I’m Zsa Zsa, I’m Ugly, And I Win

Here she is, Miss World’s Ugliest Dog, 2018! Yes, Zsa Zsa, a 9 year old English Bulldog has won this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog contest, earning her owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, $1,500 prize money in the process. Zsa Zsa won her title Saturday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, California.

The contest is in its 30th year, and this year’s entrants included a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin, and a Pekingese named Wild Thang. Everyone knew it was going to be a challenge to meet the standards set by last year’s winner, a 125 pound Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha, who won with a droopy face and a lot of gas. But Zsa Zsa pulled it off with an extreme underbite, broadly rounded front legs, and a long, long lolling tongue.

The contest is silly and fun, but red carpet and puppy manicures aside; it gives the public an opportunity to see all dogs, no matter their looks, deserve a good and loving home. It proves once again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

About Valleygrail

Native Californian by birth, Pacific Northwesterner by choice. Jack of all trades, master of none; always wishing I could stick with just one thing long enough to become expert. But then what about all those things left unattended? See? Not possible. I love life, my family, friends, a good book, Irish music, rain, fog, and a pint of Guinness. It's a good journey, and sharing with companions makes it even better. Thanks for being with me as I embrace it and you!
