Worlds Ugliest Dog Crowned


The Sonoma-Marin Fair held it's now nationally famous, 29th Annual Ugliest Dog Contest on Friday and a victor has been crowned.

With faces that only a mother could love, homely hounds went for the coveted title on Friday in California. Also, both Zindler and Martha will be flown to NY and will take part in what the event's organizers referred to as "media appearances".

The annual contest celebrates those dogs that may not earn a best of show, but are lovable and adoptable anyway.

It seems that not merely Kohli but also other players of the Indian team had grievances against the way Kumble functioned. By afternoon, it had emerged that Kohli had deleted the tweet in which he had welcomed Kumble on June 23 a year ago .

This year's victor, Martha, is owned by Shirley Zindler.

Martha, who is three and a half years old, is a sight to behold.

The judges took into consideration first impressions, unusual attributes, personality, and the crowd's reaction when deciding the winners.

Penguins thrash Predators, take control of Stanley Cup Final
But Pittsburgh's 6-0 win in Game 5 was the second true blowout of the series and the fourth decided by three or more goals. The Predators goalie, who gave up only two goals in two games in Nashville, gave up two goals in his first six minutes.

For winning the competition, Zindler was given a trophy commemorating the accomplishment and won $1,500, enough to buy Martha several boxes of well-deserved doggie treats. Martha's eyes might be bright red and her owners might have to clean in between her jowls with a Q-tip to prevent mold and yeast infections and whatever, but that doesn't mean she's ugly! Also, the website mentions that dogs can be "loving companions", no matter what they might look like, adding that they appear "to enjoy the adoration of the fans".

Chinese Cresteds have often been crowd favorites at the annual World's Ugliest Dog event. Monkey, a 6-year-old Brussels Griffon, and Icky, an 8-year-old unknown breed, were both saved from the homes of hoarders. It has been a part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma annually for 29 years.

A droopy-faced, 125-pound rescue dog named Martha was finally crowned the victor after a three-dog tie breaker based on audience response.
