65 Odd Dog Innovations

From the World's Ugliest Dog to Plumed Pooches

— June 4, 2010 — Lifestyle
Dogs are man’s best friend, and what better way to honour the death of the world’s ugliest dog than by creating a cluster of odd dog innovations?

The world’s ugliest dog recently passed away at the age of 17. Miss Ellie, as some of you may have known her, was a bug-eyed Chinese Crested Hairless dog, who won Animal Planet’s ‘World’s Ugliest Dog’ competition in 2009. Enjoy Miss Ellie's winning moment--and other odd dog innovations--above.
