Hero Dog Awards

Today I discovered the Hero Dog Awards sponsored by the American Human Association.

The contest celebrates the dogs who “enrich, enhance, and even save our lives.” Categories include therapy, guide, law enforcement/arson, hearing, search and rescue, military, emerging hero, and service dogs. 453 dogs were nominated and you can now vote for one of the 8 dogs which are competing for the title 2011 American Hero Dog.
