'World's Ugliest Dog' Zsa Zsa from Minnesota passes away

Dead English bulldog Zsa Zsa

Zsa Zsa's 15 minutes in the limelight are over: the copiously drooling English bulldog named the World's "Ugliest Dog" just weeks ago has died.

The 9-year-old pooch passed away in her sleep Monday night, her owner Megan Brainard, told the Star Tribune. He says she appeared fine the day before, so it was a shock.

The World's Ugliest Dog title holder died early in the morning. "Sweetest dog I've ever met".

Zsa Zsa's family drove about 30 hours to California last month to enter her in the Ugliest Dog pageant, where she beat off 13 competitors to take home the trophy and $1,500 (~R20,200). "We were all saying our goodbyes and Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss". She named the dog in honor of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. The dog had previously been rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri when she was 5 years old, according to the newspaper.

Zsa Zsa' winnings included $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY, where she and Brainard appeared on the "Today" show.
