Soggy LonGisland and ASTA 's Advice column

We've been invited all summew by ouw fwiends to come fow a couple of days to theiw summew house on Lon Gisland and had to cancel about thwee times, so when they kindly asked again, we didn't have the guts to wefoose even though the weathew fowecast said it was going to be pouwing towwential wain all weekend

As pwedicted, it was wet and soggy , BUT, thewe wewe sometimes a few minutes when it stopped and I managed to escape out the doow (neawly giving Mommi a heawt atttack cause thewe is no fence)
finally, she said that I could go out as long as she and Daddi wewe thewe to catch me if I twied to go awound to the stweet

I fiwst went out all tied up..it was OK, but I wanted to wun like the wind

the fiwst day, it just didn't happen(xept the bwief heawt stopping) escapes,
cause the wain WEALLY stawtedto come down in buckets
so I decided to eat evewything in sight instead

thewe wewe yummie clams


and fwesh cwisp salad      
(can you believe it? I love salad even)

some pasta

and I got some of all of those things

 (guilt wowks..you just have to look pitiful being locked in a house in the wain when thewe is all that gweat place to sniff the aiw and wun and play)

and hewe is the video of me wunning wild, hehehehe

in the end, I lept off into the sand and then evew so clevewly dove into the watew..Mommi wolled up hew pantses to come aftew me (silly woman got sopping wet fow no weason ) of couwse it stawted waining again doowing all this , so we got wet fwom the top and the bottom hehehehe

I just wanted to swim, and swim I did fow about fifteen minutes..glowious!!!!!!!
(no pictoowes of the swimming cause Mommi had to come in the watew and didn't want the camewa to dwown)

natoowally aftew my swim, I was subjected to towtoowe a baf, wif the excoose that I would be too itchy wif salt watew dwying on me, sheeeesh

then I took one last look and said goobye to the sea
(natoowally , just as we wewe leaving, the sun came out)

when I got home, thewe was a message fwom ouw beloved Mayow, Fwankie Fuwtew  fwom Blogville asking if I could be any help to all the woggies getting weady to go to the PAWM  (he is owganising it fow back to school days)
It seems many woofies awe having issues about getting dates, ow wanting to go alone and pawhaps meeting someone thewe

They cleewly need advice.......SO.............
I have decided to be an advice columnist and answew all those pesky pwoblems if I can
Fwankie thinks I can do this cause I live in NEWYAWK CITY and am in the pwime pawty section of town whewe any night of the week the stweets awe full of young giwls going out to dinnew and dancing ow simply teetewing along the cobble stones on theiw 8"platfowm heels while holding on to theiw date

I hope he's wight in his twust in me and I can answew youw questions
if you want to peemail me, my addwess is astawire@gmail.com

smoochie kisses

Asta... I LOVED your video... I have watched it clear through TWICE and have throughly enjoyed every second.
What a WONDERFUL location and a beautiful BEACH and Deck fur you to both ROMP and RELAX.

Now some of the questions that came in to ME.. Yesterday were:
What if I don't have a DATE? Could I still go to the PAWm?
Should I tell everybuddy that I NEED a Date... on my Blog... I do hate to BEG... What should I SAY??
MY MOM says I am too YOUNG to go? How old do you have to be.. to go to a PAWm?? I'm just 2.
Should I ask "my special girrrl" on MY blog ... or HERS??

NOW... you see why I (Frankie Furter) Was soooooo NOT up to answering these.. IMPAWtant questions. I know that everbuddy will be in Good Paws with YOU. You are Ever so Sophisticated and such!! THANKS GIRRRRRL.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OH Squirrels... Ooops sorry about that.. Butt I furgot these questions ..
I hope you can answer all of them.

?? I am a mixed breed... do you think that I could dare to ask.. a Pure Bred Girrrrrrl???

?? I don't know HOW to DANCE. No boys will ask me to go.. I just know it. What am I gonna do???

?? Where will I even LOOK fur a Date???
SEE, Asta... I told you. I had about 87 emails and they really WANT Dates and HELP and stuffs.. It is all WAY over MY Head..
THANKS fur lending me a paw with this mess... ummm I mean IMPAWtant stuffs.

Despite the rain, it looked like a pretty ddarned wonderful weekend. And dear friend, you are a beautiful runner...I would love to chase up and down the knolls at my favorite park with you, two gorgeous streaks on green dappled by sunlight through the oak trees.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Miss Asta. Oh that food looked so yummy and now I know how you keep looking so fit and trim. You are an excellent runner. Is there nothing you can't do? No worries, and love, Stella

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta ... Sissie ... your trip to Long Island looks like it was a great smilemaker for everyone ... despite the rain. It sure made Moma smile when she read about it and watched you run.

We are trying hard to work our way backwards and find out just what we have been missing in your life. We think the idea of your becoming an Advice Columnist is perfect for you ... we know no one else who could be a better role model or provide better solutions to dilemmas. You are so chic and so experienced. Good job for landing that responsibility. Maybe it will help to take your mind off the rainy (or hot?) weather that is prob'ly still around the corner.

Love you so much, Sissie. That doesn't change. Even when we're gone for a long long time.
BruvverJake and SissieFergi

Your trip looks like it was all kinds of fun! I'm glad you went, despite the crazy weather!


Gus said...

That looks like a sooper adventue on Long Gisland.

Now, as to this advice column. Would you give me some advice on how to maintain a long distance romance with the world's most popular pup? When my muzzer is not cooperating.

many kisses

Wyatt said...

What a great summer get away! We know all about being wet terriers, we don't mind one bit!
So, you are giving love advice now....I'm sure we have many questions for you, Asta!

Wyatt and Stanzie

Sally said...

Wow Asta - those were some great action packed moves!

We could not think of a better advice columnist then you! I think Paddy might write to you - he is quite shy and would like to date but would not know how to go about it.

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Lucky girl - off on hollingdays AGAIN!! It was funny that you kept goin' to the next door porch!!! he he he!

You looked really happy.

I'm sure you will give excellent advice for those goin' to the pawm.

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

The Black and Tans. said...

Oh Asta we just loved watching you whizz about on the grass and then into the water. You Mommi is very talented being able to film you, keep the camera steady and chase after you while rolling up her trouser legs at the same time. Hee heee, it did make us chuckle a lot.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

Dexter said...

I am sure your dating advice will be most sought after. Even, I, Mango, have a question.... I will peemail it to you in privates.

Gosh Miss Asta, what fun to run on that nice grass! I could hear it squishing in the video! I would luv to find a date for the PAWM and I'm wondering if you could help me find someone to accompawny me. I hope there's a nice gentledog in Blogville who would appawciate an older, pleasingly plump-type lady who can still dance up a storm! My brudder Dillon would love to go too, he doesn't dance as much as he used to but he is as nice as they come and would make someone a super date! Thank you, Miss Asta!
