The 2017 World's Ugliest Dog Competition took place at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, CA this last Friday.  The old, the blind, the hairless all showed up to do their worst but only one would be crowned World's Ugliest Dog.

This year it was Martha, the very gassy and droopy 125-lb mastiff who ended up taking home the top honors.  She impressed judges with her sweet disposition, dangly jowls and lumbering gait that plopped down for a nap quite often laying on the floor like melted butter.

According to the judges, Martha pretty snored her way through her crowning victory,

“Do you know you just won the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest?” judge Kerry Sanders of NBC News asked of the sleepy pooch, per AP.

I’d gloat, but I need a nap,” Shirley Zindler, Martha’s handler, responded on her behalf.
