The Golden Poodle award goes to Dean Parlett, a truck driver in England who found a stray Poodle, fell in love with her and then made a heartbreaking 300 mile trip to return her to her owner.
But there was a happy ending.
Contrasted with the Neanderthal award to Dave and Trisha Watson from South Carolina who found a Chihuahua and made the owners, a family with five children, go through an expensive 2½ year legal battle to finally get her back.
The Lizard Brain award goes to the couple who applied for credit to buy a $3000 Bulldog puppy from a pet store. When the application was rejected, they stole an iPad and were caught on the security camera.
All of their personal information was on their application.
