“Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor” Finalists and Voting Hashtags:
Louboutina (#LoubieForStreamys) – Human or pet, Louboutina offers friendship to all. The New York celebrity, better known to her fans as Loubie, is a golden retriever who has gained widespread recognition online for the warm and loving hugs she gives passersby on her native streets. Loubie’s hugs provide love and comfort for both strangers and her family. Her first rescue mission was being by her dad’s side through his darkest times at the end of a long-term relationship.
Pierre Don’t Care (#PierreForStreamys) – Pierre isn’t just a cute face. The Frenchie is a therapy dog who lets his owner dress him as characters to cheer up the people around him. Aside from dressing up as musicians and celebrities, he’s also part of LAX’s Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) program, assisting uneasy fliers and children while they wait at the airport.
Todd The Hero Dog (#ToddForStreamys) – Todd is the epitome of a good boy. His heroism made waves in June 2018 when he saved his owner from a rattlesnake bite during a hike by taking the bite himself, causing the internet to swoon with love for the golden. Though he recovered from the wound, that day will always be a reminder of the innate loyalty to his human. As a ripple effect, a fundraiser posted by “Friends of Todd” was started to help other dogs who need anti-venom.
Fans can vote once per day by tweeting the hashtag for their favorite finalist. Voting will close on Friday, October 19, 2018 at 11:59:59 p.m. PT.
