World’s Ugliest Cutest Dog Contest!

The World’s Ugliest Cutest Dog Contest was held earlier tonight at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, which is north of San Francisco. The fair website site says, “It’s not about making fun of ‘ugly’ dogs, but having fun with some wonderful characters and showing the world that these dogs are really beautiful!” We’ll have deets on the winner when they become available!

UPDATE: And your winner is none other than Peanut!

    As always there are several dogs that are nowhere near ugly.

    But that Peanut, man. That guy is a lock

  2. I love both of their wide smiles!

  3. Monkey is much too cute to have won. Most of them were very cute. Some, like peanut, are so ugly they are cute. I’ve never met an ugly dog – and I am a cat person.

  4. This contest is so much fun. You can tell the owners and dogs really love each other, and that’s beautiful no matter where you come from.

  5. Aw, these puppets may not be so physically cute but I think think they are adorable, if that makes any sense! Glad they are loved! 🙂

  6. Saffron says:

    They are all so cute. I love them all. ❤

  7. Daniel T says:

    Called it.

  8. Nice pet chupacabra.

  9. Is it just me or is the guy in the second photo the most photogenic dog owner ever?!
