Splash puppy

"Aspen, a seven-year-old black lab, owned by Toby Heywood of Hooper, leaps for his toy in the Splash Dogs dock-jumping competition during the Dog Days doggy fair on Electric Park at Thanksgiving Point, Friday, June 4, 2010. The festival included several canine activities, events, entertainment, and vendors."

When I first got to Utah and realized I'd have to do a monthly story on anything I wanted, I chose splash dogs after seeing an ad in a mail flyer.

The only problem was that I couldn't really find anyone from our coverage area competing.

So when I got an assignment to shoot the Dog Days doggy fair and splash dogs I was excited.

Not only have I never seen the event, I love dogs.

The event made me want to get a dog out here. It was a lot of fun to shoot, despite it being difficult to get clean backgrounds with separation.

I shot one of these events earlier this year and was amazed at the distance some of those dogs covered. Some great expressions too!
