Doggy fun at Laishley Park

As a part of the Punta Gorda Barbecue Festival we had a dockdogs competition run by Sun Coast Dockdogs.  In these competitions, dogs run down an ‘dock’ and jumped into a four foot deep pool for distance.  It was open to a number of classes so there were large and small dogs competing.  Another event was a time to retrieve where the target was placed at the end of the pool and the dogs were timed.  I’m not sure who the winners were but,  boy, did everybody look like they were having fun.


The above were all taken with the D300 and 18-105mm Nikkor lens.


About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
