Not fair. Ugly dogs are cute.

It's almost unfair to let Chinese Cresteds in the contest.

What's with the tongue hanging out the side of the mouth? Is it because she's old?

Agreed. You could only call them "not hideous" at the best of times.

Why am I not surprised it's a crested? It sorta makes the whole damned contest pointless if the same breed wins every year.

Wait, the Boxer with the underbite beat out the Chinese crested? But they're both wearing 1st place ribbons and won identical prizes?I don't get it. Article is confusing.

Maybe there's a special category in the contest for just Chinese Cresteds since they always win these damn things?

I like the boxer too. But, have you ever felt a chinese crested? It's pretty nasty. A bit warm and rubbery, not at all what you'd think it would feel like. A hair-less cat is at least cool and exactly what you expect. (repulsive)

wiki:
Cresteds have what is called a "primitive mouth". This means that most of their teeth are pointy like their canines. Hairless varieties of the Cresteds can be prone to poor dentition. Poor dentition may include missing or crowded teeth and teeth prone to decay when not properly cared for. Most dogs of the Puff variety have few, if any, dental defects.

For some reason I look at the first pic of that dog and think of Carol Channing.

What inbreeding? It looks like all you have to do to make a Chinese Crested is feed a Mogwai after midnight.

This seems to be a common defect for a lot of "toy" dogs.

I miss my Crested. He was pretty much bald except for a mohawk and his toes/tail.

The Chinese Crested won the "Purebred" portion of the contest. She was the ugliest purebred dog in the competition. So she's won the title of "World's Ugliest Purebed Dog"

The Boxer was the OVERALL winner; he obviously won the mixed breed and when put against the Crested, beat her score and won the overall title of "World's Ugliest Dog" aka: he's the king of all ugly pooches.

This, my dear friends, is how you WIN one internet.

World's Ugliest Dog Contest? Bah! There is no such thing as an ugly dog (or cat).
 
2009-06-28 05:03:04 AM  
As far as the tongue thing goes...

Chinese Cresteds are prone to having really soft teeth. They rot and fall out, even in young dogs. With no teeth to hold the tongue in it just flops out.

Some dogs with overbites or underbites can have this problem too, though generally not as, umm, pronounced as the toothless ones. That's why you'll see brachy dogs like pugs with some tongue sticking out the front.
