fridays with asa: he goes by the name of brodie.

friday greetings to you, my fellow comrades!
today i find myself in a particularly jovial disposition, and i am quite unable to restrain my giddiness.  what is this emotion that has flooded over me, you ask?  allow me to share with you what has recently transpired in my life.
as many of you have ascertained, i tend to be a sensible, serious, and introspective canine.  coupling these traits along with my more mature, old fashioned stature, i had reached the conclusion that i, asa, was not ideal "relationship material".  one could only imagine my surprise when approximately a fortnight ago, a certain gentledog approached my little brother booker with this message:

Oh, Mr. Bookerman... I uh was wondering if I... uh.. may court Asa? With your permission of course. And if she will have me that is...

shortly thereafter, booker approached me to convey the message.  my heart swelled with hope as a ship's sail that has harnessed the wind.  who was this magnanimous gentledog who considered it of utmost courtesy to first request permission from my little brother to pursue me? 
booker indicated that he had thoroughly examined my potential suitor and found him to be of upstanding, moral character.  furthermore, my little brother concluded that my admirer was of a more gregarious and playful nature, which he believed would aid me in coming out of my shell a bit.
i, asa, greatly respect the opinion of my little brother, and so i embraced the opportunity to get to know my admirer.  roughly one week ago, i responded to my suitor in the affirmative.  i am enchanted to share with you all that i am now the special lady of my handsome gentledog:

is he not ruggedly handsome & good looking?

he relishes in a relaxing slumber as do i.
he is a fellow food connoisseur.
he shares a vast knowledge of the latest scarf fashion.
he enjoys masticating on a bone as much as i do.
besides, i have a penchant for blondes!

Hello Asa!
Because you have discrimating tastes and because Brodie was such a gentleman to ask your brother for your paw in courtship I believe you found Mr. Right! You need to take it slow though because that's what good girls do but of course you know that rule of paw already. I think Brodie is the pawfect man fur you, my dear!

Hooray for Brody & Asa, you seems like a great couple. I have a secret lady I have my eye on, but I haven't worked up the nerve to ask if she's single or not!

Awww, that's so sweet that you have a new beau! And what a gentleman to ask your brother first. Chivalry is not dead, huh? BTW, you certainly have a way with words - we especially liked that "harnessed the wind" thing although we have no idea what it means. We're guessing you're a happy dog :)

Doris Sturm said...

That's great! Congratulations, Asa, on finding an appropriate suiter thanks to your little brother, the Bookerman. I have to say, he's a very smart boy, that Bookerman! He discovered the name of one of the butterflies on my blog. I have to say that your new suiter, Brodie, is indeed a very handsome and distinguished looking gentelman! Enjoy!

errr Girl to girl Asa, I gotta tell u this...Buddy boy was a little sad. He has always admired u so much and almost asked you out the other day. But he was so unsure...Asa is so mature n Sensible. Here I am always after fun, and frolicking around foolishly...she would never have me. Besides I am way younger, she would laugh at me, he'd say.
Now he thinks he should have asked.
anyways, he is Happy for her. Brodie is a fine chap.
