    Splash Dogs (21'1"!!! Three new photos on page two, post 25!)

    Well, we had a lot of fun today, even though we didn't do our best. Our best jump was 18'6" and we got first in the senior division in the first wave and second in the second wave. We will go tomorrow, too, and see how we do in the finals! But, for now, here are a couple of photos. The photo of him jumping was probably our worst jump, around 14 feet, but David got a great shot of him! And, the one of us is just cute. Although I look like a dwarf or something, hahaha. My knees are bent, though. It was actually snowing today! We've had weather in the 80s and it snowed today. Texas can bite me.

    Whoa, it was cold enough to snow and you guys were dock diving! That is dedication. But the pictures really did come out great, so I am glad you went and were able to share them with us.

    It's supposed to be in the fifties tomorrow (today, since it's after midnight!), so it should be a much better day for dock jumping. Although I was really hoping we would have a warm day! I think the next event I'll be able to attend will be in June, so hopefully we can get out to practice in the meantime.

    Yeah, it was cold! But, most of the dogs weren't really bugged by it at all. We bought a neoprene vest for Finn, and it was so cool to take it off and see all the steam released! It works really well at keeping his entire midsection warm.

    It was actually colder at the Fort Worth Cabella's event we went to for his first time! But, it looks like it's going to be a nice day today! Wish us luck!

    Great pictures. Do they measure distance by where the front, or back feet, strike the water ? Finn has great form & looks like he enjoys himself.

    Finn you are such an amazing dog! Everytime I see a picture of you jumping it looks like so much fun, and you look so free. I"m glad that you can share these wonderful pictures with us.

    And the second picture of you and Finn looks so happy

    It's great to see pictures of Finn jumping! I've only seen one dock dogs event and it was amazing to watch the dogs. Good luck tomorrow! **whoops, I meant today.**
