A round of applause (or, ahem, appaws), please!

Not only has the owner of this adorable French bulldog somehow convinced her protesting pooch to go to sleep in his bed, but the pair are the winners of our first-ever PEOPLE Pets Awards viral video contest. You voted for this adorable puppy in our online poll – and we don't blame you.

Because we realize that videos like this one (which we affectionately call: "French Bulldog Doesn't Want to Go to Bed Yet, Mom!") can be as important to our existence as say, water, we set out to honor the classics that made us laugh, aww or otherwise distracted us from important duties at hand (like laundry).

Want even more pets goodness? Pick up this week's issue of PEOPLE, which celebrates the finest and furriest with the rest of the PEOPLE Pets Awards honorees.

Is This Truly the Cat From Hell?

Originally posted 06/13/2014 04:05 PM

In theory, it certainly seemed like a match made in heaven – the world's leading cat behaviorist and the world's craziest cat.

In reality, however, things turned out differently for Jackson Galaxy, host of the Animal Planet show My Cat From Hell, and a 22-lb. feline named Lux, who made headlines around the planet in March when he allegedly flipped out on his owners, forcing them to call 911 for help.

"In the 20 years I've been doing this, I've never met a cat like Lux," Galaxy tells PEOPLE of his time spent trying to help the troubled feline, which viewers can see in an episode airing on Saturday, June 14. "I can say without hesitation that Lux is the most complicated character I think I've ever dealt with."

There's one paw-some student from a middle school in San Antonio, Texas's Northside Independent School District who won't be signing any yearbooks this year.

His name is Taxi. He's the adorable service dog of seventh grader Rachel Benke, and he's landed himself a spot in this year's yearbook.

So beloved is the pup by Benke (who has had epileptic seizures since birth), faculty, and students that his picture was placed right next to hers, just like another student. It's quite the honor for the Lab/golden retriever mix, who Benke's mother, Teresa Benke, describes as a "guide dog dropout" because he didn't succeed in guide dog training.

Dog Finds Abandoned Newborn on Michigan Porch

Ruby Mae knew something wasn't right.

During an early morning walk with her owner Leslie Green, of Port Huron, Michigan, the dog made a beeline for a neighbor's porch. There, an hours-old infant – with his umbilical cord still attached – was wrapped in bloody towels, just waiting for someone to help.

"She wanted me to go up [to the porch]," Green told Detroit's WDIV news. "So I get up there and I see this little dinky face, and I was freaked out."

Police told the local news station that the dog spotted the baby just in time: Had he been left outside any longer, the infant likely would not have survived.

Purr-fect is the best way to describe Craig Armstrong's unique mountain-climbing partner.

He adopted the stunning black feline named Millie from an animal shelter in Park City, Utah, and she is all he ever wanted in a sidekick.

"I go on a lot of weekend climbing adventures. I always figured when I have a pet friend, I'll take her with me," Armstrong tells Bored Panda. "It never seemed odd to me, just seems like something I'd do with my pet, take her places."
