World's Ugliest Dog 2008

I was watching The World's Ugliest Dog competition on the Animal Planet channel the other day and... it's rather interesting.


Being that this was shown on Animal Planet, I didn't realise how outdated the show was. I googled it and read that the winner is different to what was shown and I found out that the show I watched was 2 years old! Talk about slow. Sheesh.

ARCHIE, 2006 Champion

I feel sorry that the doggies look the way they are, but I couldn't really say that they were ugly for some reason. The owners are so happy to have them that you sort of feel for them, you know. It's also obvious that the show is dominated by the Chinese Crested breed -- I guess being small, patchy and hairless really says something about non-beauty.

This is Gus, the 2008 champion of the World's Ugliest Dog contest.

Gus is a fighter who lost his leg to skin cancer and has undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Cancer aside, Gus is just your average one-eyed, three-legged, toothless, hairless dog.

Gus is so hairless that he puts the Chinese-crested to shame. No beautiful tail plume for him – his tail looks like it belongs on a rat. He lost his eye in a fight with the family cat

Gus is a beloved family pet, and his family understands the difficult task of weighing quality of life versus treatment issues with ill pets. Gus love lounging on the couch, growling at the cat, and eating his favorite Hungry Howie’s pizza.


I know one pooch who doesn't need to join that contest. His name is also Gus (short for Gustav), but we lovingly call him Gusgus (pronounced goose-goose.hehe!) ---

Mommy, I'm cute little doggie so why do we need to watch that crappy show???
