Tofino the Beach Dog

by Michelle Valade
(San Diego, CA, USA)

Tofino is a true California Dog, at the age of 3, he takes nothing as serious as he takes surfing the waves and catching his frisbee!


He will melt you with his eyes, spirit and smile, always the friendly dog and focused on his play.

Never a sad moment, he is calm, cool and collected. His spirit soars to hear the word "beach", launching for his frisbee and headed to the car.

He's a master at play on the beach and adores the ocean, he prances and dances at the smell of the ocean only miles away.

As a pup, he was found in a box with his litter mates behind a grocery store. I rescued him, although I think he rescued me and we have the ultimate human to pet bond. He was afraid of life and after dedication and time we trained each other through agility and obedience for three years.

He has mastered many tricks and jumps just short of 2" less than the world record.

Tofino is a fly dog, a beach dog, a silly dog and the best family dog.

I post this photo in honor of his long journey and thanking him for all the joy and pleasure he gives our family and hearts.

A day at the beach
by: Archie

I may be a bit biased as I'm his grandfather, but Tofino really is a fantastic dog and exudes the California Del Mar style.

Wonderful story
by: JuliaR

This is a wonderful, wonderful story! Tofino got a family and the owner got a devoted, loyal life-time friend. It’s evident that Tofino’s playful nature is also very powerful and fun. Terrific picture of the dog!
