Surfing? No Way

Mom was flipping through the L.A. Times and came across some pictures from the Surf City Dog Surfing Competition. She looked at the paper, looked at us and did a double take. Oh no we thought.

Nothing against water or surfing but come on mom, I am from Pittsburgh! Lily may be
into it being that she is a California girl. Mom, imagine the expense! Surfboards, life vests, goggles...a better choice would be bones, cheese, stuffies....I have a strange feeling mom is up to no good! Can you imagine!!

Well, any way friends we wanted to share a few pictures from the contest. Wish us luck we will remain on dry land!
Your friends, Benny & Lily

Even though he didn't compete, Pomeranian Bobby Gorgeous gives surfing a try.

  1. They really do that? That is just too darn funny. I wonder if dogs snow ski? That would be a good one!

  2. Oh dear. I hope they were enjoying themselves and that there were no sharks around. Glad you guys don't live on the beach. It looks dangerous.


  3. Cool! You'll never catch me surfing! I won't even get into the water!


  4. When we were on Nantucket on our vacation, they were giving surfing lessons! Maybe we should all sign up? It didn't look hard at all!

    Love ya lots
