The Splash Dog

Laddie and I are at the prestigious Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Classic in Utah.
Most of the time, when Laddie is at a sheepdog trial, he's there to work sheep, and he is here too.
But Laddie's second love is water retrieving.
Since Soldier Hollow has a Splash Dogs competition (to see which dog can jump the farthest into a pool after a toy) in addition to the sheepdog competition,  Laddie decided to have some fun between his runs.
Remember, we've never done this before...
The launch,
The flying leap,
Come up for air:
Swim for the toy:
And The Exit:
I think this is the real reason it's called Splash Dogs!

What a great fun thing to do on a hot day AND where there are sheep.
