First Day of Petey's sleep over

Well yestewday was the fiwst day of my fwiend Petey's sneepovew, and we got wight down to ouw oosual westling ovew the tennis ball ..two stubbown tewwiews..it's a dwaw!!

latew that day auntie Kawen came by and we bof enticed hew to thwow the ball fow us

Petey is way mowe patient than I am..I'm like a jumping bean

Mango pointed out that my videos have that Blaiw Witch pwoject feel about them with Mommi's wiggly camewa technique, hehehehe...she's just no good at playing and filming at the same time..and we'we hawed to follow..so sowwy if any of you get dizzy watching these

little naps wewe taken in between(notice what I did to my footie..I chewed it. and it's now bettew, but Mommi shaved it to put medcin on it
we wewe hoping Daddi was about to come home, so we would have yet anothew playmate
but Mommi is the only one we can weally con into endlessly thwowing ow kicking the ball

we settld down to some TV watching in bed, and of couwse Mommi immediately distoowbed us wif the camewa
I was checking on Petey..he was concked out

so I joined him in tandem snoozing

Daddi thought this was funny..Mommi, not so much hehehehe

just when we weally got into a deep sneep...Daddi dwagged us out fow a last walk

when we came back, we bof assumed the cowwect position fow a midnight cookie snack

As you can imagine, aftew ouw walk we wewe enewgised again, and couldn't undewstand why my pawents wanted to sneep...hoomans awe weiwd!!!

anyway we had a gweat fiwst day..we'll see what intewesting mischief we can find tomowwow..we'we helping Mommi paint a pictoowe, and hew haiw..should be fun, heheheh

BTW...My dawling fwiends Opus and Roscoe (the ones I visited in Italy) have had theiw magic flying van go missing...pleez be on the lookout fow it in youw neighbowhood, and if you see it, snap a pictoowe and tell Opus and Roscoe..they awe despewately twying to get it back


Deetz said...

The video made me a lil dizzy, but don't be sorry it was wonderful to watch you two playing...that floor is the best for sliding on, you are so lucky. lol....that picture of you sleeping on your back is priceless!!! You were really snoozing for sure...I see an extra pair of leggies, those must be your mummy's...she was probably tired from throwing the ball.
I hope your daddy is doing alot better, we was so worried and we would like for Auntie Kawen to have a paper towel cast full of my slobber....its the best medicine ever..Do you need one for your footie?

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Asta! How is your family doing? Is your Aunt Karen feeling any better? An how about your dad? If he took you on a walk, then it sounds like he is doing much better than he was! I still send lots of ESP out your way every day!

Now for that ball, can I play! I like to play ball too! Well, really...I like to steal the ball when someone else has it, otherwise I could care less...Hehehe!

Looks like you two are having a grand old time! Try not to use up all of your energy in one day.


Ruby Bleu said...

Wow...how fun having a sleepover!!! I hope you stay cool...sounds like it is still pretty hot back east!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Moco said...

That sleep over looks like great fun. Everyone was worn out from chasing balls and taking pictures.
We have not seen the flying bus yet, but will keep our eyes open for it.

PB 'n J said...

Oh it looks like you're having a great time! Mommy wants to know if she can hire you both to come tire out Georgie :-)

Jans Funny Farm said...

It must be fun to have a friend stay over. Looks like you're keeping busy.

We hope your family are doing okay.

All who know about the missing van are on the lookout for it. It is really getting around. Wonder who has it and where it is?

Oh that sure does look like fun - I need someone to run around and be crazy with!

Lenny said...

It looks like you are having a great time with Petey. He's really cute. That's what I do to my paws - clean them! - all the time. My parents don't like that. Is your paw itchy?

Your friend, Lenny

Hi, Asta -

You and Petey look like you are having a great time together. The way you two play ball is the way Kaci and I (Hershey) play with our stuffies. I sometimes take Kaci's to play with and she will take some of mine to play with. We love driving our Mamas crazy.

Lately I have been taking my mousie, duck and any other stuffie I can find outside. Mama and Papa don't like that very much but it's so much fun!

Kaci is here now and will be here for a couple of weeks. We are already having as much as you and Petey - we have already been wrestling with each other.

Have a great weekend!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Petra said...

Asta, you are so lucky to have Petey stay with you. You guys look like best friends! I love the way you sleep side-by-side. Have fun, and don't get into too much trouble!

Well, on second thought, ignore the last sentence.

Dewey Dewster said...

Lizzy said...


Wow, you and Petey are sure having a BLAST! I'm enjoying reading about all the fun you're having together... I absolutely LOVE the photos of you both on the bed snuggling together, hee hee.

I hope you have a grrrrEAT weekend!


Snowball said...

Isn't it pawsome to have a friend to stay over? You are a good girl to be sharing the bed with petey.


Mack said...

You have such a great friend in Petey. And he is so lucky to have a great friend like you!

If I see the van anywhere I promise I will let you know - I'll be on the lookout!!

Sassy Kat said...

What fun, an overnight guest. Looks like you both are having a blast. So nice that your mom keeps playing with you. I think she is trying to wear you out so you two will sleep the night through. Glad you have the poster up about the magical flying van. Sure hope the boys get it back. I have been fielding calls about sightings.

Agatha and Archie said...

Well we have never had a sleep over.....and imagine that you just let Petey sleep right there on the bed..You are the PERFECT hostess,and you even offer midnight snackies......What a lovely hotel...!! Love and kisses A+A have you ever considered opening up your house like a hostel? Just a thought.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I can see that you, Petey and your mom are having fun!
Glad your Dad is doing so well!
I hope your mom is feeling well too!
Kisses and hugs

Bogart H. Devil said...

Hehehe Miss Asta, you're SO SMART for bringing over several toys rather than just one... I love watching your videos!


Amber-Mae said...

Asta, you're ver5y cute in returning the ball to mommi & then dropping it on the floor for her to throw again. I never do that! I will grip it tightly & make my hoomans play tug-o-war with me 1st & then finally I will let go. That long hall sure is a good place to throw ball. My hoomans throw my ball out in the porch. It's not very long tho but it's good enuf! Hey, have you tried playing Umbrella Hockey before? I invented that game two years ago. And I go CRAZY the moment my hoomans take an umbrella coz I know they're gonna play umbrella hockey with me. They just place my tennis ball on the ground & they will use the umbrella to hit it. And then it will go flying out in the porch & I will try & catch it as fast as possible! It's absolutely fun & I recommend you to try it especially when you have such a very long hall in your apartment...

Hi Asta and Petey,
We managed to watch the videos without becoming nauseous lol.
When Willow heard the squeeky toys she went upstairs and got her pinky piggy that Faya sent her...isn't that so cute. We hope you and Petey are having lots of fun together. Hugs to you all and a special dale hug to Auntie Karen.

Princess Patches said...

Hey, Asta! Looks like you and Petey are having a blast!

Is your mommi having any trouble with her pee-mail? Someone sent us an e-mail that was also sent to your mommi and now we can't get any e-mails at all. We think it has a virus and just wondering if you were having any trouble with your 'puter. Everything else is okay...it's just our e-mail. If you get this, can you leave a comment on our bloggy and let us know, please? THANKS!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, Petey looks like the perfect house guest and you're the perfect hostess, letting him share the bed. I probably would have shoved him off! Hehehe! J x
