Likes: She likes having all the attention and keeping the other animals in line.
Pet-Peeves: Another dog or cat trying to disobey.
Favorite Toy: Squeaky ball.
Favorite Food: ANY food. She LOVES food. She stands under me while I prepare their meals in hopes of food dropping to the floor. She finishes first, then scavenges around while the others finish theirs.
Favorite Walk: Through Cherryhurst.
Best Tricks: Getting sympathy. She doesn't chase a ball as fast as she used to when she was younger (as she has also put on some weight.) She takes her position as pack leader very seriously and watches all of the others like a hawk.
Arrival Story: Astrud wandered up to my landlord's house one day and hid under her car. She had a tag, but the people said they didn't want her anymore. She came to live with me when Anoushka was only six months old.
Bio: Astrud is the boss of the pack. She herds the other dogs and cats. She LOVES food and will happily eat trash found in the street. She also plays fetch obsessively. She is happiest when she is with the people, watching the other dogs. If another dog is out of line, she quickly steps in the rectify the situation. She has been known to stalk passer-by; and jump out to bark at them for passing her yard.
