Sowy it took me so long to post these photos of my big homecoming after my mum being in Israel for 8 LONG months. Mum has been weally tiwered fwom her twip and digging and she had to go back to work today. She has to give a lecture on Tuesday. I don't know what that is, but it doesn't sound as much fun as a pig ear. Mum is in the middle as Grant and Mandy Figg pose wif us. They are weally gweat people for taking good cawe of me for 8 months. The first thing I did when they put me down is pee! I was sooo excited, but mum just thinks I was marking my spot. After that, I played wif my favowite rope toy, I showed mum I still wemembered my twicks like laying down, I had some dinner, and then I layed down and took a west while mum and dad went acwoss the stweet to the pub to celebwate mum's and my homecoming. I'll have some pictures of our fun weekend soon!
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.
