A Dog Just Won the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest Despite Not Really Being Ugly

I’m not one to say the FIX IS IN, but can we get an independent committee to investigate what happened this weekend at the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest in California?  Because something doesn’t smell right here.

Every year, the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest goes down at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds, just outside of San Francisco in Petaluma, California.  And this year, the winning dog is NOT UGLY.

The winner was a four-year-old beagle-basset mix named Walle.  And sure, he’s got weird, stubby legs that apparently make him walk funny…but other than that, he’s a normal-looking dog.  You might even say he’s CUTE.

We’d expect the World’s Ugliest Dog to be some kind of mangy, flea-ridden dog missing an eye and tufts of hair.  Not this guy.

The judges say they picked Walle as the winner out of 30 entrants because, quote, “This dog looked like he’s been Photoshopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals.”  I’m not buying it.

Here are some photos of Walle:

For comparison, here’s one of the previous winners:

And check out this slideshow the Huffington Post did of some of the contenders before the contest.  Notice Walle didn’t make their cut, probably because he wasn’t ugly enough.
