Martha, a 3-year-old Neapolitan Mastiff, took first prize at the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, held annually at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California. It was something of an upset—older, smaller, often hairless dogs tend to win these. But Martha reportedly impressed the judges by farting and flopping down on the ground instead of walking the runway. A dog after my own heart.
“She’s a 125-pound, drooling, snoring, gassy, loud and silly girl,” said Shirley Dawn Zindler who is fostering Martha.
Of course, all the dogs are winners. Let’s meet some good dogs.
