Chesapeake DockDogs Participants
2007 Bassmaster Elite Series
Smith Mountain Lake VA

Smith Mountain Lake - June 8-10, 2007.  Wow!  What an OUTSTANDING venue for an event.  The lake was absolutely beautiful and if you got hot in the 90 degree and higher temperatures, you and your dog could take a dip to cool off.  We had a record number of our club members attending a National Event.  Ten members attended and a total of twelve teams competed.  Also, a "STAR" was discovered in our midst.  Lil' Miss Daisy Lou made the front page of the Roanoke Times with an "above the fold" picture!  Daisy Lou made her name known again with her THIRD freedom run and this time she took Thunder with her.  After escaping from the car before the first wave even started, they were finally cornered on the dock and caught - all without a swim.

The two BIG labs, Buddy and Thunder battled it out for First Place in Cadet EV.  Buddy hit 5' 4", his new personal best, easily but struggled (and missed) at 5' 6" and conceeded to Thunder's knockdown of 5' 6".  Both big labs are looking forward to the next yellow and black EV challenge at Codorus against some really big jumping dogs.

Scott Whiteley & Finley earned their Elite Title and are only TWO jumps away from their Super Elite Title.  Sharon Rodgers & Thunder earned their Master National Title, Kelley Hall & Caliber earned their Senior National Title, and James Linde & Tasha earned their Junior National Title.

Chesapeake had three teams in the Pro Finals which included the Winner - Scott Whiteley & Finley who triumphed over some big, Elite jumping dogs.  Sharon & Thunder finished in 9th Place and Peggy Toms & Kai finished 12th.  In the Amateur Finals we had five teams competing out of twelve.  Terri Keiffer & Scram finished in 4th Place, Brandy Fowler & Buddy in 5th Place, Brian Rutledge & Mishka in 6th Place, Terry Moore & Sandy in 8th Place, and Kelley & Caliber in 12th Place.  Congratulations to everyone!

More new National Personal Bests were earned by our members.  Brian & Mishka jumped 20' 1", Terri & Scram jumped 18' 11", and Kelley & Caliber jumped 17' 3".  It's great to see dogs fly, as hard work pays off.  Congratulations to everyone who competed and we hope to see you all at the next event.
