Dock Jumper: Vancouver, BC

category: Dogs • 1 min read

Artie (I think that’s the way it’s spelled, but I didn’t ask for the exact spelling) loves to jump in the water and catch the rope. He carries his rope everywhere.

His favourite competition is the toss. It’s almost like a narrow swimming pool, His owner throws the rope to the middle of the pool and Artie has to run from the back of the dock/swimming pool, jump in the water and while jumping in the water, he has to catch the rope before he touches the water.

Artie is a mix of a Labrador, a Portuguese Water Dog and something else, but his owner’s not too sure, but look at these paws. Huge and webbed… You can compare them to his friend the Blue Healer.
