Surf Dogs

I had a great time with my kids this weekend! The highlight was the Surf Dog Competition! One of the best parts was seeing all the spectators.

And, yes, the dogs really do surf. They don't paddle out and jump up on their own, they have helpers. But they do ride the waves. It wasn't easy shooting the surfing pictures with my little camera, but here you go.

This guy's name was Newman.

There were two tandem teams. This girl was about 10 years old.

This was a Jack Russell Terrier with his dad and daughter team. When they fell off, the little dog just kept on surfing.

This is Tilman. He didn't surf, but he rides a skimboard (and skateboards and snowboards)! He has his own website. You have to go there and watch his videos!

Not much knitting to report. I'll be out in the studio the rest of the week to restock the shop.

I just recently found your blog and have enjoyed looking through it.

I've never heard of a surf dog competition before, your pictures of it are great.

Thanks Kris, I'm glad you liked it. I hope you went to Tillman's website and watched his videos! They made my day!

Delurking to say I recognize Tillman - he's on Greatest American Dog right now. I'm kinda hooked on the show.

Ok, your blog is officially in my favorites! I'll be back (sounding like Arnold Schwarzenegger ... like him better as actor than mayor).
