Vader and Ryder Dock Diving practice in Hollister

That means you'll should always be having something to watch.  And some of these dogs are fun to watch.

And as you can see, I annotated what rounds that Vader will be having some dock diving competition fun in, which is on Saturday at 10am and 12pm.

Even if you don't head out there to catch Vader, if you're interested, this will be one of the closest Splash Dogs event to take place in the area, if you've ever been curious about how these work and how much fun they can be.

Here are a few more practice dive pics. (on Flickr.)

PS: If interested, they're also hosting Barn Hunt Trials at Doggone.  (It's not our bag of tea.  If it don't fly... )
