    I love Blaze so much! He seems like such a fantastic dog. And I am a little jealous. I want a dock diving dog so bad!

    I drive 7 hours round trip for an hour of pool time. It's the closest place. Otherwise we practice at competitions, which has worked so far. haha. Closest competition is generally at least an hour and 30 minutes away.

    Blaze loves, loves the water. We went in the gate, I took his slip lead off, and he ran up the dock to the end near the water. The enjoyment, competitiveness, and his desire to go further and higher each time are what make this such a great sport for us! He loves it SO much, he's so happy when barreling down the dock. And the coolest thing, he was consistently jumping between 20-23ft at this practice, even though he was looking back at the toy each time because of my silly throws weren't long enough.

    After 30 minutes of swimming and jumping, this is the face I get:
