Dogs from around the world will descend on the Bay Area this weekend to compete for the coveted title of World's Ugliest Dog.
This year, a challenger from the United Kingdom will attempt to steal the award from one of our own Bay Area hopefuls. At the end of the day, only one winner will take home a trophy, $1,000, and a year's supply of dog cookies.
