the weather's been baking recently in nicaragua, and it's brought forth an intriguing streak of ingenuity that has sparked a whole new direction for the legendary Agent McBryan.

You see, the Surf Camp/Trip business idea is played out down here. That was last year, man. Every Canadian who liked Blue Crush is starting the same business. F-ING BORING!
As a Cancer and a Taurus respectively, we both have a natural affection towards animals, specifically dogs. We both discovered this after a long night of drinking and decided we could make a difference here in Nicaragua.
At first it was a small operation, only one or two dogs a week. We would collect them off the street and bring them to a rehabilitation facility that we rented. It isn’t much, but we had room for 25 dogs and we collected food scraps from local restaurants to feed them.
We taught a few of the local kids how to care for the animals, word got around town and the program really started to take off. In fact, we’ve been so successful, that we’ve reintroduced almost 175 dogs as domestic pets to date. And we've now got jobs for a bunch of the local crew.
After some deliberation, we decided that it would be a good idea to distinguish our dogs from the other “street dogs”, but we were uncomfortable with the whole branding idea. That’s when the “bigote” idea presented itself.
Anyway, our vet suggested we use this as a more humane method to distinguish our dogs and we quickly agreed. We decided that we could extract a small bundle of hairs from the dogs tails (because that is where it is the longest and most fertile) and attach it just below the nose with two small stitches (because that is the most receptive point on the body).
Naturally, it looks like our dogs have mustaches and thus are easily distinguishable from other dogs in the area. From this natural evolution, “Perro Bigote” was born.
We have several ideas, including bilingual dog training classes, “Salva los Gatos” and “Leche del Toro” (We feel Bull Milk is an untapped market waiting to explode), but we haven’t settled on anything yet.
In the meantime, I’ve decided to grow my own mustache to show my continued support for rescued dogs and several people in town are doing the same. (Actually, I grew it more for the picture with the Mayor.) I know it sounds a little crazy, but let me tell you - It sure beats the hell out of one more surf camp.
Oh yeah, and if you can, please plug my new website so people can check out the surf in Nicaragua: www.nicaraguasurfreport.com. I’ve got a picture of Tsunami somewhere in the archives if you want to check out his mustache!
OK man, I’ll shout back at you soon.
and there you have it, my friends. solid proof that the bojon is alive and well out there! agent mcbyran, you're an inspiraton!
