The Golden Poodle award goes to Chili, the first dog to be certified for pest-related scent detection on a farm.
The Lizard Brain award goes to a building council in a Vancouver, BC for refusing to allow a lease to a fish and chip restaurant because of its name—Moby Dick.
They claimed 'Dick' was an offensive word which would hurt the value of neighboring properties and do other bad stuff.
The lovely and brilliant Pamela of Something Wagging This Way Comes suggested that this should be used as an opportunity to be more creative.
"How about calling the restaurant 'Call Me Fishmael?'"
The Neanderthal award goes to Warren Demesme who is in jail for sex crimes against children. During interrogation he asked for a lawyer dog instead of a lawyer and then made incriminating statements.
What he said can and will be used against him in in a court of law at his trial.
Thanks to spokesdog, Spicoli, for his PSA on canine cannabis.
