Ricochet the SURFice Dog

This is the story of Ricochet, a champion surf dog.  She was raised to be a service dog, but found her true calling as a SURFice dog.  Ricochet is the only known dog in the world who surfs with special needs kids and people with disabilities as an assistive aid.

In this video, she surfs with quadriplegic surfer, Patrick Iveson.  She raised over $10,000 for Patrick, and has raised almost $150,000 for more than 150 human and animal causes.

Here is the link to her page.

While not nearly as impressive or inspiring as Ricochet's accomplishments, here's a 8 second video of our French Bulldog, Moxie learning to skateboard.  Who knows, with a little more training, maybe Moxie can start fundraising too!
