I saw that dog on the telly a few months back and I thought it's owner (a beauty therapist apparently) was so sweet about how she felt about her pet. I'm sure she's real sad about it passing on.

She is, take a look at her website http://www.samugliestdog.com/
There are many upset people on the blog.
I heaven't been tracking this all my life for the record; today was the first time I had ever been to the site - I swear!

That's sad about Sam, but wow it was almost painful to look at.

Here's a good runner for the world's ugliest cat. Funny - him and Sam could be brothers...

I remember posting in Sam's thread when he first won the "Ugliest Dog" competition in the summer.

I'm not really surprised that he died. There was obviously something wrong with his health.

He did have a few health problems towards the end, but I think overall he was pretty healthy. He lived nearly 15 years old, for dog, that ain't bad.

I made that picture my desktop for a couple of hours. I forgot I did that, and when I closed a couple windows that thing was staring at me. I actually flinched. :eek:

Right behind you.
I remember seeing that thing in the picture association thread. It was scary then. It's scary now. Cross that with a horse and that's how I picture the thestrals from Harry Potter (book 5) look.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I've had a few dogs and I don't think any of them lived that long.

ok first of all, my heart goes out to that poor dog....I would have loved it no matter what too. Sometimes being that ugly makes it even cuter in a way! Oh well, I just think it is sad to hear it died. I saw a picture months ago in the news.

And here is a funny pic of "why the dog left home"...I received this in an email one time..TOO FUNNY!!! I had a cat actually named BIG KITTY, but this one is the biggest kitty ever!! ;)

The worlds ugliest cat!

Isn't it cute. I'd take that over the dog any day. And I hate cats, I'm a huge dog person.

He must have finally looked at the mirror.
Must've been a poodle sitting next to him at the time, his final thought

Sam was my dektop picture at work until recently - sad to hear off his passing.
Was? Now, all the more reasons to keep a picture of Sam on your desktop for perpetuity.
