Surf Dogs

This past Saturday was a big event for doggie surfers. It was Loews annual surf dog competition in Imperial Beach and a few of my golden friends participated. Mom and dad went to watch and to cheer on my friends, the Golden SurFURS. While poor me stayed home.

Daddy took a zillion photos of dogs surfing while mom took some videos. Here are a few of the surfurs.

Have you seen five dogs surfing in one surf board? They placed second for the Tandem category.


Kalani won first place in the big dog category. She got the best prize. A bag made of paper. I would have shred that bag in no time.

We saw that on the news...or at least we saw a dog surfing competition held somewhere.

Maybe next year your leg will be fit enough for you to take part!

Too bad you weren't allowed to hang 8 but recovering is very important. We had heard about the surfing doggie competition and how cool that your humans actually got to see it!

Maybe you'll be able to whoop some surfin dog booty next year!

WOW those dogs really can surf! How COOL is that? I wish I could do that too but I think I would have problems balancing on that surf.
