Asta darling, know that you bring peace to all of us by looking so beautiful in whatever you put on your furry little body. I do doga some weeks with muzzer, but we can't always make it. I didn't even think of mediating on my own.

OMD! Asta you are a meditatin' cutie!!

Noah the Airedale said...

You're not alone Asta. We're bored too. Pinkies are busy checking guests in and cleaning rooms and we're just hanging around. We went for a walk earlier, that was the highlight so far.

Asta, you should come and keep me company! I do love your meditating pose - you look soooooo cool!

Hey Asta, I had a pretty boring day yesterday too, although I did manage one nice long walk in the morning. If I'd known, we could have been bored together! Jx

Duke said...

Asta, pssssssssst, I have a secret to tell you! Have your mom buy you one of those udder tug toys and when you're bored and want to play, you stand there with the tug in your mouth looking all sweet and if she doesn't see you at first you slap her leg with it! It'll get her attention and then when she does look down at you and sees the whites of your eyes pleading - you're in!!!!!!!! It works for me every single time!

Yer friend,

Daisy said...

Playing all by yourself is sometimes not very fun. I think meditating was a good idear. If that doesn't work, you can try running in crazy circles all over the house.

Moco said...

We are having good weather. You get on Aire Ruby and come on out. We will run around the yard until we both pass out. We can take the stuffies in and out the dog door until the hoomans are ready to pull out their hair.

Come play with us! Swede William might try to go pervert on you but Sam I Am will keep him in line.

Asta, I'm with you! I'm sooooo bored today! My grandma is a work. My girl is sick so all she is doing is sleeping and watching TV and sleeping. There's no one here to entertain me and I'm totally bored. I tried to entertain myself too. I decided that I'd try to be the best watch dog ever and protect my girl while she's sick. I growled and barked at every little sound. The heat would come on so I'd growl. The humidifier would bubble so I'd bark. I'd hear a car door close out side so I'd run to the door and bark. I'd see steam coming out of the rice cooker so I'd do my yappy bark. And it worked because I wasn't bored anymore but it also made my girl really cross at me. She moaned a bunch and curled into a ball and put a pillow over her head. I thought I should stop because all my guard dogging seemed to be aggravating her condition. So now I'm bored again. Maybe I should give meditation a try like you.

Agatha and Archie said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh come here. PL2 had to put a cone on Agatha becasue she is licking her war wound and she will not move and I am feeling better and am separated from Aggie becaseu"She vants to alone" We could play together!!! Love Archie and Agatha(I haven't moved since this cone was oput on me)

Bella the Boxer said...

I hate it when the humans are working and won't play with me! How rude! How's the meditation thing working for you? I will have to give it a try. Om.

Don't be bored, i'll send you a mousey mouse so you can chomp him.

Asta, you look great as the 21st Incarnation of the War Phox Lama!

Terriers must have an active inner-life, otherwise they would be entirely ineffective in tormenting their humans and fulfilling their karmic destiny.

You rule!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
So sorry that weather has ruined your weekend!
I am like you. I need my mom to play with me. If not, the toys are not so interesting.
I hope that meditation thing helps you!
Kisses and hugs

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

I sure hope your weekend has gotten better. I totally understand about being bored. I try to play ball by myself too, and it doesn't do anything for me. I keep trying to push mom and dad to get me a dog of my own. Then I'd always be entertained. If you get really bored, just head towards Chicago and we can hang out!

Your pal,

I wished I can come play with you. It rained the whole day at my side yesterday

PerfectTosca said...

Man Asta, doesn't it just stink when nobody will play? I mean you drop all your toys in front of everybody and nobody budges. That makes me feel so inadequate, I usually chase a cat or something and start a ruckus. I mean, it gets attention right?

Boy, that Yoga position looks kinda hard for a big butt like me.

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, that's so sad that no one will play with you. that sounds like dog abuse to us. sometimes Benson plays by himself by dropping the ball on the floor and catching it when it bounces. maybe you could do that with your ball. then it will roll under the couch and that's the end of that game. we know!

maybe you chould go rip something up. that will make you feel better and probably get some attention too! start with the couch and see if anyone notices! (but don't tell your parents that you got the idea from us. we are innocent poodles, not crazy terriers.)


Sassy Kat said...

You poor neglected sweetie. I hope your meditation worked for you. You are too funny, you always make me laugh. Today you will have more fun. See you soon!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh Asta, you poor dear. I'll come over straight away to play ball with you!

Love licks,

Gosh, Asta, I wish yu had been wiv me this weekend- yu cud hav protektid me- I neerly got killd!

PB 'n J said...

I totally agree Asta - I was stuck home all day yesterday and no one would play with me. I was so bored that I had to chase the kitties just for something to do!

Petra said...

Oh, Asta, you act just like me when everyone is busy and neglecting me. And you're right: those balls just don't throw themselves back at you!

Good idea to start meditating. You sure looked great; what happy thoughts went through your mind?

Deetz said...

You look so bowed Asta. I gets bored too and I ask to go out and then I run over to the neigbors and take stuff from their yard (shhhhh, its a secret, the hoomans don't know) and I replace it with stuff from other neighbors....the hoomans are getting very frustrated....Its very cold and rainy and nasty here too. There was even a tornado that was close to our home, but mummy said it would be okay. I was soooo bowed too this weekend.

Deetz said...

Thank you so much, Asta for your kind words. Mummy says she knows Gizmo is tired but she says she is not ready to say goodbye. I try to get him to play all weekend, but he just growls at me. I wish I could have come to play with you this weekend. I gots lots of toys just like yours.....I got a baseball, and lots of stuff toys. I will send you a pic of them sometime.

Juno said...

Sissy Asta!!
We know how you feel!! Where is "spring"???

We smiled when we saw your pictures. You had so many toys on the floor. :)

We have actually gotten very good at throwing the ball when nobody has time to play with us. We will come play ball with you whenever you would like, it is one of our favourite games.

Koobuss said...

Oh kousin Asta, I know how you feel. It's awful. i haven't had a walk in over a week! Today the weather was nice so my mom took me for a two-mile walk. I also got to play a little bit with Sadie. I have been exhausted since we got back. I'm so tired that I can barely stand. Why did she want to get all our exercise in in one day? It's been about a month since I last walked two miles and I'm not used to it anymore. It's hard! Give me a break!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Hi, Asta -

We love your meditation outfit - it's so colorful! You are quite a dog - we have never been to New York. Mama's family is from the Big Apple so she really knows her way around the city. Maybe you can come to southeastern Connecticut and visit me. Kaci lives in New Hampshire so we would have to have her visit here too.

Your shopping trips look like so much fun!

Love -


Hi, Asta -

We love your blog!
