Ms. Brainard along with her family drove 30 hours coming from Minnesota to California to enter Zsa Zsa from the competition, she said.
Despite the contest’s name, Zsa Zsa tried to look presentable for the occasion: She got a pink manicure along with wore a sparkly pink collar. Still, she could not hide her droopy jowls along with crooked teeth coming from the judges.
although Ms. Brainard said she believed the idea was also Zsa Zsa’s personality in which won over the judges. “She was eating part of a Slim Jim on the table along with just sneezed all over them along with was drooling on them,” she said.
Last year, a 125-pound Neapolitan mastiff with red eyes, uncontrollable drool along with baggy skin took the title. The year before in which, first place went to a blind, 17-year-old Chinese crested Chihuahua.
Zsa Zsa’s victory comes which has a $1,500 prize along which has a hot pink trophy in which is usually more than once her height.
