I'm a chocolate lab and a member of Dixie Dock Dogs, and we practice every weekend. My brother, Spud, is a yellow lab and together we make up Team Fire and Ice, a dock diving team.
I've been to several competitions and won medals, ribbons and certificates. Here are the first ribbons I ever won. It was at a competition in Jacksonville, Florida. I came in third place!!! It was so exciting for both me and my mom.
And here is a picture of me with my mom with the first medals I ever won. I won them at a competition in Columbus, Georgia. The big medal that looks like a star was for 2nd place in Speed Retrieve. Here's a link to some photos that show me doing one of my Speed Retrieve runs. Wow! Can you tell how intense I was and how much I wanted to win. So did my mom!! The other smaller medals were for a couple of second place finishes and one third place finish in the waves (qualifying rounds).
Take a look at this music video my mom made of me at practice one day. I think you can tell how much I LOVE DOCK DIVING!!
Here are some other photos of me dock diving. I hope you like looking at them. I certainly liked jumping way out there in the air! It's called "getting big air." Right now I can jump over 20 feet...when I really, really try. But I pretty consistently hit 17 - 20 feet all the time. These first photos are of me jumping at a competion I went to in Punta Gorda, Florida.
Here are a few from my practices. I'm trying to show you how acrobatic I can be!
