Puppies,hammies and kitties sit back because you are NOT GOING TO BELIEVE OUR DAY YESTERDAY! Someone unbelievably special came to visit us...US ..A+A!!!!(oh yeah and PL1+2 TOO)

Archie is still in a state of shock........and has his head bowed in disbelief( I think it looks like he is smelling his feet but he got mad when I said that and said he wasn't)

It was a usual day,I was doing a little cleaning and was going to bake some cookies,Archie was working on a post to explain the clicker box game for all of you, and the bell rang.........AND IT WAS ASTA"S MOM AND DAD!!!!!!!!(of course PL2's photography is not really the best in all of these shots..In fact it STINKS because she has CUT OFF EVERYONES HEAD...geesh)Here we are really checking that it is really her....IT WAS!!!!!

And here is Asta's DAD!!!(of course how could you tell because PL2 cut his head off......) but trust us it was.....

OK you know who else must be here!! We started to check all of their bags......but she didn't come...Asta was at Petey's helping him get ready for Paris( Of COURSE we did not tell Archie who Petey was going with)

Now you will not believe this....Asta's Mommy walked into my bomb shelter room and said"I know what is here!! Agatha's BOMB SHELTER!" many humans would know that!! I was FLOORED!!!!!!!! are not going to believe what happened next.....I went to show her the entrance( there are several entrances but this is the main one...)

AND I LET HER COME IN!!! Well really wouldn't you..I mean how smart is she.. and she got right down to get in( You got it..... PL2 cut off her head......)

Then I showed her how you can really relax in here (see my crossed paws?) and told her she was invited any time..)

Here we are still in a state of disbelief looking at Atsa's Dad.........

Then I had been waiting for this to happen..Archie fainted......right while he was getting a tummy scritch........He was overcome with emotion( you know him, a little emotional at times.. ask Lacie)

Then we were so wiped out from all of that we stayed home and they went on to meet...( Eric sit down buddy)..........TOFFEE AND RILEY!!!!!!!!!(Isn't this just a STUNNING coat she had on??)

And look good Boston taste Toffee's PL wore a lobster hat as a welcome to Boston to Asta's Mom and Dad.......(This is birthday eve for Riley.. He is so excited can't you tell!!)

FINALLY!!!! She got her head!!!!!Asta's Mom walking Toffe and Riley!

It was bit chilly out there so Toffee and Riley went back home( well Riley had to rest up for his birthday today) and then all of the PL's went out for.....Well what would you eat on a cold cold day in Boston???????? CHOWDER!!!!!!!! A wonderful time was had by all but it was too quickly over.....As for us?? We still can't believe it happened....... Look I am in such a state that I am actually sleeping NEXT to my brother........

That is so exciting that you met Asta's people. Very cool that you let her into your Bomb Shelter Agatha. What a great day.

I have taken your advice to lock up my toys. My best stuffies are going to be hidden in the closet and only come out when the puppy is in his crate.

Your friend,

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh my dog, you were so so so honoured!

please give Asta's peeps a big Marvin and Jeannie hug from us in Scotland!

Mind you, the way things are going here, with my J going to aus, to see Opy and Charlie, she may even manage some time soon to call in on you pups too!

this was a lovely post!

lotsalicks, Marvin xxxxx

Asta said...

Aggie and Archie

I'll NEVEW fowgive them!!!!!!!!!
They didn't take me along..I soooo wanted to meet you and get tips on nuwsing and give Archie some CPW fwom Lacie..honestly hoomans!

As faw as cutting off Mommi's head..she said Thank dog..that's how she looks the best anyway, heheh, and How dould you Not cut off Daddi's head..he's just too tall to fit into a pictoowe..they said they adowed you and want to come back vewy soon..They bettew incloode me next time
!smoochie kisses

the many Bs said...

now this is very cool. you are soooo lucky to get to meet Asta's mommi and daddi. and don't worry about cutting off their heads, we see their heads all the time at Asta's blog. hee hee!

we can't believe that you, Agatha, actually let Asta's mommi look inside your bomb shelter. that is so cool. did you sniff Asta's scent all over her? was it delicious smelling? we bet it was because Asta looks like she wears lovely pawfume.

this is a great occasion. maybe next time Asta will come to visit you too. that would probably be way too much for Archie to handle.

so what are those things you are wearing on your noses? yours is red and Archie's is blue (we think). do you wear those things all the time?


