Surf Dog Wins Big


Ricochet, a famous surfing dog, took first place in the annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon last month, a fundraiser for the Helen Woodward Animal Center, a shelter in Del Mar, California.  Ricochet and his team also took first place for fundraising; he and his team presented the shelter with over $7300.  Known as the SURFice dog, Ricochet raises funds and awareness for a variety of animal and human causes, and often surfs with people of all ages who have disabilities, including wounded warriors.  To date, Ricochet and his team have raised over 200,000 dollars and 1 million bowls of food for pets in need.  See pictures and video of Richocet at
