They say that dogs tend to end up looking and acting like their owners... And so it seems.
A good example is Zoey, the Jack Russell Terrier that won the 1st prize surfing with his owners at the 2nd Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach, California (note the rised paw, balancing the group).
A brave dog riding the waves!
Another valid exmaple is my dog, Soy, also acting like his owners... (note the paw, replicating "daddy's" position and balancing the couch)
A brave dog riding the perils of too many pillows!
Soy definitively adheres to the household credo about sports!
