Tongue out Thursday

Joining Brian's Thankful Thursday

Wordless Wednesday

I'm going to take a little snooze. 

Dog Day Afternoon.

My Dad keeps telling mom she needs to finish unpacking the
                         boxes in the garage. I don't think there is anything but Christmas
                         decorations and crystal wine glasses out there. Oh and maybe 87
                             boxes of shoes and purses!  Just look for yourself.

I am sure glad none of it is my stuffy's 

Maybe all the things will melt in the garage.

I am going to hide under the table, just in-case mom needs me.

I got lost Mail.

Way back in May before we moved I won a Dakota's Den Contest.

                            I won a free bag of Rachel Ray's Nutrish.
           Then we moved the first week of June. Mommy put a change of address
           for her and dad, but forgot me. She didn't really think I would get mail.
           Wrong, I was a winner and my birthday was coming,  I would get mail.

          A few  weeks went by.  Looking for my lost mail.

          My Nutrish  arrived like this.                                                                      

     Mommy picked up a bag of Peak Open Range.

Snow in July

Yesterday Mommy had a Birthday, she is very old like 87 light years.

                       My dad baked bought her a special cake from our oven   the store.

Friends I don't know who  "Honey" is  my dad must know her.  My mom does not taste like honey when I lick her toes. 

All I know is I did not get to have cake, not even a bite or a lick or sniff. I decided it was my duty because it's been so hot  to make it snow in my backyard! My mom's been complaining about it. I deaded a stuffy as a special gift to her.

 Aunt Cathy came over to see  me mom.
Aunt Cathy likes me!!!!

She even brought me Mommy a Lobster pillow.

So I said to myself. "Let them eat cake" XO Astro The Wild Child 

 Aunt Cathy's friend Chris has an etsy shop. you can visit her shop here

Mom will be putting Mr Lobster  where I can't touch him. 🦀🦀🦀🦀 We are not being compensated for the link to Chris's shop.

Snacks, Begging, Chicken

Dad, I really like boiled chicken hearts, can I have some too?

Silent Sunday

Flower Friday

We are still recovering from the computer crash.
Please forgive us if we can't add the hop to our post
we tried and had problems.


I didn't do it.  I wasn't even in the room!!!
Mom's computer crashed, there was no loud noise.
All her pictures and documents are gone poof, all 401 of them.
They were not stored in the clouds, or backed up.

 My dad's friend came and restored it back to factory settings.
Mom is spending time reinstalling all her apps and printer.

She could't even get to the sign on page................
So if you don't see me I am here reading and napping.
Aunt Cathy is coming over today maybe she will take
my picture. A note of caution from mommy.
If you have a fitbit be very careful it might take over
your computer and eat all your stuff that thing is hungry.
She was trying to charge it when the computer crashed.

Mom took this photo today,
I asked my dad what did you do in Germany beside drink beer? lol

Silly. Sunday Sleeping

Half of me is in my bed.
Half of me is under the table.
Mom said that can't be  comfortable.

Helping Mom

Yesterday was HOT, today is going to be HOT.
           Our part of Washington is usually pretty cool.
           Summers get hot when your not use to heat
           it can be unbearable for some of us.              
          Yesterday I helped mom water her flowers.                                                                                                  

Wordless Wednesday


We I mean my mom keeps finding stuff in the garage, it's like
a time machine went off out there. First, she found some old milk bottles, then an old trunk it belonged to her dad when he was a Marine back in the 1940's. Then she found the bears.
She washed the old time milk bottles and put them up in a cupboard.

         As the day went on she got a big idea to make a bear hibernation toy box.
  All the bears are safe from my destruction jaws. I am told they are no no's
and I can not touch just look. I'm going to have to restrain myself they look so good.

                              Do you want to see them?

     All the No no bad dogs are on the lid looking inside watching.

   If you look close in the above photo, you can see one is different than all the others.
    Do you see it? Need a hint? Our friend Shyla knows where to spot them.

             Did you find him?
          Mommy has more bears and other animals in the house...........
          Do you live with an…

Gotcha Day

Today is my first  Gotcha Day.
   July 1st 2016  - July 1st 2017

 I was a rescue from a high kill shelter in Texas.
Mom and Dad rescued me at PAWS in Lynnwood Washington.

Here I am after being adopted outta that jail.

 We had to stop and get me food and a bed.                  

    Me and my dad.                                                                          

 I was a little scared, but I knew I found my forever home.

Working Wednesday

I had to help my ma do yard work today.
       We never had to mow before where we lived.
       Dad bought a lawnmower for my mom.
        "Happy Early Birthday Honey" haahahahah
       My dad is a jokester, he knows mom will just smile and roll       her eyes.

There is a lot of weeds right now so she
mowed them down.  

     I got a new nickname today too.  Supervisor of Maintainance.  

 Mom said this new house stuff is hard work.
She even pulled a bucket of weeds from around the little
tree in front, Tomorrow she is going to plant flowers
if she can get out of bed :)

Medium Rare

Mom, I smell steak I hope you know how I like mine cooked.

Get the Broom

Mommy, get the broom dad's making a big sawdust mess.
                              What goes on in the wood shop stays in the wood shop.

Wordless Wednesday

My favorite pillow.
                                                Mom dad is snoring and I can't nap
                                                with all the noise.

It's My Birthday

It's my 5th Birthday and I'll sleep on the sofa if I want to.

           At 3:00 a.m. mom got up to make coffee and wake dad up.
          He always lets me outside to do my business, but this morning
          no one could find me. I wasn't in my bed or in the family room           recliner chair or in the office.                                       Mommy said,  "Astro where are you"?
               Then she turned the lights on............................................

I didn't get in trouble this time. Mommy said it's your Birthday Astro.

I got a pawsome card from my bff Madi and Mom Down home in NC.

Thank you, Madi, I love my card. XO Astro 


Happy Father's Day to my daddy. I love you so much! Thank you for rescuing me from the shelter.
Happy Father's Day to all the dad's. 



           Yesterday I gave you a glimpse of me in the back yard.
         I was banished out there while the cable man was here.

          Today I want to share with you the office where mommy will
          help me write my blog and make lots of comments to my friends.

This guy came and drilled holes in the walls.
We got the TV's and the internets all set up. Mom's desk is on the left and Dad's is on the right. Dad needs a chair and we will find one soon. Mom found the printer table on craigslist. Only 15 green papers of my treat money. Score one for Mommy. Dad hung up the drapes as if we live in a flood zone. Mommy said it's ok because when vaccula comes out the  the closet she doesn't want the drapes to be sucked away. There is a TV in here too but the wires look like Medusa's  twin sister paid us a visit.  We'll show ya when dad hides them.

Just to prove I am still living up to my nickname.

The animal rights organization have offered their condolences to the actor's family after it was confirmed the 'Man with the Golden Gun' star had passed away at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer.Mimi Bekhechi, Director of International Programmes PETA, said in a statement: "Animals have lost a dear friend with the passing of Sir Roger Moore. The long-time PETA supporter may have been best known for his suave portrayal of James Bond, but we believe some of his greatest achievements were his efforts on behalf of animals - including fronting a campaign pushing British department store Selfridges to stop stocking foie gras (it did!), boldly calling for the Queen's Guard's bearskin hats to be replaced with synthetic materials, and offering to pop a champagne cork with Theresa May if she brought forward a long-awaited ban on wild-animal circuses. Sir Roger was always an inspiration to work with. He called out animal abuse with wit and charm, and PETA w…
