Chesapeake DockDogs Participants
2007 Delmarva Summer Blast
The Centre at Salisbury - July 6 - 8, 2007. Congratulations to the Delmarva DockDogs for their very successful, first event. It was a loads of fun with many big jumping dogs and even more new jumpers. The weather was hot, humid and in the 90's and the dogs were rushing to get into the water. We had a great Pro Final with the top three dogs, Chesapeake's Scott Whiteley & Finley, Suzanne Cannon & Gauge, and Tim Kline & Bella battling it out with Finley jumping 25' 6" for the win. Sharon Rodgers & Thunder finished in 6th Place and Brian Rutledge & Mishka finished in 9th Place. We have a new "STAR" in our midst. Thunder got his picture on the first page, above the fold of the Delmarva Daily Times on Saturday.
Mishka, the Russian Popsicle, had a great weekend. All his qualifying waves were Master Jumps and he continued that trend into the final. Thunder Boomed through all NINE waves starting the first one with a Senior Jump, jumping into the Master division for the next seven waves, and finally booming to an Elite Jump in the last wave. Both are sleeping peacefully the day after the event recovering after that marathon.
Katie Brinton & Reggie jumped to a new Personal Best of 21' 5" - only one inch behind her husband Nat's personal best. Tracy Williams and both her dogs got new Personal Bests - Brody 15' 8" and Tanner 10' 8". In the Senior Finals Jim Linde & Tasha (15' 11") and Tracy & Brody (15' 8") battled it out for 6th and 7th Place. Congratulations to everyone who competed and we hope to see you at the next event.
