Dangerous Photography

Using a camera may not seem like a particularly hazardous hobby, but Hu-Dad has the bruise to prove that dangerous photography is a real thing.

  1. Oh No Hu-Dad-a husky traveling at warp speed is a dangerous thing! I hope you iced the bruise and it feels better today. Landon ONLY wanted to say-“Hi”! When ours was young and he was traveling like that-I held onto the house for dear life as he traveled to meet me while I stook in the yard with him!

  2. Oh my goodness that’s a fast moving Sibe!!! I hope all participants are safe, well, and unhurt!!

  3. Oh the hard Head of a Husky…I know all too well! Boom looks crazy in that last photo. Just nuts!😜 He’s so funny and expressive. As he gains speed, his eyes grow wider. Landon, you’ve been a Clown since you joined the Pack. Keep up the good work…We need a daily dose if Boom!😄
