A Focused Boom

Landon may be our class clown, but he is quite serious when it comes to our walks and transforms into a focused Boom Boom.

I'm busy here - a focused boom
I’m busy here

Landon’s reputation as a free spirit is very accurate. He’s often amusing himself with some invented game, racing around the house and bouncing off furniture (thus the Boom Boom nickname), or generally being a lovable goof. When we walk, though, he becomes quite a focused Boom and sets a determined pace. In today’s photo, he was doing his best to ignore the photographer.

    Hu-Dad wasn’t Mr. Focus walk the same guy who used to walk backwards?? He is starting to mature. Love it!

      His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey used to walk backwards. And he still does. Ty refuses to conform to any human rules.

      Landon (aka, Boom Boom) is serious about very little which makes his walking so amusing.

    The look of a man on a mission.

    LOVE that focused face on Boom Boom! He seems to be a multi task kind of guy. Walks are one thing and BOOMING around the house another. Love that silly boy!

    That is what I always loved about my Huskies, move forward all the time! Don’t know what happened to my girl Ruby, she is a nose with legs when we go walking or hiking..
