Yoda, the World's Ugliest Dog, Passes Away

by at . Comments

Sad animal news today. Yoda, a Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix and the reigning winner of the World's Ugliest Dog crown, has passed away. She was 15.

Yoda earned the prestigious award in June 2011 at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California. For her dogged (BOO!) pursuit of the honor, Yoda won $1,000!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or something ...

World's Ugliest Dog

R.I.P. YODA: A dog so ugly, it's downright adorable!

In an email to the Hanford Sentinel, Yoda's owner Terry Schumacher writes, "Say a prayer today 4 my YODA... She passed away last night in her sleep."

"I will miss her funny little ways! But comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad, who loved her so much! Her memories will live on forever!!!"
