Photos of Dogs That Can Surf Better Than You

Over the weekend, more than 50 surfing dogs attended the Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition that was held at Imperial Beach, CA. Surf Dogs who entered the competition were judged by professional surfer and pet parent, Taylor Knox. Proceeds of the event benefited San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.

I personally have never tried surfing, but it doesn't look easy! These fierce canine competitors make it look super simple though. Maybe it's because they have the advantage of having four legs? ;) 

Human + dog surfing at the same time = awesome.

Shelter Dogs Celebrate Birthdays for DOGust with a 1-800-PetMeds® Sweepstakes

Many pets who are adopted from a shelter have an unknown history, including the date of their birth. Dog parents with adopted shelter dogs will sometimes pick a date to celebrate their canine companion's birthday. Birthdays are special after all and every doggy likes to celebrate with extra love and treats.

Since most shelter dogs' actual birth dates are unknown, North Shore Animal League America created DOGust. August 1st has been known as DOGust since 2008. DOGust is a universal birthday for shelter and rescue dogs everywhere!

Shiner was not adopted from a shelter or rescue organization, but I still consider her a rescued dog. I found her tied up in an alley where she had been living when she was a puppy. She was living in the alley behind an apartment complex because her owners could not keep her in the apartments. We were also led to believe that she may have been used for dog fighting if I had not rescued her from that alley.

Pawsome Pet of the Week - Jada the Chorkie

Our Pawsome Pet of the Week today is sassy and super cute! Her name is Jada of The Chesnut Mutts and she is a 4 year old Chorkie girl. A Chorkie is a mix of Chihuahua and Yorkshire Terrier for anyone interested in knowing. Jada lives in Rome, Georgia with her family.

"I have moved a couple of times, but I am still in Rome, Georgia. I live with my Momma, Pop Pop, Grand Mama, Uncle, sister Bailey, three other dogs, two cats, two rats, two snails, and one fish. It is a very full house, but it is never boring!"
Sounds like plenty of people and pets to get attention (and treats!) from. So what makes Miss Jada such a Pawsome Pet? Here's how she answered the question:

Diva Cat

Sometimes when I'm picking up millions (OK, maybe that's a slight exageration.) of children's toys off the living room floor, I come across something I can't resist using in a photo with my pets. Today's victim photo subject is Callie. 

Callie is a good sport about wearing sunglasses. I think they show her inner diva!
