Sleepy Protest

An interrupted Boom Boom nap results in a loud sleepy protest…until an entertaining TV show distracts the fuzzy mind and diverts attention.

As the sun sets, Landon settles into the den for his evening nap. To avoid the distracting light, he hides his head under the coffee table. When Hu-Dad comes into the room and creates noise, the Boomster is awakened and let’s loose with a loud protest.

Why are you waking me up?

Now the question is what will quiet the squeaking and squawking? The movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was on the TV at the scene where the Ferrari accidentally is driven out of the garage and down the hill, destroying it. Landon found that amount of destruction fascinating.

Wow! Some pup is in trouble for causing that much mayhem

    So funny that Landon watches TV. I guess he DID think it was a dog that started that mayhem!!

    I love how he watches tv.
    but then it’s not everyday that one sees a Ferrari sail through plate glass down a hill side through the trees.
