Victoria's hit TV show, It's Me or the Dog, has been nominated for a prestigious 2012 Genesis Award for its Bone of Contention episode. In this hard-hitting episode, Victoria's primary challenge is to convince the young owner of a particularly stubborn, potentially dangerous Presa Canario not to breed his dog and contribute to the already epidemic overpopulation problem, especially among larger bully breeds.
The series is also set to receive an honorable mention for another episode, Rocky Road, in which Victoria helps apathetic pet owners stop the finger pointing and start taking responsibility for their dangerously neurotic dog. Both episodes originally aired on Animal Planet during the long-running show's 7th season.
Every year, The Genesis Awards pays tribute to the major news and entertainment media for producing outstanding works that raise public awareness of animal issues. The awards have honored such well-known personalities as Anderson Cooper, Peter Gabriel, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Jane Goodall, David E. Kelley, Sir Paul McCartney, Arthur Miller and Prince as well as journalists, film and documentary writers and producers, print and broadcast news outlets in the United States.
The 26th Genesis Awards will be Saturday, March 24, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, CA and will be broadcast on Animal Planet in May.
