Happy Birthday Mum!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, mates! After recovering from the wine and cheese paw-ty, my mum took some time to celebrate her B-day yesterday! Unfortunately, I'm in Oz and mum was celebrating with her mates in Jerusalem. Dad sent mum a dozen roses and then she went to the famous American Colony Hotel for a drink (or 2). This photo shows mum last summer (my winter) when she was digging on Crete. She's holding the excavation director's terrier, Hercules. Mum doesn't take me to her digs, because then I would have to go through quarantime for 30 days to get back into Australia. Mum says quarantine isn't much fun. I would like to try archaeology because I dig all the time in the garden. I think I'd be a really good archaeologist - much better at it than mum is, but she says I'm not allowed to chew the bones. What kind of archaeology is that???? So, I'm stuck in Melbourne playing with the 4 cairn terriers and going walkies with Ellen. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention - my mum is jealous that my blog gets more hits than hers does!

Happy Birthday, Asta's Mom!!!

I'm envious of your mom at all these cool places Asta! I'm sorry that you can't go on the "dig" with your mom, you'd be a great digger! But you can't eat those bones!! Nice that she got roses for her birthday:)

Happy Birthday!!:)

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Happy Birthday to Asta's mummy.
Asta you'll just have to continue your archeology practice at home.
Quarantine is not a place you want to go - I heard it's like jail for dogs !!


Asta said...

Happy Birthday to your Mum, tell her not to be jelous, you can't help being a magnet for all your friends..I bet you'd make a great archeologist, but I do think you're supposed to put stuff down once you find and dig it up
my Mummy is not going to be here tommorrow, but maybe sunday we can chat?
love and smoochie kisses

Hey Asta,
Tell your Mama Happy Birfday from us! We bet you'll be happy when she is home with you. We hear that quarantine thing is NO FUN at all. You are better off digging at home, hehehe. Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hey Asta, I'm sure you'd make an excellent archaeologist but it would be too tempting with all those bones, wouldn't it?! J x

Those old bones can't be very tasty anymore anyway! My doggie mom just had her birthday too -- 11 years old. We had doggie ice cream but no bones. What she really needs is a bath for her birthday!

My Mom's friend used to go on digs years ago in Jordan and Greece, among other places. She didn't pick up bones though. She picked up old money!

Tell your mom Happy Birthday for me --

Happy Barkday AstaMama !!!!

Hi Asta,
What your mon does sounds like so much fun! Although I certainly think that you'd do a much better job at the digging than her. Hmm they really don't know how to appreciate help, do they?
Happy Birthday to your mom!!

Oh.. I hope your mum had a great birthday. :)

Hey Asta

You must miss your mum so much when she is away digging, but she must miss you so much too.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Love from your friend, Hammer
