Cello’s first National dock diving event was held this past weekend at the Celebrate Fairfax Festival in Fairfax, VA. Celebrate Fairfax is Northern Virginia’s largest community-wide celebration. The festival was held at the 25 acre Fairfax County Government Center.
It was a great event! Lots of people we have met over the past year were also in attendance, and we had a blast hanging out together! Also, Cello jumped a NEW Personal Best of 23′ 2″ (YAY!!!) This jump placed her in the Pro Division Finals, jumping against some of the longest jumping dogs in DockDogs!!

We also got to hang out all weekend with Keystone DockDogs friends, Ryan and Lisa, and their dogs (Cello’s girlfriends), Millie and Addison. Addison may just be Cello’s new BFF! 😉

Girlfriend Millie FLEW off the dock this weekend, and impressed us all:

We saw so many other DockDogs members that we got to know at the last event, and other past events – and even met more people at this event. We have met so many nice people since we have been involved with this sport! We are really excited to see everyone at future events!
