Bio: My name is Ricochet... Ricki for short. I'm a surf dog, and this is my surfing "tail". Even though my name sounds like a boy... I'm a GIRL!! I'm two years old, and a golden retriever who enjoys catching waves, and hanging 20! I'm known on the doggie surf scene as "Rip Curl Ricki", and because I'm petite, and still kind of young, I also go by "The little surFUR girl". And... I'm called "The SURFice dog" too...
I have an inspirational video that went viral and has almost 2 million views. People say you need kleneex nearby to watch it! Here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGO DurRfVv4
I'm a multi faceted dog surfer that surfs for fun, has won several surf dog competitions, raised thousands and thousands of dollars for charitable causes, and inspired millions of people with my SURFice dog video,
I was born on January 25, 2008, and was the 9th puppy in a litter of 10. I was born, and raised as part of the Puppy Prodigies Neo-Natal & Early Learning Program with hopes of becoming a service dog for a person with a disability. But, they tell me I'm a little too interested in chasing birds, and other small animals. So, my career path changed, and instead of becoming a service dog, I became a SURFice dog! Now, I have a personal initiative called "Surfin' for Paws-abilities" which raises awareness, and funds for charitable causes.
