Caption This: Boom Boom Defense

Landon needs your help, Dear Readers. Hu-Dad found him on the guest bed and he needs the best Boom Boom Defense.

Hu-Dad walked into the guest bedroom and found Landon on the bed, despite previous discussions about how that wasn’t appropriate. The look you see above is Boom Boom thinking of his best defense. So what did he say? Give us your best for this week’s Caption This.

    This bedspread is clearly just for show, so I am adding several warm layers of prime Siberian doublecoat — and it’s going to take me quite a while.

    We have such short lives and bring so much joy to our humans that I think we should be okay with getting up wherever we want.

    Yes! I am making sure that no dogs get up here for you! Aren’t I helpful? You should be paying for this service. I believe you know my going rate in liver treats.
