“We are thrilled to once again sponsor this award in’s 20th anniversary year. The DWAA was one of the very first organizations under the auspices of then president Mordecai Seigal to step up and sponsor as a media partner. Since that time I’ve had the honor and privelege to work with many DWAA presidents including Jen Reeder, immediate past-president, Carol Bryant, current president, Ranny Green, a past DWAA president and Hall of Famer and the youngest Hall of Famer, Steve Dale. It’s been a rewarding relationship, but the most rewarding part has been the friendships made and the bond formed with the dog writing community. Congratulations to all finalists and all winners,” said Germinder.”

Sponsored by in celebration of the digital platform’s 20th anniversary, the Goodnewsforpets DWAA special award is for the best digital story – online video, blog post or online article with photography that best demonstrates the bond between people and their canine companions.
