Watching Our Six

When we are out for our daily walks, our resident radar—Landon aka Boom Boom—is always watching our six for potential trouble.

Who goes back there?

We mentioned just the other day how focused Boom Boom is on our walks, but we did leave out an important detail. He is acutely aware of any movement near us and keeps a close eye on things, particularly watching our six in case anyone comes from behind. He’s so attuned to his surroundings that other walkers have even noticed and jokingly referred to him as our radar unit. With Landon in our Herd, nothing is going to sneak up on us.
