Boom Boom And The Evil Invader

An evil invader entered our house with its mighty roar, but Boom Boom faced the danger head-on and even attempted to make friends with the beast.

A quiet afternoon. The dogs softly snored in their naps. Hu-Dad clacked away at his keyboard. And then the peace was shattered with the roar of an evil invader. One of the biggest threats to canine tranquility arrived at Chez Herd.

Man the battle stations! Man the battle stations!
Man the battle stations! Man the battle stations!

Boom Boom shrieked for the others to gather their weapons and prepare for battle. They groggily muttered their replies, rolled over and went back to sleep, leaving poor Landon to defend the house by himself.

Ack! It's approaching. I must prepare to meet the beast head-on.

We must warn our more sensitive viewers. The next photo shows the beast and Landon nose to nose. Our brave canine does his best to befriend the invader, offering that universal symbol of canine invitation to games.

Hey, evil vacuum, you wanna play?

    Oh Boom Boom I guess you are one of those vacuum haters? One of our girls used to actually bite the head and I had to be careful she didn’t break her teeth. Our husky mix Bradley is cool with it and Sadie our hound mix if terrified! Amazaing how they all react so differently!
