Pablo would like to congratulate this year’s winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest–Yoda, a 14-year-old Chinese-crested chihuahua mix. In its 23rd year, the contest, held on June 24th in the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in Petaluma, California, raises awareness about rescue dogs and the dangers of in-breeding.
Being plum ugly brought Yoda and her proud owner, Terry Schumacher, a $1,000 prize. That amount of cash can buy a whole lot of chew toys. Congrats, Yoda! You’re sitting pretty!
