Boom Boom Making Faces

Landon took a simple request from Hu-Dad—pose nicely for some photographs for the website—and turned it into a game of making faces.

Landon was too busy talking back to Hu-Dad.

Hu-Dad thinks that because we are a working breed we should actually work a little around the house to earn our keep. For example, yesterday, he asked Landon to pose pretty for a few simple photographs for today’s blog post. This may sound like a reasonable request to some of you, but Landon rolled his eyes at the suggestion.

After several minutes of coaxing, Hu-Dad thought he had Landon convinced to sit still for a couple of quick shots. He raised the camera, focused, and…

The start of a zoomie. The next photos simply show grass because Landon was gone.

    Mom sez: (Grinning) We can relate to Landon’s antics. Ebby also hates having her picture taken, and like Landon, goes into all sorts of contortions the minute she see’s the camera, or my iPhone come out. When I stopped using the camera, and began using the iPhone, I used to be able to catch her, but she soon caught on to the iPhone thing. Sometimes, Siberians are just too doggone smart for their own good!

    Oh boy-a case of a sibe being silly and Landon is VERY silly. That picture of the grass after Boom Boom took off must have made you a little-lol-frustrated Hu-Dad!
