Letters from Siberia

You may remember Misha Zelenchukov, the former Russian journalist now working as a security guard, though infrequently paid, and living outside Novokuznetsk in an old house with no running water. Here's the photo I received from him today, with a note explaining that his dog had "perished," but that now he has this new dog.

I notice he isn't a big fan of smiling... I feel bad for anyone who has had a dog "perish..."

But seriously... how can you hold a little puppy up like that and NOT smile?

reading about his life - no running water - reminds me again how good we have it in the US. I'm sure his dog is one of the few bright spots in such a difficult existence.
