The Wild Native Prairie Weiner Dogs of Eastern Colorado!

Prairie Weiner Dogs!
Uh-oh! One of the Prairie Weiner Dogs has spotted me! What do I do?
Off it goes to attack an SUV!
Oh no! Now they're going to attack that poor man!
They operate in pairs, you know...
The man hides in the grass, hoping not to be seen by the vicious Prairie Weiner Dogs!
Ha! His trick worked!

 

The Aluminum Indians of Nebraska!

The Aluminum Indians of Nebraska are a small tribe, constructing their tepees out of metallic materials and concrete!
Amazingly, these tepees only occur near present day parking lots. How strange!
