Susie Lockheed, beauty is more than skin deep. The press carried reports of
Susie who is the owner of a dog names Sam. He is a three time winner of the
“World's Ugliest Dog Contest” Sam is a 14-year-old pedigreed Chinese crested.
He is an unusual breed to begin with, but he has a multitude of problems. His
frame is hairless and covered with blackheads. He has brown warts and moles
all over him along with a large hernia lump. There are only a few white hairs
on his head. His right eye is a strange purple color from cataracts while the
other eye is white. But, Susie treats Sam like a king. He is pampered and petted
and has his own web site. Susie says, "I've never had a dog this much
in love with me. I really baby Sam, and kiss him a lot. He's a toad [that's]
going to turn into a prince."
