British contender vies for World's Ugliest Dog crown

Monday, June 18, 2012

The North Bay's annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest is getting its first contestant from across the pond.

Celebrity pooch Mugly and his owner, Bev Nicholson, arrived from Britain on Monday. Mugly, an 8-year-old Chinese crescent, has already been named Britain's ugliest dog. He's the first-ever British entry in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest, held every year at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in Petaluma.

Mugly might have some stiff competition though. Icky, from Davis, is also vying for top dog honors. And Icky's owner, John Adler, has high hopes.

The contest is this Friday and first prize is $1,000.

Watch the video clip above for Wayne Freedman's full report on this year's contenders.
