    I was reading the paper and came across this article! Its special now because we own a chinese crested! (But he ain't THAT ugly!)

    Gus, a pedigree Chinese Crested from St. Petersburg, Fla, competes in the 2008 World's Ugliest Dog Contest held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif. Friday June 20, 2008. Gus won top pedigree and beat out the past "Ring of Champions" to take home the grand prize. (AP Photo/The Press Democrat, Crista Jeremiason)

    PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) — Gus the dog has three legs, one eye and no hair, except for a white tuft on the top of his head. He's a real winner.

    The pedigree Chinese crested won the World's Ugliest Dog contest on Saturday at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Northern California.

    His owner, Jeanenne Teed, brought Gus all the way from St. Petersburg, Fla., to compete for the dubious distinction

    After the excitement of the moment, Teed characterized her dog's reaction: "Well, I think right now he's ready for a nap."

    The Chinese crested breed is a popular choice in this annual contest. Last year's champ, Elwood, was a Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix.

    Gus' owner won $500 and will be flown to New York to appear on "CBS This Morning." The event will be aired on the Animal Planet network in October.

    I have seen this on T.V. The world's ugliest dogs is a cute show. How's your doggie, it's the one you got off of Robin right? The little dachshund I got is doing great.

    He's doing great! I take him to work with me now, so he's not as shy! He's so lovable, even if he is a little "UGLY" LOL here's a pic of Pippin:
