The Winners!


Sadie, Winner of The National Dog Show

Recently, there have been two huge dog competitions. The National Dog Show was filmed a couple of weeks ago but not aired until today. Out of hundreds of dog breeds, Sadie won Best In Show. This Scottish Terrier hails from Mackinaw Island, Michigan. This is her 102nd Best In Show award. You may want to keep an eye out for this dog when the Westminster Dog Show happens.
Million Dollar Winner

Dr. Papidies, Cutest Dog Competition Winner

In other dog news this week, a winner was chosen for the Cutest Dog Competition. Competing in a field of 60,000 dogs with over 7 million votes, the million dollar recipient is Dr. Papidies! Dr. Papidies is a Chihuahua who overcame tremendous odd. He was originally diagnosed with Addison's Disease three years ago. He was in intensive care due to this disease and was lucky enough to have his owner Dr. Leslie Capin be able to give him the proper medical care to have the disease effectively treated.

Since he has healed, Dr. Papidies has joined Dr. Capin's practice as the office mascot. Hence the name "Dr. Papidies". What's even more amazing is that all of the winnings are going to be shared between two charities: The Dumb Friends Animal League, one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the Rocky Mountains and the Max Fund Animal Shelter, a no-kill shelter based out of Denver. The other three semi-finalists will win an award of $5,000.

Congratulations to both of these extraordinary dogs! Did you see or participate in either of these events? If so, go ahead a leave a comment or e-mail.
