A Golden Poodle award goes to Jefferson Cox who stopped to help a dog running along the road and to the remarkable dog who led him back to a garage where her elderly owner had fallen and lay helpless on the floor.
A second Golden Poodle award goes to the medical staff at Duke University Medical Center and to J.J., a fluffy little dog who became an important part of their medical team by being allowed into the operating room.
It would seem there are some skills a dog can learn that even the most prestigious medical staff admit they lack.
The Lizard Brain award goes to Greenpeace, an environmental group that tried to frighten children with a despicable video featuring a creepy Santa telling them that the ice at the North Pole is melting and his home is rapidly disappearing.
However… the ice mass at both poles continues to grow.
This summer Arctic ice increased by 60% as shown in NASA satellite photos. Data from the National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC) show that last month the Arctic ice sheet covered nearly four million square miles, including the North Pole.
And Winter has barely begun.
Four million square miles seems like a lot of room for Santa, the elves and his reindeer to romp around in.
Greenpeace makes the Grinch look like the Easter Bunny.
A second Neanderthal award goes to the the ASCPA for trying to rain on our holiday parade with their guilt-inducing commercials which pretend that we can somehow help all those pathetic cats and dogs they show us by contributing to their bloated multi-million $$ bureaucracy.
Have a healthy and prosperous 2014 from all of us
