And the 2008 Worldwide Fido Award Goes To . . .

Gabe, the bulldog from Bellingham, Wash. who flushes toilets, skateboards, and even rides a rocking horse! Congrats to this super cute smooshy for his big title!
OK, now the back story: Hosted by Fred Willard (star of one of our favorite animal movies), the 2008 Worldwide Fido Awards took place in the aptly-named Barker Hangar in Santa Monica over the weekend. The finalists were announced for six categories including our very own Samson who captured the title of "Cutest Dog" – woohoo!

Judges for the event included celebrity dog trainer Tamar Gellar and actors Kevin Nealon and Vivica A. Fox, and lucky for us LilPeaPod has some behind the scenes tales coming later today.
