Dock Dud...

Sooooo, my first experience with jumping off a dock didn't go that well. My human did expect that I wouldn't jump, and well, her expectation was met.

I went up there about 4 times, and I will say I got closer each time...but the pool is just sooooo big!! It looked really deep too!!

So we sat in the bleachers and watched the other dogs jump. MAN–were they amamzing!! I saw Forrest Gumpy (the Parson Russell Terrier) jump 17 feet!!! Apparently he was having an "off" day! BOL! He was just my size, so he gave my human some hope for me!

An awesome Border Collie named Diesel jumped 22 feet!!!

I walked to the ramp and sipped at the water.

Well, tomorrow is a new day, we didn't compete in our wave today just did some practice time, so we're going back tomorrow to try again. I'm probably going to get to go to the beach for some water practice today! That's definitely an upside!

Simba, You are not a dock dud , just a dock dog that hasnt learned how to do the jump! Am happy to hear a JRT is jumping so well, if I was younger my lady would probally let me do it cause I love swimming and retreiving!
My lady has dog diving pics at her website if you want to see some.

Oh you....keep trying, I'm sure you just have to get used to the idea!!! I got to go swimmin' a little yesterday after our agility trial. There was a big lake there. They said to me after 'you're not a sheltie, sheltie's don't swim', well I showed them and you can too!

Woofs, Johann

Hey Simba,
We're glad we found your blog. Mama just loves Manchester Terriers. In fact before she ever bought wire fox terriers, she was looking for Manchesters, but none were around here in Iowa at the time. You look like you'll do really well in agility. Glad you started blogging. Please visit our blog soon & we'll add a link to yours on our site. Have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
