Pets in the Park: Newark, DE

Back in June 2018, we attended Pets in the Park at Glasgow Park in Newark, DE.

Team Coach: Limoncello

Limoncello did some strategic planning before the event on the camper…

…and also took a nice swim to cool off at the event:

Whiskey (aka Wish)

Whiskey was still our foster dog, “Wish,” at the time of this event.  She took her first dip in a DockDogs pool with Dad’s help too!

 

Liver Killer Bling!

Keystone DockDogs at SteelStacks; Bethlehem, PA

We were not scheduled to go to this event because the weather was forecasted to be awful.  However, when we saw the weather took a turn for the better, we quickly packed everyone up in the camper and headed out to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania!

This was our first dock diving event of 2018 – and Whiskey’s first camping trip as well as her first dock diving event.

(Whiskey was still “Wish” our foster dog!)

SteelStacks has been one of our favorite venues! We have also attended this competition in 2016 and 2017 .

Although we arrived too late to compete on the first day, we were able to secure some jumps on Sunday.

Limoncello

This was our first competition since Limoncello’s retirement.  Although it was very emotional for us, Cello was quite content with her new “Team Coach” role.  She is allowed to jump into the water leisurely, so at each event in between competitions, we will allow her to take a quick swim.

Margarita:  Team Cheerleader

Margarita enjoyed people watching and receiving tons of attention from all of her DockDogs family.

Whiskey (then “Wish” our foster dog)

Whiskey, who we took in as a foster in May 2018, was still with us because she had been put on “medical hold” due to several health issues.  Not only did she ride in the camper nicely, she was very well-behaved, even with the abundance people and dogs at the event.

Overall, we had a wonderful time kicking off the start of our 2018 Dock Diving Season!
