Burgers in the Apple

As you all know, Asta's Mommi is having a big birthday bash tonight here in New York. Lacie, Scruffy and Baby Stan's Mumsie is one of the honored guests, so the terriers decided to sneak along and stay at my place. Then they're going to surprise everyone at the party tonight!

Friday night was a bit chilly, but pretty and clear, so Asta and I took the out-of-towners to the famous ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center.
We would have stayed there longer, but Scruffy decided to write his name on the ice and we got kicked out. Fortunately, I was able to talk him out of writing "For a good time, call Lacie at 1-800-FoxyLaky."

This morning, the Pittsburghers woke up and after a hearty breakfast, we headed out on the town for a day of shopping and sprucing up for the big party. (Asta couldn't join us as she was out catching salmon and moose to make some fancy dish for the party! How very Sarah Palin of her!)

Baby Stan and Scruffy hadn't the slightest idea of what to wear, so we stopped at a posh boutique for them to try on some duds.

Afterwards, I took Stanley to a classic Barbershop for a straight-razor shave and some beard grooming. He had a whole bullystick hidden in that beard, which he promptly wrapped in some bacon he had in his pocket ("for emergencies") and devoured it!

Scruffy indulged his untapped Metrosexualterrier self and had his very first manicure. "Short and square-dog shaped, please, with one coat of clear polish!" He had a very hard time waiting for his polish to dry before he could scratch behind his ear.

Lacie told me that she'd always wanted a sophisticated haircut from a posh New York salon. I knew just the place! Supermodel Naomi Campbulldog is a client here and if they can put up with her cellphone throwing, I knew they could please Lacie!

Doesn't she look completely different after her Japanese hair-straightening treatment and subtle low lights???
I told her it made her legs look longer, too. 

While they were getting all spruced up, I went in for my final fitting of my bespoke suit. Eric was right! English tailoring can make you look so much taller and slimmer. Apparently, David Beckham is really a roly-poly fellow whose only 5'4" tall! It's all in the cut of the suit!

Okay, I think we're almost ready for the party! You'll just have to check back later in the week to see us in all our finery! Have a great weekend (and an awesome party Asta's Mommi!)

My god Lacie looks transformed. Who would have thought a Japanese hair straightening treatment would also add inches to her height.
You all look simply marvellous by the way. Asta wont know you when you get back from your day out.

Have fun at the pawty.

Molly the Airedale said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Eric said...

Petey. Nice one. You sure taught those country bumpkins how to style. Lacie looks so unlike herself. Shame Scruffy didn't go that metro-sexualterrier step further with a colour or color) polish. And thank dog- it was only his ear he wanted to scratch. Yep,our Saville Row cuts the cloth. Suits you.

Have a fabbie time at the pawty. Wiry wags, Eric xx

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petey!
Everyone is looking great for the big surprise!
Let us know how it went ok?
Kisses and hugs

Amber-Mae said...

Woah! Her hair is sooo straight after rebonding! It doesn't look like her anymore!

Butt wiggles,
Solid Gold Dancer

Agatha and Archie said...

WOW!! Lacie looks fabulous!!!! Actually you all do!!! We can't wait to hear all about it!! Love and kisses A+A

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Petey...I didn't hear bout Scruffy wantin' to mar my pawfect Lakie image by writin' some frozen slime about me in the ice....thank Dog you were able to talk him out of it...I owe ya Petey...

Thank you ever ever soooo much for the fab day we had on the town...that posh salon WAS THE BEST! I had NO IDEA I could have such bootiful straight hair and long never endin' paws....and who woulda thunk Scruffy could look so amazin' with his nails square and "done"....Eric's right...if he'd tried to scratch his so called sanitary section before they dried....his foot coulda stuck to it!

Wasn't the pawty the best yet? The piano player was divine...thank you for the dance...(Lacie tosses her very long straight fur and looks up at Petey coquetishly furiously batting her eyes.....)

Mumsie is unconscious on the floor here...she said somethin' bout this post being even better than the Asta Marie fiasco, but I'm not quite sure what she means....

Frankly, I think she's a tad miffed at us...we, um, well got into her unpacked suitcase and found the BEST TOY EVER...she obviously bought it at FAO Schwartz just for us. It's this totally cool fur that has these little faces and feet on it. And we had ONE OF THE BEST GAMES OF TUGGIE EVER until she saw us pullin and tuggin' on it...she said something bout feelin' a migraine comin' on....

Well...Stan has to go to the vetties and we have to stay here and guard the housie...there's this hoooge deer outside standin' on her hindleggies eattin' a tree in our woods that's drivin' us nuttie...oh well....

It was lovely seeing you again Sweet Petey!!!!!

Love and kissies...

Sophie Brador said...

Ah Petey, I want to get my fur done with you guys too.
