World’s Ugliest Dog: What a cutie

I met Elwood yesterday, the 2007 World’s Ugliest Dog.

Elwood and his owner, Karen Quigley, visited Union Beach Memorial School to celebrate Elwood’s third birthday with several fourth-grade classes.

The kids were ecstatic to see Elwood, the All-American Mutt: A mix of Chinese Crested and Chihuahua.

The pup celebrated his third birthday with the students.

The students also collected various dog supplies, such as treats, dog food and toys, to donate to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Check out next week’s issue of The Courier for coverage of the event, which was also filmed by Animal Planet for use in the upcoming 2008 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest.
