This is the world's ugliest dog?

by Justin

The World's Ugliest Dog Contest was once again held at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds, in Petaluma, California.  In year's past, the heinous hounds and dilapidated dogs too ugly not to love have been paraded through the fairgrounds by owners hoping to hoist the hardware.  The champions usually look something like this:

But the winner this year was a four-year-old beagle-basset mix named Walle.  Yeah, he's a weird shape, his legs are stubby, his ears are too long...but he's a beagle basset mix.  That's what he's supposed to look like!  

What's ugly about him?

The judges say they picked Walle as the winner out of 30 entrants because, quote, "This dog looked like he's been Photoshopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals."  Again, yes- he's a mix of two odd dog breeds.  

And as the owner of a "Bagel" (beagle basset mix) I can honestly say- what the hell did you expect?  (This is my Smooch pictured below.)
