An update from our favourite aquatic canine!

Abbie the surfing (Brew)Dog

As far as sponsorship deals go, we're not really the type to go in for mega big name festival six-figure sums or touring with U2, but when something totally awesome and a little bit different lands in our laps, we are the first to get involved. That's what happened when Abbie the surfing dog got in touch a few years ago, and we thought it was high time she got a little exposure on our blog. So! Here's what our favourite aquatic canine has been up to for the past 12 months:


She has come out on top at the following events, which we really wish we had a season ticket to:

- 1st - Loews Dog Surf, Coronado, CA
- 2nd - Helen Woodward, San Diego, CA
- 1st - Surf City, Huntington Beach, CA
- 1st - Florida International Dog Surf (perfect score), Cocoa Beach, FL

She is...

- the first dog to surf and win competitions on BOTH U.S. coasts
- the most medalled and longest competing surfing dog at 6 years. And I think we all know what a competitive field this is!

She has...

- filmed a TV pilot episode with Former Ms California, in which Abbie teaches Ms California's dogs how to surf. I wonder how long @SimcoeBrewDog would manage to concentrate on that...
- Guinness World Record mentions
- Appearances in Ripley's Believe it or Not

And this year, she will be...

- participating in dog surfing competitions in Texas and Florida.
- planning to release dog aquatic equipment



What other awesomely niche and talented types should we sponsor? Are you a juggling hamster? A unicycling gorilla? A blind porcupine holding the world record for number of hops on a bouncy castle in under 1 minute? Bring forth your links and we'll consider each and every single one.
