The 10th annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, presented by Blue Buffalo, took place Sunday, September 13th at Del Mar, San Diego. The Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon helped Helen Woodward Animal Center raise funds for the orphaned animals in their care.
Many of the surf dogs we met at 2015 Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition hit the waves again. The first surf dog we met was Coppertone.

those are some brave dogs – we wouldn’t get in the water even if you offered us a years worth of treats 🙂

What a fun time Sugar! I love that little dachshunds name – Coppertone. Perfect for a surfing beach dog and very cute dog too.
