I get asked to MC a lot of different kind of events during the year, but the most unique...and really one of the most fun, is the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Contest. It's exactly what you think it is, a surf contest for dogs...and it's hilarious.
Sure, seeing all the dogs dressed in their surfing gear is pretty funny but the real kicker is seeing all the dog owners also dressed in their surfing gear while fussing over the pooches. And let me tell you, there were a lot of pooches out there this year. 65 to be exact...and that's just the dogs that surfed.
I first MC'd this event 2 years ago and I can't believe how much it has grown. This year the premiere of the movie "Marmaduke" was connected to it and the amount of media there to cover it was pretty staggering. Entertainment Tonight, Nickeloden, CBS Nightly News and just about every local news station there is in San Diego. All that buzz meant a lot of people on the beach and a lot fun in the sun.
I can't wait for next year.
