  4. Boy, Bailie would be up for that challenge, but it's a bit too far away.

  5. We don't need to test our surf skills. We know right away we have none....bwahaahaa!

  6. I love the Lucy Pet Foundation. They do incredible work. ♥ I'd love to go watch the future stars in action but it is way too far for me. ☺

  7. That sure sounds like fun! No surfing dogs here but I bet it would be fun to watch!
