Throwback Thursday: LA Canine Surfer Dude

Santa Monica Canine Surfer Dude

 

Dog at Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica

 

Before we moved to Carlsbad we used to visit our daughter, who was at USC in LA, several times a year, and a popular hangout was the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Lots of shopping, a variety of restaurants, and some terrific people watching incuding the many street performers made it a fun and entertaining place to visit for an afternoon.

 

The tradition of visiting the 3rd Street Promenade continued after we moved to Carlsbad, and when visiting our daughter in LA in 2007 we spied this Chihuahua all dressed up and ready to hang ten at the nearby beach in Santa Monica.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  - yep, Venice Beach is pretty great people watching, including Muscle Beach. The Santa Monica Pier is pretty interesting too, especially in the summer!

Hi Lottie Kendall  - ya think?!

Hi Nina Hollander   I bet he does, a mini board.

Karen Fiddler, Broker/Owner  - trap door?

Jill Sackler  - lots of surfers here, too. And we occasionally see dogs on boards. There are a couple of dog surfing competitions in San Diego.

Belinda Spillman - He does doesn't he?

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  - my first visit I think was in 1999. It's changed even since then.

Jeff, I am rarely without words.  When I see what some people do with their pets (clothing, strollers, etc.) it often renders me speechless.

Oh that poor little dog is probably suffering through the indignity of it all. Did you read about the pitbull that bit his owner, then her husband and her kid, and all 3 ended up in the hospital for trying to put a holiday sweater on the dog?

Jeff Dowler - A self respecting surfer dog needs to style in the right board shorts when in Santa Monica. The dude's got good 'tude too.

Oh how cute is that!

I can barely get Lucky to wear his collar let along a pair of shorts. I even tried to get him to wear a Broncos visor a few months ago for Halloween. He could barely stand it. I guess that's probably because he's really a Green Bay Packers fan.

People, and dog, watching can be lots of fun Beth Atalay 

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents  - no I didn't hear about that! I suppose pooches are more amenable to wearing the current fashions than others.
