Hey All

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."

Wooooo Hoooooooooooooo!

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.
