A brush with DWB celebrity

All week my mom has been a "flutter" with excitement about meeting a certain DWB celebrity on Friday.  I seriously had no clue what she was talking about since we have already had splendid encounters with Agatha & Archie, Momo & Pinot, Ms. Sophie Brador, and the Pawlimpic CEO - Lenny.  What on earth could she be rambling on about?  

After work on Friday night we made the trek to Rhode Island - are we going to see a Rhode-E-shun ridgeback? No.  Riley tried to figure it out by reading the sign 
but he realized that he cannot read.  Next he tried to read some pee-mail on a fire hydrant.  
No luck. 

Finally we arrived at our destination - and who were the DWB celebrities you may ask??  They were none other than Asta's mommi & daddi!!!
(I think that Asta's mommi looks a lot like the lady in the painting behind them!)
Can you believe it!!! I got to meet Asta's mommi & daddi!!  Look at me!
Okay, I was a little shy and aloof at first because I was eyeing the hors d'oeuvres in the distance. I did warm up eventually - but truth be told I was very overwhelmed by meeting such a celebrity!
...oh yes...and look at Riley...he always has to get in on the action...
Asta's pawrents were such lovely people!  I am so happy that I had the opportunity to meet them.  I couldn't help thinking that it was the pawfect meeting...except for one impawtent missing element...

Maybe its just as well you didn't meet Asta herself, you might have passed out from being so close to such a famous DWB!
