What’s better than a day at the beach? A day at the beach with a dog, that’s what. And even better than that? A day at the beach with a dog as she discovers waves for the first time! It’s just so doggone cute and touching.

Charles and Alli Trippy have been recording their lives and posting clips on YouTube for the past four years without missing a day. They are the proud and loving furparents of two beautiful dogs, Zoey and Marley, who are, naturally, a part of their daily Internet video adventures.

In one such adventure, Charles and Alli take the dogs to the beach, where Marley encounters her first real waves. Surf’s up, pup!

Marley is at first apprehensive and not quite sure how to deal with the constantly moving water, but with the support and encouragement of Charles, he braves the waves and ends up paddling like a regular seadog.

We definitely echo Charles’ sentiment when he calls it a “proud moment.”

Just give it time, Marley — you’ll be hanging ten soon! After all, practice makes perfect.

Is your dog a beach bum or is he a little water-shy? Let us know in the comments.
