Surfing With Your Dog

Surfing to aid those who can’t walk. Judy Fridono, owner of Puppy Prodigies which trains therapy dogs, had nearly given up on Ricochet, a 15 month old golden retriever, who seemed not to be cut out to work with people. On a lark, Fridono entered her in a dog surfing contest; she came in third.[…]
