|One of Bells favorite activitys is to go
"swimming". I am not talking about being calm
and placid, swimming peacefully in the lake. I am
taking about BARKING your head off,
SCREAMING down the dock and BLASTING off
the end as crazily as possible. Thats what
"swimming" means to the red dog. And don't you
DARE say that word if you don't mean it. Or else
you will have a barking maniac.
Her first competition was at the Great Outdoor
Festival in Oshkosh in late summer 2004. She
had an absolute blast and jumped 16.06 as her
best jump. We were totally and completely
hooked! Since then we have attended almost
every competition that is within a 5 hour radius
going from Green Bay, to Owatonna MN, and
down to Yorkville Ill.
Bell likes to jump for her Dokken Dead Fowl
Trainers, her Tennis Ball and also in winter she
prefers a big ball like a deflated Basketball.
