Zsa Zsa

The English bulldog's owner, Megan Brainard, has confirmed that Zsa Zsa died peacefully in her sleep last night.

Zsa Zsa' winnings included $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY, where she and Brainard appeared on the "Today" show. "It's kind of like when she won [the World's Ugliest Dog contest]". "Sweetest dog I've ever met".

After her win, she was awarded $1,500 and flown to NY first class.

MI soybean farmers worry about bottom line in wake of new tariffs
Since 1996, when the US exported only $414 million worth of soy to China , the crop has sprouted an exponential growth in trade. Trump has continued to threaten Beijing with escalating tariffs on as much as $450 billion worth of Chinese goods.


Brainard told the Today show she drove 30 hours from her home in Anoka, Minn., to give Zsa Zsa the opportunity to participate in the contest, which is put on every year to raise awareness for dog adoption.

Her muscular, rounded front legs, crooked teeth, large underbite and floppy tongue won over the competition's judges, who granted her family the $1,500 prize for winning the contest.

"I'm still in shock", she said.

ANP’s Haroon Bilour, 19 others martyred in Peshawar blast
But many militants have escaped into neighbouring Afghanistan, from where Islamabad says they launch attacks back into Pakistan. Another party worker, Yaseen Khan, said a deafening explosion rocked the compound as Haroon Bilour shook hands with supporters.


The newly-crowned World's Ugliest Dog has died. Brainard says the dog was staying with her father and he found she had passed away when he got up in the morning. Zsa Zsa's fans even wore shirts with her face on them.

"She knew she was special", Brainard told the Today show. She beat a terrier with dreadlocks named Scamp to take home the win.

The contest sounds more negative than it is - its goal is to raise awareness of pet adoption and to show that all dogs are lovely in their own way, and worthy of love.
