I have serious concerns about this 'Ugliest animal competition. I think there are actually 1 or 2 people who compete in this competition and have bred from thier ugly pets to try to win more than once. The problem with that is that the animals involved may actually be suffering from thier 'ugliness' because of genetic problems. The tongue that won't fit in the mouth for instance must be very uncomfortable and possibly get dry and cracked. Breeding for 'ugliness' is as bad as breeding for pushed up noses. The likes of inbred chinese crested should be banned from the competition

There are no ugly animals...only ugly and mean-spirited people.

Beauty is most firmly in the eye of the beholder, and any human who calls a dog "ugly" needs to look into the mirror, for animals unlike numerous humans are beautiful within!!! Animal Whisperer Rosi Caswell
