Surfer is a giggly, silly, affectionate boy who loves everyone. Surfer was named for the silver superhero who can travel faster than the speed of light, was educated in the nature of the universe, wields the 'power cosmic'. Surfer shares a generous heart and the capability of great speed with his namesake, and perhaps he does understand the nature of the universe - he is a comic hero with an amazing ability to spread laughter and joy to everyone he meets.

Surfer lives with and is greatly loved by Linda Sinclair and Steve Tradewell in idyllic Napa, CA. Living a charmed life in the beautiful wine country, Surfer enjoys regular adventures in the vineyards with his family and going to the beach. We are proud to co-own this pretty boy with Linda and Steve and look forward to watching him mature.

Surfer has attended a couple of straight racing practices, and he shows great enthusiasm in watching the race meets. He has yet to figure out that the lure is more interesting than all of his new and yet unmet friends, both human and canine of various ages and breeds. He is captivated when watching, but then once he starts running he sees all of his friends and family and seems to wonder why not everyone is running with him and having a party. Surfer has his mother's joie de vivre and loves everyone. He is fortunate to have lots of friends to play with at home and at the park.

Surfer has done well at the couple of shows he has attended as a puppy, winning Reserve Winners Dog at his first Rarities show against a competitive group of older Silken males, followed a couple of weeks later by winning his puppy class in the 2008 Western Regional Specialty Show (Boofest). Linda and Steve very generously allowed me to show Surfer in this event.

Surfer earned his IABCA International Championship at 10 months old. He and his mom are taking handling classes and I expect we'll see lots more of them in the show ring. Surfer has a blast with everyone looking at he and his mom and they seem to be enjoying learning together.

Surfer is a big, goofy boy who readily shares his joy and love with everyone fortunate enough to meet him. I love to see his bright, smiling face at every opportunity, and it makes me smile to be greeted with such happy enthusiasm. We are very fortunate that he lives so close by with such a wonderful family so that we get to see him often.
