G'day Pals, I had really planned to reveal my sissy Pussy Galore II today, but we have some sewious pwoblems in Melbourne. Yestewday was the hottest day hewe in 150 yeaws! It was neawly 120 F/ 47 C and my sissy went into hiding, and I have been spending the week keeping cool in my pool. The heat is vewy sewious fow our state. The whole state of Victowia is pwactically buwning down, and the fiwes wewe vewy close to my pals Opy and Chawlie. I wish I could help them, but I can't leave my house because the pavements awe all melting. All of ouw cwops awe dying fwom the heat. Thank dog, pig eaws aren't a crop. Mum says its an infewno. I don know what that is, but I know it's hot. Please dad, give me some mowe cold water.
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.
