Mum will be home in just 3 more days on Friday! And, best of all: look at all of the swell bones she dug up with her friends at the Philistine site of Tel es Safi. I'm not sure what a Philistine is, but it seems like they sure enjoyed their food! I just hope mum brings all of those bones home to compensate me for my pain and suffering of being away fwom her for 8 1/2 whole months. I'm soooo excited, I've just peed again!
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.
