Sad news (and freaky!)

Sam, 3 time winner of "the Word's Ugliest Dog" contest, has passed away. He was 15 years old. Owner Susie Lockheed said she initially was terrified of Sam when she agreed to take him in as a rescue dog. Although she fell in love with him, his appearance repulsed her then-boyfriend and prompted the man to break up with her.

Later, however, Sam became a matchmaker by bringing together Lockheed and her current beau, who saw a picture of the two on an online dating site. er, ok.
You know, one of our art professors back in undergrad had a cat that makes Sam look like the cutest thing ever. I still have nightmares of watching that frankenkitty.
*Sam is survived by his younger bro, Salacious Crumb.
