BONG!.............

A French police dog who was killed in a raid after the Paris attacks is being honoured with a top bravery medal.

Just a couple of points on this one:

1) It's rather odd giving dead animals medals. (Pigeons being the most odd example).

2) It wasn't brave.  It probably thought it was another one of those ace games where you get to bite a man's big padded arm.

Interestingly, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.I._Joe_(pigeon) came up via the random article button recently, and I concluded the same.  Though he was a badass pigeon.

Only since they changed the 'definition'.
Winter stretches to 21 March by 'old' definition.

2/3 of Atomic Kitten were the highlight of UKC's summer ball one year.  Presumably they couldn't get Craig David.

He was a successful ukc.misc in-joke.  I can't explain his popularity in the wider world, but if he'd rocked up at the summer ball holding a rice cooker, he'd certainly have got a standing ovation.

BONG!......

Dog is crowned "Best dog in world".

I'm keen to know the best of other species now.  Best Mouse?  Best Monkey?

Crufts is one hell of a strange spectacle isn't it?  Even the reasons for it aren't that clear.  They seem to be trying to preserve the integrity of certain breeds whilst, at the same time, conveniently ignoring that these "pure-breeds" were bred from other breeds in the first place, sometimes at the expense of the dog's health for merely aesthetic reasons (a practice perpetuated by this weird beauty pageant).

Congenital deformities of face, back, legs ...etc., bred for, and prized for, some fashionable aesthetic in Doggy World, can lead to some horrible medical conditions.
