The Golden Poodle Award goes to the Wichita, Kansas Fire Department for all the time, equipment, and manpower they used to save Taz, a dog caught under a concrete embankment with the water rising.
No doubt they will be criticized for wasting taxpayer money on just a dog.
But they know that what is important in life… is Life.
They have done a lot of good work in the world of dogs and they feel they have a legal right to Patrick. But Patrick is not property. After his horrendous treatment he deserves to be left with the people who saved his life and continue to love him.
A message to AHS: your continued insistance on custody has alienated the mayor, the judges in court cases, and the public. Whether true or not, our perception is that you want to use Patrick for fundraising. This is not the image you should be projecting.
Patrick was never your property. You were an ambulance service. Move on.
The Neanderthal Award goes to Nestle Purina whose Waggin' Train treats made from chicken jerky from China have been blamed for more that 600 dogs getting sick or dying for the past two years.
And yet the treats keep appearing on the shelves of almost every store that sells dog products.
Purina is a trusted brand going back to the 18th century. They have made $$$billions selling dog products. We expect more from them.
