A new relationship with animals, nature and each other.

Surfing Pooches Raise Big Bucks

Buddy was one of the remarkable pooches at the sixth annual Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon in Del Mar, California.

It’s all fun, but with the serious purpose of raising funds for the Helen Woodward Animal Center – a no-kill shelter, adoption center and clinic, outside of San Diego.

This year’s event raised more than $100,000 for the animals.

All the dogs were fantastic, but Abbie pulls off a totally awesome maneuver to take home the big prize. Check it out:

Not far away, in Huntington Beach, another event, Surf City Surf Dog event was also going on. Check out the great pics from both events at the Washington Post. And more about dog surfing at Abbie’s own website.
