The Golden Poodle award goes to Lonca, Jardo and police dogs everywhere for the obvious reasons.
The Lizard Brain award goes to the two men who were breaking into self storage units when six police dog training units showed up to do their regular drills.
The Neanderthal award goes to the woman who stopped her car to steal the beloved 12-year-old Chihuahua companion to a 95-year-old veteran from his own front yard.
The Angel award goes to the linemen at Pacific Gas & Electric (not my favorite company, but let’s give credit where it’s due) for rescuing a cat from the top of a 45 foot pole where he had been stranded for nine days.
My blogging buddy Linda from Colorado commented further:
That cat was lucky! My husband was a lineman for 37 years...most of the time a cat will come down on its own, the other times they get electrocuted.
Getting a cat down is a huge deal...they don't just jump into your arms and start purring, they claw into the pole and hang on....then velcro to the wood as they are being picked up and after that turn into a ball of fury!
Hanging onto the cat to climb down 30 or 50 feet is a HUGE deal...or to take a ride in a bucket truck can turn into another scared cat situation!
My hat is off to the Power Company, who shut down all those homes (and took the complaints and the whines) for 'just a cat'. They understood stood that it wasn't JUST A CAT!
