Zsa Zsa, the world's ugliest dog, dies days after winning competition

The English bulldog's owner, Megan Brainard, has confirmed that Zsa Zsa died peacefully in her sleep last night.

Zsa Zsa' winnings included $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY, where she and Brainard appeared on the "Today" show.

Zsa Zsa, the World's Ugliest Dog, has died just a month after winning the title.

"She knew she was special", Brainard told the Today show.

" Tropical storm Chris is predicted to become a hurricane and move north over the next few days". The hurricane is expected to strenghten over the next two days.

Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, delivered the sad news about the 9-year-old dog. "I picked Zsa Zsa up and took her outside and laid her down in the grass". "We were all saying our goodbyes".

"She's so handsome - ugly", Ms Brainard said after winning the title against some stiff global competition.

The dog won the ugliness title at a contest last month in Petaluma, California.

Zsa Zsa was about nine years old when she passed away, which is about the life expectancy for the breed.

"Her mother saw her lovely picture on pet finder and HAD TO HAVE HER!"

Zsa Zsa is known for her pink toenails and long tongue. She was one of 14 candidates and won over pets who had impressive qualifications, including some that had been featured in films, TV shows, music videos - and one who had it's own IMDB page!

While mean-spirited in name, the contest promotes advocacy and adoption for all dogs, regardless of how mangy the mutts may be.
