The Noseprint™ Golden Dog Awards 2016
We believe every dog deserves to be celebrated, because every dog is awesome in its own unique way. The winners of The Noseprint™ first annual Golden Dog Awards are no exception. Each one of these dogs excels in the fields of cuteness, dedication and general greatness. See why these pups from Canine Assistants take home the big prizes.
Best Head Tilt
Ah, the head tilt — a gesture so evocative, it could mean anything from "Is that treat for me?” to a good, hearty "Huh?" This pup tilts his head with grace and asks the ever-present question, "Why?"
Best Travel Buddy
This golden boy went the extra mile to provide extra smiles. He traveled by plane from Georgia to Florida to visit applicants for the Canine Assistants program. His calm and elegant, jet-setting style makes him a first-class dog!
Best Sleep Smile
Maybe this winning pup was already dreaming of victory when this picture was snapped, or maybe she’s a naturally sweet sleeper. Either way, we’ll take her snoozy grin over snoozy snoring all day!
Best Action Pose
Fearlessly running headfirst into adventure, this dog earns the award for best action shot. May the accolade be as rewarding as the feeling of the wind whooshing in her ears.
Best Graduation Photo
This goldendoodle shows us what it truly means to be both a gentledog and a scholar in this snapshot from a Canine Assistants graduation. One look at her stately pose conveys that the hard work and education this ‘doodle went through has really paid off. Hello, dean's list!
This Canine Assistant dog and his human friend share the Goofiest Grin award. Their hard work and friendship is really something we all can smile about.
Most of us would use an injury as an excuse to relax and lay low, but not this guy. This Canine Assistants dog participated in a race for folks with artificial limbs just a few months after hurting her own leg. With her smile and determination, this pup is sure to take this award in stride.
Mom of the Year
For humans and dogs alike, being a mom takes hard work. So we award the honor to this mama, who not only has had several litters throughout her life but also greets each pup with a smile. Three cheers for mom!
Thomas Jefferson, Queen Elizabeth I and this pup: all redheads known for their boldness and tenacity. The dog in this picture shows that there are many shades of golden.
At the Golden Dog Awards, it's less about red carpet glamour and more about good old-fashioned fun! What awards would your pup earn? Tell us in the comments. And to all the incredible pups out there, "We like you, we really like you!"
