My Boy Thompson
It occurred to me that I really don't have good videos showing the way Thompson moves. In general he does better when he is running or moving fast. He may not be able to keep up with Diego-san and Theo when they are tearing around the house, but he holds his own. He has more difficulty when he is trying to walk slowly. He tends to think about every step and steadies himself when he moves his lone front leg forward so that he doesn't end up falling over. I love to watch him move because it isn't natural movement, and it's simultaneously unique to Thompson but familiar to the way I've seen other three legged animals move.
Capturing him on video isn't always the easiest. I never think to do it during the course of the average day and quite frankly he's moving around less and less as he gets older. Here I did capture him jumping up to his favorite drinking spot...
