Just a little personal note, since he's shown up on this blog pretty frequently. I'm sad to say that my dog Thor passed away yesterday after a short but severe illness. The picture above is from just a couple of weeks ago, so you can see he was active right up until the end. He was a fantastic little guy, and I feel lucky to have had him in my life for the time I did. If you knew him and want to remember him, feel free to make a small donation to the ASPCA in his memory. I'm obviously very sad, and will miss him a lot, but I'm doing ok.
