HOUSTON – Surf dogs put their best paw forward in the sixth annual Ohana Surf Dog event Saturday in Galveston. The event had something exciting for everyone, especially the dogs.

Dogs of all breeds and sizes eagerly jumped in the water to cool off, hang ten and have fun doing it. Whether they rode the wave to shore forwards, backwards or lying down, these surf dogs showed their unique talents.
