The Turbo Title is for her Speed Retrieve. For those of you who do not know what SR is....it's when they hand a Dokken (Dead Fowl Trainer/fake dead duck) down at the very end of the pool, just above the water. Then you take your dog back to the starting line (20' front end of dock). The lights above the Dokken start yellows then green. When it turn green, you let your dog go to run down the dock, jump in to the water and swim to the Dokken. When they grab the Dokken, the timer stops. It's a timed competition for the fastest time.

Sally's best SR time is 6.94 seconds. The world record is something like 4.97. My goal for this season is to get her down to 6.5.

Here are some photos of one of our SR runs so you can see exactly what it is like.

And she's off! Down the dock:
