My Style of Surfing the Waves

From a distance Ron and I look mighty small.
He's checking out my latest hole wondering if I will ever reach the bottom.
With the full moon in full swing, the waves are developing very nicely.
How do you like the balancing act!
The water is relatively warm for this time of year in Atlantic Canada.
So that means I can stay in longer.
My lack of fear of big waves is obvious.
Peek-a-boo is one game I enjoyed as a puppy,
Once in awhile the moment pops up and triggers the old response....
"I see you".
I really love body surfing on the white waters.
I hold my own....
and just lift my head when the waves crash in front of me.
I whip around and head back out to retrieve another thrown ball,
sometimes swimming in faster than the wave behind me.
Someone's going to all wet...
'cos I just soaked up the Atlantic just like a sponge.
We go up the hill after my surfing session to sit and to watch the human surfers below.
Maybe next time I should try one of those boards that they use.
What do you think?


Today's photos brought to you by

Daddy Jim!


  1. Good morning Ron and Sophie!
    Start out slow with that surfboard idea, okay?
    Your Friend, m.
    p.s. Does Canada provide free seating on all its beaches? Great idea! m.

  2. You'd look great on a a board, Soph just like Scooby Doo!

  3. Aww if only I had your youthful exuberance, Sophie.. I would enjoy your you frolicking water play too.

    thanks for the romp!
    Crissy aka Snickerdoodle
    and Pam too

  4. I think that you could handle one of those boards just fine, Miss Sophie. You're certainly athletic enough, and, I've seen surfing dogs. Of course, if you start surfing, I want to see Daddies Ron and Jim in there, right beside you.

  5. Those left coast surfin' dogs have nuthin' on you, Sophie!

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  6. I hear Beach Boys surfin' music in the background!

  7. oh that last picture took my breath away--just like the atlantic ocean would do if i plunged into it like you sophie!

  8. Fun new header! Wow! And go get yourself one of those surfboards called a sponge (I think) -- easy for you to surf on, Sophie!
    Hang 20!

  9. If any dog could ride a board, it would be YOU, Sophie! I am always amazed that you never lose Mr. Orange!!

  10. You are smart enough, Sophie, I'll bet your Dads could teach you how to surf!

  11. You do a great job body surfin but a board may be an option at least to try

  12. I get spoooooked by the Full Moon Effect around here. But I'd not mind it, if I lived near the ocean! :-)

    Very cool new Header effect!


  13. Duuuude... You're like a natural, Dude!!

    Most impressive!

  14. I was going to ask if you'd ever tried a surf board! I think if any dog could do it, it would be you, Sophie. Although, I'm not sure surfing would be more fun than just jumping into the water! I love that shot of Mr. Orangie on the top of the wave!


  15. You don't need one of those boards. You're a fantastic body surfer. And a brave one.

    We like getting in still water--but not aggressive water.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & bella

  16. Aw Soph! These are FURBULOUS! Oscar likes to dig in the sand, too. But the waves? Forget it! He's a chicken-doodle! hehehe

  17. No question about it, Sophie! You'd ace surfing!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. You are an expert Surfer Girl. Cool.

  19. You don't need a board, Sophie. You're amazing! And, those photos are amazing, especially the one with your orange ball balanced on the crest of the wave!

    My Labs are SO jealous!

  20. I know you could surf on a board Sophie,, because you are brave, and strong, and entergetic,, and because you are SOPHIE!

  21. Quite the digger, you are.

    And surfing?! Amazing. My Pugsley only wants to bite the waves. Never works out for him so well. And hates the water in his face.

    But not Sophie. She's a natural.

  22. Looks like so much fun! Love the photos.

  23. And body surfing too. Is there anything you won't try?


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
