World’s Ugliest Dogs

Poor pups. What a horrible blow to the self-esteem of all these poor doggies that they are being judged in the “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest. That’s the kind of treatment that would cause one to bite the hand that feeds it. This series of photos of scrawny, mangy, bug-eyed canines from this year’s Sonoma-Marin Fair is enough to make you want to give poor Miss Ellie a Scooby Snack laced with strychnine. Just to put her out of our misery. But then again, the dog bears an amazing resemblance to Phyllis Diller, and she turned out to be pretty successful, right?
