7/22/2005: Ugly dog



Multiple people sent me this ugly dog photo, for which the pup involved won an Ugliest dog contest -- and rightly so. Sam is a hairless Chinese Crested, 14 years old, with cataracts, what looks like a skin condition...

...But Sam doesn't know or care. And that's why he's a Friday image.

Above all, what makes Sam special is that "he's so sweet," Lockhee says. Of her four dogs, Sam is her favorite.

"I've never had a dog this in love with me," she says, "And shortly after I rescued him (I took him in as a rescue), I was diagnosed with cancer. I had to be in radioactive isolation, where you're away from people for almost a week. But they let me take one dog. And I chose Sam. And he just made that time so much fun. He's so crazy. I've just never been this close to a dog before."



jinx  Friday Jul 22 12:51 PM

Yuk! Looks like someone fed it after midnight or something...



Tricoloreyes  Friday Jul 22 01:02 PM

Don't judge a dog by his crazy eye.

This dog wouldn't have to dress up for Halloween. He even has the crazy eye going for him. Looks like he has had a rough life on the streets, with a hard core drug habit. Then you read what the owner said about him and he reminds me of the wrinkled old lady who made my first apartment by myself enjoyable. She was blind and made the best oatmeal cookies. Like the ugly dog it was best she could not see herself. Everyone just saw her heart. Much like the owner of the dog just sees his heart. Still he is scary looking.

ummm... I think we now know the reason why you can't be near other people.


Tricoloreyes  Friday Jul 22 01:12 PM

That is just toooo funny!!



glatt  Friday Jul 22 01:16 PM

Yes. That is one ugly dog.



Queen of the Ryche  Friday Jul 22 01:28 PM

I think 'd try to gnaw my own foot off too. If I had a better dental plan.



lookout123  Friday Jul 22 01:56 PM

so that is what happens if you throw a NYC rat in a microwave.



Elspode  Friday Jul 22 02:01 PM

Anyone else reminded of Jabba the Hut's little pointy-eared pal from "Return of the Jedi"?



Hobbs  Friday Jul 22 02:15 PM

Hate to tell you this, but this is not a picture of a dog. It's a picture of my old Grampa Saully. Got to be. He had that same hair and crazy-ass grin.



wolf  Friday Jul 22 03:03 PM

How sad and geeky is it that I know the creature's name is Salacious Crumb?



lookout123  Friday Jul 22 03:06 PM

it isn't sad and geeky, at all. in fact, i'm glad you typed it because i've been sitting here using what little selfcontrol i have to keep from displaying my immense nerdness by typing it.

thank you wolf.

Just sayin'.



Queen of the Ryche  Friday Jul 22 03:38 PM

ooh John. With that humor, you are most welcome in the Cellar.



melidasaur  Friday Jul 22 04:00 PM

John... good one, dude.

To me, it looks like the dog was once stuffed by its beloved owner and kept on a shelf for prosperity. Then, the house caught on fire and the stuffed animal was found in the rubble... and the owner decided that it would have to keep the charred remains.



capnhowdy  Friday Jul 22 04:58 PM

mmmmmmmmmm................ deep fried dog.
I hope this dog isn't as miserable as he appears.
He looks really RADIOACTIVE. Without the isolation.



ferret88  Friday Jul 22 05:14 PM

Reminds me of a scene from FRIENDS. Someone has one of those hairless cats. Joey asks "What the hell is that?!??!" After he's told it's a cat, he asks "Why's it inside out?!??!"



ferret88  Friday Jul 22 05:19 PM

Correction:
After he's told it's a HAIRLESS cat...



Hobbs  Friday Jul 22 05:50 PM

Oh, yeah. Now I see it.

You were right the first time.
But welcome to the Cellar anyway.

Two wrongs make a right?


capnhowdy  Friday Jul 22 08:57 PM

IMO pussies just don't look right without hair om 'em. Makes you feel like you're doing something wrong.



Trilby  Friday Jul 22 11:23 PM

I think it's wonderful that the little dog is loved for WHO HE IS and not what we, as a demented, superficial, unwholesome, society, would have him be. He is the essence of beauty, the joy of truth, the very vessel of significance!

And no, I'm not high. I just finished JANE EYRE and I feel all...gushy!



Elspode  Friday Jul 22 11:39 PM

Those must the opening words of "Little Mongrels"...



Leah  Sunday Jul 24 07:15 PM

Poor dogs got a face only his mother could love. Actually I take that back, make that his whole body only his mother could love. Still cute though.

cute
adj. cut·er, cut·est

1. Delightfully pretty or dainty.

2. Obviously contrived to charm; precious: "[He] mugs so ferociously he kills the humor it's an insufferably cute performance" (David Ansen).

3. Shrewd; clever.
You're really stretching that one, Leah.


sandra77  Monday Jul 25 01:32 AM

That dog doesn't even look alive. He looks mummified.

Do you think that skin comes from running around without sunscreen??

Yeah, a face only a mother could love...and a father to throw stones at.


axlrosen  Tuesday Nov 22 03:13 PM

RIP, Sam.

World's Ugliest Dog dies at 14



Trilby  Tuesday Nov 22 03:51 PM

Sam, we hardly knew ye.



BigV  Tuesday Nov 22 06:34 PM

They just now found out he's dead?! Come on, people, come to class!



wolf  Wednesday Nov 23 02:27 PM

Any pictures of the new champion?

My coworkers were so entranced by the image that they set it as the wallpaper on the Crisis Director's computer.

The Crisis Director is a lady of somewhat delicate sensibility (not too delicate, of course. She's worked at our place for nearly 10 years now) and may well have had a freakout this morning.

I can't wait to find out.



kelliekd  Monday Nov 28 06:37 PM

umm..Wolf...I hate to break it to you...but...he died recently..sorry



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Nov 28 07:27 PM

She knows that, kelliekd. That's why she asked about the NEW champion.



Leah  Monday Nov 28 07:44 PM

I don't know about the ugliest dog but I certainly have the naughtiest dog in the world. Went over to my sisters house this morning and my sisters dog Lucy (Lucy the beagle) opened most of the Christmas pressies that were under the tree. It was rather funny but now I know what I'm getting (well it's chewed up ) We had to laugh, she was so cute sitting there amongst all the torn up Christmas paper and chewed up gifts.



chrisinhouston  Sunday Jun 24 06:22 AM

We have a new winner for the ugly dog contest!
