Meet Peanut. George Nikitin / AP The 2-year-old mutt from North Carolina took top honors at this year's World's Ugliest Dog contest, held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California on June 20. Though he's healthy now, the little champion was burned as a pup, and his owner hopes the victory will raise awareness about animal abuse. George Nikitin / AP His owner also plans to use the $1,500 prize to pay for other animals' veterinary bills. Congrats, P! Blue is definitely your color.
