San Diego Dog Reminds People to 'Paw it Forward'

San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders declared April 29 "Paw (Pay) it Forward Day." It was a day to remind San Diegans that it's the little random kindnesses in life that count and it was inspired by a dog whose life is dedicated to helping others. Ricochet, a two-year-old golden retriever, was a one-time service dog, but it wasn't really for her -- she was more interested in chasing birds than her training. Her owner, Judy Fridono, decided that rather than release her from service, she would teach her to surf.  Now Ricochet puts her surfing skills to use raising money for charitable causes.

Captain Died to Save Crew After Boating Accident

A San Diego mom was worried when her daughter told her she was going to join the crew of a fishing vessel headed to Alaska, but she felt her daughter would survive a wreck. The Seattle Times reports that she said when her daughter, Nicole Esau, told her of her plans, she had a vision of her in the open sea, floating on a pile of wood. That's exactly the scene Esau found herself in after a boating accident sank her ship Tuesday night in the Gulf of Alaska.
