Ugly Dogs are Champions too.





Meet Gus! He's a a three-legged, one-eyed, half-bald Chinese Crested dog and the champion of a very unusual dog competition. Gus here was voted top ugly dog by dog-lovers from all over the world most of whom descended upon Petaluma, California, for the 20th Annual World's Ugliest Dog competition. Gus pulled off this coup by beating some seriously stiff competition, like Elwood, a Chihuahua. Personally, I think Elwood nailed it with his white mohawk and smooth crispy skin, but ugliness, like beauty, is clearly in the eye of the beholder.

Yep, Sam was hands down the ugly dog champion of the world. Unbeatable I'd say.

I feel like Elwood looks.
Not a great day in other words.
Any news on your pug plan? Tested any of the persuasion tactics on the paramour?

Poor little Ellwood's tongue - can it even fit in his mouth? It must get all dried out and gather fluff and flies.

I hate to see dogs bred into discomfiture like that. Poor wee sod.

Sam gets my vote for ugliest pooch - thing was a demon!

The more I look at it the more I feel Elwood was robbed. POssible the lack of a limb softened up the judges for Gus.

"lack of a limb softened up the judges for Gus"

No doubt about it... like oscars for playing Gump, Left Foot etc

Totally, next year they ought to get one of them to pack on the pounds and try make themselves more ugly, like Charlize did in Monster. That will help garner a win, I'm sure.

Good grief, some of those animals have been truly tapped repeatedly with the ugly stick.

Or they could tack on a fake ugly nose as Ms. Kidman did to win her Oscar.
Hated that film.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I don't mind the film- although I have NO idea how she won an oscar for that role, none what so ever.
But I do like the book a whole lot. But ain't that nearly always the way?

kUgliness IS only skin deep. But what if, like me, you are unfortunate enough to be ugly on the inside as well? Eh? Where are the prizes for us?

But she was so brave as an actress to make herself look so unattractive!! Wasn't that just so bold and actorly? Especially as she's cute? She really is remarkable to have taken such a risk, a true master of her craft.

"The art must come first! I must dim my beauty for the sake of the story!" I expect she cried every morning in make-up.

Brave indeed.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet just called. They're in negotiations to make another Alien film, except this time Sigourney Weaver wants a fucking dog.

You think so Sam? I thought her performance a bit staged and reeking of pork. I think being uglified is easier than acting, you let the stage make up become the character.
I'm tired of her whispery emoting. I loved her in To Die For, and since then I can't think of a single film I thought 'WOW'. Even in Moo-lawn Rouge she bored the ring off me- although she can sing, unlike shouty old Ewan.


Docky, you don't need prizes for that, people will recognise it and give you a wide berth, prize enough you ask me.

LK! We crossed. I can see Elwood bursting out of someone's chest, can't you?

No! No I don't. That was my point.

I've got to brush up on my sarcasm delivery.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

Oh darling, I'm sorry, but of course! The fault lies not with your delivery, but with my tired, had three glasses of (deliciously french) wine, off for a week, eyes. L'siento cariño!

Oooh! Are you taking a holiday from work? Doing anything fun or just taking a well-earned rest?

Imbibe freely, dear fmc! For life is short and time is fleeting!

I have six days off, having spent an intolerable amount of early mornings working my rear end clean off. SIX DAYS Sam, SIX!!
Tomorrow I will do lunch in town, after that I may need to catch up on some reading, and there will be sleeping, plenty of sleeping. Huzzah for down time!

Blogger Medbh said...

Huzzah indeed for your downtime, FMC.

I hated the film (didn't read the novel) because it made women look like crazy bitches or doormats. Virginia Woolf DID NOT walk around muttering to her flowers near the end.

Enjoy it, fmc., Happy happy holidays to you.

"Virginia Woolf DID NOT walk around muttering to her flowers near the end"

How do you know? The women heard voices, I'd say it was more than flowers she talked to and then off course she killed herself highlighting her "madness" in a letter to her husband. Still quite brilliant all things considered, a literary genius some might say, far better than that haemorrhoid Joyce. He just get bigger and more irritating each year. I often wonder if Mrs Woolf had have been a man or kept up a male persona would her work have been given more credit then that tools. I liked the film.
