You may remember when I came to live in my forever and ever home with my momma that I was not a big fan of water. Then my best pal Bert showed me that water can be fun fun fun. In the last year and a half I have watched Bert closely. And with his coaching I think I may have found a new thing that I LOVE.
I LOVE jumping and diving into the water!
Bert told me that maybe I should try dock diving. Dock diving? I said.
Bert: "Ya Bud, dock diving. It's where you compete with other doggies to see how far you can jump off a dock or platform. You've got great form Buddy."
Bert: "And you keep jumping further and further."
Bert: "And while there are no points for splash I give your splash a big fluffy tails up."
Bert: "What ya say Bud ya want to train for dock diving this summer?"
Buddy: "Will sticks be involved?"
Bert: "Why not."
"I'm in Bert old pal. If you keep coaching me."
Bert: "Well done grasshopper, well done. He's pretty great isn't he Blogville? With his enthusiasm and my coaching this Fat Head could go far."
Momma and I did some research when we got home about dock diving dogs and we could only find one Pit Bull who does this on a competitive level. Now I know there is a difference between diving off a dock and leaping from a muddy bank, but who knows maybe I will make a BIG splash in this dock diving sport. At least I will have fun practicing/training for it. And really all I want to do is have fun.
