Dogs (sometimes) receive awards in recognition of their talent, honesty, loyalty, bravery and service.
People in UK can be nominated as 'Scotsman of the Year' even if they left three babes in an unlocked apartment in a foreign country.
Just my opinion.
''Gov. Terry Branstad officially retired Casey from active duty during Friday's ceremony, thanking the dog for a "job well done."
During the 150 missions they
performed together, Gundlach said Casey never missed an explosive — she
caught three before they could be detonated. He credits her for making
it back home safely.
"I wouldn't be here ... any kids I ever had wouldn't exist if Casey hadn't been here," he said.'' unquote
As you said, PeterMac, 'unreliable'.

One wonders why they bother.
Everyone nows they are notoriously unreliable.
On SkyNews today there is an elderly lady who had struggled to get out of the rubble giving an interview to (I think it's CBS news) and her dog is whining pitifully from the rubble. The camera crew didn't put down a camera or a boom. This little old lady who had survived the most devastating ordeal and was in full view of a camera crew lifted up some debris that slapped back down on the dog's head then actually had to ask for help!
Eamonn Holmes (I can't believe this) commented that it might be some sort of Airdale terrier!
Sorry if I'm off topic here but I watched this clip very early this morning and couldn't believe that the cameras kept rolling to get an interview from a little old lady who had survived such an ordeal and didn't bother to put down the bloody cameras to grapple the debris off her dog. They could have got interviews with other survivors. I was particularly disgusted.
And afterwards for finding the deceased. Except in Portugal.@aiyoyo wrote:In that sort of devastation and rubbles what would Police do without the dogs. Dogs are so invaluable to the search for survivals.
Funny that isn't it! Yet they were able to hit not once but 11 times on possessions specific to one household.
