Many pet owners think they are giving their pets more love when they sneak them an extra treat from the dinner table, but a new study shows that more than half of pets in the U.S. are obese—and their owners lack of moderation is to blame, according to the Association for Pet Obesity (APOP).

“While the general trend of overweight pets has remained fairly steady at around 50 percent, the number of obese pets is growing.

The 22nd annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest was held in Petaluma, California on Friday and 4-year-old Chihuahua mix Princess Abby Francis beat out dozens of fuglies (including last year’s winner Pabst) for the grand prize of $1,000.

Princess Abby was rescued by her owner Kathleen Francis only 5 months ago. Princess Abby was in danger of being put down, because of her physical deformities which the vet believe was caused by inbreeding. At Friday’s event, Kathleen said she was surprised that her dog was voted the fugliest of them all, “I don’t think she’s ugly at all. I think she’s the most beautiful dog.”
