Surf City Surf Dog Competition 2013

The fifth annual Surf City Surf Dog competition is quite a unique one—like its name suggests, this dog-only competition allows adorable pooches to catch a wave or two. Held at Huntington Beach in California last Sunday, these dogs could compete in different categories depending on their weight, and each of them was awarded with a “PAWticipation” medallion regardless of the outcome. Amusing and fun, this event turned out to be quite a memorable one for both the dogs and their owners.
