Surf dogs unleashed in Del Mar

More than $100,000 was raised recently during the sixth annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, according to the Helen Woodward Animal Center. The event, held at Dog Beach, is the largest surfing dog competition in the nation, attracting people and pets from around the world. Eighty dogs competed, but only one was named “top dog” — Surf Dog Buddy from Ventura.

The Surf-A-Thon featured a tribute to working dogs, including police, search and rescue and service dogs. Other activities included the Beach Bum Bikini Babe Canine Costume Contest and Doo the Dah, where people and pets in costume surf together.

Several celebrities were also on hand to help judge the canine costume contest, including Tyana Alvarado from NBC’s “The Apprentice,” Craig Silke from ABC’s “The Mole,” Dennis Luciani from NBC’s “Average Joe” and Gillian Larson from CBS’s “Survivor.” Photos: Jon Clark
