Happy Halloween from Henrik Ibsen and Me

October 31, 2013

Most of you know my dog from his occasional appearances on this blog. You may know him as the neighborhood rat catcher, as a tireless explorer of urban nature, as the unwitting subject of my research, and as a supremely patient model.

A sign at St. John the Divine: “HOLD CLOSE THY LOVED. Please keep dogs on a leash.”

Some of you may even remember the first time he impersonated the great Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen.

But what you don’t know – I myself only found out last week, when I took the photo below – is that for his own mysterious reasons (ah, who can fathom the mind of such a dog?), Strider, aka Esau, has been secretly perfecting his Ibsen impression.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
