No. It is NOT wrong to give lots of hugs & smoochies!!!!
I was over at
Reading about her wonderful weekend long celebration for her daddy ~ it was his birthday! Asta took her parents over to Central Park. She even took them on the subway!  While they were there, she decided that she would get her
Canine Good Citizen Certificate.
This is one gal I know that has such a beautiful and
Asta was (once again, thinking of other's) already planning how many ways she could help other's by earning this. It would allow her to do lot's of wonderful things. She had planned on using it to help hooman's feel better, especially the ill and the elderly! She had one particular place in mind that she would love to be able to assist at. People that would be so grateful for her oodles of love. What a pawsome idea! I was so excited as I kept reading her blog. I watched the pawsome video of ASTA taking all the test!  What a wonderful gal!  She did a fantastic job! I was so proud of her and was looking forward to seeing the certificate. Then there were the horrible words that saddened me. It broke her heart. Not because she wanted to stick a feather in her hat. Without this certificate she could not help other's. But there it was. She didn't pass.  I stood up and said WHAT?!?!?!? That couldn't be. She did an excellent job! I thought that maybe she was so excited that perhaps it was a typo error or something.  My gosh!  Just watching the video was so exciting! Lala and I were cheering her on!  But no. As disappointing as it was, Asta failed the test. WHY you ask? Because ONE HOOMAN said that kissing is not acceptable!!!! WHAT?????? Smoochies are wrong?! I had my mom come read the blog and asked her if smoochies were wrong, then I have been doing a naughty thing.  My mom said no! Smoochies are not wrong. Whew! Because  I know that's what we pooches do!!!!!  Not only do we love to smooch.
We never ask for much, if anything at all.  We are always the first one's there when you need a hug. We know when to make you laugh (and we laugh too when we make you upset!).  BOL! (You know what I'm saying). I could not believe it!  Why on this earth would they fail her for SMOOCHING???
No Asta.... it is not wrong for smooching and for one iota of a minute should you ever think that it is. Mommy is RIGHT! That hooman was wrong.

 I decided that ASTA should still recieve some type of an award for her unselfish great deed. I presented her (just keep in mind that I am not too puter savy with making things just yet) with a Good Citizen Award. I know I am not the only one that thinks this of Ms. Asta. WE in her HONOR shall ALL post a copy of this award on our blogs to let her know how very proud we are of her.
 If you like to pawticipate, please copy the award.
If you don't know Asta please stop by her blog and say hello!!!

ASTA ~ WE salute you for being the wonderful Lady that you are.  
 in our book!
With much love, hugs & smoochies! XOXOXO
