I've seen a surfing dog a couple times at our favorite surf break, White Plains Beach in Kalealoa. Ringo is a little five-pound mongrel (or purebred, I have no idea) whose owner Sonny has taught him to ride a stand-up paddleboard.

The little guy (Ringo, not Sonny) even wears goggles (brand name "Doggles"). His personal flotation device ("Outward Hound") is equipped with a dorsal handle. On the rare occasions that Sonny wipes out he picks up Ringo by his PFD handle and holds him overhead as they ditch. Then he (Sonny this time, not Ringo) gets everyone organized again on the board and paddles back out. The dog loves it... when they're surfing, he's running all over the board (and hanging 20). The board is even equipped with Ringo's own traction paw, I mean, pad.

I've kept quiet about this because we didn't have photos. However I was browsing SurfShooter the other day and found the dog!

I can't post the (copyrighted) photos, but here's the link to the directory:

Very cool dog! I've heard of a few surfing dogs around here, but never seen them. My Biscuit dog has an Outward Hound life jacket with that same handle, although hers is bright orange.

This is my ebony baby, Bismarck. He is 4 or 5, rescued from a shelter 3 years ago, after my beloved Dakota passed. I can't find a picture right now of my bengal, Tahoe, who is my 10-year old sweetie. Must be on my home computer...

Also, from my recent Nova Scotia trip, a moose and a puffin...

Bismark is a great name, by the way.
He's a lovely boy!

So sorry for your loss, robb, Rush looks like a lovely girl in her picture.

Played golf today and brought my buddy along. The good thing about him, he doesn't laugh when I hit a bad shot. Of course I have to give him a treat.

Our dog Sofi. The pic is about 3 years old...she's 12 now and her eyes are getting cloudy. I'll go through a box of tissues when she passes. She was my gift from my wife for graduating from MBA school. Her name was derived because I....

She has such a sweet face. I completely understand your earlier box of tissue comment.

Dave, is Sofi a Sheltie? If so, her face is a lot more winsome than any Sheltie I've ever seen!
