Anyone who has ever experienced the crazy scrapes pets can get into will appreciate Veterinary Pet Insurance's new Hambone Award. This award is given to a pet that needs medical intervention after it gets itself into trouble. A common theme? Eating something that isn't edible.

This year's nominees have been chosen and voting is open. Their stunts range from eating over a dozen pacifiers to devouring the same sock twice.

To vote, simply visit the site, read the pets' stories and then press the vote button beside the pet who seems to have gotten into the nuttiest scrape. Each person is allowed to vote one time.
