Here's the black lab jumping and splashing and swimming collage that I had promised. I've been doing to much outside activity for the last week, so I'm behind with posts. Just got lots more uploaded to Flickr, so I should be able to get back in the groove real soon.
Here's some info about the dogs' competition. At the Oregon State Fair the most action I saw was at this platform and water tank set up for the 2013 NW K-9 Challenge National Championships. As best I can remember, what I got to see competing were some dogs in the Amateur Finals. I witnessed utter excitement on the part of each dog who jumped from the platform, swam across the tank, grabbed the target from where it hung just above the water, and then turned and swam back to a ramp where he or she walked up out of the tank, pausing for a good water-shedding shake or two.
