This is Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog who this weekend took home the top prize at the 30th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, California.
"Nine years young with a swaggering tongue, Zsa Zsa delivered a shower of slobber as she claimed this year's title," said a news release.
A function of the annual Sonoma-Marin Fair, it seeks to demonstrate "the pedigree does not define the pet." By raising awareness about the benefits of adoption, "the contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals," even those not blessed with Lassie's movie-star looks.
Many of the pups taking part in the contest were rescued from kill shelters or puppy mills, organizers say.
That includes Zsa Zsa, your 2018 queen, who spent five years at a puppy mill in Missouri before being purchased by the nonprofit Underdog Rescue.
Zsa Zsa resides in Anoka, Minnesota with her human Megan Brainard. Read the rest
There's no guarantee that the cat in your life won't cut you at the drop of a hat, but learning the correct way to pick one up might make it think twice before breaking off a shiv in one of your vital organs. Read the rest
My Great Pyrenees gets thirsty on long hikes. This dog-walking water bottle keeps him peppy and moving, cause when he decides to stop walking things get rough.
Great Pyrs do this thing when they get tired of walking where they become one with the Earth. My 120lb buddy, Nemo, just lays down and hugs our planet when he wants a break. Usually, he is thirsty, warm and just wants to cool off for a bit. I want to keep walking. Giving him a few laps of water from this portable dog watering bottle often does the trick, and he will slowly get back up and we get on our way.
Before I figured out Nemo wants water there would be very long, very frustrating for me but hilarious for other hikers, sessions of begging him to get up and go.
The Gulpy is easy to use.

Paul is a VERY good pig. Watch as, at his owner's behest, he cleans the heck out of his belongings, putting them back in his toy box, where they belong. I'd give so much if I could teach my dog to do this. Read the rest

My cat absolutely loves these $8 cardboard cat scratchers. They go straight into the recycling bin, so why spend a penny more than necessary?
I tried one of the $25 lounger-style cardboard cat scratchers and my picky cat wouldn't go near it. I put out a simple, flat and cheap one? Scratch city. My furniture and carpets are mercifully left alone while these get torn up every 4-6 weeks.
Last night, as I was rubbing the catnip into a new scratcher, my cat decided he wanted to be pet. He ended up pretty covered in catnip and rocketing around the house for 20 minutes.
