Loews Surf Dog Competition

Nani surfed in the Loews Surf Dog Competition on Saturday, June 20, 2009 in Imperial Beach, just south of San Diego. Over 60 dogs braved the cold, cloudy day with sloppy waves to raise money for the "Modest Needs Foundation" She didn’t win but we had a great time!

You can see a short video of her on You Tube at:

I uploaded some photos my son Matt took at the event on our Flickr site at:

She was wearing a Doggie Life Vest (safety first) that my sister modified with a wild fabric and ruffles, so it was clear she was a girl!

You can see a great slide show of the event at:

There were reporters and news crews from all over the world.

Gabi was interviewed by a news crew from a TV station in Berlin.

I was interviewed by a news crew from a TV station in Japan.

Nani was on the front page on the San Diego Union Tribune on Sunday Morning. You can see the article at:

Gabi's sister lives in Munich, Germany. Monday morning she e-mailed us a picture of Nani on a surfboard with 4 other dogs that appeared in the Munich newspaper.

If we lived in the mountains, she’d be pulling a cart, but alas…we live in southern California.

What’s a Berner to do? Why Surf of course!

She Loves it! She really does!
