A Few Words With Elwood's Fabulous Tongue

A Few Words With Elwood's Fabulous Tongue

Everyone was clamoring to chat Elwood up at this year's World's Ugliest Dog Competition! Now, maybe it was his bling-y collar, his trademark dangling tongue – it hangs out because he's got no teeth on the bottom left side of his mouth –, or because this was the reigning champion, 2007 World's Ugliest Dog. I caught up with Karen Quigley and her rescue pooch before the show started; coming all the way from New Jersey, the doggie's been quite busy in his year on top! There's a children's book, Everyone Loves Elwood, and celebrity appearances to promote the need to adopt shelter pets. I'd say the take-away message from this event is that all dogs, regardless of appearance, can find loving forever homes with fabulous people. Check out Elwood's flopping, lizard-like tongue flickering at his eye in this video clip when you

Isn't it true that Chinese Cresteds tend to lose their teeth when they get older? And that's why their tongues hang out of their mouths? Just wondering.

Ya know that dog isn't really ugly, his face has character and personality! Moreover when I first saw that photo I thought "Why in the world is PetSugar posting a photo of Miles Davis?" I swear I thought Elwood's photo was a photo of jazz great Miles Davis. ROFTLMAO!
