Had a bit of a mediocre day today:( The ma says I did not go outta my 11 foot comfurt zone. I jumped 11'8" then 11'6" in my 2 jumps of my furst wave. I did win a 2nd place Junior ribbon for this wave:)
Then I jumped 8'11" in my furst jump of my second wave. This is the shortest measured jump of my dock divin' career! My furst jump of my furst competition back in 2010 was over 9 feet. I has not jumped less than 10 feet since! But I was havin' a hard time stayin' in my sit stay and the ma decided to try it my way. She let me creep forward a bit and I only had half the dock to run.
After seein' the results of doin' it my way, we went back to her way of makin' me stay then usin' mosta the dock to get a nice runnin' leap. I did 11'9" on my last jump of the day. Not sure where I placed as we left after this jump and the results have not been posted on the infurnet yet.
But no mediocrity in the havin' fun department! I always do super good at that!
Also, sooner or later, we thought it might happen, but sum pup's poor mom fell into the pool! OMD! She was lookin' back at her pup and just stepped a bit too far and, PLOP!, in she went! Her pup seemed a bit surprised but he jumped in right after her! BOL! The lady was a real trooper and let her pup jump one more time while she was soakin' wet. My ma felt bad as this was their furst dock divin' event. Hope they had enuf fun earlier in the day and might consider comin' back!
The finals are on Easter Sunday. We will be missin' out on them this time.

An unfur in the pool!
That's a new way to encourage your pup...
I am glad you had fun, nevfur mind the statistics!
I think the most important thing is to have fun!
Thanks, MrJack & Demon!
Fun had is all that matters... and short is good !
you still did great and like Flicka said, as long as you are having fun!!!
Oh, yeah, I had lotsa fun! Eleven footers don't bother me! But the ma likes me to throw in a 12 or 13 footer once in a while. She knows I can do it, is all.
OMD! Dat poor wady in da pool :O So nice ob hur pup tu twy tu wescue hur :D
BOL, Zaidie, I thought he was jumpin' in to help her feel not so conspicuous in there!
Dock jumping sounds like so much fun. Dad sure wouldn`t mind landing in the pool with me! :)
Wesley, if ya like water and toys it is fun! Sumptimes peoples do purposely jump in to celebrate their pup havin' a new personal best or breakin' sum goal like 20'. But we had never seen an accidental human jump!
Always listen to yur mama! OMD, I woof the part about the lady in the water and the pup jumpin in after her. BOL I hope they come back. Dock divin is so cool! I wish I could do that... and my mama, she'd be the lady in the pool fur sure. BOL
Hi Miley May! My ma is always thinkin' she might fall in cause she looks back at me since I am always breakin' my stay! Sumday, sumday! Mwahahaha!
