Many of our readers submitted awesome videos of their dogs and you can see the ones below (and on other pages, marked with red triangles) at vtsports.com. Our three favorites are below.
(1) Willa the Wonder Dog, Quechee
Willa the Wonder, is a three-year-old Golden Retriever from Quechee. As owner Daphne Moritz says, “Willa is my stalwart trail companion. She trail runs with me, mountain bikes, hikes for miles, but her greatest joy is diving into the water. I brought her to a lake where she unleashed pure joy. I watch Willa and try to learn from her grace and her unbridled love of life. Oh but if we mere humans can have one scintilla of a dog’s freedom. I’ve had other dogs. Willa truly does get best in show.” A video of Willa dock diving in action wins Best Video.
(2) Runner up: Lexi, Warren
Sandy Pollen lives in Massachusetts but spends every weekend at her house in Warren with black and yellow labs who love to hike, swim and, yes hit the slopes. And we mean that. If you never thought a dog could carve up corduroy, just watch this footage of Lexi at Sugarbush.
(3) Runner up: Luna, Rutland
Luna is an 8-year-old Goldendoodle from Rutland who loves swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking and hitting the slopes with her owner Jamie Wilson. But the video footage of Luna diving in the leaves was the footage we truly loved. — Lisa Lynn
