Hot Day Energy Conservation

Hu-Dad encouraged everyone to practice good energy conservation yesterday as we were suffering our hottest day of the year. Of course, we don’t expect we will get a lot of sympathy when we mention our high was 80ºF (27ºC), the first 80º day we have seen all summer.

Landon apparently misunderstood the message because he was burning energy off with zoomies around the yard.

Not slowing down.

He would come in for a pit stop, drink lots of water, and head back out to practice more laps.

Zigging and zagging.

Hu-Dad suggested that Boom Boom should slow it down a little before he caused a sonic boom. This was the response:

A Sonic Boom Boom.

    He has such a bushy tail. It is like his entire body is normal husky short hair, but his tail is Ms Kiska’s long hair POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFY tail.

    Really enjoy watching him fly with that beautiful plume of a tail.

    Sweet Landon does not know the concept of energy conservation. He also knows his many fans love his zoomies and leaps.
