The annual World's Ugliest Dog contest went down on Friday. It was at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. And even though the winner IS ugly, he's also strangely beautiful . . . like a sunset over a garbage dump, perhaps?
This year the World's Ugliest Dog is a two-year-old mutt named Peanut.
Peanut was injured in a fire, so he doesn't have lips or eyelids. That means his eyes are always bugging out and watering . . . and it always looks like he's smiling. His hair is all over the place too.
His owner is a woman named Holly Chandler from Greenville, North Carolina. She won $1,500 from the contest and she's going to use it to pay other pets' vet bills.
Quote, "He's my baby. I guess I don't see him every day as being that ugly, but I guess the judges thought so."
(Here are some photos of Peanut, and here's the website for the contest with all the dogs he beat.)
