Listen-Speak by Bev Thompson

Listen – Speak
by Bev Thompson

I don’t listen to your words,
I listen to your speak vibrations.
Your imprinted voicebox, your tone,
your facial expressions, your body
language, your eyes.
Don’t turn your eyes away!
Look at me.
I interpret your silences.
I can hear everything you don’t say
with your lips perfectly spoken words.

I Am A Dog

Superpower Dogs

We are so excited about the upcoming IMAX movie, Superpower Dogs!

The World Premiere of Superpower Dogs, an inspiring true story of extraordinary dogs and their life-saving superpowers, opens on March 9th at the California Science Center. The following week on March 15th, the film opens worldwide at IMAX, giant screen and digital cinemas in museums, science centers and other cultural institutions worldwide. Theater listings can be found on the Superpower Dogs website.

Our friend Surf Dog Ricochet, a registered and certified goal-directed therapy dog is one of five dogs in the film. The other four include Henry, an avalanche rescue dog, Reef, a water rescue dog, Halo, a search and rescue dog and Tipper/Tony who sniff out poachers in South Africa. All these dogs rescue individuals in physical trauma. Ricochet, on the other paw, rescues people from emotional trauma, such as PTSD.

The film takes you on a journey around the globe with narrator, Chris Evans (Captain America) as he introduces you to these remarkable dogs. 3D cameras and computer graphics were utilized so audiences can experience the world through the eyes, ears, and nose of a dog.

10 years ago, Ricochet became the first-ever canine assisted surf therapy dog because she made an independent decision to jump on the surfboard of Patrick Ivison, a 14 year old boy who is quadriplegic (he makes a cameo in the film). Since then, she has surfed with hundreds and hundreds of kids with special needs, people with disabilities, wounded warriors & veterans with PTSD.

This is going to be an amazing film, we can’t wait to see it. To learn more about Ricochet and the work she is doing, visit her website. Watch the trailer below:
