These are not just lap dogs!


SO COOL! Saw the 4th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Surf Competition held on June 20th at the Imperial Beach and noticed something shocking, the surfers are DOGS. This amazing dog event was sponsored by Loews Coronado Bay Resort’s Good Neighbor Council and was honored to organize and host this fun-filled dog surfing event as part of its Loews Loves Pets program.

Now, I thought that fetching a stick was difficult for my canine to complete, but this is great! The dogs surf and ride those waves and certainly do it in doggie style! I am not sure I could ride a wave like the winner of the small dog category, Buddy ~ a Jack Russell Terrier. There were many different levels, small dogs, and larger dogs, and up. They even had the pet owner and his/her pet category which Zoey, a Jack Russell Terrier, and his owners Scott and Tyler Chandler won!

These pet owners have brought their surfing, wave loving doggies from all over and competition is tough, not just to surf and win, but to look good while doing it, it's call great doggie fashion. I saw great dog bathing suits, canine sunglasses (called "doggles", not goggles) and bandanas!

I noticed the doggie life vests, the doggie bikini's, and of course, the doggie board shorts, which I like, because my Copper has this pair in blue! Of course, pooch bathing suits are a must when you are going to be in the water, and life jackets too, however if you are going to compete with other dogs, make ‘em look good for heaven’s sake!

What a great event, and all proceeds from the 4th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Surf Competition go to organizations that help prevent poverty before it happens. If you are feeling generous today, visit Modest Needs Foundation. This wonderful water activity dog event not only brought in 45,000 but also brought pet owners and communities together for a fun day with your pet!
