Team Tiva, Team Gaea, Team Remington, Team Abbey & Penny, Team Tinka, Team Katy & Sir, JJ's Pack HOWIE! and so many others... Dega thanks you from the bottom of her heart for you love and spirit. She goes home so lucky & happy.
As the famous words were once again heard on the mirco today....."A Tired Dog is a Good Dog"....Great to see Beck, MisMatches & Greg, we've missed you.
We sure missed our twin Chloe but we know Dave, Erin, Katy & Ginger were there in spirit.
All of you are really wonderful people and we are thankful to still be a part of it.

Ms. Talla Dega - We saw you last weekend in San Jose and were so impressed! What a dog!
Sounds like everyone had a great time in Auburn. So wish we could have come. We're so bummed! So great to see so many familiar names that did so well in the event - all our friends. Geez, maybe we have to go to Reno...
Congrats to all the teams in Auburn!
(Diane & Nicky - working on breaking 11 feet!)

WELL SAID! Yes this was a great event! Thank you to Tony, Urs, Alli and all the Splash Dogs crew. It was an awesome event. You guys did so good, especially with the heat! But of course I'm sure all those margaritias didn't really help... The jumps at the event (especially with the heat) were awesome! congrats to Primo and crew for breaking the record! Also thanks to Sandra and Jim for all the great work you did putting on the event and as always the tennis ball jump was entertaining! (and we got the piggy out of it)

I want to echo Gianna's statements especially re: Jim and Sandra. Thank you for hosting a great, worthwhile event. Next time can you do something about the weather. Tony, Urs, and crew did a great job. Teva must have been a really good dog because she was a very, very tired girl on the way home. Unfortunately we had a slight delay on the way home as we blew a tire on the 5th wheel. After about 30 minutes we were back in the race. I hope everyone else made it home safely. It's always good to see old friends and meet new ones. Until next time.

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR MAKING THE 2009 JUMP IN MEMORY OF CASH A SUCCESS!!!
A special thanks to Jeff V and Cathy for staying on site all weekend as security and volunteering in several positions. Also JJ - thank you so much for the help in registration and for running the TBall jump! And newcomer to the registration table, Lucia and of course the SD crew!! We had two new crew members with us this time, Brock and Brian. And a special thanks to Greg Abner for taking over the mic, as I was a bit sick on Sunday w/the heat. I too missed THE VOICE! and Becky my dear I didn't get a sec to meet the bfriend - I'm sorry!
Natalie - I dont think the Margarittas hurt us but that shot of tequilla turned my stomach upside down!!! Should have went w/the lemon drop!!!LOL Stacie, we missed you table side on Saturday night - I was sitting in the corner of two long sections of tables and could see a row of pitchers of margaritta's in both directions! HEAVEN!
It was a HOT weekend not only temp wise but competition wise! The dogs showed some signs of heat intolerance, but it looked like everyone had a great time! I love my Tennis Ball raffle prizes!
Jim and Sandra - thank you so much for hosting this event, it was an honor to be part of the 5th annual Jump in Memory of Cash!
Oh - by the way - did anyone get pics of my silly Sniper swimming? I'm dyeing to see them - I'm a very proud Mommy!

Geez I guess I need to get up at 4am to post a reply, now it looks like I am the last (but not least I hope) to say Tinka, Joe, Jim and I all had a great time too! Well Zoey & Bitty Bella said to throw out "hi" to the few friends they met this weekend. Oops, I wasn't done yet... Jeff and Kathy next year we will definitely get together on the bbq-ing, or anything-ing.
Stacie, Urs,I am going to buy a really cool blender for the motorhome (need I say more). Thanks to all the friends helping with my shade's, putting up and taking down.
Dave, I told Tinka what you said and she went out and kicked all the butt's of the big boys that she could. She said that was for you and Chloe and Katy!!

What a great event! I echo all the thanks to those who put so much work into making this a special memorial/fundraiser dock dive. It was a beautiful location (what a contrast for those of us who had been in the asphalt jungle of the SJ Flea Market the weekend before). Hannah & I also got to enjoy some short (due to the heat!) walks on the lupine-lined paths between jumps -- spectacular scenery (photo below)!
In addition to Howie/MaxDog, we had another pro photographer at the event. For those who didn't pick up his brochure, here's the info I got from Bruce Beals:

To order photos, all you do is e-mail Bruce with jpeg #'s, sizes and quantity and an address to send them to. Hi-res CD's can be purchased as well for $5.00 a photo. Then all you need to do is send a check to Bruce.
Gianna & Ms Talla Dega ... It was great seeing you both again, and Tonka & I are looking forward to seeing soon.
Even though Tonka & I were only there fri & sat, it was a blast! Tonka & I loved seeing all the wonderful splash dog 'family'!! There is always warm welcomes, and friendly hellos at the events.
Urs, it was good seeing you too, I felt bad by not making it to the SJ event.
and btw Urs why do I always miss the margaritias? ? man o man ...
