Vail, Colorado – Humans were not the only beings allowed to compete in the 2010 Teva Mountain Games.. For the dog lovers we present Dock Dogs Big Air WAVE. The object is simple, see how far the dogs can jump into the water. With the aid of a fake bird they were off. This event featured some amazing high flying dogs showing there stuff to a packed crowd of fans.

The dogs were in high spirits, letting out huge barks of joy and cries of excitement. They would become fixated on the fake bird and upon there owners call they would run down the ramp and leap into the air. Souring for a few seconds before slamming into the water below. The dogs looked like they could do this all day, truly in there element.

Dock Dogs took place in Golden Peak and it seemed every dog owner in the Vail valley came out with there four legged friends to watch. Also in Golden Peak was a village dedicated to dogs, offering food products, massage and much more. I even saw a cute little dog that reminded me of Sager!!
During our first camping trip together I had the bright idea of taking my new pup on a mountain bike ride through Red Rocks canyon in Utah. Not knowing any better we set off on a 10 mile loop across a fast single track trail over slick rock. As we neared the camp site after a good workout I noticed my puppy starting to limp. I jumped off my bike and was shocked to find the bottom of her paws warn off. The little girl just wanted to run and run and surely would have run herself into the ground had we gone longer. This was the first time I heard about dog boots and dog shoes, let alone dog boot reviews.
