Landon Saves Us All From Disaster

When a horrible disaster befell Chez Herd, our Superhero Boom Boom threw himself at the danger. Yes, we can say Landon saves us all.

Our superhero, Boom Boom, would rather not discuss his heroics, but Landon saves us all!

We will warn our younger viewers that the following graphic image might be too horrific. We strongly urge you to use discretion in looking at the destruction, but we think the photo is important to demonstrate Landon’s heroism in the face of such an explosive situation.

The pillow that exploded without warning.

Landon was found lying on top of the pillow, bravely pinning it to the ground to keep it from attacking others. He even found the compassion to hold the gaping wound in his mouth, stopping further leakage of its insides. We are happy to report that Boom Boom is safely recovering from the traumatic event, though the pillow remains in intensive care and may not fully recover.

Boom Boom the Brave saved us from danger!

    Boom Boom the Brave saves the day again. We didn’t know pillows were a threat, but Landon knew something was up. Way to protect the family!!!! Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

    I don’t know if it was deliberate, but the perspective of the last photo, combined with Landon’s expression really brings out his inner puppy. 😉

    Sometimes I think Boom Boom took over Q-Tip’s role in the house…

    This definitely qualifies Landon for a Hero Dog Award.

    What a hero Boom Boom! I hope you’re not too traumatized by this event.

    Little re-stuffing, little extra husky fur, bit of super glue, that leather pillow will e just fine in no time HA! Glad Landon was on the job, if Boom Boom the Brave had not been there, you could have lost a good portion of he house!

    Good boy Boom Boom-you are SO brave. That pillow could have exploded in the house and cause a VERY bad disaster!!! I wish the pillow a speedy recovery-lol!

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
