Pooch named Lucy Brown wins Beautiful Bulldog contest

Bulldog Lucy Brown's slobber, sloth and bloodshot eyes helped the precocious pup grab the greatest crown a drooling canine can ever dream of.

The three-year-old from Johnston, US, with a squat stance and slobber to spare, edged out 49 dogs to be named this year's Beautiful Bulldog for the Drake Relays in Iowa.

Lucy's owner, Nancy Brown, said: 'She just thinks that the world goes around her. You know, Queen Lucy.

Lucy Brown will make a series of public appearances and serve as the mascot for the 102nd Drake Relays, the prestigious track and field meet that starts this week at Drake Stadium.

Officials use the term 'beautiful' loosely for the tongue-in-cheek pageant, now in its 32nd year. Judges really are looking for the most adorably hideous bulldogs they can find, and perennially 50 of them show up to strut their stuff.
