  1. Awww, these guys just want some love, they all do.

    I will say that that’s a lot of missing teeth and hair

  2. It’s always sweet to see how much their pet parents love them. You’re always beautiful in the eyes of those who love you.

    My favorite quote: “A dog’s beauty-any dog’s beauty-is on the inside.” 🙂 We should all be so beautiful.

  4. doomchild says:

    Precisely! And to hear people say they participate just to show that your pooch doesn’t need to be a well-trimmed show winner 🙂

  5. Rachael says:

    There is no such thing as an ugly dog. Some are more gorgeous than others but to me, they are all beautiful.

  6. Blondie says:

    I think Walle is wonderful…not ugly at all!!!

  7. I don’t understand how Walle “won” I don’t see anything weird about him. He’s a beagle basset cross and quite cute… I’m so incredibly confused.

  8. I suspect they got bored with Chinese Cresteds winning every year. Perhaps they should create a category just for Ugliest Chinese Crested.

  9. Cynthia M says:

    Walle isn’t ugly. Lester Holt, the NBC weekend anchor, even said that the consensus at NBC was that Walle was cute!

    This is so sweet. I love these cute little dogs, they bring happy tears to my eyes!
