NewHamstew pawt 2

I woke up to a bootiful New Hamstew Mowning (btw...I didn't see any Hamstews ..old ow new...vewy disappointing..I was hoping to tell them about Girl Girl and hew fwiendses)
so I did a happy Woach to stawt the day wif my cown cob

Daddi watched while he had his coffee

then a little excewcise to get the blood mooving

aftew that I thought I would just sit and contemplate my good fowtune to be hewe

Auntie Kawen came out so I wan to gweet hew...I'm always happy to see hew

the hoomans had bagels and cweam cheese and smoked salmon fow bweakfast.....Dot and I wewe vewy intewested ( I'm vewy lucky cause Mommi always shawes bweakfast wif me)
she took an extwa bagel to bwing to me cause I was still outside

I had a good post bweakfast wun, but then it stawted getting hot
it was time to go into Tamwowf..theiw little town..whewe they wewe going to have a Fouwf of July Pawade...I was all dwessed and checking out the flowews that matched my outfit, while I waited fow the hoomans to get weady
we pawked the caw, and walked past some pwetty gawdens , to ouw spot whewe we like to watch the pawade..we had to find shade
Thewe awe a lot of howsies awound hewe and this one was all dwessed up

then came this scaiwy guy, I'm kind of glad he didn't spot me..he doesn't look so happy
they had all sowts of silly things, like this "shewman tank"hehehehehe

I liked this baby Mooo cow a lot
I have no idea what this was supposed to be...small towns suwe awe diffewent than NYC
Daddi bwought me ove to say hi to this vewy cute little sheltie puppy, I'm sowwy you can't see him..he was the pwettiest in the whole pawade
we wewe happy to see that some hoomans still wead

then came a whole bunch of vewy noisy fiwe twucks..but I didn't even flinch

as long as I was next to Daddi, I felt pawfectly fine

this is a pictoowe of all the females hooman ow dog fwom the house...Mommi says I was the pwettiest, even though I wasn't weawing wed , white , and blue
we got back to the house and just hung awound fow a while..it got too hot at that point..so evewyone had napses

fiwst Daddi checked me fow ticks

aftew ouw napses, we stwolled awound, and stawted to get weady fow the BBQ

we wewe going to eat outside today

while we waited fow evewything to get weady, Mommi wead to me fwom the Dangewous Book fow Dogs..(that was hew favowite cownew fow sitting, cause thewe was always a bweeze)
Hambuwgews, Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw and that was just the beginnning...then thewe was cake!!!..I had some of evewything except cake, cause that was chocolate..but I had a cookie instead....I think Mommi and I awe bof going on a diet aftew this weekend...
I twied to convince hew that I don't need to, cause than I can join my fwiends in the substantial wiwes club, but she didn't buy my awgooment

anothew pawfect day comes to an end...to be con't.

We tagged you for a MEME Asta.

Looks like you had a wonderful 4th. New Hampshire looks beautiful, we are sure you enjoyed it a lot. Sorry we haven't been by to visit sooner. Those darn weeds are taking up all Mommy's time.

Mommy meet a woofie on the 4th, we are going to post about her when we get the chance. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

Mack said...

That is one glorious spread!! Did you get any hot dogs??

I love the videos. I had a serious case of the zoomies last night like you had in that first video.
Mom said she wished she had her camera caused it doesn't happen very often with me!!

Looks like you had soooo much fun pretty Asta!
Take care,

Abby said...

Hi, Asta -

What a parade! That scawry guy really didn't look happy. The little cow was so cute.

Mama says that you are about an hour away from Kaci. Kaci is inland - the town is Gilmanton which is about 15 minutes away from Laconia. Grammy's house is near Gunstock Mountain.

We can't wait to see the rest of your pictures.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Our weekend was BORING compared to yours.

Faya said...

Quelle magnifique parade du 4 July ! J'adore le petit veau (bébé vache...). Mais la plus belle photo c'est celle de ton papy qui a vraiment l'air en pleine forme ! Ca fait vraiment plaisir.... Vous êtes si beaux tous ensembles et si heureux. Quelle belle famille et amis tu as !
Gros bisous, Faya

Sophie Brador said...

Looks fantastic Asta! Hey, your dad has a Montauk shirt. I know where that is, because I've been there! No ... actually, now that I think of it, that was MoHonk. It's practically next door to our friend's place in the Catskills. Can you believe mom took me someplace where cats have skills?


Gus said...

wowie...you do a great job at Zoomies. And I agree with whoever said you are the best looking female in the picture, but then, I am a wire, and I have a serious appreciation for other wirey types. Your Mommi and Aunt Karen are also bootiful, and everyone looks deleriously happy. MMMM...what kind of pawtinis were you drinkin?


Petra said...

You are one little trooper, Asta! You can keep up with your dad and mom without any problem, and they take you to beautiful places where you get scrumptious food.

The parade looked fun to me; those small towns know how to put on a show!

Ruby Bleu said...

All I can can is FUN!!! Just look at you run...you must have loved it!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Daisy said...

That parade looks like lots of fun! You look extra-cute in your little orange scarf.

Lady Kaos said...

What a cool day!!!

Unknown said...

Hey Asta! Your trip looks so great! I love parades too, though not always those fire trucks. I used to live in New Hamster for six years, so I know it is so nice! Thanks for the beautiful pictures!

