FFF-The Ugly Dog Contest

Written by Patti on June 24th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

My friend Kate, in NYC, always has the latest, interesting news.

Apparently, there is a festival going down in California today.

It’s the Ugly Dog Contest! And while I am of the opinion that there are no ugly dogs, this is an occasion to celebrate everything canine today.

Bless her heart.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual contest held in Petaluma, California, U.S., as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair, to decide which of the dogs entered in the contest is the ugliest.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Award is a bittersweet accomplishment for a canine. Whether it be hair loss, a missing eyeball, or hopelessly warped teeth – one constant remains each year: these pooches are unsightly. But don’t worry, they are always treated with compassion and compensated for their ugliness with $1000 prize, international press, and – most importantly – unconditional love from their owners.

A toast to all the dogs in our lives.
