With googly eyes, slobbery lips and wet noses, dogs are the perfect match for water sports - and you can see the best of them this Sunday, September 13 at the 10th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon Dog Surfing Competition. Taking place on Del Mar Dog Beach, this fun family event is free to watch and starts at 8AM. See the area's bravest pooches balance on boards and defy the laws of gravity. You'll also find kid-friendly activities, refreshments, and lessons where you can learn to surf or stand-up paddle board with your dog. Best of all, the proceeds benefit rescue pet organizations in Southern California, including the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
