The weekend started out on kind of a bad paw. Mum decided that I've rolled in so much possum poo the last 2 weeks that I needed a bath. She always takes me into the shower. It would be fun if not for all of that icky soap!
We had our usual 2 hour walk at the dog park. I will show photos of the dog park another time. It was the warmest day here in several months - about 68 F (20 C), so mum and dad decided to go to mum's favowite outdoor pizza place in Carlton and I got to come along! Mum always eats this weally gawlicky pizza, so I didn't get too many tweats, but it was a good 2 miles of walking after our 4 mile walk at the pawk. At the end of my day, dad gave me a tummy rub and he got a big kiss in return. We all had fun even though the pathetic Carlton Blues lost by 82 points! Australian rules football is played on a round field wif 3 sets of goal posts at each end: you get 6 points for getting the ball thwough the middle and 1 point for getting it twough the end posts. The same team pways offence and defence, and they can move the ball by running wif it, vollying it, or kicking it, so there is lots of scowing, but losing by 82 points is too much! Mum will take me on another long walk tomowow. 2 hours after we got home it started raining.
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.
