Landon loves his role in the house – the not very serious clown who enjoys creating games from everything. His nickname, Boom Boom, came from his inability to walk from place to place rather than bounce.

Despite the stereotype that Siberian Huskies have blue eyes, Landon is the only one currently in our family with both eyes that color. But he’s okay with that because he loves making the normal be not-so-normal.

    Mom’n Ebby both say: Never mind, Landon, you are a beautiful, handsome boy, and being the only blue-eyed Sibe in the tribe only makes you MORE special!
