Watch Out – When Zoomies Go Wrong

The exhilaration of speed sometimes just can’t be resisted, but sometimes, you have to be aware of the dangers when zoomies go wrong.

The need for speed!

The need for speed!

Sometimes, you just need to break loose and race around the yard or house with total abandon. There is nothing quite like the sheer joy of hitting the afterburners and achieving maximum speed.

Happy feet!

Happy feet!

Unfortunately, in a multiple dog household, there is one great risk to mindlessly racing around the yard. Fortunately, some excellent piloting skill allowed Landon to avoid the ultimate disaster.

Oops, sorry, Frankie, did not mean to interrupt your, uh, break time.

    Landon, it is a good thing you are a high flyer and avoided a collision with your big brother at such a delicate time. I am sure Frankie had something to say to you later.
