In the world of dog competitions, there are some things that are givens: locks, safe bets, lead-pipe cinches, sure things. You know that an English pointer is probably going to win the bird dog national championship at Ames.
You know that at any given AKC retriever field trial that a Lab will probably win the all-age open. And you know, you just know, that when it comes to the annual World's Ugliest Dog championship, that a Chinese Crested is going to be the odds-on favorite to win it all. Because let's face it, those dogs are just freakin' hideous.
