World’s Ugliest Dogs Take a Bow (Wow)

Congratulations to this year’s winners of the World’s Ugliest Dog Competition, which rewards dogs for looking a bit, um, ruff around the edges.

Behold sassy Miss Ellie, who claimed the coveted “World’s Ugliest Pedigree Dog” and “Canine Most Resembling Candy After an All-Night Margarita Bender” titles.  Meanwhile, there was an — GASP! — upset for the winner of the overall title:

Although Pabst, a boxer mix, may look like he just swallowed some bad Szechuan Chicken, he is actually overjowled, er… overJOYED to have been crowned the World’s Ugliest Dog of 2009.

Owner Miles Egstad says Pabst was rescued from an animal shelter as a puppy and named after an American beer for his “bitter beer face.”  Awwww.  The dog has a two-inch underbite, a large scar from a burn on his stomach and nails which grow in odd directions — or, as I like to call them, “beauty marks.”

Pabst’s victory was an upset –- the first place usually goes to a hairless Chinese Crested dog.

This PBR is for you, Pabst!

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
