Today went to the San Jose Flea Market fur a dock divin' event. Furst did not see no fleas to buy and did not see fleas shoppin' fur stuffs either! BOL!
Anywoofs, I had mostly 11 foot jumps this day. Kinda mediocre fur me:| I did have my 2nd best jump ever of 15'6"! So that one was pretty good:)
Also I has started catchin' the ball in mid air! There is a new video of me on my page. It's kinda hard to see but I catch the ball, honest!
We saw the nice trainer lady who furst started me on my dock divin' path. It had been awoofwhile since we last saw her. As usual her pup, Pyro, came away as the top jumpin' dog. Plus, she has a new little four month old puppy, Tonka. Tonka is too young to compete yet, but he was gettin' used to the pool. Already luvs the water, seems to be a natural fur this sport.
I did make it into the finals. With my 15' qualifing jump I ended up jumpin' with the big dogs. But I only did an even 11 feet in the finals. Didn't think I'd win anything so left after my jump. Turns out I got 3rd place fur the Junior category. Ma's a bit bummed we didn't stay to get my rosette:( But I don't care! I GOTTA GO DOCK DIVIN':))

Woofs! Furst woke up kinda early fur a Safurday. Then went with Ma to pick up My Boy from school. Yes, school! But not his school. He is a big kid in middle school. He spent the night in the playin' field of the elementary school. They are havin' their annual carnival today and they have booths and stuff at the school. My Boy with his Boy Scout troop spent the night to make sure nobody messes with the carnival stuff. It's just a nice thing they do every year fur the little kids and the school. Anyhowls, me and Ma arrived just as they was puttin' away their tents and packin' their stuffs up. I had such fun sayin' hellos to everyone and Ma got my ball out so I gotta play a bit o' fetch!
Then we came home. My boy was pretty tired so he took a long nap. Guess he didn't sleep too much at night last night, BOL!
Next neighbor-with-a-pond man came by and invited Da to come over fur a visit. I gotta come along! But, again, I even look at the pond and both o' those guys yells "NO!" like I'm gonna jump right in there! Sneak a swim a coupla times and the peoples thinks I gots no dignity or self controls, geesh! I did NOT jump in the pond and we had a nice visit. Even found a frisbee and they were courteous enuf to throw it fur me!
Last, ended the day with a nice long walk. To start we saw a little family of quail. Looks like the babes are almost half way to full grown. Guess we missed the teenie, tiny stage this year, when they are barely bigger than the eggs they hatched from. They grow so fast it's easy to miss!
I am still on the hunt fur little ground dwellin' critters. There are a coupla places on our walk that I am especially alert. But no luck today. Didn't get nuthin!
Next there is a certain spot on our walk that we sumptimes hear a beautiful bird song! This song is very different from the bird songs we are used to. We don't get to hear it everytime but today we did! This is the furst year Ma has noticed it.
Finally, I am kinda hopin' the Rapture does not happen today! I got dock divin' set up fur tomorrow!

I has been huntin' fur gophers fur the last three weeks or so. Ma lets me do it figurin' those critters hears me comin' long befure I starts diggin'. My Rainbow sisfur spent her whole lifetime huntin' and diggin' and never got one in 12 years! And Ma says she was a much more intense digger/hunter than me!
Anywoof, we went fur a nice long walk this afternoon. We was cooped up in the house this mornin' cause o' the rain and hail. On the way back Ma and I saw a li'l critter stickin' his head outta his hole. I watched and waited and suddenly I pounced! Again, Ma figured he would quickly duck into his hole and be long gone. No sirree, not with this quick pouncin' girl! I pulled his li'l furry butt right outta there! But I let 'im go right away. Ma didn't even know I had 'im until I went after 'im again! Then she saw a li'l black body walkin' around in the grass! At furst she thought it was a mouse but then realized it's probably a mole! Seems I used a soft mouth on 'im cause he wasn't at all hurt, just dazed and surprised to be outta his hole. At this point Ma pulled me away and hoped the li'l guy would find his way back. I'm kinda glad! I wasn't sure what I was supposta do once I had 'im! I'm not a terrier after all!

