Lucy Brown's slobber, sloth and bloodshot eyes helped her to the title of this year's Beautiful Bulldog.
The three-year-old, from Johnston, US, edged out 49 dogs to win the title at the Drake Relays sporting event in Des Moines, 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 Drake Relays.
Officials use the term "beautiful" loosely for the tongue-in-cheek pageant, now in its 32nd year.
"They're looking for that bulldog with bloody eyes and drool coming down from the mouth. Bowed legs - maybe a nice costume," said master of ceremonies Dolph Pulliam.
This year's entrants didn't disappoint, including bulldogs decked out in camouflage, angel wings and tutus.
