How Many Surf Dogs Can You Count On This Surfboard?
Dale Porter (KillerImage) ranks as one of the best action photographers in my opinion. Here are a couple of his photos taken today in Del Mar dog beach during the So Cal Surf Dogs practice session with famous surfer Scott Chandler. We are attempting to set a world record by having the highest number of dogs sharing one giant surfboard.
We did well today and the true test comes at the upcoming surf event on June 16 in Coronado. I share these photos taken by Dale that include my 9-year-old gutsy dog, Cleo who weighs maybe 12 pounds soaking wet! She is near the front of the board wearing the orange Purina Incredible Surf Dog life jacket. I affectionately refer to Cleo as my “$500 free dog” as I rescued her from the streets and she needed about that much in veterinary care to get her healthy. Every day, she reminds me not to sweat the small stuff and to embrace each day.
