American Humane Associaton Hero Dog Award Winners

In the darkness comes light, in confusion comes answers. “Man’s
Best Friend is an Arsonist Worst Nightmare”. Sadie is a 5 year old
Black Labrador Retriever. Sadie has been a nationally certified
accelerant detection K-9 since May of 2007. Sadie works in the
Major Crimes Unit of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. She
has worked approximately 400 fires, and has assisted in cases
resulting in numerous arrests. Sadie has never lost in court. Sadie
has worked numerous high profile arson/homicide cases where her
nose has detected critical evidence for collection and prosecution.
Sadie has worked in extreme environments (high rise buildings,
collapsing structures, snow covered mountains) and never missed
a call to duty. Sadie has an incredibly friendly demeanor. She
conducts approximately 50 K-9 demonstrations a year to promote
fire safety and fire prevention. Sadie had been recognized for
numerous awards including the “Golden Paws” Award for lifesaving
and heroic acts, the “Hero Medal” from the Masonic Lodge,
and is a co-partner in being recognized as “Colorado Peace Officer
of the Year”. Any K-9 who unconditionally serves the public while
placing their own safety in jeopardy deserves our praise and
admiration. I have witnessed Sadie’s commitment to her job and
community first hand and it is second to none, which motivates me
to nominate her for this honor. She is truly an ambassador for all
working dogs, and I am humbled to be her partner.
The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards will air on November 11 on the Hallmark Channel. Hero dogs will be honored for their amazing accomplishments in eight categories. Among those attending this red carpet gala, a sort of Golden Globes for pets – except that instead of the booze flowing freely, there is Cesar Canine... Read more »

Robin says, "We'll be back next year." After the event a volunteer came up to me and asked the most unusual quesiton, "Are you and Robin related?" First, I thought she was referring to my wife, Robin....But she meant Robin Ganzert. She said, "You both talk from your heart, and work so well together - I just thought you'd known one another for a long time." Well, here's what it is - Robin Ganzert and I do share the same vision. We're going to see, animal assisted therapy programs grow in America - because of people like Diana, and becasue of the outcome of human/animal interactions are so profound.
The American Humane Association celebrated it’s Denver-based animal assisted therapy program, most especially honoring the volunteers, December 3 at the Westin in Denver. This was an emotionally riveting evening….You’ll read and see why….
