Hump Day Happy Hour
Toast With This Doggone Good DrinkBy Julie Fishman
The 23rd annual World's Ugliest Dog Competition is this Friday in Petaluma, Calif., and we're doggone excited to see which pup takes home the bittersweet title. Crooked teeth, bald patches and potbellies may keep these dogs out of Westminster, but the more unsightly, the better in this competition.
Ranging from so-ugly-they're-cute to so-ugly-they're-frightening, these pooches may not be Alpo coverdog material, but the winner will be rewarded with a $1,000 prize, international press and—most importantly—unconditional love from fans across the globe.
Honor these one-of-a-kind canines by toasting to your favorite pup with the "Camus Canine Reviver #2," a "hair of the dog" drink that'll leave you—just like Fido—begging for more.

1 oz. triple sec
1 oz. fresh orange juice
