I got to do my favfurite thing in the world yesfurday, DOCK DIVE! While I did not improve with each jump, I did my personal best jump of 12'4". I also had my worst jump of 7' 6", back to back in the same wave!
I have not been stayin' in my down stay and kept creeping up while Mom was walkin' to the edge of the dock. Mom reset me about 3 times, then she got stage fright and did a bad throw. Mom needs to remember it is NOT about improvement or lookin' good on the dock to me. It is about havin' FUN!! But the competitive thing and wanting a to give a good perfurmance seems to be tuff things fur these humans to shake. Ah, woof!
The rest of my 4 remaining jumps were mostly a little over 10 feet and one was over 11 feet. Don't think this is too bad for a girl with NO official dive trainin' and a humom that's not the greatest thrower. We all know who the talent in this duo is!
Last we checked I was ranked 20th fur this event. The top 24 dogs get to compete in the finals. Unfurtunately I am not in the condition to go back fur the finals today. Just too dang tired and my tail is still a bit droopy. Ah, woof! :o(
To end on a good note, if any of my pals is infurested in seein' me dock divin' we put a video of me, when I was still fresh, on my page. Enjoy!
