This is Tostito. He is around 13 years old and has no teeth, but very loved and could very well win the World's Ugliest Dog Contest!

Tostito's person is Molly Horgan from Falmouth and she is trying to get to Petaluma, California to represent Maine in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest. Tostito is one of only 9 dogs in the contest, and this poor little guy has a great shot!

Before you start thinking that this contest is about making fun of these dogs - it's not!

It's about

...having fun with some wonderful characters and showing the world that these dogs are really beautiful!  The contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals and the benefits of adopting. Many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills, to find loving homes in the hands of those willing to adopt.

We met Tostito and Molly and Sami in the studio this morning!



Molly can't make it to California without some financial help. And to add urgency, the contest is June 21st! Holy cow (or dog) that's soon! I know there are a lot of great causes to give your hard earned money too - but sometimes, a little ugly dog needs some love too.

Tostito says thank you and good night.
