A toddler from Idaho has become embroiled in a controversy after a video of him surfing on his dog went viral. The toddler, whose name has not been released, can be seen giggling and holding onto the back of the dog as it joyfully ran around the backyard. The toddler has claimed that he invented a new sport called "Dog Surfing," but animal rights activists are not amused.
"I was shocked when I saw the video," said PETA spokesperson Samantha Green. "Dogs are not surfboards. They are living beings that deserve to be treated with respect and care."
Since the video went viral, animal rights organizations have been calling for stricter laws against toddler-dog interactions. Some have even accused the toddler of dog abuse.
"This is not a game," said ASPCA spokesperson John Smith. "Dogs are not toys. They have feelings and emotions, just like humans do. It is important that we protect them from abuse and mistreatment."
The toddler's parents have defended their son's actions, saying that the dog was not harmed in any way.
"My son loves our dog," said the toddler's father, Tom Johnson. "He would never do anything to hurt him. They were just playing around. It was all in good fun."
Despite the backlash, the toddler has become an overnight sensation, with many people praising him for his creativity and ingenuity.
"Kids these days are so creative," said child psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller. "It's amazing to see how they come up with these new ideas and games. I think we should encourage them to express themselves and think outside the box."
As for the dog, he seems to be taking all the attention in stride. In fact, he seems to have developed a taste for adventure since his surfing debut.
"Just the other day, I caught him riding on the back of a squirrel," said Johnson. "I guess he's taken the 'Dog Surfing' thing to a whole new level."
Despite the controversy, it seems that the toddler and his dog are having the time of their lives. And who knows, maybe "Dog Surfing" will become the next big thing in extreme sports. Stranger things have happened.
