Ugly Dog Contest



Who doesn’t like an ugly dog contest?

It builds both self-esteem

and give us something to point at and laugh.

So there I was at the ugly dog contest pointing and laughing.

With my dog.

The first dog I ever actually owned.

Only she wasn’t laughing.


This led me to believe that she was absorbed

in the judging of the contest.

Many people had chosen humiliating names

for the ugly dog contestants.

Some had them do humiliating ugly dog tricks.

One ugly dog spun in a circle as he tried to sniff his own butt.

He came in third.


When I got home I took a nap on the couch.

I awoke to my dog and the ugly dog contestants

pointing and laughing at me.

What a great surprise to be awaken

to an encore performance in my own home.

I knew I was in for a treat as one contestant

approached me to perform a humiliating dog trick

raising his hind leg.


Boy, this was going to be great.
