And your Cute Young Bitches, if you don’t mind.   As  a matter of fact, I prefer CYB to the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free.   The Statue of Liberty moi is not.

Well, hello, little Hottie.   Where have you been hiding all my life?

Dear Red,

     My name is Asta but it used to be Bella before I was rescued and moved to Columbia and I’m trying to get used to my new name and new life with a Peep who already has another dog like me but he’s so old he has Dogzeimer’s  and every other kind of zeimer.   He’s no fun at all.   Trust me.

     I’ve been searching to try to meet some local singles, but I haven’t seen anyone as handsome as you are in your pictures.   Also, you seem to have the zip and pizzazz and Charisma I’m looking for!   I know you go to Quinine Hill Park sometimes and I’ve been there, too, so I hope you won’t think I’m too forward if I ask you to meet me there so we could maybe sniff around together?   Please come alone – I’m not interested in packs.

     Hoping to hear from you soon,


And just like that, Life brings a surprise, one of those curve balls out of the blue.

Dear Asta,

     I’m not sure why you’re sitting in a flower pot, but I have to say I think you’re one more sexy bitch.   If you were any Hotter, the Fire Department would be in your new back yard!   Oh, yeah, The Red Man will meet you anywhere, and the Park is one of my favorite places in Columbia.   Frankly, I prefer spaces without fences, but living downtown limits our outdoor opportunities.   We take what we can get, right?

     You are obviously a very perceptive young pup with tons of taste for the Real Deal and Baby, I’ve got what it takes to give new meaning to the term Welcome Wagon – Big Wheels Keep On Rollin’!!

     My Peeps will call your Peeps!

            The Red Man

Hot damn!   I better turn off Olivia and Law and Order and get myself upstairs for a workout with my exercise equipment – this young thing might give me a run for my money!!  

Hmmm…now what did I do with those dumb bells?   Oh, there they are –  asleep on the bed.   Heh, heh.   My little joke for the night.

Well, Sports Fans, I hope you all get a great surprise out of the blue tomorrow!!   Adios, Amigos!!
