Surfing Dog Event at Huntington Beach

The third annual Huntington Beach Surf City Surf Dog event took place last Sunday at the largest dog friendly beach in California!
Surfing contest winner, Abbie and her Dad, Michael

 This year’s event saw the return of champion surf dog, Abbie (an Australian Kelpie) who set a canine record for riding the longest wave.


This feat was witnessed by Frederikke (Freddie)Hoff, an official from the Guinness Book of Records flown in from NYC to witness the record achievement (a distance of 60 meters).

Huntington Beach was named the official DogTown 2009 by Dog Fancy magazine, as a city that "receives dogs with open arms and provide them with the joys of life."

        Well, I must agree.  Mom and I stayed once again at the fido fabulous Shorebreak Hotel-which hosted the Surf City Surf Dog event, including canine fashion show and costume contest. 

Manager, Marco Perry and the hotel staff go way beyond pet friendly, even letting canine guests order from the Pet menu and dine on the restaurant terrace.

Mom was really impressed by the cool decor (surfing theme) and the no pet deposit policy.