Your friend, Lenny

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Happy fourth of July! We are a little late, but we have been having too much fun with Grandma and Grandpa. Hope you had a wonderful holiday, it looks like you are having fun. No one around here but us celebrated; Italians are so strange.

Your Big American Boys!

Deetz said...

Asta, what a wonderful vacation you are having. You look wonderful in your orange and to have flowers the same color..wow that is cool ...I loved watching you run really fast and up the stairs...Auntie Kawen always looks so happy to see you. You brighten her face alot. The food looks delicious for sure. Can't wait to hear about the rest of the trip

PB 'n J said...

It looks like you are having a great time Asta - sorry about the hamsters though!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Oooo, what a lovely time you had! Bagels? I've never even had a SNIFF of a bagel. I'm going to start working on my green card so I can come and live with you! Jx

Stanley said...

Sweetpea Astaroni!

THank you THANK YOU for the shots of your freckled tummy! Your freckles always make me wiggle with happiness!

You are definitely the biggest fashionista in New Hamster. I think our forefathers forgot to mention how prominently the color orange figured into the revolution!

Sorry no hamsters, but it looks like you got to be your crazy self and of course, brought joy to all the hoomans there. (I think your mommi shouldn't read to you from that book, though. You and all of our terrier friends have too many crazy ideas already!)

Goober love & smooches,
Your Stanley Boy

Deb Cushman said...

We just caught up on your adventure. What fun you had! So much room to run and such a huge house. Everyone looks like they had a good time, with lots of talking and eating. Isn't grass delicious?!!!

(Did you ever see any hamsters?)
Binkies, Freckles

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh for heaven's sake, Asta...where are the new baby Hamsters?? I keep lookin' for em...ya really didn't even see one?? What fraud!

Ok...first of all, where did you get that 'dorable foxy bandana??? OMD...it's fabulous!!!

Secondly...um...U LOOK SO MUCH LIKE SCRUFFY I HAD TO ROLL ON THE FLOOR AND LAUGH!!!!! That's the first I've ever seen the "live" you outside chasin' a ball...other than ur face is a tad lighter and ur missin' some spots...UR SCRUFFY. Wow...I don't think Babystan and I are gonna get over this one. The family resemblance is uncanny. AND...when someone reached for ur face to wipe the eye gunkies outta ur eyes...YOU GAVE THE SIGNATURE BIRCHURST GRRROWL!!!!! Oops...there I go on the floor again...Oh Asta dear...I'm not laughing at you...it's just u are so awesomely cool and Scruffy is so um...well Scruffy...that it's hard to imagine you and he are twinnys....it most definitely is the fraternal type...NO WAY ur his identical twin. I KNOW ur breath smells like the summer breeze...not like a cow patty like his!!!!!


Pee Ess..wow...that parade..was well...um...lets say ya coulda pushed ur lawnmower in it!!!!!

Lizzy said...


When I first saw the title of this post, I thought you guys got a new pet hamster! But then I realized you were in in a place called that, so I was like, "Ooooooh!", and now it all makes sense. Hee hee...

Man, you seem to be having a BLAST! I liked the video of you running around to get your blood moving, you look like you're having fun!


Agatha and Archie said...

WHOA..how cool was this trip??We are ASTOUNDED at all that grass and more so that you got to run in it!! We have never seen so much!!!!!!!But lets really talk here....A BAGEL???!!!!! YOU GOT A BAGEL?????phew this is a weekend to remeber..!!! Love A+A( well once we did get a bagel chip....does that count?)

Deefor said...

That New Hamster place looks really nice. A little like going to the mountains here. Nice big lawn to run around on and good food. Glad you had a happy weekend.


Joe Stains said...

You look so happy running around on your rope, what a great time. Mom is from a real small town and agrees they DEFINITELY do stuff different there! The food looks AMAZING!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
You won't need a diet after all that excercise!
The parade looks pawesome too!
Yummy food!
i hope you Dadi did not find any thick on you!
Kisses and hugs

Moco said...

What a wonderful time you are having on your weekend. Small town parades are quite fun and sometimes pretty silly.
Don't you wish you had the great yard to run in all the time?

meemsnyc said...

We really enjoyed the photos Asta, looks like your family is really enjoying themselves on vacation! We love the cow photo in the parade!

Koobuss said...

Hi Asta!!

What a fun place that is where you were!

No wonder you were so tired. I think they were working you too hard, especially in that second video. If your Mommi wants the ball so badly, let her go get it. I also like the way you spoke up for yourself. You are a real fox terrier, my friend. That is one of our most notable traits. We always let others know what we are thinking, even if we have to tell them to buzz off.

That thing that you were wondering about is a spreader. We have them around here to spread fertilizer and weed killer on our lawns. First we put something on the grass to kill the weeds, then we put something else on the grass to make it grow so that we can cut it more often. Go figure. You don't have these problems in the city.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Wooo Asta! What fun you are having. I loved your zoomie videos!!!

Dewey Dewster said...


Can't believe ya didn't get all wrapped up in that long line ya was tied ta. Anytime we got tied up like that we were stuck on everything in sight.

That was a nice parade and the BBQ looked like a bunch of fun...not ta mention delish....the naps were probably very welcome....
