A Chinese crested's short snout, beady eyes and white whiskers earned it the title of World's Ugliest Dog at the annual contest in Petaluma. Competing for fame, $1,000 and a year's worth of dog cookies, Mugly won the honor Friday by beating out 28 other ugly dogs from around the world. The 8-year-old rescue dog from Britain will also be invited for a photo shoot and will receive a VIP stay at the local Sheraton. "I couldn't speak when they announced Mugly's name," said Bev Nicholson, the dog's owner. "I didn't know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog." It's not the first time Mugly has been recognized for his unattractiveness. Nicholson said he was named Britain's ugliest dog in 2005. The contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds receives worldwide attention, with reporters and camera crews from around the world traveling to Petaluma.
