Nik competed in dock diving for a few years. He set some records for small dogs, jumping about 15-20 feet on average. His form was terrible since he was never properly trained for the sport but his speed and enthusiasm carried him far out from the dock and made him a real crowd-pleaser. He still holds the record for Rat Terriers which he set with Splash Dogs in 2007.

Nik was obsessed with retrieving. Any size or style of ball or toy was great. Even a piece of paper would do. [fourth & fifth photos thanks Roseann Burrets-Baars]
