We called him Misha or mostly the Mighty Mishaman. Misha's shenanigan's supplied stories for a magazine called the Siberian Quarterly for over 10 years, they were that many. How do I pick one?
From the moment Misha joined us, he demonstrated his joie de vivre. He is named after the ballet dancer Barishnikov. He loved to spring over things. He would leap up in the air from a standstill just to bounce around me. I think he was happiest when he was airborne.
