Very fun blog write-up on dock jumping... Quiz and friends!

My friend Jen, who is the KNBC reporter, wrote a very fun story about her dog's first-ever dock jumping experience last Friday! She also did a cute video with footage of her dog jumping, Quiz jumping, and of me telling the tale of how her dog escaped from the pen and stole a bonus jump while she was in the bathroom!

We're trying to get lots of blog entry hits for her on the days she writes about dogs (so that she can write more dog stuff!) so please take a peek and pass it along to a friend!

Thanks for viewing!

Stephanie,
Thanks for posting the link. The story was very entertaining and enjoyed the video as well. Looks like a lot of fun.

Woohoo! Super dog! Give that girl a cape!

Is that UKC jumping? I don't recognize the red banners.

Such a fun time for the dogs! LOVE IT!

She writes really well. Sounds like you guys had quite the adventure.

I wish dock diving happened more often around here... but then again there wouldn't be time for agility, obedience, and everything else...

Great article Stephanie. It was good for a laugh. I could picture Caue doing the same.

That was hilarious. I read it to my husband and we were both laughing, picturing Caleb doing the exact same thing.
