Aww! This is so sad!
Elwood, who was crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007, has sadly passed away. He was 8-years-old.
The canine's owner Karen Quigley said her adorably ugly pooch died on Thanksgiving morning after months of health problems, although the death was unexpected.
The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix had become something of a cultural phenomenon after winning his ugliest dog crown in 2007.
Since then, the pooch has appeared at hundreds of events, and also helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for animal rescue organizations and other animal care groups.
In fact, Elwood's owner Karen Quigley wrote a children's book based on her puppy called Everyone Loves Elwood. Its message is that it's okay to
Simon Cowell and his baby mama Lauren Silverman were spotted strutting their stuff in West Hollywood just yesterday.
The cute couple was snapped while taking their rescue doggies Squiddly and Diddly for a walk.
Those two pups are so super cute!!
Looks like they're helping Simon and Lauren learn how to co-parent together.
Those pups are the perfect tool because they're cute like a baby but less… fragile.
Lauren is absolutely glowing, she looks so good!
We can totes see that growing baby bump! She looks great!
And just look at how happy Simon is!
His little family is growing and it's curing his usual grumpiness!!
So amazing! Can't wait to see that baybay!!

We previously mentioned that an American Humane Association (AHA) monitor named Gina Johnson let slip that a tiger almost died while filming Life of Pi!
So even though the movie had a "No Animals Were Harmed" tag, that wasn't exactly true!
A tiger nearly drowned while swimming in a giant tank when he got lost trying to swim to the side.
Life of Pi director Ang Lee opened up about the incident, saying:
Today's Fan Pets of the Day are…
Bucky & Mojo!
TeddyHilton.com reader Chrissy sent us a pic of her cutie pooch and said:
"My fur-babies desperately want to be your fan pets of the day! Bucky is an eleven year old rottweiler/border collie mix that was given to me by my late husband Shane for an engagement gift in 2002. Her matching little sister Mojo is a three year old Chipin (min pin/ chihuahua mix) that Shane gave to me for my birthday the year before he died. They are great dogs and are so entertaining! For the anniversary of 9/11 this year, they dressed up as super heroes at day camp to honor the rescue dogs of 9/11."
Omg they are the cutest pups ever ever EVERRRR!!
They look like the sweetest dogs and total besties!
We absolutely love their matching super hero costumes! What a great way to honor the heroes of 9/11!

Ludacris’ role in the Fast franchise has grown over the years, but he’s remembered Paul Walker from the start.
The actor slash rapper posted a pic of the iconic Fast cast (above), and said:
Ah! Omg! This is so stinkin' cute!!
As if meerkats needed to be any cuter…
A meerkat at London Zoo got into the holiday spirit with a Christmas stocking!
The zoo has a magical Meet Santa experience and before the jolly man clad in red comes flying in on his sleigh, the animals all get gifts.
So all the meerkats got stockings with treats inside!
It's perfect because it's enrichment for them, because they're being stimulated and challenged by these foreign objects.
It's also double perfect because while they're being enriched, we get to watch them and go awwwwww!
Merry Christmas you cutie meerkats!
