Lookie who showed up at our house last night!! It's Asta...and she came from NYC bundled up in her warm coat and doggles bearing a large pot of soup that surprisingly didn't spill at all!!!!! She is the best nursie. She fluffled Mumsie's pillows and spooned the hot nourishing broth down her horrible sore throat. She seemed to perk right up. Then Asta made one of her special Sore Throat and Terrible Cough Smoothie in the blender. It had all sorts of special fruit juices and that special 150 Pwoof Wum that she brought with her. Mumsie slept better last night than she has in a week. She and I spent the night under Big Sissie's bed....and we made a fort and had a huge marshmellow fight with Babystan and Scruff...!!! Thanks to Asta for all of her help!!!
I have to tell you....I think I am living with two WIMPS....Pansies....I don't know what to call my terrier bros.....
Mumsie took all three of us for a walkie last night before Asta came. It wasn't so cold and she figured she couldn't get any sicker outta the house than in it....we had JUST finished pulling her flat on her derriere...(hey, don't blame us...she slipped on the ice on the sidewalk!).....when Babystan freaked out. Like went BALLISTIC. He barked, he growled...he snarled....Of course, Scruffy joined right in the fracas. Being a sensible Lakie, I decided to reserve judgement. Mumsie said the hair was standin' up on the back of her neck. Now that we have Babystan, she figures he's a deterrent to crime....who would want to tackle with that big bad boy???? She scoped the scene out and was flabbergasted to see these two shady characters.
Now, granted today they are a bit melted. But...I mean this dude had a carot for a nose. It was a Snow Bunny...with big frozen stuck up ears.
And beside the Snow Bunny was this fierce creature...yep...a Snow Dog. He's also melted now. Mumsie dragged Babystan over...he had his brakes on....and told Scruffy and him to give them a big sniff. The expression on Stan's face made me laugh my Lakie a** off!!! It was like he went..."well...so there...okay...so I may have made an error." My brother Scruffy was not one to lose face. He jumped on top of the Snow Dog and um....well (blush) made suggestive motions with his backend. Snow Dog was not impressed. Scruffy said she/he was frigid. So the Airedale is the King of the Terriers....and the Wire Fox Terrier is described as fearless and intelligent????? HA HA HA!!!!! Let me tell you these two are not quite up to breed standard if ya know what I mean! It was PATHETIC!
I constantly have to supervise these two. For very little pay, I may add. Grrrrrrr.
On a brighter note.....lookie what showed up on our doorstep today. A HUGE box from Gooberstan and Stella. The boxie itself is as big as Kansas. I can't wait to open it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tune in to our next post for pressie pix from the Republic of Gooberstan!!!!!!!!!
Sensible queenly barks,
