Some of you have asked me about my new pal Bronson. He belonged to a friend of a friend of Mandy, from Mandy’s work. Mandy and her family are whom I’m living with till mum comes home. When Bronson’s mum moved to a new house she couldn't have a dog with her and she looked and looked for a new home for him. Bronson almost became an orphan, but then Mandy found a new home for him with Trevor who works with Grant. Grant is Mandy’s husband and the hooman dad of my 4 cairn mates: Zarra, Judah, Violet and Jasmine. Here Grant is offering us a treat, but I'm getting it cause I'm a fasty. He He. So anyway, Trevor gave Bronson a new home and now he has a big new family of hoomans to play with: Trevor and Jo and their kids Stacey, and twins Tara and Samantha. I hope I will get to see Bronson again in the future, but I don’t know because his new family is keeping him busy!
I was born in Brisbane on Nov. 23, 2004 to a litter of two at Quinvale Kennels, and I was flown to my home in Melbourne in late January 2005. There aren't many WFT's in Australia and my humans, Louise & Brian, were on a waiting list for about 9 months to get me. Brian says that when you wait 9 months for a baby, it's usually less furry. Being cute let's me get away with a lot and being a wirehaired fox terrier means I always try. Sometimes I have trouble understanding my humans' funny American accents, but watching a lot of American TV shows with Louise helps. Louise is an archaeologist and that means she travels a lot, so I sometimes have to stay with my friends, the Figgs. When she's here, it's great because we go for long walks or runs every day! There are not many of us WFT's in Australia and I'm always confused with airedale's and schnauzer's. Most people also get my name wrong, calling me Esther, Astro, or Astra. Those few who have seen the Thin Man, however, know it's ASTA.
