Who is top dog of the California waves?
About 50 animals wearing life jackets took part in the annual dog surfing competition in San Diego.
They were eager to follow their owners to the water and looked pretty confident and skilled at keeping their balance on the surfboards.
The owners guarantee that their pets are safe and enjoying the ride. At least this dog seems happy.
The event raises money for the San Diego Humane Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
(idiom) a dominant person in a group or in their field
something you wear to make you float if you fall into water
the ability to stay in the same position and not fall
