Multi-Speed Boom-Boom Film Friday

When your name is Boom-Boom, everyone knows you are fast. But did they know you were a multi-speed Boom-Boom?

I can fly! I can fly! One of his multi-speed gears.
I can fly! I can fly!

Bounds is an interesting word. We talk about someone bounding across a room and we mean they have a bounce in their step. Landon – aka Boom-Boom – seems to have springs in his paws and literally bounds at time (as the picture above shows). At the same time, he can shift gears and be sedate – for a few seconds.

Standing still . . . for a few seconds.
Standing still . . . for a few seconds.

And that is life with a Boom-Boom. Constant changing of speeds and games. What better way to share his raw, unfiltered enthusiasm than through a Film Friday. So enjoy a Multi-Speed Boom-Boom:

    I must tell you I have watched this video at least 20 times. It just makes me so happy. And it shows why most of us love our dogs so much. Boom Boom is happy ,energetic teasing , inquisitive , playful, does death defying leaps and turns, pillow nipping , changes mind in a split second about jumping on the couch, mind of his own… this video will be played by me over and over just because it shows LOVE and is a heartfelt example of our lives with our pups old and new, some not even with us anymore but never forgotten. Thank you Hu dad for this one.

      Thank you so much for the compliment. Landon – aka Boom-Boom – is just one exuberant pup and it makes us all laugh.

    Love Landon’s ability to soar though the air, and the sheer joy. What a fabulous video for a Friday, ????

    Hey, Landon! I like that “LOOK OUT” speed best! I’d sure love to do zoomies with you!
    Yours sincerely,

    Love those mid stride leaps. Very fancy. Though .. maybe not so good for furniture and lamps. Great video.

    I don’t know… maybe “Leap Leap” instead of “Boom Boom”? ????????❤❤

    LOVED this video !!! Loved him leaping over air , just because he can! Was just wondering where all the other pups were to allow you to video Boom Boom alone?

      Chuckling – the answer lies in the collision with Cheoah in the video – the rest get out of his way!

      At the time we filmed that, Frankie and Typhoon were napping under Hu-Dad’s desk in the study, Kiska and Qannik were outside, and Cheoah wandered out from the bedroom to see what was going on.