Today Da and my boy went away somewheres. It was just me an ma home all day. It was a nice day, not too hot, not too cold. So ma decided to work on the weeds in the front yard. Ma is a fair weather gardener. The weather has to be just right fur her to get out there. So stuff builds up. There was lotsa weeds.
Anywoofs, I luvs it when the humans is outside doin' yard works. Sumhow it is so much funner to bring the ball when fetch is not the main object of the human's attention. The ball gets thrown I brings it back. Sumptimes I has to wait a bit befure it gets thrown again because the thrower is busy doin' other stuffs. This is better than the thrower standin' there expectin' me to "hurry up" and bring it back. I had a good day today and now I is very tired.
Also I got signed up to go dock divin' again in two weeks! Woo-hoo!

Our neighbors across the street have a pond in their yard. None of the peoples likes me goin' over there uninvited! A coupla times last year I took a quick dip in their pond...So I gained a reputation, not a good one.
Anywoof, pond neighbors had an Easter party yesfurday. My family was invited, I was not. It was a bit rainey and cold, so all the peoples were in the pond neighbors' house. I was all alone in my house:( What a way to spend Easter, all alone! Sigh!
But later the rain cleared away and the sun came out. The party moved outside! The kids had an Easter egg hunt. Finally Da came home and got me. I gotta to go down and see everyone! I was so happy! There was kids and lotsa people I never met befure! I luv meetin' new peoples! My tail was waggin' the whole time!
Ma made a point of tellin' me to "leave it" about the pond. It was not necessary! I knew better! I did not ruin their party and jump in the pond! I was a good guest!
I has not been in that pond fur close to a year now! Hopefurly I am leavin' that bad reputation behind!

One coat was fluffy, one is sleek
One pup gruff, the other pup meek
They seem so different
and yet so alike
Two pretty black girls
Who brought a family delight
One is friendly, one was fierce
One pup at the Rainbow, the other on earth
Both relish the outdoors
They don't mind the rain
But laying in the sunshine, what can be more sane?
One lives to fetch, one couldn't miss her walk
One rarely barked, the other luvs to talk
They've taught us so much
One teaches us still
Everyday for her is such a big thrill
One tail is straight, one was curly
One is gone from this earth, she left us too early
Cry though we might
There's love and there's light
For newly winged angels about to take flight
Today is, my sisfur befure me, Jamaica's Rainbow day. Jamaica just got her own page today! Feel free to go by and woof a hello!

I gotta go to the office with Ma today! Yay, I like goin' along! Anyhowls, we had important business to do! Hadta walk to the bank to deposit sum checks. Nuthin eventful on the way over. After makin' the deposit Ma threw my ball fur me a bit at the little park behind the bank. As usual I had lotsa fun with that.
But on the way back I was one lucky pup! Sum super generous, nice bein' left a whole fried chicken drumstick layin' on the ground fur the furst lucky, hungry pup to come along and scarf it on down! Score! I was that lucky pup! But quick as lickety split Ma yelled fur me to 'leave it!'! And, wellwoof, I spit that drumstick out! What the howls?! WHY the fur did I do that? Just listened outta habit I guess! By the time I realized what I had done and got my wits back, I was outta leash reach of that drumstick! Major bummer!!!

Woofs! What an excitin' weekend I had!
Furst, I spent all day Safurday outside while ma did sum yard works. She would throw my ball fur me occasionally in between doin' her stuffs. We had a little street crossin' snafoo I barked about yesfurday.
But the best part about Safurday was Safurday night! After dinner, me, ma and da got in the car and drove to the airport! I still did not getta see my boy fly! But he flew back to the Oakland Airport! Whoopee, my boy is back! I sure was glad to see him!
Today, Sunnyday, me, ma and da got in the car and drove to Hollister fur Dock Divin'! Woof-howl! That sure was a surprise!
I did not have a personal best this time and I did not win any ribbons fur the qualifyin' heats. But I did win a pretty pink rosette fur 5th place in the Open finals!
