Oh, and Elwood won.

I heard one of the judges puked on Elwood and he got prettier.

Y'know, The Chinese Crested seems to be a tad overrepresented in these contests. There probably need to be two divisions, a Chinese Crested/crosses group and a non-Chinese Crested division.

And Elwood is certainly a worthy recipient of the award. My money would have been on PeeWee Martini, though.

For me, Sam will always be the world's ugliest dog.

Yeah, just based on the pictures with the article, Pee Wee Martini was the clear winner.

contests for world's ugliest dog no different than for world's most beautiful woman; it's entirely subjective, you're gonna favor the one in your house and there's a lot of them out there.

Hello good dog,
you look sad,
What's the matter?

I feel bad.

Good dog, good dog,
what can I do?
What's the problem?

I feel blue.

Love that, Mblue. Where on earth did that come from?

not one of these adonises can hold a candle to Sam but Pee Wee Martini is the fugliest of the bunch.

My god, vronsky, that dog is so cute it could be used to market anything from toilet paper to fabric softener!

If Chinese Cresteds are so damned ugly, why do there seem to be so many of them? Yeesh...

I dated a guy like that, but, see, it wasn't his tongue...

Dear God, Sam and Pee Wee Martini are a testament to how mankind can screw up a gene-pool.
I can see my next argument now:
"Genetic engineering is fine, we've been breeding dogs for centuries - GE is just faster."
"Have you seen the chinese crested crossbreeds? Have you??? Stay the hell away from *my* DNA!"

Pee Wee Martini and Elwood tie for ugliest. Mr. Winkle wins hands down for creepiest looking stuffed animal on the planet who possibly maybe an actual animal.

This is what happens when doggy style is the only option.

I suspect the use of styling mousse in some of those photos to get the hair right. Seriously!

Vronksy. Do not fuck with Mr Winkle. A friend of mine did once, and now he's geriatric, whereas previously he had just made it to joined up writing. Mr Winkle can suck the youth right out of ya DIRECTLY OVER THE INTERNET.

Pee Wee Martini isn't really ugly; he's almost a living caricature of the notion of ugly-dogness. I'd like to scratch his ears and offer him a biscuit.

OK we get it, Chinese Crested is an ugly breed.
posted by psmealey at 4:56 AM on June 23, 2007


In the defense of the Chinese Crested, we have a 2-year-old of the "hairy hairless" variety, and she is absolutely adorable.
posted by jozxyqk at 5:43 AM on June 23, 2007


Yeah, but that's just because the hair hides the ugly.

DEMON DOG! You can see the evil in those black eyes!

Cute evil, but still...

Video of Elwood winning.

I remember watching an ugly dog contest (on Animal Planet, I think) a year or two back and one of the contestants noted that she hadn't even bothered entering her little ball of ugly while Sam was still around, but now that Sam had passed on (to the brutal hell he was destined to rule) she figured they might have a chance.

Her dog was pretty damned ugly, yep. But comparing him to Sam made him look like a Disney princess.

He is complete with ugly dog warts, freckles and a lack of teeth, so he can't keep his tongue in his mouth,

Rascal is Ugly Dog Royalty being from a dynasty of ugly with his Mom, Grandmother, and Grandfather all who have held the title of "The World's Ugliest Dog" each 1-8 times.

This is twisted.

Whoa. My brain is reeling from the dog ugliness in this thread. (Except for Mr. Winkle and jozxyqk's dog. Cute!)

But I do believe, while Elwood was a worthy opponent, Pee Wee Martini was robbed. Robbed, I say!
