Mark LeBlanc and Ace the dogMark LeBlanc and Ace are playing for Best Friends Animal Society. Mark is a 31-year-old mechanical engineer and professional photographer with a furry best friend named Ace, who is a 10-year-old border collie. Mark specifically wanted a breed that could match his own physical abilities and intensity, and Ace was exactly that for him. They love to push themselves to the limit in the mountains. Living in Salt Lake City, Utah, they are always active outdoors doing things like rock climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking and trail running. At six months old, Ace was catching frisbees 30 yards away, and at 10 years old, a 10-mile trail run is simply a warmup. Together, Mark and Ace have an unbreakable bond and a thrill for adventure.
