Without a doubt today was a dog highlight for me. Lina and I made a deal that if she won the breed I would take her back to the dock diving pool (little did she know she was going regardless). Lina has her priorities straight and she started the day winning Best of Breed handled beautifully by Deirdre Dunbar. Deirdre handed me the BOB ribbon and reminded me of my promise and said to be back at 2 pm for the group ..... so off we went to the pool.
Lina had 2 splashes today and they were both Master level jumps, thereby finishing her Master Dock Diving title in 5 straight master level jumps!! Lina didn't stop there as she went High in Trial yesterday and today & also garnered a HIT blue rosette for the whole weekend. Her longest jump was 23' (note I can't even jump 23")!! I am still in utter amazement that she jumped 23' in the air across a pool to catch a tennis ball making it look effortless in the process!!! Lina has dock dived a total of 3 different events, 2 last summer - one for NADD for the AKC DJ title and one fun event. This weekend was the first of 2015. She has has no training outside of those events. Debra the owner of NADD took a personal interest in Lina today and helped us get our 23' dive today with the promise that some training would get her in the "elite" category of divers. There are no words to describe the athleticism that radiates from Lina's body and soul and how proud I am to call her mine!!!
Lina then went back to the ring where Kimberly Pastella Calvacca showed her to a beautiful GROUP 4 under breed judge Judy Webb. (Congrats Deirdre for your Gr 1 with the GS). The Long Island Kennel Club asked to presented Lina with a trophy for her dock diving and shared a bit of her versatility with the audience. Truly a special day showing the versatility of our breed.
Lina is now Group Placing, Bronze GCH Hideaway ' N Windheim's Vintage Moonshine JH RN CGC RATN DM
I think this may be the best title yet!!! She certainly had a "splash" getting it!!!
PS - Cami and Meggie also had a blast at the pool. Maggie will follow in her mama's footsteps - she is too young, just shy of 6 months to have her jumps count, however she was jumping at the 7' mark already!! And Cami, well always the crowd entertainer no matter what she does.
PSS - Lina also won Select Bitch on Friday and Saturday, 3 GCH majors for the weekend!!

I decided to take the weekend and let Cami do some Barn Hunting for the first time, a new sport recognized by the AKC. Little did I know that right down the road GSP friends were enjoying another new AKC recognized sport - Dock Diving. So balancing a crazy insane schedule, the flexibility of everyone, Lina, Cami and I had a blast!!
As for results I couldn't be more excited. In the dock diving pool Lina bypasses Novice and earns her DJ (Junior) title in 5 straight dives!! She came close to the senior jumps every time!! AThe dogs had an amazing time. I am very grateful to so many people for their guidance and cheers! The folks at Westwind are the best and a fabulous facility.
Then down the road Cami Kisses had a blast, blazing through 3 straight qualifies to earn her Barn Hunting Novice title. Cami earned a first, and two forth place finishes. The best was when Cami has the fastest time out of about 120 runs - qualifying at just 14 seconds (you have 2 minutes). Only about 1/4 of the dogs passed and it's not as easy as it seems. She went so fast that the ring steward actually had to check with the judge on the time LOL.

Cami participated in 3 earthdog events - the first was Introduction to Quarry. This is just a pass/fail no legs achieved. Out of about 35 entrants, only 5 passed. Cami was one. Then we had a morning and afternoon test. In the morning 16 entrants, 5 passed and in the afternoon 14 entrants and only 3 passed and Cami clocked the fasted time to the prey - go Cami go!! 3 dogs achieved their ED title yesterday and I have to say I was beaming with pride on the Camster's performance and the beautiful finishing rosette I was given.
We head to Vermont and have a great weekend. LIna wins two Best of Breeds and Select. Good girl Lina.
