Today Show’s Pet Of The Year Winner
By The TODAY Show was especially adorable this week when a blind Golden Retriever, Ray Charles, took home the first ever Pet of the Year “Orangey” at the show’s inaugural Orange Room Awards. Celebrating the year’s best viral videos, the TODAY Show invited Charles on set to accept his award. Popular on both Facebook and YouTube, the one-year-old puppy took off when the dog’s companion, Andrew Fales, created a Facebook page dedicated to Charles—eventually accumulating over 100,000 ‘likes.’ Charles’ competition was stiff, going up against the likes of an adorable pig in a wheelchair named Chris P. Bacon among others. You can watch Ray Charles accept his award on live television at the link below, courtesy of NBC’s TODAY Show. — Global Animal Ray Charles accepts his “Orangey” on the TODAY Show.
