you are so beautiful, to me.

Gus, a Chinese Crested Hairless, won the illustrious and much coveted title of World’s Ugliest Dog on Sunday in Florida. He has three legs, one eye, and one hell of a personality. He apparently slept through most of the competition.

And I’m freaking out. Why? Because I have a Chinese Crested Hairless dog.

My beautiful boy, Dr. Seuss (because he looks like a Dr. Seuss book character, duh), is amazing. And not ugly! I swear! But ugly is what people think of when they know the breed. Most of the recent past winners of the competition have all been at least part Chinese Crested.

So sure, Gus and Dr. Seuss might not be the picturesque puppies you see in the Purina commercials. I cannot tell you how many times people have asked me if Seuss was on chemo. Chinese Cresteds’ conventional beauty is on the inside-just like many humans. Maybe it’s just me, but instead of mocking their lack of soft and fluffy, we should be taking a minute to acknowledge how unique they are and appreciate the fact that they make us laugh. Haha, okay, that might just be me.

Anyway, I just wanted to post the link to the slide show of the competitors this year so that you could have a good laugh. (I laughed out loud a lot.) It was a tough year! My favorite is Squiggy. He looks badass.

Also, here is Sam, a three-time champion of the competition. If he hadn’t died, I’m sure he’d still be the champion. I’m obviously sensitive about the way people treat the breed, but I can say that this is legitimately the ugliest dog ever.

  3. YAA Adding this to my bookmarks. Thank You

  4. I believe everything wrote was actually very reasonable.

    But, think on this, what if you added a little information?

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., however suppose you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean you are so beautiful, to me. | six words to change the world. is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article headlines to get people to open the links.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two
    to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
