But the dock diving tryouts were fun. Dekka wanted to eat all the dogs at first. Then with some work at a distance she was fine (which is good as there were lots of loose dogs, they ran down the stairs to try to find another way in the pool) She jumped beautifully 5 times, and waited in line for her turn like a star. Then the fellow who is chosing dogs says the next couple will be the ones that 'count' and he hadn't been watching the first few. (he said that in the beggining, IMO to make people more relaxed when their dogs said NO WAY) It was a very stimulating environment, strange carts, and cranes and other vehicles as people were setting up booths, and tanks and all sorts of things. There was a guy on a crane haning a banner from the ceiling almost over top of the pool. Dekka was so cold she was just a bundle of vibrations. She ran up the stairs and crouched at the end of the dock (she has a very BC sort of crouch going on) I threw the stick and she looked like she really reallly wanted to jump in, but didn't. The fellow said give her a break and try again. I said I think she is cold. I warmed her up a bit and tried again. She said no. The guy was really nice. He said he was going to pick her for the show as there were looking for variety and she was small and cute and seemed very well behaved (not a complement often given to a JRT ) But that he needed dogs that would jump in EVERY time. The whole time were are talking Dekka is staring intently at the pool shaking very hard. I thanked him and said that I think she found it too cold for repeated jumps, but that we had a great time and learned lots. Dekka is still cold. I smuggled her into school, where I am now in one of the teacher's offices waiting for lab. (they said I can smuggle her up to lab so I can do my presentation) Sorry about the pics, forgot my camera.
