Getting Ready for Mum & Meme

Some of you asked me about what kind of welcome home pawty we are planning for mum. She's going to be pretty tired from the 20 hour flight and the 10 hour stopover in Bangkok, so we're just doing something simple. Something else that I haven't told you about me is that we live across the street from a pub - the Brandon. Dad likes this aspect of Australia a lot and mum says it's like having our own pwivate beer tap. Mum and dad met the Figgs here. So the Figgs are bwinging me home on July 20 and we're all going to the pub to celebwate! Mum will be packing next weekend, so she won't be helping me post, but she may have time to help me visit some of my pals. In the meantime you can read some more about me:

Maggie said...

Pain in the Asta!!!!! That's not nice! Hey Asta, you're only 2 1/2 years old and you roll over! Mom has been trying to get me to do this for years. I guess this means you're smarter than me!

Love ya lots,

Amber-Mae said...

Joe Stains said...

That is so cool you live right by a pub, I am jealous. Do they have good food???

Gus said...

My Dad loves Pubs. Community is one of his "things" and he says that pubs build true community. I think I would like them too!

Can't wait til you can cuddle up to your mom again. Happy reunion!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
Sure you all will have fun in that pub. Your mom will be happy!
Thanks for sharing those things about you.
Did you have chicken necks for breakfast?? I need to talk with my mom!!
Have a good night

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Asta!
Oh wow, this pawty for your mom sounds great!!
You like rope toys? I hardly get them cos Mom hates picking up those strand of ropes left behind by me all over the place. LOL!
PS : Mom studied at RMIT and she loves Melbourne. She stayed at South Yarra area.

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Asta,
My dad was real impressed when I told him my friend lives across the street from a pub.. and said something abt 'dream come true'..heheh..
Mom and dad used to live near La Porchetta when we were in Melbourne and that was the closest we ever got.. ok, that's not a pub huh..
Wow ur mom has a 10hr stopover in BKK?! I'm sure she'd love the pawty!

Scrappy said...

WoW Asta do you get to go to the pub?

Tail wags

Oscar Airedale said...

Are you allowed in the pub, how cool! Huryy home mum!

jaffeboy said...

I think for welcome party, U should get her a big Roo tail. If she can't finish it, U can sure "help" her with.

Oh, I do roll over too. It's a neat trick eh?!

Tadpole said...

In regards to #19, I do that too. But they always seem to come alive again, so you have to shake them again and again!

Stanley said...

Asta Baby!

I think your nickname Pain in the Asta is pretty funny, but I'll NEVER actually call you that.

Do you ever belly up to the bar at the pub? Will you for your mum's pawty?

Tell your mama we can't wait for you guys to be together again! (Maybe your dad will finally have clean underwear... I don't have insider information or anything, but from what you said it sounds like he's *completely* helpless without your mum)!

Goober love,

Bogart said...

Hehehe... pain in the Asta...


coco said...

wow you are going to have a wonderful pawty when your mum gets home! that 20-hour flight sounds frightful, though - she will sure be tired after flying that long!!

i laughed at the idea of how you kill your rope toy!! haha!! you are such a fun pup, asta!!

smoochies, coco
