Surf Dog Ricochet will be surfing in the Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition this Sunday, July 13, 2014
She will be in the second, medium dog heat at 12:00pm, and then she'll be surfing in the tandem heat with Antonio from the K9 Kahuna's at 1:35pm. Ssssssh, we can't tell you what they're going to be dressed as, but they'll be in costumes so be sure to check them out!!
The contest benefits the San Diego Humane Society, which is near and dear to Ricochet's heart because she was a recipient of their Animal Compassion Award for an extraordinary human-animal bond and extending compassion to others in the community.
Ricochet typically places in the top three spots in surf dog contests, and won 1st place at this contest in 2012, and 2nd place with celebrity, Cameron Mathison in tandem.
Come be a (cheer)leader of the pack and cheer Ricochet on!! Hope to see you there!! Scroll down for schedule, directions and more.
Pro surfer, Taylor Knox is a judge this year. Ricochet had the honor of surfing with him in the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge several years ago. Paw-abunga!!