Gus said...

We are very jealous! Sometimes we dream about meeting Asta's mommi and Daddi, and we have talked to Mommi on the phone...but IN PERSON. Sigh. We may be closer than we were in Azrizona, but it is still far away.

We hope you gave them lots of kisses for all of us wirey folks who love them


Jake of Florida said...

How pawsome is that!!!! Boston, New York --- famous beloved people go visit those places. But here in Plantation, Florida -- it just doesn't happen.

We are jelly -- but oh so happy for you!!!

Love and wirey woofs -- Jake and Just Harry

(We did meet Joey'd dad this afternoon on the golf course, so that counts, doesn't it?????)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

It is SO fun to get to meet bloggie buds. Sorry Asta wasn't there, but maybe next time. We got to meet T-Bone Beasley and his momma over V-Day weekend.Glad you had such a great time. Smooches, BabyRD & Hootie

Molly the Airedale said...

That is so cool that Asta's mommi got right down on the floor to see your bomb shelter first-hand! We hope Asta gets to tag along next time!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Agatha...Scruffy company looks terrifying...I mean NO HEADS?? No wonder poor Arch fainted...that pic of Asta's Daddy is truly frightenin' does he think without a head????

We're in shock and awe you let Asta's mommi into your bomb wants to know if PL2 ran the sweeper under the bed prior to the visit?? Tough day for the housekeeper when the company runs and LOOKS UNDER THE BEDS...I mean, you know the adage..."it's not like (company's name inserted here) is going to LOOK UNDER THE BED!!!" And you have photographic proof...Asta's mom ran right for the bed...course she doesn't have a head so she probably couldn't see much...

Mumsie wants to know if she and Asta's mom can come up to Boston...maybe this summer together? And we can assure you Mumsie will be right there pokin' her nosie into your bizness, Ags...runnin' right to the bombshelter and LOOKIN' UNDER THE BED...she's very very jelly!

Oh...sigh...she said to tell ya PL2was right...ya see evidently right before the hot spots started on Stanny, she undercoat raked the h#$@ outta his she scratched his delicate Dale skin and the rest is history....

So PL2 is gonna get her vet degree, huh??!!

Oh...she squeezed my tummy like 5473 times to see if I squeaked from the allegedly ingested squeaker. I didn't. Besides I had hidden the squeaker UNDER THE SOFA. You know...amid the cobwebs and dust...great spot till SHE decided to clean under there with the sweeper.

Love ya lots, Sweet Ags...

I hope the next time we go swimmin' you don't wear that Gentle Leader could soooo interfer with my rescue breathing....


Pee ess...does everybody wear those lobster hats? Mumsie might have to buy one at Macy's if she's going to visit.

Lorenza said...

OMD! What a day you had!
Sure it was excitingto meet Asta's mom and dad and Toffee and Riley too with their people!
I wish I could go there to meet you too!
Kisses and hugs

Unknown said...

I can't believe Asta's people tricked Asta and me into staying home with Mommy while they went traipsing all over New England, visiting OUR friends!

The next time, Asta and I are hopping the Aire-cela and doing the whole New England tour - Mango and Dexter, A & A, Toffee & Riley, Mitch & Maggie in CT, Hershey & Kaci—have we left anyone out?

What good are these people as chauffeurs if they leave the 4-pawed passengers at home???

Your pal,


Koobuss said...

Oh boy!! What a great time you had! It was so nice of Asta's Mommi and Daddi to visit you!!

Agatha, you should be very proud of your bomb shelter. It's very beautiful and people want to see it.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess I think that PL2 needs a taller camera. That should solve her photography problems.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Glad U meet Asta's parents. Aren't they wonderful, SOO nice!!That is probably why you showed them your bomb shelter.

