Where do I begin? I feel like I’ve lost touch with all my fans and let y’all down. I haven’t made a blog post in so long. Spud made one for me. (Wasn’t that post cute!)
My mom has really been busy. Busy with her job which has had her monopolizing the computer. I asked my dad if I could use his computer. But nooooooo. I couldn’t use his.
Well, as luck would have it (bad luck for my mom), the computer has become available due to my mom’s accident.
Don’t worry. She’s okay. We were at the marina, and she tripped over….guess who! Yep, Hoppy! She tumbled down on the asphalt drive and skidded down the hill.
She’s pretty skinned up and bruised. And Hoppy? He never knew anything happened.
Anyway, her injury has given me time to crank out another post to catch y’all up.
Hmmmm…..let’s see. The biggest news:
Our dock diving club has signed a contract to host a dock diving event here in Georgia! The humans in the club have been working on this for so long. Finally, I get to invite all my dog friends from all over to come down here to Georgia for an event.
Details? Glad you asked.
Name of Event: The Fishing Creek Outfitters Throwdown
Place: Milledgeville, Georgia
Dates: August 28-30, 2009
I want to say right now…..all of my dog friends, all of my fans, anyone reading this….you are all invited to The Fishing Creek Outfitters Throwdown.
“Catch up” item #2: We got an award….a Gold Hydrant Award….from our blog friends at “Life with Dogs.”
And THANK YOU to all the dogs over at Life with Dogs for the award. We are honored!!
“Catch up item #3”: We have a new club website. Okay, this is not so exciting to y’all, but it really means a lot to us Dixie Dock Doggers. My mom did the website. She loves that kind of stuff. (Personally, I think jumping off a dock is a lot more fun than computer stuff.)
“Catch up” item #4: We have two new practice docks and have had a practice at each of them. Wanna see some pics?
Spud wanted to try the EV rig. He didn’t quite get it. But he tried!
But again, it was Hoppy who took the prize for the goofiest. Look at this goober. Since it’s warm weather now, my mom got into the water thinking he would jump to her.
She got his favorite toy and shook it in front of his face, honestly believing he would jump to her.
It was just tooooooooo far down there for Hoppy.
Peanut butter is Hoppy’s most absolutelyest favorite thing in the entire world. He’s obsessed with peanut butter.
Yep, my mom’s no dummy. She knew what would get that boy off the dock.
He looked at it. He sniffed it.
Did he jump for it?
But I can honestly say I’ve never seen him stick his tongue out so far. He must have pulled out the reserve tongue trying to reach that peanut butter.
Ya know….he’s just too cute not to love. What a goofball.
My mom says she’s going to keep trying. He honestly acts like he wants to jump like Spud and me. One day he will, but until that day, we’re just going to keep laughing at him and his craziness.
That’s all I’ll catch you up on today. Our club is having a Fun Jump this Sunday. They have games and competitions and all kinds of fun things planned.
And guess what? They are going to vote on a Mr. and Ms. Dixie Dock Dog. Keep you fingers crossed that I win the Ms. Dixie Dock Dog. Now, how cool would that be!
Thanks again to all the dogs at Life with Dogs for the award. Y’all are the best. And, Sola, get up there on that dock at the New Hampshire event. Give it a shot. Pretty soon, you’ll be dragging your humans all over the country like we do.
See you on the dock,
Sally, the Captain of Team 3 Dawg Flite
Proud member of Dixie Dock Dogs
