Hooray! It’s that time of year! Dlisted’s favorite pageant contest, World’s Ugliest Dog! The parade of beauty was held Friday night in Petaluma, CA.┬áI personally don’t like to use the word ‘ugly’ unless I’m talking about a celebrity, what a celebrity is wearing or someone that I hate, because it isn’t a very nice word. But, in the case of this contest, ugly means downright stunning and gorgeous. You can see cute puppies everywhere, but to be the world’s ugliest dog, that takes a level of uniqueness that money can’t buy! This year’s winner is Sweepee Rambo.
Sweepee is one hot piece! She weighs in at a svelte 4lbs, is 17 (almost legal!), blind in both eyes, wears a diaper and has bow legs. This is the third time Sweepee entered the competition, but it’s her first win. Last year she placed second behind the hunky┬áQuasi Modo. Finally it was her time to shine and this year she got the top spot, which USA Today tells us comes with a trophy and $1500! I never won the koosh ball I wanted at the fifth grade raffle, so I’m quite jealous of Sweepee’s luxurious prizes. Sweepee, on this day of celebrating diversity and love, to you I say, congratulations. May your reign be as bountiful as you are beautifully ugly.
