Del Mar, California, September 7, 2008--Surf's up, pooch! A dog shakes after catching a wave in the small-dog heat at the third annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon hosted by the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

The surf dogs raise money to support the shelter by catching as many waves as they can in a half-hour session. Sponsors make a per-wave pledge. The event's champion won a trip to K-59, a surf spot in El Salvador.
