Ricochet the Surfing Dog Helps Surfers with Disabilities to Keep on Riding
And the winner is… RICOCHET! For inspiring a heart-to-heart connection with PTSD veterans, amputees and every special-needs child she meets, to help them gain more confidence, especially, to get in a pool or hit the tide on a surfboard, a brilliant therapy dog and surfing champion, eight-year-old Ricochet is recognized as a Superpower Dog, particularly for her intuitive nature. She is the beautiful Golden Retriever who, in a crowded room, can single out people who are feeling sick or anxious. She will make her way over to those people and instantly develop a rapport with them. Ricochet has comforted many children and adults to the point that their lives were transformed for the better. She is tireless and freshly unique. Kudos to her owner, Judy Fridono, and to Ricochet herself!
