If you are an Internet animal purveyor you know of Tillman. He was a Renaissance pup of sorts – an English Bulldog who skated, surfed and even had an endorsement deal representing Natural Balance! Tillman even held, at one time, the Guinness World Record for “Fastest 100 m on a skateboard by a dog.” He crossed the rainbow bridge on October 28, 2015. Following a surfer tradition, lots of folks turned out for his paddle out at Kiddie Park Beach in Oxnard on Sunday. He is survived by his pet dad and owner, Ron Davis.
