World's ugliest dog dies after battle with cancer.
My daughter and I watched the World's Ugliest Dog competition, and really loved the human interest stories.
One man brought his spectacularly ugly dog, Rascal, to visit a Girl Scout troop. The girls were recoiling in horror. The man asked, "How many of you would like to have a dog like Rascal?" Not a single hand went up. Then the man told Rascal's story and invited the girls to notice how soft his skin was, how good-natured and friendly and playful he was. At the end of the visit, he asked, "How many of you would like to have a dog like Rascal?" Every hand shot up. Rascal had won them over.
A great lesson.
So, rest in peace, Gus. And kudos to all who love the ugly dogs.
