Hairless mutt named ugliest dog
PETALUMA, Calif. — Elwood, a 2-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix, was crowned the world’s ugliest dog Friday, a distinction that delighted the New Jersey mutt’s owners.
Elwood, dark-colored and hairless — save for a mohawklike puff of white fur on his head — often is called “Yoda,” or “E.T.”
Elwood was competing for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. He placed second last year.
Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.
Woman branded during attack

He declined to identify the 38-year-old woman.
Two suspects in the attack — James H. Standridge, 34, and, Jackie L. Getz, 26 — were arrested in a domestic violence case in February 2006 after the woman answered officers’ questions about them. The investigation later led to the removal of a child from the home because of drug paraphernalia.
