By now I’m sure you’ve heard that Pabst is the winner of the 2009 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma. Aside from worldwide fame and glory, Pabst and his owner Miles Egstad won $1,600 from the Sonoma-Marin Fair, plus another $1,000 in prize money from sponsor House of Dog, a table of House of Dog “bling” and a year-round modeling contract with the doggie design house. Pabst also won a professional photoshoot with me, so he can show the world that ugly is the new beautiful.
We met the morning after the contest and despite the extreme heat (poor Pabst!) we had a great time. Pabst is modeling gorgeous collars and leashes from House of Dog like an old pro. I have a feeling I’ll be referring to these photos anytime I’m in a really crappy mood - Pabst just makes me happy!

When Pabst isn’t frowning like an old man, he actually has the sweetest doggie smile. Check out how long his bottom jaw is.
He’s also a dog of a million faces.
Adorable Happy Pabst:
You can really see HOW FAR Pabst’s underbite extends in this next photo. Celebrity judge Doc Halligan estimated it at almost 2 inches!
Congratulations Pabst, Miles and Veronica! Hope you have an amazing year as the World’s Ugliest Dog and we’re rooting for you down here in sunny Los Angeles!
