        To be fair, he did put the joke warning in the icon ma'am.

          How is that a 'warning'? It's a disclaimer/fig leaf/excuse to spout whatever crap you please, rather like a :) after something dodgy. Tsk.

        Remember, this is Pigeon Forge, TN.

        Not only is 17 OK, it could even be a sister.

        Y'all come back now, hear?

    That's not an ugly dog.... *this* is an ugly dog.

    Didn't look all that ugly to me.

    How about this ugly-if not downright scary- one...

      @That's not an ugly dog.... *this* is an ugly dog.

      That is Sam, and he's been dead for a while too. He used to be the holder of the title. Miss Ellie is not so bad. Specially after seeing Sam:

      Anyway, Chinese Crested Hairless dogs are well poised to keep the title. When young, they are fine and cute, and I knew one who had a great personality too. But when they get old... The same mutation that makes them hairless affects the development of their teeth, so that does not help in the looks department.

        > That is Sam, and he's been dead for a while too.

        Was that photo taken *before* or *after* his unfortunate demise?

      It had already lost it's title, after breaking the rules. i.e. by becoming dead.

    What laboratory gave birth to that....

    Out of 100,000,000 sperm THAT was the fastest???

    1. mittfh

      What about the egg?

      After all, it's a combination of sperm DNA *and* egg DNA... do we have pics of the sire and dam?

      Presumably both had their fair share of recessive genes...
