Please add this link[edit]

I don't know why they came up this 25th anniversary thing because it's totally inaccurate and it really confused me because I entered my dog in the contest in 1979. Could someone please add this as evidence that the contest has been going on since the 1970s?: http://www.sonoma-marinfair.org/worlds-ugliest-dog-past-winners/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 156.202.12.126 (talk) 06:37, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Confusing sentence?[edit]

I do not understand this sentence from the current version of the article: "The overall winner for worlds ugliest dog has many names but the total winner is Shubit!!!" Perhaps this needs to be rephrased (or is a typo)? 68.193.180.113 (talk) 06:16, 13 November 2009 (UTC) bryan12603

Just DIA1122 (talk · contribs) pushing the limits of my good faith. I've reverted the Shubit rant. Again. Sigh. --Stepheng3 (talk) 08:23, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

Much of this article is directly plagiarized from this website: http://www.samugliestdog.com/pastwinners.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.248.175.142 (talk) 17:20, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

It appears that at least some plagiarism occurred in the other direction. For instance, the phrase "Scandal erupted during the 2006 World's Ugliest Dog Contest when an as yet unidentified person..." dates back to this edit in May 2006 which cited sources. Note that the samugliestdog.com page has a 2008 copyright date. Perhaps the samugliestdog.com webmaster copy/pasted the text from the English Wikipedia and failed to cite us? --Stepheng3 (talk) 18:09, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

cats are way better than dogs. even ugly cats look less ugly than dogs because cats are born cute and neat. dogs are born wild and they were one day huskies wich were close to being wolves.I knew this info from the encyclopedia book. :D