Hopefuly they will bring Asta along next time!

I like to know, what's on or around your muzzel? It looks like your guys couldn't lick them to death.


Kess And Her Mama said...

What fun to have visitors. She's obviouly been reading your blog and knows all about your bomb shelter! Coolness!

Faya said...

Oh you are so lucky ! Even if USA is a big big big country you can meet other DWB member. Who will come in Switzerland to meet me ? You are so lucky....
Agatha you are so sweet to let Asta's Mom visit your Bomb Shelter.
I hope Archie feels better now.
Kisses, Faya

Poopsie aka Blue said...

What a wonderful surprise for you!
It's always lovely to meet friends, hopefully Asta will come next time too.

Love, pats & pets

Dexter said...

Your PL is fine with the camera, she just has terrier vision is all.

You are super lucky to actually meet Asta's mumsie! Did you share fashion tips with her? WOW! What a weekend.


Unknown said...

Wow.. thank u PL2 for capturing the surprise! I can't believe it too! What a great time and of course topping the day off with chowdah! I see Asta was not happy. Maybe next time.


Princess Patches said...

We have heard all about you meeting Asta's peoples and Asta is not too happy that she didn't get to go too! We told her that maybe it was just too cold! It looks like everyone had a really great day!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What a wonderful surprise.. It looks like you all had a great time..
Hopefully they will come back again real soon.

Big Sloppy Kisses

Joe Stains said...

omdog HOW EXCITING!!! I would have fainted too, but where was Asta?! I won't tell Mom where your bomb shelter is, the humans can't know too much.

Unknown said...

A & A
Wow I can't believe we were that close to you. Certainly I would love to meet up for a walk. I am only off lead in certain areas.. it's that running at people and tackling problem I have. But we went to a baseball field across the street and had fun off leash there. it was fenced in so no escape to leave the state.

I can't wait for spring.

Eric said...

Woa!! Hold UP!! I'm in a state of shock too and Mom's greeeeeeen.We are a bit blogging surprised about PL2 cutting everyone's head off!!!!Yikes. Do they have some strange laws that allow that in Boston??? Seems like she was only able to make a glancing blow at the top of Toffee's Mom's head. Xpect that's why she was wearing the Lobster Hat to hold her brains in. No wonder ARchie always faints and you Twinnie hide in your bomb shelter.

But boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!!!!. What a fab a dab adoo visit. Sounds like you all had the most glorious and special time (Mom is greeen ..but with envy this time.) Though I expect Asta's leggededs were a bit taken aback to have their heads removed as a greeting. Clever Asta's Mom must of had some really strong glue with her to put her head back on again SOOOOO perfectly. Can tell she's a real artiste can't you?

Lucky dogs....I'm so wagging for you that everybloggie had such a great time. Love and kissies. Eric xxxxxx

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Whoa, whoa!
I sat back and read your post without bliking my eyes.
Asta's Mom and Dad visiting you?
What a special event!
You two were so lucky, please tell me how to invite them to my little town.
I'm still in shock, boy oh boy!

Rudy said...

That's so awesome getting to mee Asta's people. I don't get to meet any bloggie doggie's people, but maybe we will somewhere.
Cutting people's heads off in pics isn't so bad. Mom prefers it that way in my blog, or even with her back to the camera!


Tee said...

Can we be friends?

Dewey Dewster here.....

Stanley said...


I can't believe they actually showed up at your house! Very diplomatic of you to ask Asta's mommi into your bomb shelter. I'd love to see a photo of her hunkering down with you in there.

Asta said her mommi thought you guys were sweet pups, and that it was evident which of you two was in charge (you, Agatha, of course!)!

Sounds like they would have stayed longer if they had had the time. They even suggested to my girl that she move to live close to you guys!

Goober love & smooches,

Toffee said...

What can I say but it WAS a great visit indeed!!

Thanks for the awesome card! We loved it!
