World’s ugliest dog dies
Yoda, a 1.8-pound female Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix passed away Saturday, at age 15.
“Say a prayer today 4 my YODA,” Yoda’s owner, Terry Schumacher of Hanford, California, said in an email, according to the Hanford Sentinel.
“She passed away last night in her sleep. I will miss her funny little ways! But comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad, who loved her so much! Her memories will live on forever!!!”
Yoda won the dubious, but much sought after honor at the 23rd annual contest held last June at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma.
Contest officials say the title will remain in Yoda’s name until a new ugliest dog is crowned in June.
Schumacher found Yoda behind an apartment building and, after first mistaking her for a rat, took her into her home.
