Celebrating the Ugly Dog

While we know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and true beauty is about what’s on the inside, June 20 is Ugliest Dog Day. So we couldn’t help but celebrate dogs that are…well…so ugly, they’re cute.

 

Although a dog’s looks are defined by their genes, they’re all part of the same species that has been manipulated by man for hundreds of years. What on earth have we done?! The results are pretty out of this world.

 

But what exactly makes an ugly dog? The answer to that is hard to define. Perhaps its similar to the way we define beauty in humans? Symmetry and health contribute to our perception, so perhaps the lack of those things helps us define ugly? Perhaps, like humans, our imperfections are sometimes our most endearing traits.

 

Often, dogs that are part Chinese crested and hairless come up pretty quickly when thinking of the ugliest. But when it comes right down to it, maybe its just a gut feeling (pun intended). But they are all equally deserving of our love.
