I was the dog that nobody wanted to buy at the petstore during the Holidays, but I turned out to be the best Christmas present ever!I instantly became a therapy dog for a family member undergoing chemo and radiation and have found that I have a natural inclination to cheer people up wherever I go.I spent the first two years of my life in the Pacific Northwest, river and ocean swimming, rafting, and searching for fish along the shore. Swimming and log hopping at an early age has made me a natural for surfing...I wanted to become a therapy dog for children, but surfing makes a lot of people smile, raises money for good causes, and allows me to be super silly.Most of all, I enjoy saying hi to the people and other dogs at the competitions.I don't mind providing a good wipe out or two for the photographers either!
