World’s Ugliest Dog Dies At Pigeon Forge

Finally I get round to pecking a post. Apologies for that. It’s been a while. Not laziness, just we’re all a bit thrown by the weather.

I realise most of you must think I’m weather obsessed but, the truth is, what else is there to be obsessed with if you’re a pigeon? It’s either the weather or the lack of seed. This year though, the weather is most definitely worthy of obsession. One day it’s boiling, the next it’s not. One day the air is like a wet blanket playing havoc with the feathers, the next it’s not. WTF? Don’t know whether I’m coming or going, particularly when it’s as windy as it was today. Almost ended up on the deck of a tourist bus. There I was, flying along minding my own business, when suddenly, whoosh – a massive gust kicks me up the arse and sends me hurtling towards the head of a balding Indian man enjoying the sights of London. Nightmare. Managed to recover my dignity just in time, luckily for him.

Mart suggested a mini-break would do us good. Get out of the windy city, till I pointed out wind wasn’t like rain and didn’t happen in isolated spots, but traveled sideways, meaning there was likely to be even more of it in the countryside where there aren’t any buildings getting in the way. Mart seemed surprised by this.

So, to some sad news. Miss Ellie, voted the world’s ugliest dog in 2009, has died aged 17 whilst staying at Pigeon Forge. Some say she had been showing signs of depression, but those reports remain unconfirmed.

To be honest, despite her charity work, living with a title like that must have been hard, justified though it was:


The stuff of nightmares.

RIP Ellie.

    Yikes she is ugly… It is one thing being ugly but why does she have to do that with her tongue… makes her look pretty damn stupid also… perhaps once she got the title she decided to live it to its fullest, by acting dumb also. Looks like something a cat would use as a clawing post…

    She’ll be a beautiful golden Labrador in her next life. Poor thing endured a lifetime of comments like that Sean.

    Shame on you … speaking ill of the dead …

    (I’M NOT UGLY btw, just feel sorry for her)

    Sean: You’re right. It’s a cat’s fantasy!
    Your pal

    Pigeon Rachel: She will, bless her. Or a pigeon, of course.

    I thought one of my friends back home in Aberdeen had the ugliest dog in the world, but nope Miss Ellie was uglier…very scary I wouldn’t have wanted to see that thing in the dark…
