Lucy is going to Dock Diving practice tomorrow to see if she's got what it takes to be a Splash Dog.

This dog NEEDS to go to a home that will use her for agility. She is so freaking intelligent, super responsive and biddable, has drive like no other, and is FAST. FAST, FAST, FAST. Herding drive it there as well for those who want a mutli-use dog.

So Lucy had her practice Saturday morning! It went.. okay. She was very distracted by all of the other dogs, and I spaced and didn't bring proper toys. Plus the water was kind of cold. She went off the dock once, and seemed a little unsure after that. The trainer recommended starting on a lower dock, and building more drive for the water, so I think later this week we will be going to a lower dock and I will be going swimming with her a little.

I do think she has potential for this, though, with the time put in.

And now, pictures!

Lucy is consistently swimming now that it is warm! Going to try her off the dock again here really soon! Also looking to go to a Flyball practice coming up next month. Expect updates soon.

Someone here PLEASE adopt her before DH hides her away so she can never leave.

Brought her to work with me today at the daycare. She is doing awesome! A little nervous, which is to be expected, but she is getting along great with everyone and it is awesome socialization.

Someone (on chaz) please adopt her so I can have constant updates and I'm not adopting her two days after I move to AZ. That would be bad.

If you still have her in....December as a foster and I'm doing well there and have a generous landlord, I will make her my Christmas present. That's a huge if though .

IF that happens, you may occasionally see this:

Luce is still looking for a home. I'm planning on getting her into an agility foundations class, just for some extra exposure as well as intro to the equipment.

SHE NEEDS TO GO TO A SPORT HOME. CHAZ UNITE, let's find her that perfect place.

I was planning on taking her to a Flyball practice tomorrow, but with gas at $4.15, it's just not gonna happen. I don't see her being a dock diver without TONS of practice and slow exposure.

Now, pictures.
