Dogs, Dogs, Dogs

Peer sent these photos in. What can I say? They speak for themselves. This blog is making develop an affection for pet owners who take on such uglies.

Thanks for the pooches, Peer.

The last dog looks like yoda. A crotchety, unshaven yoda.

Ugly has more personality than cute.

Cute breaks down to a few basic traits, which can be codified into "rules." Ugly embraces everything that isn't the norm.

Mind you, a lot of wrinkly, big-eared dogs get that "Yoda" tag.

Jack, I like your assessment of ugly, especially your comment on the degree of personality.

I think it takes more effort to pull off a good ugly than a good cute.

It's certainly tougher to be ugly. When I was a kid, there was this big cat in the neighbourhood, named "Heifetz."

He looked like he'd been mangled by a dog: one eye, broken tail, snaggly fangs. All the kids were scared of him.

But once, I came up to him, and petted him, and he was purring and as affectionate as any other kitty. Still scary, but a great cat.
