The Golden Poodle Award for November goes to the “Light from the Heavens” dogs, Hero and Diva, for reminding us—to paraphrase Shakespeare—that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy.
I’m borrowing “Bad Frosty” from my evil twin Skippy’s blog for the Lizard Brain Award. It goes to Kevin Michael Walsh, 52, who was dressed as Frosty the Snowman for a Christmas parade in Maryland.
He kicked at a police dog, assaulted two officers, and released a torrent of F-bombs as he was taken down to the ground and handcuffed, with children watching the action. Chances are they won’t be building snowmen for a while.
The Neanderthal Award goes to Tom Otterness, a world famous sculptor, who lost a $750,000 contract with the city of San Francisco when it was learned that when he was 25, he got a dog from the shelter, tied it to a fence and shot it. He filmed it and called the film loop “art.”
