Our buddy Dustin was a Surf Dog. We tried Stetson as a Surf Dog, but he was more of a Wave Runner (he ran away from the waves) then a Surf Dog. We just recently found out that we are proud friends of a nationally famous surf dog…our buddy Nadia.
Nadia is a career changed guide dog puppy just like Stetson and Derby. She’s been looking for exactly what career best suits her. Her latest adventures are braving the big waves in the ocean as a surfing dog. Just a few days ago we found out she was famous and appeared on national TV. Yay Nadia!
Here’s the video of Nadia on the Today Show (Nadia is the only yellow lab in the video at about 1:10 mark of the clip):
SurfinPaws – Surfing for Your Dog
Right around the corner is the SurfinPaws Dog Jam at Dog Beach in Huntington Beach, California. I heard that Nadia is going to compete and hopefully she does well. Here’s the SurfinPaws info:
What: Surfin Paws Dog Jam
When: July 11th, 2009: 9am – 4pm
Where: Dog Beach, Goldenwest/PCH, Huntington Beach, CA
All dogs and levels are welcome. You need to register for the contest at the website listed above. After the auction there’s an auction at the Hilton in Huntington Beach from 7:30pm – 10pm. All profits got the OC SPCA.
I’m not sure if we’ll be there, but if you have a surfing’ dog who likes to compete on the big waves (or little ones) then head on over to the Dog Beach in Huntington on July 11th.
