The Search is Over


There is no question about this week's Athlete of the Week. In fact, this athlete might just win Athlete of 2007... In rural Wisconsin, a 27-year-old man was about to be attacked by a charging black bear when his dog leaped in front of the beast. The dog suffered 28 puncture wounds to the chest and neck, and ultimately did not survive. But his heroic act saved the human's life, while reminding us all about loyalty and sacrifice.

The dog's name?

Dude.

You know how baseball waived its 5 year requirement when Clemente passed? I hereby propose the normal wait until the next Dudemania and nominate Dude the dog for the DudeSpin hall of fame. Is there a second?

It can surely be said: The Dude Abides.
