Yoda, a 14-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, is luckier than you’d think.
The pint-sized pooch was just named this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog, but at least he’s ignorant of his repulsive appearance. Unlike ghastly looking humans, Yoda doesn’t understand that the sight of him prompts nightmares. Ignorance is bliss, so if you’re hideous, you may as well be a canine.
Because our hearts go out to the poor little animals who have no control over their fate, we give you a slideshow of our favorite pictures from last week’s World’s Ugliest Dog Contest.
