Ugly Dogs Have Their Day
After being named the world’s second ugliest last year, Elwood, a 2-year-old
Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, is sitting pretty this year as the ultimate
Elwood, who is often referred to as “Yoda” or “E.T.,” competed against 13 other dogs
at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair’s annual ugly dog contest in Petaluma, California,
on Friday, June 22.
Elwood’s owner, Karen Quigley, center, of Sewell, New Jersey, celebrates the
big win with Elwood. Six-pound Elwood beat last year’s winner, Archie, left,
held by Heather Peoples. At right is Rascal with his owner Dane Andrew.
Quigley said she rescued the dog two years ago from a breeder who was going to
euthanize him. “She thought he was too ugly to sell,” Quigley said.
Thirteen-year-old competitor Poppy gets a kiss from his owner, Tamara.
Poppy, who was rescued from a puppy mill earlier this year, must be fed by spoon
because he lost all his teeth and has a jaw deformity.
Poppy’s fans cheer on their favorite.
Pee Wee Martini, a 2-year-old Chinese Crested and Japanese Chin mix,
looks over his owner Kristin Maszkiewicz’s shoulder.

Most of the entrants were Chinese Crested, a breed that features a Mohawk,
bug eyes and a long tongue.
Reggie lets it all hang out as owner Brian Peoples gives him a lift.
Dawn Goehring, of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and her Chinese Crested, Ellie,
share matching expressions.
Sam, a Chinese Crested who died in 2005, set a high standard for ugly.
He won in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Here, he chews on his leg.

Yeah I saw this on drudge. I think they kind of look like spike from Gremlins.

I opened this thread expecting to find photos of the chicks I've dated. Turns out it wasn't too far off the mark.
