Surf dogs hang ten in California competition

With so much bad news for animals out there, we thought we'd turn our attention on this dreary day to sunny Southern California where the Left Coast's most talented canine surfers were catching waves in a dog-eat-dog competition to benefit a local animal shelter.

With so much bad news for animals out there, we thought we'd turn our attention on this dreary day to sunny Southern California where the Left Coast's most talented canine surfers were catching waves in a dog-eat-dog competition to benefit a local animal shelter.

About 80 pooches competed in the sixth annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon in Del Mar. The Washington Post reports that Buddy the Jack Russell Terrier was named “top dog,” taking home the first-place trophy for the fifth year running and a year's supply of food from sponsor Eukanuba. 

Watch as one feisty competitor, a terrier mix named Abbie, executes a gnarley little board bump, knocking a larger black Lab into the surf. We wonder, is that legal?

More pictures from this surfing contest and another water event on The Washington Post blog.
