G'day Pals Happy 4th of July. Being a true blue Aussie girl, I don't get these things, but mum is a yank (we call all Americans yanks), she sawys it's weal important. That's when she & all her mates got freed fwom the Bwitish. They just sent all of us to a big pwison.
Mum hasn't been helping me blog much cause she's been packing to finally come home. She's going to dig up old bones on Sunday for 10 days at a Philistine place, then she's coming home in just 16 days! She leaves Israel on July 18 and reaches Aussie land on July 20 - I'm sooo excited, I could just pee! I hope she at least brings me some of her dusty old bones. Mum and her mates are digging in the photo.
Meanwhile, my best pal, Judah the cairn, hurt his foot. Crikey! you should have seen how big and swollen it was. My poor little mate was very upset. The vet thinks that he's either been bitten by a bug, had an allergy, or sprained his foot - maybe playing too much wif me! And, then because it was sore he licked it so much that it became infected. Poor Judah has been on 2 weeks of antibiotics and some anti-inflammatories and he is good as new. Mandy Figg - who takes care of me till mum gets home noticed I was a bit put out because Judah wouldn't play chasies with me around the house. I love chasies almost as much as playing nursie wif Jackson! I kept going up to him and sniffing his foot and then giving him a dirty look - cause I only give nursie cuddles to Jackson and I wanted to Judah to play. Everyone thought it was vewy funny. You can see Judah in the picture wif me.
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.
