Every year there’s a “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Usually the winner is ugly, but also kinda adorable in a way.
Not this time. This dog is just straight up ugly.
The 28th annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest was Friday night, and the winner was a 17-year-old Chinese Crested Chihuahua named SweePee Rambo.
She’s a small black dog who’s BLIND . . . she needs to wear diapers because she’s incontinent . . . she has a blonde mohawk . . . and she has a sore on her leg that was oozing pus during the contest.
Her owner is a 44-year-old guy named Jason Wurtz from Encino, California. He and SweePee won $1,500 . . . and he says it’s going to go toward removing a tumor in her mouth. See, there’s someone out there for everyone.

There are hundreds of restaurants around the country with extreme eating challenges. Usually you have to finish, like, a five-pound hamburger to get a t-shirt or something. Forget about that. THIS is a real prize.
A Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, New York called Don Chingon has a new eating challenge that’s probably the hardest in the world . . . but it definitely has the most lucrative prize.
If you can finish a 30-POUND BURRITO in one hour, they’ll make you an OWNER.
The burrito uses a tortilla with a diameter of about three-and-a-half feet. It’s stuffed with chicken, steak, carnitas, chorizo, cheese, rice, beans, and salsa. Oh, and you also have to drink a margarita that’s made with a ghost pepper.
You can’t take a bathroom break or throw up, and it costs $150 just to try. But if you succeed, you become a 10% owner of the restaurant . . . which could be worth some serious cash over time.
The team at Don Chingon says they felt like ownership was the only fair prize. Quote, “If you’re going to gain 25 to 30 pounds in a single sitting, you deserve real compensation.
“Some restaurants put your name on the wall . . . we’ll GIVE you the wall.”
I accidentally went grocery shopping on an empty stomach and now I’m the proud owner of aisle 10.
This is a pretty incredible reminder of how loyal dogs are. There’s a reason we happily spend $200 trillion on dog toys and leashes and crap every single year.
An 85-year-old guy in San Angelo, Texas named J.R. Nicholson was feeling dizzy a few weeks ago, and called 911 for help. So the paramedics came, loaded him into the ambulance, and took him to the hospital.
But they didn’t realize his 35-pound beagle named Buddy didn’t want to leave J.R.’s side.
Buddy hopped onto the little side step of the ambulance without any of the paramedics noticing . . . and just sat there, riding the ambulance, as it went to the hospital.
About 20 miles into the drive, another driver flagged them down and told them there was a DOG on the side of the ambulance. They didn’t really have a choice at that point, so they loaded Buddy into the back and took him the rest of the way.
J.R. stayed one night at the hospital and was released. And Buddy stayed with him the entire time.
