It’s officially 2017 and what better way to ring in the New Year than surfing dogs in a parade, on a float, in Los Angeles. I’m not making this up y’all.

People went wild for Lucy Pet’s Gnarly Crankin’ K-9 Wavemaker Float. The Lucy Pet Foundation is a local nonprofit that aims to reduce pet overpopulation with spaying and neutering as well as adoptions. They also had a dachshund and a bulldog surfing on the same board so they’re basically the greatest humans on earth.
Not only is this the cutest float we’ve ever seen, it’s the longest, and heaviest. Literally. It won the Guinness Book of World Record for it. A contributing factor to the vastness of the float was the 90-foot, 8,000-gallon tank that allowed these dogs to hang ten on parade day. The float itself weighted 148,250 pounds. That’s kind of a big deal.
These coordinated super star dogs wore life jackets, surfed in a heated pool and were transported back to the beginning of the float by a cable car. How glamorous! Not only did they create the greatest float in the world, they found the most talented dogs. They searched far and wide to find the best surfer dogs in the United States.
And you thought your kid was special. Think again and take in the glory of these amazing dogs on this spectacular float. We hope the float shows up every year but until then, let’s all watch this on repeat.
