Sorry Mord, but your former avatar buddy has passed away... Sad



HANFORD, Calif. -- When a beloved pet dies, good manners usually dictate saying something nice about the departed companion.
And for Yoda, it was a compliment to say she sure was ugly.

Yoda won the 2011 World's Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair for her short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs.

The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died in her sleep Saturday. She was 15.

The 1.8-pound pooch had lived a rough life before Terry Schumacher found her abandoned behind an apartment building and mistook her for a rat.

The dog went on to bag $1,000 and a trophy 15 times her size when she won the contest held in Petaluma, Calif., last June. Yoda and
Schumacher became famous, appearing on national television.

Contest producer Vicki DeArmon said Yoda will keep the title until a new ugliest dog is crowned in June.

But Schumacher said she was "comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad, who loved her so much. Her memories will live on forever."

Sad It is always hard to see the great ones go. RIP, Yoda. Sad

BTW, my former Avatar was Sam, the most con-decorated Ugliest Dog EVER!

It is weird... the genes that control hair also control teeth and nail growth... that is why their teeth are crooked/missing and their tongues escape. Count how many toes/nails Sam has on his right paw! Shocked

Sam won the title in 2003, 2004 & 2005. He did not win any other contests, as he was recalled to The Warp November 18, 2005... probably to scare the bejeezus out of Tzeentch, who would NEVER expect such creature to be conceived.

On an interesting note, on 2006 "someone" hacked into the contest's Internet servers to rig the contest. I guess Tzeentch was not amused by Sam's arrival. Anyhow, after a do-over vote, the winner was Pee-Wee... a direct decedent of Sam. Talk about passing your ugly genes!
