Nani competed in the first annual SurfinPaws Dog Surfing Competition in Huntington Beach, California, on Saturday July 11. More than 40 dogs brave large waves with a really strong cross current to establish this year’s best surfing dog.
Nani won first place in the large dog division and the silver bowl as Grand Champion over all! Check out the video on the Orange County Register's website at:
Other San Diego dogs won as well. Toby (a Shih-Tzu)won second place in the small dog division. Abby G (an Australian Kelpie) won second place in the medium dog division. Dozer (an English Bulldog) won best wipeout! Stanley (a Chesapeake Bay Retriever) won for longest ride! All the San Diego Dogs performed much better than all the other dogs including Ricochet, Kalani and King (Golden Retrievers) as well as Guido and Kona.
