Surf’s Up!

Pretty incredible—this surfing duo love each other!

Last Updated:


Ricky, a rescue cat, won't surf without his friend Coppertone, a Miniature Dachshund, on the board. You read that right. This unlikely pair are stars of the upcoming Lucy Pet's Gnarly Crankin' K9 Wave Maker Tour ll, coming to a city near you!

Making twenty stops, including ones in Canada, Seattle, Denver, Phoenix, and San Antonio, Lucy Pet is hitting the road with the world's only mobile wave maker, a portable 75-foot tank filled with 5000 gallons of water that can produce a perfect wave every five seconds. But the amazing thing is this: cats and dogs are doing the surfing!

One of the amazing felines riding the waves is the aforementioned Lucy Pet mascot Ricky the Rescue Cat, who insists on riding with his friend, pro-surfing Miniature Dachshund, Coppertone. And it wouldn't be a surf sesh without Surfin' Jack, the sunglasses-wearing spokesdog for Lucy Pet Foundation, who will also be showing off her skills on the board.

While this spectacle is sure to raise your spirits, it will also raise awareness and funds for the Lucy Pet Foundation, whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of over 80,000 dogs and cats per week in the United States. "We thought we'd never be able to top last year's Gnarly Crankin' Wave Maker Tour," says Lucy Pet's Joey Herrick. "But I think we've done it! Never before have there been dogs doing tricks on moving surfboards, not to mention cats that can hang twenty with the best of them." Get in on the fun and find a stop near you at
