Dogs star in south Fort Myers dock-jumping event


SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Dogs from across Florida leaped and splashed Sunday in the final day of the “Hogs and Air Dogs” event at Six Bends Harley Davidson.

The dogs put on a show in the three-day dock-jumping contest as they hopped into a pool from an elevated platform. Several owners took the plunge along with their pets.

The event raised money for the Gulf Coast Humane Society. A simultaneous rib cookoff served as a fundraiser for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Cadet and Explorer program, an educational initiative for teens interested in law enforcement careers.

Organizers said Sunday they didn’t have a count for the amount of money they’d raised.
