Asta leads a charmed life with Mr and Mrs Charles. On of the family in every way. Myrna Loy and William Powel play the happy couple dedicated to crime solving. Asta is pretty good at sniffing out the crims too.
At the end of the day Asta is fully satisfied with his lot. Unlike dogs in Australia he is allowed on long sea voyages, luxury trains with sleepover and fine dining choices as well as sophisticated hotels. He is indeed a dapper dog.
Wanna be just like Asta
If he flies first class over the rainbow
Why then oh why can’t I?
