Out & About—12th Annual Surf Dog Surf-a-thon

Out & About

This past Sunday was the 12th Annual Surf Dog Surf-a-thon in Del Mar, California. Dogs at the beach never fail to bring a smile to my face. And after those two sucky songs in yesterday’s Music on Mondays, I think we need some smiles!

The Surf-a-thon takes place at Dog Beach in Del Mar, California.

Not all the dogs were there to surf. Some wanted to play fetch in the water, some wanted to get all wet, some wanted to get all sandy….

Of course, most were there to surf, some looking unsure of themselves, some looking quite relaxed….

There were five categories: small dog, medium dog, large dog, and extra large dog, as well as the freestyle category, which is always a lot of fun because you get dog tandems, dog trios, human/dog tandems, human/human/dog trios, and even an impostor this year.

My wise old grandmother told me that dogs quite often look like their owners. Who am I to argue?

      It was 7 years in before I ever heard of it. A couple of years ago I started subscribing to all the city email lists so I now get much better advanced information about what’s happening in all the cities in San Diego County.
