunch of howses,who got scawed off by all the wild pups,hehehe..those two guys awe glued at the hip..they don't even have time fow the giwlies..what 's up with that?

GirlGirl came with hew twusty steed,as did Amber,who is quite the howsepuppy,Lorenza was dwessed to the nines as usual in one of hew gwama's cweations!

I was soo happy he made the twip despite the distance!
Even Opy ,the Gwuff puppy came by to bawk me a happy birfday..thank you ,you sweetie..you have nevew fooled me with youw "gwuffness".

Jake of Flowida and his sidekick Dusty(akaJust Harry) had the most enouwmous authentic texas cowboy hats evew..they kept falling off in all the excitement!

My Sweet Fwiend Finnegan came and played with all of us,and then took a west in the field and enjoyed the munchies and the fwiends who all came to talk to him..boy is he tall!!! good thing he decided to lie down..I couldnt even see his head when he was standing..can you imagine what GG thought???

Appeawantly ,Scruffy was in chawge of designing their outfits and ,um he's quite litewal in his intewpwetation of cow-boy,and cow-giwl,heheh..I loved the way they looked..I might bowwow theiw outfits fow holloween.
