Meet The Most Famous Dog In The World

It’s a great story. A one-of-a-kind perceptive empathetic dog. Endal is the name. And Wiki has him as the most decorated doggie in the world. Thanks to this heaven-sent Labrador, his master’s life has been wondefully transformed from one of abject misery and self-pity to one filled with hope, smiles and selflessness.

Read Endal’s story here. Simply extraordinary!

Some of the more prominent awards he’s won :-

  • 2000 “Dog of the Millennium”
  • 2002 the first ever “Lifetime Achievement” Golden Bone Awards
  • 2002 PDSA Gold Medal (UK equivalent of the George Cross) awarded to animals who have shown outstanding devotion to their duties in peace time.
  • 2003 Gold Blue Peter Badge the highest award for “outstanding bravery and courage”. One of only two ever awarded to dogs.
  • 2004  “Lifetime Achievement Award” (Wag and Bone Show)

Able magazine wrote in 2007, “Allen and Endal have become celebrities, with worldwide press attention focusing on Endal’s skills and abilities…” Wiki

Ceramic That Looks Like Gold And Feels Like Gold

Amazingly, ceramic be made to not only look just like gold and have the texture of gold but better yet, be at least 5 times as hard.

Kyocera is the inventor of this high tech ceramic. At least 20 times cheaper than the real thing. A bright future is guaranteed!

And ideal for those allergic to metallic gold.

A Designer Monitor From Dell

This 22” HD panel from Dell, a Best of CES Innovations Award 2008 winner, is composed of tempered glass, a zinc alloy tripod stand, touch controls, an integrated 2 meg webcam, a microphone and 4 integrated speakers. At a dollar shy of USD1200 it’s not meant for the mass market.

Great for an office where style is preeminently important.
