One morning in September 2011, a large crowd gathered at the shore in Huntington Beach, California. The people had come to watch dozens of surfers ride the rolling ocean waves. This wasn’t just any surfing competition, however—the surfers were dogs! With more than a thousand fans cheering the competitors on, an English bulldog named Sir Hollywood rode a long wave and was declared one of the winners. Surf dog competitions are fairly new, but dogs have been riding surfboards with their owners for fun since the 1920s. In Surf Dog Miracles, kids will meet the talented dogs that learn to balance on a surfboard, recover if they almost fall off the board, and even surf backward. Some surf dogs raise money for charity, while others can help people with disabilities ride a wave. Packed with real-life stories and full-color photos of these special animals, this book is sure to be a favorite of dog-lovers everywhere.

Surf Dog Miracles

The Dog Heroes series is up to a surprising two dozen titles now. The bigger surprise? They keep getting better. Surf Dog Miracles takes on a decidedly fuzzy topic—pooches capable of gnarly feats on a surfboard. It’s more heroic than it sounds: many of the competitions are for charity, and a few dogs have made it possible for disabled people to surf by counterbalancing their boards. Pretty miraculous, indeed. Photos are wonderful, text is clear, and closing fact and “Common Breeds” pages conclude.
