Vote for your favourite Dog of Valor

There's a very special contest being held by The Humane Society of the United States, honouring dogs who have performed extraordinary acts of courage. Some of the things these dogs have done are nothing short of heroic. Their stories will amaze you.

This is the second annual Dogs of Valor contest and there are 15 finalists, all deserving of the title. Each and every one of them showed how devoted dogs can be when called upon to defend and protect human beings.

There is a panel of Judges, including Benji (with the help of her humans, Kathleen and Joe Camp) but your votes will help determine the Valor Dog of the Year and three runners-up.

There are only two days left to vote, so please go over to
People's Hero Award The Humane Society of the United States, read about their spectacular acts of bravery, and cast your ballot.

If you read this post after voting ends, check out the link anyways because just knowing what these dogs have done will make you very proud to be a member of the dog kingdom.

Polls close Friday, May 15th at 5 p.m., Eastern Time.

Hi Chef. Doh. I arrived too late to vote. But all of those smart dogs deserve an award don't they? Hope I would be too in those situations. Though my vote went to Tyson who raise the alarm when the baby fell into the swimming pool or maybe the doggie who pulled the boy from the river...so hard to choose.

Wiry wags pal. Hope your Mom is taking you stickpiling.
