On Saturday, this pinnacle moment of overt shallowness and die-hard canine competition returned to us when the 9-year-old English Bulldog Zsa Zsa was crowned "World's Ugliest Dog" at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California.
A bulldog named Zsa Zsa won a coveted honor on Saturday: she's this year's ugliest dog.
Dogs in the annual competition flaunt their imperfections - some have hairless bodies, others have lolling tongues. The dogs strutted their stuff for a panel of judges who selected the very finest specimen from the monstrous mutts.
The victor takes home $US1500 ($1900). Her mother saw her handsome picture on pet finder and HAD TO HAVE HER!

Last year a three-year old Neopolitan Mastiff named Martha took the crown.
Rather than poke fun at the dogs, the competition celebrates canines in all their shapes and sizes, many of whom, like this year's victor, come from shelters or puppy mills.
For almost 30 years, the World's Ugliest Dog (r) Contest has been a testament that the pedigree does not define the pet. Dogs of all breeds and sizes have warmed our hearts and filled our lives with unconditional love.
Good causes underline the World's Ugliest Dog awards.
