She said "My dog surfs -- he's learning a bit at the moment but he's a bit of a giraffe. His legs go everywhere...It's good for sporty dogs -- it gets them off the couch -- and it's good for people too.
The day is free, but there will be voluntary donations to raise funds for the Guide Dogs for the Blind.”
The event will take place on September 18. For more information visit www.pypetreview.com.
