    awww, how cute!!!

    AP

    The Chinese Crested dog "Elwood" appears at the 2007 World's Ugliest Dog Contest.

    PETALUMA, Calif. Elwood, a 2-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, was crowned the world's ugliest dog Friday, a distinction that delighted the New Jersey mutt's owners.
    Elwood, dark colored and hairless save for a mohawk-like puff of white fur on his head is often referred to as "Yoda," or "ET," for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters.
    "I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived," said Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley, a resident of Sewell, New Jersey.
    Quigley brought Elwood out to compete for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. Elwood placed second last year.
    Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.
    Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," said Quigley.
    "So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him."
    Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.

    Was ever meant for heaven's light!"

    Okay...that's a bit cruel. But...was anyone else thinking that?

    I can't support the whole ugliest dog craze. What's to stop someone from mutilating a dog to make it more ugly so they can win a contest?

    His name fits him perfectly!

    No offense, of course to any Micechatters named Elwood.

    What's up with the tongue anyway? Anyone know if this is a common trait among Chinese Crested's? It seems I've seen several photos of other dogs with the same hanging tongue to one side.

    Re: awww, how cute!!!

    I doubt they'd let mutilations into the contest...

    Many times (such was the case of the long-time champ that died only a year or two ago), the dogs are like that because of a medical disorder. Therefore, I see the contest as a way for the owners of these very ugly dogs to take care of their dogs with the prize money. It is quite a burden to have an animal with serious health problems -- if the owners put the money toward showing the dog a better life, I'm all for it.

    How can you resist a Yoda face, with a Gremlin hairstyle and a Gene Simmons Tongue?

    This is why I not only hate dogs, but these kind of contests.

    Just saw on our local news, the owner says the dog has no teeth on the left side and his tongue won't stay in his mouth.

    My dog Minnie was a chiuhuahua X silky, and she lost her teeth many years ago. Her tongue hung out the side of her mouth and when she licked, her tongue would tend to go sideways. She was 16 when she passed away, and I just assumed that she had a small stroke at some stage
