Dock dog? I don’t think so!

Today we went to the All About Dogs Show in Southend but it was crazy hot so we didn’t stay long. We got there really early and I had a quick go at the agility course before it got busy. I’ve almost got the handle of jumping over the hurdles now. But my favourite part is the A frame, I didn’t need any prompting to run over that:-) Daddy took loads of pictures of that part so I’ll show some more at a later date. I just hope mummy and daddy will get themselves organised and sign me up for an agility class soon.

I made a few friends and was pleased to see that the Inuit dogs who were at the previous event all recognised me. Everyone watching was amazed that as soon as the dogs saw me they rushed over to say hello and one tried to play with me through the fence:-)

The Dock Dogs people were there too. The were hosting an event where you dive into a big swimming pool and the dog who could dive the furthest won a prize. As I’m new to swimming daddy didn’t think I’d even try it but as it was hot it seemed like a good way to cool down. I didn’t dive in as you’re supposed to but I did cautiously go down the ramp and even did a bit of a doggy paddle. I tried to get out of the side of the pool though which made everyone laugh. Needless to say I didn’t make it into the actual contest.

I hope you’re all keeping cool. I’m in front of the fan covered in a wet towel lol. We might have a BBQ later – yum:-)

    Dock dogs are super cool, but I think the best ones are labs. I have never tried but it looks fun.

  23. Perhaps you are more a sit on the beach with a drink kind of dog and there is nothing wrong with that! Lady would love Phody to be a dock dog, but cause he gets so sick in the car it is hard to take him. We hope you get agility classes, they are fun. Lee and Phod

  24. Agility does look really fun! I wish I could take classes!

    We are envious. We used to do agility when we were younger but someone got lazy (not us) so we only do weaving in the garden now. You do get lots of treats when doing agility – its called “motivation” – but only at the end unfortunately. What a fun day. Honey and Nutty

  26. No wonder you were tired on the ride home. You had quite an eventful day! Looks like loads of fun and Poppy is jealous of all the dogs you got to make friends with. 😀

  27. WOWSA! Sure looks like you had a good time! And, might I say, you look like a PRO! Good work gurl!

    It was fun, Misaki! And you could have even more amusement with your Mom and Dad – just look at carefully what happens in the background in the pic No. 5!!!

  29. You’re so clever and brave Misaki 🙂

  30. Dalton says:

    Looks like great fun!

  31. Will and Eko says:

    Awesome photos, that looks like such a fun event. I always wanted to see if Eko would dock dive, but I have a feeling he might be more inclined to doggie paddle with you!

  32. dougalldog says:

    Looks like you had a great time!

  33. Still think your dad should have gone in lol 😉
