Wellwoof, today was my dock divin' day! But I woke up this mornin' and was scratchin' my ear and shakin' my head. Ma wasn't sure we should go out to Stockton and get me all wet if I has an ear problem. Dadders said to go fur it, we's been plannin' on this fur weeks and it's my last 2011 jumpin' oppfurtunity. So in the car I went and off to Stockton Ma did drive. I didn't scratch my ear or shake my head the rest of the day! BOL!
This was my furst dock divin' event the dadders did not go to and ma had to drive over a hunderd miles to get us there. We left real early in the mornins, befure it was even light outside. But it was a little after 8 o' the clock when we got there.
Anywoofs, there was lotsa dogs! More dogs than we has usually encountered at dock divin'! The competition was pretty tuff!
On my furst jump I did a 13.01. My 2nd was a 12.03. The 13.01 got me 8th place in the Junior dog division at this point. Ma was hopin' we might get more footage on my 3rd and 4th jumps as only the top 10 dogs of each division were gonna make it to the finals. 8th place was not a very secure position!
But my 3rd and 4th jumps were both in the 11 foot range, which means I did not move up:( Ma almost took me home at this point, thinkin' I could not possibly have made the top 10. But curiosity won out and we stayed to see where I placed. I placed 10th! Whew, I made the finals! Just barely!
In the finals I furst did a 10.05, which is not very good fur me. But my 2nd jump was a 12.08 which pleased the ma. I got an 8th place rosette!
So it was a suspenseful day, from startin' off not even sure we would go with my ear actin' up to barely makin' the finals!
