#AToZChallenge – Fitness

Meet the chick that hates the gym. That’s me. In my never-ending battle with my bulges (definitely plural), exercise feels worse than diet.

But not anymore. Well, I still hate the gym, but I’ve found some ways to enjoy exercise.

I used to do Pilates, and it made me feel really good at myself, especially […]

Excitement

Excitement is what I feel more and more each day. That’s because yours truly is going on a holiday.

What makes it even more exciting is that it is to a place I’ve never been before.

The other thing I’m looking forward to about my holiday is the friends I’ll meet, and the music that […]

#AToZChallenge – Colours

As a blind person who has been that way since birth, I’ve often been asked how I perceive colours since I’ve never seen them before.

I have no idea what colours look like, but I’ve built my own perceptions based on other people’s descriptions.

For instance, I picture blue as cold and I associate it […]

Goodness #AtoZChallenge

Hello, it’s Asta again, and goodness, how I struggled to find a nice word with a g. But I guess goodness will do.

I love praise. I think it’s a necessary thing in every dog’s life. You praise me and I know I’m doing the right thing. Because all I want to do is please […]

Food #AtoZChallenge

No, that’s wrong. Foooooood!

Sorry, where’s my manners? Hello, it’s Hungry Asta.

I’m a labrador, and by nature I love food. In my best dog-dreams I eat and eat and never stop.

My food intake is limited, so that I can look slim and trim. Hmph, I think my mom should limit her intake a […]

Eggnorance #AtoZChallenge

Hi Again. It’s Asta.

Mom’s definition of eggnorance: Ignorant people who cannot learn.

For instance: Some people call me a blind dog. Um, no, I’m not blind, but my mom is. When she tries to help the lady right, the lady told her: “I know what they are, I’ve read a lot about them. How […]

Destiny #AtoZChallenge

Hello, it’s Asta again.

Firstly, let’s get something out of the way. Sorry I couldn’t post for a while. My mom had a humanish calamity. Her tail was drooping and her head was hanging. Today her tail wags weakly, but at least her head is up. Now I get a chance to catch up at […]

Cuddles

Hello, it’s Astalicious here. My mommy’s close friend sometimes calls me that. 😛 Ah no, look what I’ve gone and done: created extra work for myself. I forgot that Sunday is my day of rest, and I’m not supposed to write on that day. C day is today, and I’m so mad at myself for […]

Curiosity

Hello, it’s Princess Asta from the land of Dogville again.

Apparently you humans have a saying: “Curiosity killed the cat.” I could tell you how much I loathe cats, but curiosity is more my thing.

See, the world is full of interesting things, and I don’t want to miss a thing. I am just such […]

Baby Sister

Hello, it’s me again – Asta, in case you’ve forgotten. Humans can be so forgetful at times. Well, my mom is a master at forgetfulness.

Today I want to tell you about my new baby sister. She’s not my biological baby sister, although I have met some of my other biological siblings. Oh, yes, I […]
