    So I woke up and it was rainy and gray. I was trying to think of something fun to do with my little one that would be weather-appropriate as well as cheap.

    My friend suggested visiting the local(ish) Cabela's. I'd heard it was cool but never went because I'm not into guns and hunting and it's just not my kinda scene. But he convinced me it would be cool so I checked it out and I'm glad I did.

    There was a dog organization there doing a jumping/retrieving competition. People were camped out all over and there were tons of dogs there. Some breeders as well, with their pups.

    I'd seen this on TV but never in person. It was so cool! Some of the dogs leapt up to 27 feet!

    There were a few mixes; a herder or two, but mostly Labs and Goldens.

    Cabella's are cool. I could spend all day and a fortune in their stores.

    We watched the dogs for a while. First was the distance competition, followed by speed retrieving, where they have to jump in, swim to the end of the pool for the target and bring it back as quickly as possible. But obviously the ones with the best leaps usually get the fastest times.

    Then we went inside where the animals were a little less lively...

    ...but they REALLY did a good job with the positioning, I think, and the scenery. Pretty convincing imitation of nature.

    He's quite the jumper. He could leap pretty far I bet. But he seems to hate water.

    I wonder if those fish are scared that they are going to be eaten.

    Just seems wrong to me to scare the bejesus outta real fish with a fake bear.

    I almost forgot! It was almost an hour ride, so I popped this little gem in the the tape deck that I'm not sure why my car has...

    You can use this as background music while you enjoy the pics.
