A Fun Weekend

G'day Pals,

The weekend started out on kind of a bad paw. Mum decided that I've rolled in so much possum poo the last 2 weeks that I needed a bath. She always takes me into the shower. It would be fun if not for all of that icky soap!

We had our usual 2 hour walk at the dog park. I will show photos of the dog park another time. It was the warmest day here in several months - about 68 F (20 C), so mum and dad decided to go to mum's favowite outdoor pizza place in Carlton and I got to come along! Mum always eats this weally gawlicky pizza, so I didn't get too many tweats, but it was a good 2 miles of walking after our 4 mile walk at the pawk. At the end of my day, dad gave me a tummy rub and he got a big kiss in return. We all had fun even though the pathetic Carlton Blues lost by 82 points! Australian rules football is played on a round field wif 3 sets of goal posts at each end: you get 6 points for getting the ball thwough the middle and 1 point for getting it twough the end posts. The same team pways offence and defence, and they can move the ball by running wif it, vollying it, or kicking it, so there is lots of scowing, but losing by 82 points is too much! Mum will take me on another long walk tomowow. 2 hours after we got home it started raining.

Sounds like fun (apart from the bath)! J x

Koobuss said...

You must have been exhausted, Asta, after all that walikng and a bath. At least you had fun for part of it.

Your team lost by 82 points? Oh dear. I hope that's football where you score a lot of point at one time and not basketball where you only get 2 points at a time or, worse yet, baseball with one point at a time.
I guess your team can only get better.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Asta said...

Bogart said...

Ohmygosh Asta, my mom and dad drag me into the shower with them as well. I don't really like it, but I've learned that if I just give them a sad look when my face is all wet, it goes faster. Give it a try.


Joe Stains said...

Mom is drooling hearing about your Mom's garlic pizza, she looves that garlic! sorry about your team losing :(

Amber-Mae said...

fee said...

oopsy, i hope that shower was over and done with in a jiffy and that you managed to keep some of that nice eau de possum poo on you!

thanks to you, mom finally got me a pig's ear! we always look at them in the store but she never got round to buying them because she thought it was weird to be chewing on someone's ear. but after seeing how much you enjoyed them, she changed her mind and decided that if you like them, they must be good! i finished my pig ear in less than 15 minutes! yum!


Bruin said...

Showers are NO FUN at all!

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Asta, Possum poop sounds like the best! Too bad your mumsie had to destroy that beeyoutiful scent by showering you. I love the shower; I like to sit on my mom's feet every morning in there. Once I fell asleep. Scruffy thinks I'm crazy. You must be tired from all of those walkies!

Chilli the Dog said...

Hiya Asta! got to eat pizza. Never tried them before cause mommy is a meanie. I would give any pizza a try even if it's a garliky one.

I hate baths too but the rubdown and tweats after that is always a welcome :)

Wet licks


ToFFee said...

hi Asta!

aside from the bath.. it looks like you had a great time at the park!

I'm having some delays now in blogging.. oh well..


Stanley said...

Asta Baby!!

You've been a busy girl! I bet those tummy rubs made the bath almost worth it! Your daddy is a kissie kind of guy, huh?

Your mama looks like she enjoyed that pizza, despite the loss of her team.

More tummy photos, please. Love that cute little tummy!

Goober love,

Bella said...

The pizza looks yummy - did you get to eat some?
You look very cute standing in the shower, have you managed to get the possum perfume back on you?

Amber said...

Hey Asta, what a fun day you had. you had great excercise. The pizza look gweat!!

Take care,

Charlie dog said...

Hi Asta

Baths yuk - pizza yum!!!

I'm a bit worried that the garlicky pizza may have caused you to develop a lisp just like the girl in Just William who ,scweems and scweems and scweems until she's sick', do you think you may need a bark therapist?

Huskee Boy said...

G'day Asta!
Mom loved to go to the Italian restaurants along Lygon too.. we miss them so much!! Did you go to Carlton park for your walkies?? Are the swans still there?
Apart from the bath, it appears that you have had a lot of fun!!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

That pizza place looks like great fun - did it make up for the BATH!?!?
Play bows,

Hercules said...

Oh Asta,

I HATE baths! I think walks are worth it though! I can't believe your team lost-such a bummer!


Maggie said...

I'll skip the bath but I'll have a slice of pizza please! That's what we had for dinner last night, well, that's what mom and dad had and a snitched a crust!
