Have you heard of Surf dog Ricochet, the SURFice dog? If not, let me tell you a little bit about her. Taken from her Facebook page:
I help others by pawing it forward while raising funds & awareness for human/animal causes… over $200,000, and 1 million bowls of food so far! My page offers a respite from negativity. It’s full of kindness, inspiration, compassion, support, motivation, uplifting positive energy, empowerment & Fun! Sometimes you’ll be moved to tears, others to laughter. Please LIKE my page & join my pack!
I’m the only known dog in the world that surfs with kids with special needs, people with disabilities and wounded warriors as an assistive aid.
I promote kindness & treat everyone with love, respect, consideration, gentleness & grace. I’m an advocate for social responsibility, anti-bullying, and being true to yourself. I support, educate, empower & inspire kids who get bullied, feel isolated, misunderstood or confused. Tragically, many kids who bully are also mean and cruel to animals. So, I try reach kids before they mature into bullies, teaching them how to respect animals. I don’t work in rescue, but support those who do with my other page dedicated to rescues & animals in need http://on.fb.me/HCd4VZ.
I’m an ordinary dog with an extra-ordinary spirit. I comfort adults, kids, and wounded warriors with my heart… offering compassion, encouragement, support, hope and laughter through unspoken words. I bond with them instantly, and provide an outlet to feel connected, understood, and less isolated.
I accept, and love others unconditionally, and act as a role model to humans. I lead by example, and show them how to make a difference in the world, helping human/animal causes, embracing differences, celebrating individuality, turning negativity into something productive, and focusing on the CAN do’s in life..
I’m an internationally renowned, award winning surf dog who has become an inspirational phenomenon, philanthropic role model, internet sensation, fundraising marvel, community advocate, goodwill ambassador, and muse to millions!
I’m also a certified goal directed therapy dog with Pawsitive Teams, and work with active duty military members who were injured, have TBI’s or PTSD. I’m a registered animal assisted activities therapy dog with Therapy Dogs Inc, have my AKC therapy dog certification, THD, and a canine good citizen. I’m the ambassador for the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation’s ocean therapy program for marines at Camp Pendleton.
So, Surf dog Ricochet is on a huge mission right now and she wants your help!
