More Good News!!!

We're going to Maine!!!!!!!! Daddy just told Mommy, Godiva & I that we're heading up to Maine for a weekend in June. Dock Dogs will be in Scarborough and we're going! I have to send Ms. Kate & the Davikas clan a little note seeing if they would be interested in meeting us there. I would love to see my littermate, Weatherbee. Daddy said he put me in 5 waves between Friday, Saturday & Sunday. If I feel like doing another, he said no problem. Of course you ask, "well what about Godiva?" Because I asked too. Daddy said he will sign Godiva up when she finally can jump off the dock. I nudged her ever so slightly during our family meeting that she has got to just do it this weekend at the Hudson Valley Dock Dogs Fun Jump. Mommy says I should post all the info for the eventful weekend in case anyone else wants to come join us.

HVDD First FUN JUMP of 2009 = TOMORROW!!

ROOF ROOF ROOF!!!! Lots of new stuff to talk about! I am sooooooo excited. Mommy started getting all the stuff ready to go for Hudson Valley Dock Dog Club and our own personal necessities. Mommy even made cookies last night for the the club to sell. They smelled oh so yummy. They're peanut butter dipped in doggy safe yogurt. I really hope there are some leftovers besides the broken one Mommy gave me last night. I've had a long talk with Godiva and I told her she needs to just jump! She'll love it. Godiva has all this energy, so there really is no reason for her hesitation. Mommy got a new car yesterday! It's bigger than her older one and it's shiny too. It looks just like this! I can't wait to go for a ride. Hopefully, Mommy will drive it to the pool tomorrow.

I almost forgot!!!

Mommy and Grandma figured out how to make me a new water vest last night!!!!! Mommy keeps washing my lightning vest and the silk screen image of the Dock Dog logo is coming off. So last night, she decided she could figure out how make Godiva and I our own water vest. So we went to Grandma's house to use her sewing machine and in about an hour, mommy had a pattern cut out and the main seam sewn. We didn't realize there is elastic in the arm holes so Mommy will get some elastic today and add the finishing touches tonight. It's bright pink but without the lightning bolts. I love it. Mommy is going to make a smaller pattern tonight for Godiva. Daddy has a friend, named Alex that makes T-shirts ( He's going to see if Alex will put the Team Pink Lightning logo on it along with our names. I'm so excited. No one will miss us in these vests! Mommy wants to make one for Team Ralphie too! Ralphie is a yellow lab I met at the Dutchess County Fair last year. His best color is red! Hopefully Ralphie and his family is at the pool on Saturday.

The Pool is Officially Open!!!

Hudson Valley Dock Dogs is open for the season. The pool is officially open today but Mommy & Daddy have to work. Tomorrow though, we'll be heading up there nice and early for a meeting with everyone and some practice time. The first club event is scheduled for Saturday, May 16. Mommy & Daddy have a lot of planning to do. I've been so antsy to start jumping again that Mommy & Daddy took me down to the river last weekend. Godiva came too so I could introduce her to the water. She's a bit of a chicken though. She goes in but the second I jump too far out......she runs straight to shore. I heard Mommy tell Daddy that he may have to go in to build her confidence up. We'll see on Saturday if Godiva wants to give it a try. My next task is to show Lyric, Bruno's brother, how to jump off the dock. I should give some kudos to Lyric. He's been working very hard these past few weeks in his field & hunt tests. He'll be starting the show ring very soon. He is a very handsome viszla. I'm sure his mommy wouldn't mind me posting his blog to show him off a bit. Lyric & Bruno's blog is I'm sure Mommy will take some pictures tomorrow. I'll be sure to post them soon.
