"The judges weren't looking for the prettiest mutt in the mix. No, they wanted to see drool, bloodshot eyes and bowed legs… and costumes don't hurt either." [CBS News]
I have a habit of kissing dogs on their wee little noses. This proves hazardous to my health when I'm faced with bulldogs, pugs, shih tzus, etc. I usually wind up getting licked on the lips before I ever make it to the nose.
That said, I would like to bestow smooches on all of these bulldoggy noses.
