Wordless Wednesday: Canine Cop of the Year

Fiona, an English bulldog, was crowned the Top Dog: Canine Cop of the Year by the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington, D.C.

According to the website of the museum — which, you’ll be relieved to hear, is more CSI than Dostoyevsky — the contest was:

Inspired by the world’s most famous canine, McGruff the Crime Dog… [and designed] to recognize those special dogs out there that protect and serve in their everyday life. Whether it be protecting the sofa from any fallen crumbs, serving the neighborhood by keeping the grass fertilized, or guarding doggie treats with extreme intensity we want to showcase how your special pooch serves you and your community.

The judges selected Fiona’s photo based on creativity, quality of the photo, and the entertaining story submitted by her companion, Gloria Sams of Fairfax, Virginia. According to the entry submitted by Sams:

While on duty in the neighborhood parking lot, Fiona discovered a dusting of latent dog paw prints in the parking lot when a car theft occurred in the neighborhood. She lifted the paw prints using a special powder, scanned them into her laptop to analyze the evidence for a positive potential paw print match!

As the overall winner, Fiona walked — and rode — with the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Monday’s Independence Day Parade in Washington, D.C.

Fiona will be featured on the cover of the Canine Cop 2012 calendar, sold through the Humane Society of the United States.

I want that calendar!
