The Rare Bounceless Boom Boom

Landon’s nickname comes from his perpetual motion throughout the house, but we have captured moments of the rare bounceless Boom Boom.

A tired Sibe plus a soft cushion equals a bounceless Boom Boom.

The Boom received his primary nickname by springing from spot to spot throughout the house (and yard). He rarely walks and his runs more closely resemble a kangaroo over a gazelle. But, at the end of the day and after much exercise, a moment arrives when a Boom melts into the closest couch and relaxes for the evening. Hu-Dad figured this moment was rare enough to commemorate with a few photographs.

    His body’s still, but you can see the mind in full throttle.

    Mom sez: I’ve never noticed before, but does Landon have a bit of a dirty face? Was wondering if he’s been digging somewhere, and that would account for his being so tired, and in need of a wee nap.

      Boom Boom usually has a little dirt on his face, but part of that is his natural coloring too.
