Nominated in Animal


Norbert, the adorable three-pound “therapy dog, children's book author & philanthropist” may be small in stature, but he’s had a huge impact by bringing smiles to people who need them most. He is a fixture at Children’s Hospital LA, where his hanging tongue and high fives lift the spirits of patients. Owner Julie Steines calls Norbert a “magical bundle of joy,” with an Instagram feed filled with pictures to support her claim. Whether they show Norbert hanging out with sick children, other dogs, or Julie’s baby, they’ve warmed the hearts of nearly 1M Facebook fans and 580K+ Instagram followers. The tiny mixed breed had a busy 2017, releasing his book, Norbert’s Little Lessons for a Big Life, which he shared with Kathie Lee and Hoda on The Today Show.
