The Golden Poodle award for October goes to Sami Stoner from Ohio and her running partner Chloe. Sami lost her eyesight in junior high school, but at 16 she is now running competitive cross country with her guide dog.
We have a three-way tie for the Lizard Brain award:
The first award goes to Virginia and Christine Cornell from Virginia who tied up the court system with a jury trial about dog poop.
Next is the first ever dog to win the award: Keej, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois police dog, jumped over a ledge off a five story parking facility. Fortunately he landed on the roof of a Kia and got only minor injuries.
Finally to the California legislators once again.
Fortunately good brakes and good people turned what might have been a tragedy into a beautiful story with a happy ending.
