The Bulldog Beauty Contest is so wrong on so many levels. Sure, the scholarship money is a compelling reason for a bulldog to enter a beauty contest, but the award is given strictly based on looks – and what kind of message does that send to young girl bulldogs? That if they don't live up to the impossible standard of clean upswept jaw, clear eyes and class-A wrinkles, they're not important? And let's just say that last year, a certain French bitch was clearly lip-synching to “Nine to Five.” These organizers should be ashamed.
