When I heard about Murdy the Dawg I assumed it would be like one of those surfing dogs who is balanced on a board and then pushed along by its overenthusiastic owner.

But this little guy is his own animal and he takes that shit to the next level. Not only does he pull some gnarly tricks, but I would actually go as far to say that he is better than some people. No joke, he manages a couple of grinds and even a rock-to-fakie. Yeah, they might sound like the basics of skateboarding, but this is a dog remember.
Thanks to his mad skills, and the fact that he is coached by owner/homie Baker and Shake Junt filmer, Beagle, this little furry fiend has become a bit of a superstar in the skate world. Plus he’s just so damn cute. Check it out:
What an absolute G – he’s even got the homie fist pump down. You can tell by the wagging tail that he’s absolutely loving it as well.
Seriously though, fuck teaching a dog to sit and roll over or whatever. Let’s get more pets onto skateboarding. It would make things for them and us a hell of a lot more interesting. Crufts, take note.
