ex machina

how much can one malamute miss his best buddy in the world? and how mean can one neighbor be? well, i now know. the following is a transcript from an anonymous neighbor who left a note on our door today:

"You have such a beautiful dog & it's a pity to hear him cry + scream all day. If you don't love your dog you should not have him. someone might report you to animal abuse. It hurts to hear that dog cry so often."

needless to say, mauja doesn't seem to be dealing so well with the loss of harper.

i can understand a neighbor being irritated by a distraught malamute when they don't understand the extenuating circumstances, but it seems like if you're going to write a note like that you should at least leave your name.

mauja has been so sad lately. and if you know malamutes you know there's nothing more pathetic than a morose malamute. they don't bark. they howl like a very lonesome wolf. loudly. and very, very sadly.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
