Dock Diving Personal Best......cool photos
As promised, here is the series of photos my dad took of my personal best jump of 20'1" at the Waterfowl Festival up in Easton, Maryland last weekend. The series starts with me running down the dock and follows through all the way to splash down! Then, of course, there are two celebration photos....one of my crazy mom and one of me!
Sally is a 2-year-old Chocolate Lab, and Spud is a 2-year-old Yellow Lab. Avid dock divers, Sally has her Senior Title in Big Air, Turbo Title in Speed Retrieve, and Cadet Title in Extreme Vertical. Spud has his Master Title in Big Air. Hoppy is a 2-year-old Yellow Lab who is in training to be a dock diver. Badger is a 9-year-old Fox Red Lab who also travels with the team and will be training soon. Team 4 Dawg Flite are members of Dixie Dock Dogs, a dock diving club for the Atlanta/NE Georgia area. They live with their owners and handlers, Bill and Nancy Akin, in Watkinsville, GA, a small town just outside of Athens. Team 4 Dawg Flite has been to dock diving competions all over the Southeast and Midwest.
Sally is participating in a DockDogs Jump-a-thon at the DockDogs Nationals in October this year. ALL of the proceeds go to the charity Chase Away Canine Cancer. Follow this link to help Sally with this her cause so we can get rid of this terrible disease that affects millions of dogs each year.
