From service dog to SURFice dog

Surf dog Ricochet (Rip Curl Ricki's) inspirational journey from service dog training, to turning disappointment into a joyful new direction, to surfing with quadriplegic surfer, Patrick Ivison, to fundraising for charitable causes. She is currently leading a fundraiser for a six year old boy named Ian who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a horrific car accident that claimed the lives of his parents.

What a neat story. I have seen several service dogs and they ae amazing and are more than just an aid to their owners. They are companions and friends.

Now if we can just train cats.

Great Story. Nice to read something TRULY positive. The efforts of the trainer are astounding. A VERY special dog, as is 'FAITH' the 2 legged dog, and the myriad of other service animals.
