At the Oregon State Fair the most action I saw was at this platform and water tank set up for the 2013 NW K-9 Challenge National Championships. As best I can remember, what I got to see competing were some dogs in the Amateur Finals. I  witnessed utter excitement on the part of each dog who jumped from the platform, swam across the tank, grabbed the target from where it hung just above the water, and then turned and swam back to a ramp where he or she walked up out of the tank, pausing for a good water-shedding shake or two. Come back tomorrow for a black dog, one of two who jumped late in the competition and both of whom are six months old.

Fun event to watch I bet.

I like your wheel from yesterday, too.

Fairs back here are loaded with tractor pulls. Too chilly now for 'water sports'.
