Meet Peanut, the winner of the 2014 World's Ugliest Dog competition in Petaluma, California. Peanut is from North Carolina, where he was in a shelter for over six nine months after being abused and burned in a fire. God I hate people. I think if I ever get a terminal illness I'll become a vigilante animal abuser-abuser. Hell, I might even do it without the illness.
"He doesn't have lips anymore. His eyelids are also gone, and so he can't close his eyes so therefore his eyes water. The tears drain into his nose and so he has nice little snot bubbles because of it. So it's great, that adds to his character," Holly Chandler, Peanut's owner told CBS San Francisco.
"He's my baby. I guess I don't see him every day as being that ugly. But I guess the judges thought so," Chandler said.
Wait -- you don't think he's ugly? Then why'd you take him to the world's ugliest dog contest? That's like dropping off a skinny kid at fat camp. No, I think you know just how ugly he is. Still, great job giving Peanut a good home -- he deserves it. And so do all the other wonderful shelter pets out there.

Keep going for a couple closeups of the little chupacabra.
Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he entered his cat in the world's ugliest dog competition.
