Ricochet – just another healing dog!
This story has spread far and wide but, nonetheless, deserves a Post on Learning from Dogs because it is the essence of what dogs offer the world – unconditional love.
To gain the trust of a dog and enter the special relationship that humans have with dogs is to understand the significance of taking people at their face value and expect nothing in return, as dogs do.
Ricochet was born as a service dog and entered into the appropriate training. But there was a hic-cup in her learning, fortuitous as it happened and …. no, that’s enough from me. Watch it yourself ….
Now take a few minutes and understand what Ricochet and Ian McFarland demonstrated to the world.
and here’s Ricochet website.
and, well … just think what the world would be like if we all understood the power of love!

I’m a big fan of Ricochet. She’s a dog who’s taking care of so many people and pets in need!
I’ve just published her series of lessons on dog surfing, so other dogs can learn how to surf and enter surfing competitions. This way, more dogs will help people and pets in need. Take a look!
Thank you for posting about my work. It really helps raise awareness of my causes, and I appreciate it!
Here is the latest video of me & little Ian with the brain injury. He experienced a huge milestone in this video, during the session. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iIv5t2qKL4

I am honoured to be a very tiny part of promoting the truth about the power of dogs and what you are doing.
