Yesterday we brought you an exclusive interview with Jill Zarin and her dog, Ginger. Today we’ve got photos of Aston and an interview with Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
CDW: Please refresh us about Aston. What breed is he again and how old is he now?
LuAnn: Aston is a West Highland Terrior and he’s almost 1 yr. now.
CDW: We know your son, Noel, really wanted a dog from watching the show. How’s the training going and are they bonding quite well?
LuAnn: Aston is totally clean and we love him. He’s a quick learner. We have a fabulous dog walker who also walks Bethenny‘s dog, Cookie. We laugh because we call them Cookie/Monster. Aston’s nickname was Monster when he was teething.
CDW: How would you describe Aston? As a puppy I imagine he’s quite playful and sleeps a lot still at this point but what personality traits do you see in him so far?
LuAnn: Aston is a real charactor, he loves to dig up my tiny garden in the city and loves to protect his home in the Hamptons. He’s very playful and loves rubber balls the best.
CDW: Has your daughter, Victoria, come around to the name yet? What was her choice if she could have named him?
LuAnn: My daughter loves his name now. She wanted to call him Opi.
CDW: We saw from the show that you travel quite a bit with your husband and we know you travel to the Hamptons every summer, will Aston be traveling with you?
LuAnn: Aston comes to the Hamptons of course and we will take him to Europe as well. He’s part of the family!
Wow, Europe! Aston’s passport will be stamped-up like crazy before you know it!
