Dock Diving

Where did dock diving come from? I'm sure I can look it up on a webpage out in internet space, but I wonder who thought a dog jumping into the water should be a sport. I absolutely love watching it on TV, its something about those big goofy labs jumping into the water after their favorite toy that puts a smile on my face.

While we were driving this morning, my friend brought up the horses that used to dive into the pools in Atlantic City, and I am certain this is where the idea for dock diving came from no matter what anyone says. Take a look at this:

From diving off board in the 1920s....

To diving off docks in 2010..

What do you think?


  1. Did those horses survive? That looks like a steep drop.

    I do love to watch dock diving, though!

  2. In all the years horse diving was going on, not one horse got hurt!

  3. Woof! Woof! Wish I could participate ... LOVE to Jump into the water. Cool! Thanks for sharing the photos. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. I love to watch dock diving! As the owner of two labs I know how much they adore the water and lugging things out of said water!

  5. wow! that looks a bit scary to me!

    Love, Bella.
