G’day Mates, Mum and I are real excited cause her friend Mandy who is taking care of me while mum digs up old bones sent her some new photos of yours truly. I’m especially excited because in addition to the 4 cairns that belong to the Figgs, we had another dog staying with us for the last few days. This is my new mate, Bronson. He's a Maltese Terrier and he's really cute just like my Malteaser friends Bella, Scrappy, Snowball and Toby! We had a fun few days flirting and playing bitey face. Bronson had a bit of a haircut and he’s looking handsome - don't you think? Now he’s going home.
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.
