July 4th & 5th - Chicagoland DockDogs

Dock Dogs everyone! FINALLY!!! Ruby was so excited that her first jump was her personal best of 12' 11''. She finished both her Novice and Junior Regional Jumper titles. She had two first place Novice jumps and one 4th place Junior jump. I believe she made the Novice Finals but we were doing agility on Sunday and we couldn't make it up there in time.

A very sad thing happened though, Ruby's good friend Bindi got attacked by a lab. The lab got away from it's owner and bit her in both back legs and her beautiful tail. She suffered some bruising and a puncture wound. She did manage to pull off two Junior qualifying jumps of 12' 3" and 10' 6" We are very proud of her and wish her a speedy recovery. Bindi's aunt is the famous Pico, who won the Dock Dogs World Championships last year. I am sure she will follow in Pico's footsteps.
