I've been tagged by Asta up over and the new game of tag involves posting a photo of myself in a silly situation. The problem is that I'm in Melbourne and mum is in Israel and this is the only photo she has of me that is unusual. I am sitting on Billy's shoulders and he his carrying me around. Mum carries me this way too! Billy is Mandy's son and Ellen's brother. Two years ago, when the Figgs were having drinkies with mum and dad, we all got locked out on the patio and Billy climbed into the house through my doggy door and let everyone in. Now that would have made a funny photo! Since there are two photos here you have to guess which one is of me and Billy and which one is the Moscophoros from 460 BCE Athens. I'm tagging Billy, Tadpole, and Girl Girl cause they're 3 of my funnest pals. xxx Asta
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.
