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 […]

Asta

Hello everybody. My name is Asta, and I am a guide dog. My mom has taken up the A to Z challenge where you have to write each day on a different letter of the alphabet. Judging by my mom’s sluggardness of late, I have taken over the job. 🙂 She has been preoccupied with […]

Sentimental – Nah, Not Tonight

o here I sit in the sweltering, humid heat of Amanzimtoti, too hot to sleep, with a cooling breeze rushing through my security bars. While I do that, I have a chance to pay some blogging debt. I committed myself to writing at least one post a day, and the rest is laggish history.

The […]

Dream Job

I’ve often asked myself this question: If you could hand-pick your dream-job and your working circumstances, what would it be?

My dream job – can you guess? – would be in the music industry. Not in the front lines, but behind the scenes – better yet, behind the keyboard.

My title: Since I’m not in […]
