Los Angeles (PRNewswire) — Todd, the Golden Retriever, won the first-ever “Milk-Bone® Dog of the Year Honor” at the 8th Annual Streamy Awards® in Beverly Hills.
The honor celebrates bravery, overcoming obstacles, strong personality and loyalty traits that make all dogs truly special. It was presented by dog lover and Olympic Silver Medalist (freestyle skier) Gus Kenworthy.
Todd’s heroism made waves in June 2018 when he saved his owner from a rattlesnake bite during a hike. As a ripple effect, a fundraiser posted by “Friends of Todd” was started to help other dogs who need to receive anti-venom medication. Todd’s efforts continue to help others save other dogs in need.
“We are so honored to win the first-ever Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor,” said Paula Godwin, Todd’s pet parent. “To be a part of a celebration like this so rewarding since the Streamys is typically a people-only awards show. We are truly grateful and blessed. Todd will be celebrating with lots of Milk-Bone treats!”
Jonathan Rodgers, senior brand manager of Milk-Bone said the honor was created because the company believes that dogs deserve to be honored in the same way humans are honored.
“We are thrilled that fans voted for Todd to win the first ever Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor,” Rodgers added. “Todd truly embodies the qualities associated with this honor and goes above and beyond by providing comfort and happiness to all of those around him.”
