On March 29, 2014 an Italian Greyhound defied the odds after a stroke. His life changed forever in an instant. One minute Ricochet was running around with his canine housemates in the yard, “ricocheting” off anything he could find to jump on, and the next minute he was lying on his side, unable to move and gasping for air. Ricochet had a type of stroke called Fibrocartilaginous Embolism (FCE).
