Yoda, a Two Pound Chihuahua, Crowned The World's Ugliest Dog

They say beauty's on the inside. That's never been more true than at the 23rd annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest, which took place last night at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in Petaluma. 29 dogs, mostly from Northern California, competed for the distinction.

But the winner last night was Yoda, a two-pound Chinese crested-Chihuahua cross, whose owners originally thought she was a rat. Yoda won $1,000 and the 2011 crown as the World's Ugliest Dog.
