I follow several dog related blogs and I just saw this one post with a video on dogs surfing in southern California. It’s hilarious. You can catch it at Dogs Surfing.
I do appreciate seeing the dogs wearing life jackets though. It shows that the owners care about the safety of their dogs too. This brings us to another point. Since we are approaching boating season and many people like to take their dogs on their boats, do the right thing and have your dog wear a life jacket. Even if your dog is a good swimmer, if you are caught in the middle of a lake and far from shore, it’s too long of a swim so at least the life jacket will help keep your beloved dog alive if he or she gets tired.
Apparently, this surfing in California was during an event that drew 65 dogs and about 2,000 people in attendance.
