Jumping into Jersey at the Ocean County Decoy and Gunning Show: Tuckerton, NJ

This annual competition will always hold a special place in our hearts. Back in 2013, this was Limoncello’s very first DockDogs event!

I packed some fun gear to wear while jumping Whiskey and Hooch!

Margarita:  Team Cheerleader

Margarita cheered her siblings on, but in-between competition waves, she posed for pictures around the Tuckerton Seaport!

Whiskey

Whiskey decided yet again, just like at the Hebron Harvest Fair, she was done with jumping! She was still a crowd favorite with her antics up on the dock!

 

We had a wonderful time, as usual, at this event!

 

Liver Killer Bling

Wiskey Earns an Invitation to the 2018 DockDogs World Championships!

Whiskey (then still Wish our foster dog) earned her invitation to compete in the 2018 DockDogs World Championships!

(She earned this at a qualifier she jumped at before we had adopted her which is why her name on the invite is “WISHkey!”)

There had been no other English Pointers competing this year, so Whiskey also was ranked as the #1 DockDogs English Pointer! We are so proud of this little nugget!

Nelson’s Family Campground: East Hampton, CT

When we competed at the 2018 Hebron Harvest Fair, we camped at Nelson’s Family Campground.

We stayed on site T-48.

Although this site was directly across from the campground’s service center, it was a perfect site for us, as it had a very roomy grass area to walk the dogs.

 

This campground had a lot to offer!

  • Themed Weekends with Scheduled Activities
  • 60′ Swimming Pool
  • Snack Bar (limited hours)
  • Pool Tables
  • Horseshoes
  • Shuffleboard
  • Basketball courts
  • Volleyball court
  • Softball and Soccer Fields
  • Mini Golf
  • Fishing
  • Bingo
  • Cable TV
  • Pets Allowed (on leash)
  • Firewood & Ice Sales
  • Camp Store
  • Laundromat
  • On-site RV Sales & Service

Hebron Harvest Fair; Hebron, CT

Hebron Harvest Fair is another event that we hope to get to every year.  The venue is great, and the crowds are amazing!

Our team canopy – I miss our American Flag canopy and will be on a mission to find another for the 2019 Season!

Limoncello:  Team Coach

Limoncello enjoyed naps in the camper in between competition days!

The job of a coach is never done!

Margarita:  Team Cheerleader

Margarita walked around the fair and gave out her love to all the spectators.

Rita also enjoyed napping in the camper in between the competition days!

Whiskey

Whiskey decided she was done with jumping!

I could not get her off the dock the entire competition, so she had no scores for this event!

Despite the fact that our team didn’t do as well as we would have liked, our dogs – most importantly – had a blast doing what they love!

Sandy Beach RV and Camping Resort: Coontocook, NH

We camped here while attending the 2018 Hopkinton State Fair.

We stayed on site G9

We arrived much later than expected and it was SO dark that we missed a turn.  People at this campground were so nice  – before we knew it we had a whole crew of people helping us back up (NOT an easy thing to do where we ended up!) One of the campers even drove in their golf cart to lead us to our campsite. I don’t know what we would have done without their help that night!

There was plenty of space to walk the dogs.  All the campers were so excited to meet the “dock dogs!”

This was our first time staying at this campground – but we liked it so much that we already booked it for the 2019 Hopkinton Fair!
