Malcolm in August 2011

Malcolm was born the 3rd of January, 2003 and passed away during the night the 15th of January 2013 at an age of 10 years.

The young Malcolm was the favourite of his mother Saara. Malcolm's brother Otto and sister Millie were not allowed to enter the sofa of Saara, but Malcolm was the accepted and beloved visitor to approach his strong-minded mother. Saara handed over her leadership to Malcolm.

Malcolm was playful during his whole life. If there was nobody to play with Malcolm, Malcolm invented ways to fool around by himself. Malcolm was now and then doing the slow motion ghost-walking by the fireplace. It was like mental training to relax.

Malcolm had a good health condition until the last hours of his life. The hemangiosarcoma tumour had covered the surroundings of his spleen and the operation couldn't safe his life. We miss a lot the intelligent, brave and gentle leader of our salukis, the eager, curious and envious Malcolm.
