The aroma of wet fur, salty air and an occasional shout of "cowabunga, dog!" will point the way to the 3rd Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon on Sept. 7 at Dog Beach in Del Mar.
In addition to the four-pawed surfers, prizes will also be awarded for human surfers with the longest wave, best trick and gnarliest wipe-out.
The event will benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Prizes will be awarded for surfers who raise the most money. The grand prize for the top fundraiser will be an all-expense paid surf trip for two to an exotic destination.
In preparation of the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, Pat Webber and San Diego Surfing Academy will join HWAC, pro surfer Guy Takayama and Rob Kuty from San Diego Pet Training to teach Doggie Surf Clinics at 10 and 11 a.m. Aug. 23 in Del Mar...

In fact, their wings are so agile that most hummingbirds can go as fast as 15-80 wing flaps per second. The other talent is their ability to perceive colors that are well outside the visible range of human beings...
