    DefaultA weekend in the sun...

    Back from dock jumping competition in Sterling Heights at the petapolooza event. Wheeew. HOT AS HELL. Which made the dock pool the best place to be.

    The heat affected all of the dogs..including the big jumping air dogs that typically hit 24 + feet. Irregardless, we had an enjoyable weekend...and I will apologize for no pictures...I couldn't find anyone to take any.

    Rider ran in three splashes...2 yesterday and 1 this morning. While he did not place in any of them, he was able to put up 3 qualifying legs in the Senior division (15' to 19'9") toward his title. He got three qualifying medals.

    He jumped 15'2", 15'4", 14'6", 16'8", 13' and 15'6". All really respectable jumps.

    I am really proud of my chocolate jumping bean...and have really come to enjoy this particular sport. I have met some really cool people and dogs...alot of which are rescue dogs.

    Anyways, I hope you all managed to stay cool this weekend.

    Good job Rider! Dock jumping amazes me. I wish we had a dock at our pond so I could try it with my two.

    Very cool Dani! Those sound like some great jumps!

    Congrats on getting 3 qualifying legs! Wooo hoo!

    I so wish I could get into this sport down here. I'm going to have to start asking around. Surely someone does this!
