Hooch was up on the dock when a gust of wind blew a banner off of the side of the pool, freaking him out completely .  It was a tough weekend, as Hooch had a difficult time gaining enough confidence on the dock to run and jump at his full speed.

This was Lager’s first attempt at EV.  Lager missed both times, but was very determined – we had no doubt that he will excel at this in the future!

None of the pups made the finals at this event – first time all season!!  There were some HUGE jumping dogs here!  We had a great weekend camping with friends, and enjoyed watching Lager have a blast on the dock at his first official event!

Cabela’s Presents DockDogs Wildcard Event, Triadelphia, WV

On the weekend of Hooch’s first birthday, The Liver Killers competed in a dock diving competition in Triadelphia, WV.  This competition was held at Cabela’s.  This was a very special event that we will never forget, because Limoncello won First Place in Warrior Iron Dog, and earned her invitation to the DockDogs World Championship!

We camped out in Cabela’s parking lot for this event, which was very convenient for our times in between jumps.

HOOCH

Hooch did very well this weekend, but wound up with a limp after his last jump.  We noticed this as we were lining up for Speed Retrieve.  Thank goodness Dr. Yurko of K.E.Y. Animal Hospital was there to evaluate Hooch.

 It seemed Hooch had a strained muscle, so we scratched him from the rest of the competition.  Here are his results from his Big Air waves:
