In 2011, Surf Dog Ricochet won an American Humane Association Hero Dog Award in the "Emerging Hero" category. It was the first year they had the Awards, and it was crazy pawesome!! She got to meet a bunch of celebrities, including the other "golden girl", Betty White!
The Awards were held at the Beverly Hills Hilton on October 1st. There were eight different categories of dogs that were celebrated. Each recipient received a $5000 donation to their designated charity, and a Hero Dog Award that was sculpted by Liza Todd, the daughter of Elizabeth Taylor.
Surf Dog Ricochet's award was presented by actor, Joey Lawrence.
