Future Dock Diver?

Derby was introduced to the "real" dock diving pool last weekend! He did great!

We took a little intro class where he learned to jump off the ramp for a toy. Actually "learned" is a stretch since he pretty much dragged me up the stairs and right into the water! This spotty boy most definitely does not lack confidence. :)

Nothing overly exciting at this point, but I thought I'd share a little video:


He really had a such a fun time and it was a little challenging to get him *out* of the pool. In the first clip you can hear me calling him and he was all LALALALALALA I can't heeeeeeaaaaaaar you. I'm sure he just had water in his ears. :) Naughty spotty.

Next time we'll try him off the actual dock. I'm excited! Now I just need to work on getting rid of my horrendous farmer's tan. And to think I live in Florida. :)

On a different note, GOOD LUCK to all of my friends competing in DACOF this weekend! I'm extremely bummed that we won't be there, but it just wasn't in the cards for this year. Happy fast, FUN, clean runs to you all!

Great job, Derby! Looks like Lance the dock diving Dalmatian may have some serious competition with Derby!! He sure does look like he enjoys it. What tremendous exercise, too. Keep us posted on Derby's lessons!

Kim said...

Ha! I think Lance is safe for a while. :) But thanks! We're sure having a lot of fun.

I was so busy watching Derby I didn't even notice your farmer's tan hehe.

Derby is so awesome!!! He's totally fearless. I loved when he landed on the toy and when he put his face in the water hehe. So cute!
