Surf Dog Ricochet's injury - turning it into something positive

Ricochet wanted me to send this email to all her friends...

I recently injured my wrist while chasing birds on the beach. I ran across a reef, lost my footing, and took the impact on my wrist, leaving a big gouge. I required surgery, and I'm doing fine, but on bed rest for another two weeks.

As I became frustrated with what I can't do while laid up, I soon realized it's nothing compared to dogs suffering from canine cancer. So, in the spirit of focusing on what I CAN do, I figured I CAN be helpful even on bed rest! Despite my activity restrictions while I'm recovering, I'll be virtually walking in the 2nd annual K9 Cancer Walk benefiting the Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign. Each day through April 24th, I'll be laying quietly at home, while my body virtually walks to raise awareness and funding for critical canine cancer research.

If you'd like to help me help the 1 in 4 dogs who are dying of cancer, or the many others who will get very, very sick from the effects, please go to this link for all the details CLICK HERE

If all my friends and followers donated just one dollar... we could raise thousands to fight this dreadful disease. Sadly, an estimated 50% of all dogs will die of this disease... but together we can make a difference!

If you'd like to honor a beloved dog who is dealing with cancer, or lost their battle, details are also on the link above. Please feel free to post the above website link, or pass this email to anyone who will find comfort in my efforts. I'm doing this for all dogs everywhere... and their families!

Thank you for your support!

Ricochet, the SURFice dog

This is the first time I have ever heard of this and will pass it on!

Hope you feel better really soon.
