A flooded street means staying inside for most people. Bo, on the other hand, finds navigating the waves as simple as bringing out his boogie board. Peter Rosen experimented with teaching his dog, Bo, to surf after a major storm left the streets of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, appearing like a riverbed. Rosen hoped Bo would remember his surfing talents when the street flooded again lately.
“We got out the board, and he remembered it right away and hopped right on,” Rosen told The Dodo. A neighbor, Rachel Frank, was trying to walk her dog through the flooded pavement when she noticed Rosen and Bo preparing to ride the waves. The pair were hanging ten up and down the street by the time she returned from her walk.
Frank told The Dodo, “I couldn’t stop giggling and recording.” “I had my dog with me, and he wanted to join in the fun.” Rosen attempted to teach Bo to surf in the ocean at first, but the modest south Florida waves were insufficient to push the board. Rosen quickly realized that the flooded streets would be a better match for Bo’s powers. He began by manually tugging Bo through the water to train him. Bo gradually regained his equilibrium. The electric bike was eventually added. “He’s got a lot of potentials,” Rosen remarked.
Bo, who was adopted three years ago after Rosen discovered him in the Cayman Islands, thinks anything that allows him to be closer to Rosen is a good idea. Rosen and his spouse were on vacation when they came across Bo, who had been abandoned by his previous owner. They took Bo on a hike around the island, and he fit in perfectly. Bo was adopted soon after, and their adventures have continued ever since.
Bo’s unique mode of transportation isn’t limited to surfing. He’s frequently seen in the sidecar of Rosen’s Vespa or traveling in a papoose as Rosen skateboards. “Anything I want to do, he’s enthusiastic about,” Rosen remarked. “All he wants to do is be with me.”
