Asta Marie on Marriage and Husbands

After my Middle Name Meme posting, I got a few comments requesting more information on my marriages. It has been some time now since all this occurred, but I will let you get a glimpse of my life for the past few years.

I guess I misspoke earlier when I said that I had two husbands since I actually had three husbands. The first one was so forgettable, that I simply forgot about him.

Where shall I start?
When I was 2, my Mom decided that she wanted to have some grandchildren………lord knows that her hooman kids weren’t giving her any. And so we needed to find a suitable husband for me. That was a job as Mom did now show me….the vet butchered my tail when I was 3 days old and there was no getting it back. We found a prospective suitor in nearby Ohio and Mom took me down for the canoodling. Here is a photo of Buckshot, husband #1, that showed his best side. I want to tell you that when I went down there to meet him, he looked like a sheep about to be shorn. Mom never took a picture of what he looked like then.

We canoodled twice but I didn’t get any puppies….most likely because of all that hair…but that's only my theory……

By the time I was in season again, Buckshot had moved on and I was introduced to Willie. Here’s Willie…not a bad lookin fellow….nicely groomed…but I didn’t KNOW him. Who wants to doink someone that you just met? I tried to bite him, his Mom, his Dad, my Mom and anyone else that was around. However, he had his WAY with me twice and I had 3 puppies.

I won’t go into what all happened because it was pretty tragic but I lost 2 of my puppies, the 2 boys and only the girl was left...... my sweet Abby. Here’s Abby then ......

And here's Abby now.

My Mom understood that I was just not into casual sex and the next time she was ready for puppies, she brought Fred home for my big bruver Scott. Now look at that face, would ya? Wouldn’t you just swoon and melt after lookin into those eyes?
She didn’t have to coax me into canoodling with Fred and we had 4 puppies, all boys, on Halloween in 2006. I had problems with both of my deliveries and my Mom had the fix-it surgery when they delivered the 4 boys. Here I am after getting home from the vets. Do I look sick or what?

But my Mom is happy with Dewey (while I wish he would have found a new home). She says he is so much like me, it is scary. So while I did just love all of my babies, I wasn’t crazy about all of my husbands. And it is good that I don’t have to worry about taking care of any more kids, just my Mom. And my Mom is happy because she was afraid that she was going to lose me with all of the problems that I had.

So that’s the story of my three husbands and all of my kids.

Yikes !!!! I've Been Tagged........

Middle Name Meme

Eric Square Dog tagged me, Asta Marie, for the middle name meme. Now Eric sure doesn't look square to me...he is pretty round in all the right places, but then what do I know? I have only had 2 husbands and the only one I really liked was Fred. Someday, I'll tell you all about what being married is really like...then you won't make the same mistakes I did......

Here are the rules:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogge of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged)

So I am Asta Marie and I have a middle name MARIE that I use all the time.

M is for Mother as I have been and still am a Mother to Dewey Dewster and 4 other pups. Whew, that is a job I am not willing to repeat. Ever again...... another really long story......
A is for Artist as I am a lover of art. I try my hand at it every now and again. I especially love the art of getting muddy....why you look and smell delicious after laying in a disguisting, dirty, smelly mud puddle. And just to create the right effect, I put my whole face in there too and come up dripping wet. That is art at it's finest. Just don't try to wash my face when I am getting a dreaded bath. Yuck !!!!
R is for Ratter.....well my Mom always calls everything a mouse but I'll get'em if I find 'em anywhere near my house. I have caught some little mice, snakes, moles and I helped Mom catch a big rat that looked surprisingly like a groundhog once. We just barked him outta the neighborhood. Not sorry when he was siree.........
I is for Intelligent and my Mom tells me that I am the smartest dog ever. How smart am I? Well, when Mom calls in a take-out order to the Chinese Restaurant, they always say "You come 10 minutes " and Mom always repeats that to my Dad. She said' "You come 10 minutes." That's my cue, as they say.......I know that means I get to go in the car to help Dad get the stuff home safely ( ya know, there are Chinese food burglars lurking out there all the time....gotta be on your toes at all times). I am right there by the door waiting for him to take me. There are lots of other things too...ask my Mom to tell you sometime.
E is for Energy and I am full of it. In fact, I would play ball for 8 hours straight if Dewey would let me. Since he learned how to play ball, I never get to play anymore except when we can get him out of the way. That, by the way, is one of the drawbacks of being a Mother...gettin a son like Dewey and then having to live with him. Anyone want a ball-playing Wire Fox Terrier named Dewey? He's FREE.....

A Mother is the special one that cuddles you at night .

An Artist is a person who fills your life with light.

A Ratter takes intruders and kicks them out the door.

Intelligent is what I am and I'm lookin 'round for more.

Energy is a state of mind and I find mine each day.

And here's the list of who I tag so I can go and play.

Huck the terrier

Robbie the Border Terrier

Willow the black Dale

Dixie The Poodle

Fenway the Border Collie

Good luck guys, can't wait to hear all about everyone..........
