    WinkDock Diving pics from Va. Beach!

    Team 3 Dawg Flite went to a DockDogs event up in Virginia Beach this weekend. It was a really awesome event....very hot, but lots of great people and big jumping dogs.

    Unfortunately, Sally and Spud were not among the big jumping dogs. It was not our best weekend. Sally did okay in Big Air....one 1st place and one 3rd place (both Senior). Her best jump was 19' which is about average for her. Her best Speed Retrieve run was only 7.63 seconds which is not good at all for her. I think the heat got to her and she just gave out of gas. She did, however, have a great time jumping which is the bottom line anyway.

    Poor Spud was the one I really felt sorry for. He did one jump Friday (1st place Senior) and then Saturday morning, we noticed he had cold tail. So we scratched him from all of Saturday's jumps. He jumped once more Sunday morning, but I think he didn't feel too good.

    Hoppy actually did pretty good. He never went off the dock, but he did retrieve the wubba by going down the exit ramp which is a huge first step.

    Here are some pics. One of Sally's Speed Retrieve heats:

    Some Big Air from Sally:








    On this jump, she almost went in on her back. Notice how she tucked her tail and prepared for a landing flat on her back.....which is almost how she landed. But she never let go of that duck!

    And of course, some Hoppy antics upon the dock. Since Spud didn't jump on Saturday, Hoppy was so proud to be able to wear his brother's competition vest. Didn't he look good!!!

    Just a few more:

    Me getting the crowd revved up in cheering for Hoppy, hoping maybe that might help him jump:




    One of poor Spud. I felt so sorry for him. This was the one and only ribbon he received all weekend.

    And one more of Hoppy just because I thought he was so sweet up there:

    Great photos. Hoppy sure did entertain the crowd I'll bet.

    I love the picture of Hoppy licking your face. It almost looks as if he is saying "are you sure about this mom?". What a sweet boy. Sally is so intense. I love watching her pictures. Thanks for sharing!
