Why I stay in the Explorers Club.

Hilarious true gun YouTube (HT Massad Ayoob):

Ugliest taxidermy I have ever seen.

A laika hunting in the US, looking like a Gorbatov painting. (Thanks to Alex Schubert):

I don't know if they're my heroes, but I've met them*. Gentlemen, the both.



* You know you've got it made when random people on the internet trip over themselves to claim they've met you.

I got the link after running into Massad Ayoob-- definitely another gent-- in Ron Peterson's (ditto, so to speak) last weekend. World gets weirder & smaller...

Awright! Vladimir got another Laika pup!?! My Tazis probably chased this same dinosaur! Hey, I'd like-a to see MORE Laika stuff on this blog(just a suggestion....) And why doesn't Vladimir respond on this site more? If you are reading this Mister Beregevoy, I KNOW I owe you badly an update on the Tazi pups(plus subscription fees for the "Pads" newsletter, which I love), and I hope to get around to that soon!....And I don't know about how to pronounce some of the names mentioned on this video, but I personally JUST LOVE to say "MAHKMOOD AMADINNIJAD"!!!!!....L.B.

A) Not sure Vladimir quite "gets" Blogs as continuing entities.

B) Will get a box and send it.

C) Mas Ayoob is from NEW HAMPSHIRE! His mother, my father, my mother, and I were all born in one Boston neighborhood...

Oh, waitaminit, you actually mean the guy my friend John calls "L'il Squinty", not the handsome gent from the frozen north (;-)

Regarding the taxidermy, I believe Paul Revere made the lion's dentures.

Having spent some time with a West Siberian laika pup, I'm just amazed by them. They have a really amazing intelligence, and they are naturals in the woods. The only thing is that a dog that looks like that around here will automatically be assume to be a coyote, and it will be vulnerable to hunters wanting to "protect" the deer herd.
