Ooh, a road trip. My mom and I are taking one of those in a few weeks. I think she should let me help out with the driving, what do you think?

Ah, Asta is back.
Nice trip, wasn't it?
I'm so tempted to tell you something but my mom just gave me the look: "NO".
I'll be quiet then.

OMD, Asta...what a totally cool room with all the glass windows you got to play in!!!!! It's ginormous!! That little fuzzbrat has grown even since we were in New York!! He's gonna weigh 40lbs!!

Mumsie was droolin' at the lasagne and we were all admirin' the pawfectly set table...very fall-like and bootiful!

Aren't crunchy leaves the best? We try to get em all stuck in our fur and bring em inside so we can romp with them and be all nice and warm...sorta like havin' ur cake and eatin' it too!!

Sigh..have to go and put away groceries...a daughter's work is never done....

Barkies and SO GLAD UR HOME!!!

Hi Kousin Asta,

What a bootiful place you were at in Norf Carolina! Looks like you had a great time. How nice that you were able to take your friends with you. You and little fuzzbwat have a lot of fun together.

I wish I could dig into that lasagna. It looks wonderful!

Looking forward to seeing more photos...

Anne said...

It look like a really pawsome trip for you and your family.

I have a maltese neighbour who came to invade my house and she also made herself at home and explore every part of my house and even eat my treats!!!


Stanley said...

Sweet FuzzButt Astaroni!


I'm so stinkin' glad you had yourself a good time in your home state. Did they throw you a welcome back parade?? (I wouldn't be surprised.)

It looks like you and the fuzzbrat found ways to get along and keep each other amused. I'm thinking it was probably nice to have somewhere so big to run around after that 11 hour car ride. You are one intrepid traveler!

Can't wait to hear more about your trip and see all of the food photos and photos of you and the FB (FuzzBrat). It's almost like you have your own Stellanator... wait a minute... you have the Duffinator! OH NOOOO!!! Watch out for the Duffinator!!!!!

Don't tell him he now has a monster name. It may give him ideas!

I missed your sweet face and now will send hot juicy goob smooches to cover it!

Goober love,

Ronin_The_Pug said...

Kisses and huuuuugs!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Duffy is so fluffy (hey it rhymes) and cute!! Do you think his mommi would mind if we swopped her puppy with our puppy? I am sure she would love Hershey.. and Hershey is such a good girl too **innocent look**.
The lasagna looks delicious.. oh and you must be the kind of guest that everyone loves! You even help out with the gardening!!

Simba and Jazzi said...

OMD, it took you longer to get there than to Rome, Asta! How did you survive, especially with little Duffy beside you?!

I can't wait to hear more about your trip; it looks like you were off to a great start.

I'm glad Bobo became your friend, too. Those bostons can be kind of persnickity at times.

Hi Asta
What a great place to spend Thanksgiving. All the fun stuff to explore outside and then when your're inside all those windows make you feel like you're still outside. I bet you had a blast.
Love Ruby

Moco said...

What a nice drive to a lovely home. We can tell all ready that your vacation was a wonderful one. I hope you wore Duffy out from all that playing.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...


Cool... nothing like a road trip. North Carolina looks beautiful. You and Duffy must of had fun running around in the yard with no lead. Little Duffy is a cutie, he is sure lucky to have you showing him the ropes.
