SUP for a Pup!

Standup Paddling (SUP) has quite a following, even among dogs!  Who knew? It appears to be a hybrid between surfing and calm water kayaking, but I can't say I have tried it myself.  Standup Paddle Magazine sure knows that their readers enjoy sharing their activities with their dogs.  They host and annual SUP for a Pup benefit for animals in need. Donations go to A Wish for Animals, a volunteer run rescue in the Southern California area.  To raise awareness this year, Standup Paddle Magazine is hosting a photo contest.  Click here to check out the submissions and vote for your favorite (top dog wins a cool life vest).  It looks like a fun activity for dogs of all shapes and sizes, and it is for a good cause.

Wags to my favorite four legged surfing dog, Surf Dog Ricochet, for the tip.  She asks that we vote for picture #1 because the woman pictured is very active in the adaptive surfing community-an activity very close to Ricki's heart.
