Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Dock Diving In Hollister with Avalon's Furamily!

We're just going to jump right in (love those bad puns heheh) and start by woofing that there's nothing on earth we love more than swimming... well... wait! Nothing, that is... except maybe DOCK DIVING!!! And we had a ball on Saturday afternoon with two of Avalon's brothers and her Mom, Sport (who really is an athlete!) at Doggone Dirty Dock Diving!

You can rent the pool for a couple of hours and practice, although we just "practiced" having a blast, flying off the dock! And we did not want to stop our turns to give the other puppers a chance, either!

C'mon Mom... not fair!!!

MO-o0M! Pleeeeeeeeze can I gooooooo back in???!!!! Enjoy this slideshow below - biggify for funnest enjoyment!

Below is a FABULOUS "sequence" photo of Avalon by Don McKee of Topflight Photography - what a very cool image! Thank you so much Don, for sending this awesome photo sequence!

What fun!! We Scotties could never do that, but we think our sissy, Poison Ivy, might be able to - you should see her jump off our porch.

The video is wonderful. I watched dock diving and surfing dogs today on television. They might have jumped further, but not a one was as beautiful. What a fun time it must have been.
