In terms of positive, emotional stories, it might be impossible to top this. Make-a-Wish Foundation hooked up Caleb Acosta, a 15-year-old from Apopka, Florida, with stage-four brain cancer with Richochet, the surfing dog, and took the two to the waves.

Caleb was diagnosed in the summer of 2013, and is an absolute trooper in dealing with the unfortunate hand he has been dealt. He saw Richochet in ESPN The Magazine, and told Make-a-Wish that his dream was to surf with the aquatic pooch.
