Presents From Asta

Hi hi everyone! Me hopes you be having a nice weekend. Me do be. The sun finally came out here, whee!

The other day a parcel arrived from Asta in New York. Now Asta first sended this before me even came to live here, but for some reason (maybe related to me or big Harry eating the note the postman left to say he had taked the package to the post sorting office cos mummy and daddy beed out when he came), the parcel got sended back to Asta. Anyway, they sended it back again, and this time it arrived safely.

Me be cheeky girl and me no wanted to share, so me taked it in the garden.

Me keeped it in my mouthie and ran all around the garden cos me beed very excited, this be first parcel all for meeeeeeee!

Big Harry said he could help open it with his big teethies, but me still no wanted to give up my parcel.

But eventually me admitted me couldn't get it open even though me has all my big girl teethies now.

Me taked my parcel inside to give to mummy to open.

This be one of the things in the parcel. It be a strawberry flavoured ice cream town toy. You make it really wet, then freeze it and it be good to chew on. Mummy has looked lots for a toy like this without luck, so we beed impressed.

There beed another toy, which me stealed straight away, there be some photos of that further down, but there also be these two yummy looking chews. They supposed to be for big Harry, but me said he could share them with me cos me be a generous sister, tee hee!

After a couple of hours in the freezer, the ice cream cone be all lovely and cold.

It be great to chew on, and less messy than ice cubes. Even better, you can just keep putting it back in the freezer, whee! Yes, me know me be pulling yet another silly face here. Mummy keeps saying if the wind changes, me will stay like this, tee hee!

After me had had a good chew on the ice cream cone, mummy breaked open the flossies. At first me wasn't too sure cos me no has had many chewies before, but it smelled so yummy that me got going straight away. Bagpuss hoped me would share, but there was no way me be sharing with a CAT!

Big Harry wasted no time getting started on his chewie. It actually lasted him half an hour, which is a record by a long way as normally a treat is crunched and gone. His snozzle lasted well too, so American treats seem a good choice!

Me couldn't resist playing the clown with mine!

Peace and quiet for mummy and daddy! Mine lasted me 3 chewie sessions cos although me got my big teethies now, me still no be up to big Harry's standard.

A happy big Harry!

And here be the last present, a Wubba all of my own! Me has Oscar's yellow Wubba, but me always has to be extra careful not to damage it or lose it, but now me has one all of my own. Mummy says this one be a god size to put in her pocket to play with on walkies.

This be a great size to fit on your mouthie for some good squeaking!

And me had some good games of fetch. Mummy says please ignore the washing basket, messy mummy.

Even big Harry looked interested, but he still didn't play. Silly boy just doesn't seem to understand how much fun toys be. Me often takes my toys to him to play with, but he just doesn't care.

He says he's too busy looking handsome for playing games, tee hee!

Thank you so much for our pressies Asta, you be a sweet girl. Sorry the silly postman sended it back to you. We will be waving when you flies over England on your way to Italy. Have a gelato for us, OK?

Cubby said...

What good presents! Don't give up on Harry and toys. I didn't play with toys the first years the moms had me. Then I played only by myself. Then I learned to play with the moms with toys. Now finally, after almost three years, I play with Dakota with toys!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Holy Barks!!!

The wubba is the best thing ever! I love to but the bigger ball on my back teeth and squeek it until my humans ears look like they are about to bleed! Woohoo for Wubbas!!! That was so nice of Asta to send you presents! Woohoo for good friends!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley and Harry take great pictures.

Hi Cassidy,
What a nice lot of pressies. Glad to see that you shared a chewy with your big brother. They look awesome. Where they made from achilles? Mum is always on the lookout for chews that will last Dixie more than 20mins. She has very sharp strong teeth that allow her to chew through anything almost.
Have fun with your new toys.

Awe, Asta is such a sweet girl to send you all those gifts. The ice cream thingy looks really cool. I wonder if they have any of those here in Kansas. I am so happy for you and your package

Kirby said...

What a wonderful package from Asta! That ice cream cone is so cool, I bet that will get tons of use this summer. He he! I sure hope you enjoyed your flossies and have fun with your wubba. I was just running around with mine a minute ago. I like to wait till everyone is all sleepy then I run around and squeek it at everyone. He he!

Your pal,

Bogart said...

Oo, lovely stuff! Cassidy, you're looking like such a big girl these days!

What an awesome package - sure worth the extra wait I think!!


Penny & Poppy said...

That was really nice of Asta to send you all those presents! We would sure like to try that ice cream cone! Big Harry is just way too dignified to play with toys...much like Penny, but even she can't resist the Wubba!

You, girl, are SO STINKIN' CUTE!! We here in GooberStan LOVE your silly faces, especially when you add your flossie cigar.

That Asta is a very sweet pupgirl, and sends the best presents! I'm so glad you finally got it. It was worth the wait wasn't it?

Tell Harry that he can still be handsome AND play with you. Stella is ALWAYS bringing her toys to me and shoving them in my face. Sometimes I ignore her (cuz I'm a busy dog), but most of the time I jump right up & play with her! Just snuggle up to Harry and start smooching on him... I'll be that will get his attention.

Goober love & smooches,

Jessie and Jake said...

you guys are sooooooooooooooooo lucky!

wally said...

Fan-tastic stuff! I do like the frozen ice cream thingy. I may need one of those come summer. The ma ape says i cannot eat an endless supply of frosty paws. Alas.
