I bet she is soooo happy!  She is such a great ambassador showing Tripawds can play too.

Can you explain a little about the rules for dock diving?   I do Nose Work with my little Tripawd but it is my first dog sport, I don't know anything about dock diving.

And for comparison how far was she going as a quad?

Thanks everyone!  Oh she was so happy to be back doing what she loves.  She had a blast today!  Hattie’s personal best with four legs is 23’!  She made me proud.  She is a warrior!

The “splashes” are every two hours.  She jumps three times and they take the best score out of the three jumps for your score for that splash.

That's so cool!

How is she doing today? Any signs that she's sore at all? I'm guessing not since she is already so fit, just curious since it was her first time back in competition.

It is soooo interesting learning all about dock diving.   Thank you and Hatteras for sharing the fun adventure with us😎   Truly a remarkably  happy  dog with so much zest for life.

That was so awesome to watch! I was glued to my chair! 16 feet is fantastic! Just curious, what is the footage she is trying to beat?

She is definitely a wonder lab, and is very much pulling at my heart strings!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Oh that's good to know she's not achy from all that fun. For her to get back to her old activities so soon after surgery is nothing short of amazing. She is a one-in-a-million Tripawd!

Thanks again everyone!  There really is no footage she is trying to beat.  Her personal best is 23' I think(with 4 legs).  There were some Malinois and Dutch Shepards out there jumping as far as 28'.   The standings are based on the class you jump in.  Hattie jumps in the masters class due to her previous personal best with 4 legs so she didn't even place on Sunday.  Good thing we aren't out there for ribbons, although we do have a few from her four legged dayssmiley4!  Its an all around good time, there are lots of good dog folks out there hanging out with easy ups setup and possibly even a few adult beverages!

Awww what a champ!

Dock diving sounds like a good time, what a fun activity to do together. Thanks for introducing us to the sport.
