Lost In Translation

Hu-Dad is muttering something about rules and regulations, but his words seem to be lost in translation to Boom Boom.

I'm not sure I understand - lost in translation
I’m not sure I understand

A moment of connection. Landon looked straight at Hu-Dad. The human spoke. Rules blah blah blah and expected behavior blah blah blah and normal dogs blah blah blah. Let’s just say the conversation was lost in translation because Boom Boom went right back to Boom Booming around the yard.

    I have to agree with Jean!! The Boom Boom understands you he just doesn’t understand why you are telling him!! Landon aka Boom Boom just has to BOOM rules don’t really apply!!💕🐾🐾
