2015 National Amateur Retriever Championship

It was a spectacular finish to the week long Amateur Retriever Championship trial in Ronan, Montana, with Alanson Brown III and AFC World Famous Emasculator-SheMale, "Nora", a female labrador owned, handled and mostly trained by Lanse. Nora stepped on all 4 marks. Literally. They were the last team to run today - what a way to end the trial.

Tasmanian Tiger

The tasmanian tiger is a marsupial. It became extinct in 1936.
Well, maybe it didn't - you'd say that if you've seen one. Have you?

Burning Man

Every year since 1986 at the end of August there is an art and music festival that happens in the desert in northern Nevada and lasts about a week. It's hard to describe the surreal experience, you have to be there. Click the video link below image (Lake Of Dreams) for a taste of it. Photo credit to Trey Ratcliff for the embracing men in the image here created for the 2014 festival - and yes they were burned.
