Boom Boom Squeals Of Delight

When we return from an RV trip, we have our own siren to clear traffic on the way home – aka, the Boom Boom Squeals of Delight (this week’s Film Friday).

Because of the steep hill to our house, we park our RV in the valley. After transferring the dogs to the Jeep, we take the short 4 mile drive up the mountain and to our house. Through the entire drive, Landon is just a wee bit excited and we have Boom Boom Squeals of Delight. Hu-Dad decide to turn the dashcam to the interior of the car and capture Landon’s singing, squealing, squawking noises as we took the drive home.

So be warned. This week’s video music is provided by Landon in full stereo sound. If you are hiding in your cubicle pretending to work, this is probably not the video that you want to play with the volume full blast. On the otherhand, if you want your neighbor to come visit, turn it up!

    Leena does this going to/coming back from everywhere if I drive. Does Landon do it going everywhere, or just coming back? Or just from RVing?

      He does it when we first leave he house going anywhere, when we are headed to somewhere cool he recognizes (e.g., a walking trail, vet, etc.), and upon the return to the house after being away a while like RV trips. just normal returns don’t garner the same excitement.

        Fair enough. Leena seems to do it anytime I’m driving in my car. If I’m the passenger in my mom’s truck with her driving, Leena could care less.

        Now…if Leena recognizes we’re headed anywhere near Bass Pro Shops here, or Petsmart here in Bristol, or a few roads she doesn’t like, she turns into extra demon mode husky no matter what bouncing and whining.

    What a good singer he is. His happiness being home is just heart warming.

    Ok I don’t mean to overstep my bounds here
    And I did enjoy your siren but I have to ask… didn’t you forget someone ?
    The seat next to you appeared empty ?? Does your partner not enjoy the celebration ride home or is there more than one trip ?

      Laughing. Notice the big red pickup truck following us up the hill. That has loaded with all of the supplies from our RV trip. One vehicle for us and one vehicle for supplies.

    I had a german shepherd that would do the singing every time we took her swimming. She knew we were headed to the water area (wherever it was she could smell it) and would howl and sing the whole way there out the window. I miss that terribly. Now we just do howling sessions with the german shepherds we have now every once in awhile. My daughter and I howl along with them and the dogs love it. It actually feels good to let your inner animal howl. Maybe if more of us let ourselves just howl, there would not be so much anger in the world.

    Oh my gosh what a happy boy ????????????

  8. BJ Mills on March 30, 2018 at 6:58 am

    Oh my! I love it! He missed his yard, his house.. His beautiful eyes and singing shows how he has settled in to the Herd. I teared up at his happiness wondering what his ”before” was if he could tell us. Sweet boy, you put a huge smile on my face for the day!! HAPPY EASTER!!

      Unlike some other members of The Herd, Landon’s background is not a mystery to us. He developed a taste for cats – quite literally – in his previous home and needed to find a home that could control his predator instincts. He is such a sweet boy that it may be hard to imagine, but that’s the background. Thanks to the wonderful team at Southern Siberian Rescue, he made his way to us – a cat free zone.

        OOOO that would be a problem. So glad he is obviously happy and at home with no kitties!

    OMG-LOVE the singing and SO HAPPY to be home!!!!!
