Yes, we're currently in the dog days of summer. What better way to honor this time of year than watching a bunch of dogs who are way cooler than you, surfing up a storm?
According to Discovery News, dogs who are healthy and have a natural affinity for the water, really do enjoy surfing. That's good news since apparently surfing with dogs has become a bit of a fad the world over. There are also several annual competitions, many of which raise money for organizations like the ASPCA.
Check out these clips of dogs "hanging 20" below and keep an eye out for our favorite, the board thief. He takes this competition very seriously.
