Nothing Says Summer Like The World Dog Surfing Championships

I have to admit, I’m surprised not only that there are so many dogs that like to surf, but that there are enough for there to be a World Dog Surfing Championship. However, I’m incredibly happy to now know these things.

Last week, Linda Mar Beach in Northern California hosted the World Dog Surfing Championships where four legged, shaggy surfers and their human counterparts caught some waves while supporting dog-related nonprofits. But do the dogs really enjoy it? If these photos are any indication, you doggone bet they do! …I’m so sorry for that.
