How Many Tries Did It Take?

As well-behaved Siberian Huskies (snicker), when Hu-Dad gets a good photo of us, he’s asked, “How many tries did it take?”

What? I do this all the time. - how many tries did it take
What? I do this all the time.

For a dog nicknamed Boom Boom, Landon sure is sitting pretty in this photo. How many tries did it take? Hu-Dad says just one—unless you count the bouncing, racing, twirling, digging, wrestling, not-listening, and general-mayhem-causing outtakes. There might have been eleventy-seven bazillion of those.

    More outtakes than a Jackie Chan movie?! And probably just as fun!

    There’s usually a magic word that’ll freeze them, but only for about three seconds. It’s a challenge for certain.
