RIP: Yoda, World’s Ugliest Dog Champion

Our condolences to Terry Schumaker, whose beloved Yoda passed away last week at 15. Just last June, the 1.8 lb Chihuahua / Chinese Crested Mix won first place in Petaluma‘s World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. Even before that she was well-loved by her owner, Terry, who had found her abandoned behind an apartment building and took her in. Glad there’s big-hearted people like that to love the not-so-conventionally-cute creatures of the world.

Video: World’s Ugliest Dog Contest 2011 Highlights

 

Here’s what you missed at the annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair in Petaluma. If you’ve seen the awesome Worst In Show documentary you’ll recognize many of the ugly dogs (and their owners).

Contrary to their gnarly appearances all are healthy and super-loved by their owners.

Not just another quirky Petaluma event (they’ve got tons) it also serves as a great case for pet adoption. Every animal deserves a good home, “ugly” or conventionally cute.
