The Humane Society of the United States named Yogi, the golden retriever, the 2011 Valor Dog of the Year for saving his owner’s life following a bicycle accident. Paul Horton, from Austin, Texas, went over the handlebars on his mountain bike and landed on his head. He was unconscious, and until he regained consciousness, Yogi was by his side.
