Sooz is a former laboratory test beagle who saved Alida’s life a few weeks after Alida lost her fiancé after a two year battle against terminal illness in 2008, when Sooz and Alida found each other at the Helen Woodward Animal Center. It was love at first sight! They have been a Mommy/Dogter team ever since! Alida has been surfing since 2001 and discovered SUP racing in 2013. Sooz just recently took up supping and surfing, and she’s a natural as well as proof that “Mature dogs CAN and WILL do new tricks!” AROOO!!!
