Boom Boom Bobbling Balance Bit

Landon (aka Boom Boom) has quite the fondness for being on top of things like a picnic table. A rocking chair, however, created a bobbling balance bit.

The look he wanted.

The look he wanted.

Being on the ground on the picketline is ok, but Landon much prefers a higher location for scouting the campground. With his squeaks and squawks – noises for communicating he wants something, Landon convinced the Hu-Dad to let him sit in one of the camp rocking chairs. Unfortunately, the rocking part was somewhat unexpected.

Let me dig claws in your knee for balance.

After a wee bit of effort – and quite a few spills from the chair, Landon finally achieved the cool look he was going for.

Don't doubt me, humans.

    Mom sez: Well, if he’s like most Huskies I know, he’s nothing if not persistent. Remembering how our beloved Ayla used to spend hours trying to make a tennis ball balance on the rung of a wooden kitchen chair, and she DID it, quite a few times.
