Dogs hit the surf in southern California

Sixty-five dogs hit the surf Saturday at California’s Imperial Beach in the fifth annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition.

The event, which benefited the San Diego Police Department’s Canine Unit, drew an estimated 2,000 people, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Competitors ranged from a 5-lb. Pomeranian named Bobby Gorgeous, who came with his owner all the way from Hawaii to an 85-lb. Bernese mountain dog named Nani from Carmel Valley named Nani.

The dogs competed in three categories — small dogs, big dogs and tandem-style with humans.

George the Great Dane playing “Marmaduke” in the movie — and his human co-stars, Owen Wilson and George Lopez — also made an appearance.

The event got its start after Loews Coronado Bay Resort started offering surfing packages for dogs and their owners six years ago.

In the event — the video above is from last year’s contest — each dog has 10 minutes each dog to surf.

Could be Big Mama Thornton. She was the first to record it in 1952…. 3-4 years before Elvis. Great Song!
