Surfing Dog Grants Teen’s Make-A-Wish Request [Video]

Fifteen-year-old Caleb Acosta has stage-four brain and spinal cancer. When asked by the Make-A-Wish Foundation what he would like, his request was pretty specific – a day spent in California, surfing with Ricochet the surfing dog.

I came across this video on UpRoxx, and frankly, you may want to wait until later to watch it, especially if you don’t want your co-workers to see you sobbing at your desk.

This incredible surfing Golden Retriever is named Ricochet, and she’s a certified therapy dog who works with sick kids and recuperating veterans as what I guess you would call her day job. They even did a feature about her on SportsCenter, which is how Caleb found out about her in the first place.

“I just felt almost normal, finally,” Caleb says of his experience in the video. “It felt really good to be free, not worry about anything.” Who’s a good girl, Ricochet? You’re a good girl.
