We thought I'd be havin' dock divin' opportunities almost every month this year. The local place we found, about 2 hours away, had dates all thru the year until October. Wellwoof, now they've gone and pulled all those dates off the Splash Dogs schedule! So Ma thought she'd try and schedule sum private time fur me and sum pup furiends, but they are not accepting private reservations either! This is the same group Ma approached about me joinin' their team earlier this year. So we is afeared sumptin is wrong over there and Ma is grateful they did not just take our $ then close up shop!
So looks like my only opportunity left this year is at the Sonoma County Fair which is goin' on fur the next 3 weeks. Ma has thought and thought about this and has decided she is not gonna drive 8 to 10 hours round trip just so I can dock dive:(
But to make up fur it she is gonna take me to the beach in Santa Cruz which is only about 40 minutes away:D We can practice with me jumpin' in the waves!

You may have to have your folks install the big pool in your backyard. Then you can invite all your pals to dock diving time!
I have a beach in my neighborhood. It is a shame that you have to drive so far to get to a beach that allows dogs.
Hey Tux, that's a good idea! I can get my own dock/pool, then I'd be jumpin' everyday! I gotta go bug my dadders to get goin' on that!
You is one lucky pup, DFB! As the crow flies the beach is not that far away, but we live in the mountains so we gotsta take sum windy mountain roads to get there. 40 minutes in the car is way better than hours!
Although at this point I hate getting wet, for you your furry own pool sounds like a win win...win for you to practice and a win for your boy & furmily who probably like to swim, too...I have heard of indoor pools in the homes of peeps that are just made for swimming laps, for fitness, so perhaps that would make a good dock diving arrangement, too?
Sorry you lost the other arrangements.
BUT....the BEACH is paradise... and wet is wet !! This will be WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!
Thanks, MrJack and Flicka! It would be nice to have my own pool but goin' to the beach works too!
bummer.. what now? This is really a shock knowing how much you love the dock diving *hugs*
But the Santa Cruz beach is great! Hope you had fun :o)
Happy splash and woofs, Jojo and sonja
