To Jump or Not to Jump

All dogs can Jump. Yep, its true. 

So What constitutes a jump?
intransitive verb leave surface with both feet: to bend the knees and push the whole body quickly up off a surface or the ground
transitive verb get over something: to pass from one side of something to the other by jumping
"jump the fence"
transitive and intransitive verb jump as sporting skill: in various sports such as riding and skiing, to perform a movement in which the whole body leaves the ground to travel over something

Thanks to some of my friends, here is a short short video with one of many forms of Jumping.

Jump a log, a stick, a family member, a rock, an imaginary lake, what ever you want....Just Jump.....Jump.....Jump.

So lets get practicing. 
Your Olympic Venue can be found  By Clicking Here and you can join as many events as you want.

But for the JUMPING
You can start sending in your entry on July the 9th.
The deadline is midnight Mountain Standard Time on the 18th.

Although we would love to have video entries, we have decided that would take up too much time and space.  So Just pictures Please.

Sophie said...

Ha, jumping is what little terriers do best!

BordoggyTerrier said...

I might have entered had I not saw the master at work here! Gold for Bert! Go on son, look at him go - bless him! x

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

You know we are dachshunds and therefor... vertically challenged. How HIGH does the POLE JUMP have to be? I know that YOU can jump poles that are 87 inches high, butt I don't even think Ernie and I could go over somethingy more than 8 or 7 inches. Will that be OK?

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

So exciting!!! Can't wait to see all the jumping for joy pictures from everyone!!!

Catherine said...

That is some good jumping!

Love kitty's photo below ~ too cute!

GOOSE said...

Must one's mouth be gaping open like yours? Have you ever sucked up a bug while doing this. The second best thing you do Bert is jumping (the first of course is swimming.) As you know I am a pretty good jumper, I was even better in my younger days. Be assured I will be entering this event.

Keith Andrea said...

Hi Bert., seems that jumping is just an easy task for you to do...I wish I could jump too..

Stanley has been jumping a lot lately. He amazed our peeps when he leaps across the room. I do little jumps. But we all do jump! See you tomorrow and maybe we can jump together!

Your friends,

Great action photo! Pawsome! And the video was cool, too, but that photo rocks!

You are one of the best jumpers I have ever seen. :->

Cowspotdog said...

We vote 'to jump" it is sooooooooo much fun!

Unknown said...

Bert, I think your theme song should be JUMP by Kriss Kross. Just an idea. ;)

Happy seeing beautiful!

KB said...

Hmm, I like the intransitive verb kind of jumping. Our R spontaneously becomes airborne... not to jump over anything but just for joy. Maybe he'll be allowed to jump before the deadline :)

Love that photo of Bert.

Saw that you're having fires too. I hope that it's not as stressful as for us. I am now officially terrified of lightning.

I hardly leave responses, but I browsed a few of the responses on "To Jump or Not to Jump".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look like a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
Would you post a list of all of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
