Nani won First Place in the second annual Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Surf Dog Competition held on Friday, June 11, 2010 at Dog Beach in Ocean Beach, in San Diego, California.
She was one of many SurFURs (Surf Dogs) who were invited to participate.
The waves were big and sloppy and the weather was cold and grey but in the end, the best Surf dogs prevailed!
Nani's best buddy Dozer (AKA 'Da Bull') an English Bulldog, took first place in the Small Dog Division. (Dozer's a small dog???)
Second place in the small dog division went to the best and oldest surf dog surfing today, Buddy!
In the Large Dog Division, first place went to our favorite Surfing Bernese Mountain Dog, Nani.
Second place went to Kalani a Golden Retriever and third place to her litter mate Ricochet!
In the Tandem Division, Buddy and Owner Bruce Hooker took first place.
Nani and the big old guy took second place. (This was only the third time we tried this and the first time in a competition. The surfboard was really to small for the tonnage placed upon it!)
Third place went to Dozer and Toby!
The event was filmed for airing in a couple of weeks on TV. We will post more details when we hear!
