The Golden Poodle award goes to Kasper, a sweet, formerly abused Pit Bull puppy, who became a service dog for a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder.
I hate to do this because the people were being kind and caring for a stray dog, but the Lizard Brain award has to go to the subway passengers in China who thought the fat male dog was going into labor.
A close second is the Chinese censoring of Winnie the Pooh.
The Neanderthal award goes to the first owner of Lu-Seal who let the little Chihuahua become morbidly obese and then abandoned her like last year's shoes.
It was Madonna, Britney, the Kardashian-Jenners, she-who-won't-be-named-on-this-blog and their slavish wannabes holding tiny puppies for the camera and carrying them in purses who have been mostly responsible for the glut of generations of abandoned Chihuahuas that are being killed in California animal shelters.
