Pigeon Forge-Comedy Barn's Ugly Dog Winner?

I recently posted about dog lover, trainer and Pigeon Forge Comedy Barn star Dawn(Elberson)Goehring and her 9 - oops, make that 11 precious dogs. My prior blog post did state that Dawn had 9 dogs - well that's how many she currently has in the Comedy Barn show but she does have 2 others and a pot bellied pig "in training". This story, however is only about one very special member of the Comedy Canines - her name is Ellie or Miss Ellie. She is on a quest to become the Winner of the 2007 World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma CA.

Please click the link below, go to the website and VOTE for Ellie - scroll to bottom of the page to find Ellie, then click - add your email and send your vote... Please forward this to all your friends - we need to get an Ugliest Dog Campaign going here to beat out last years winner and help Dawn and the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge have a Tennessee WINNER in 2007 !! http://www.yourfair.org/uglydogvote07.shtml

Ellie is a 10 year old rescued Chinese crested hairless. After Dawn adopted another hairless, she was asked by the owner to keep an eye out for a home for Ellie. Dawn-being a "pushover" for all dogs decided to take her and see if she could find a home. That was four years ago and the rest is history! She likes to gum the other dog's hind legs-yes "gum" because she has no teeth in the front of her mouth. That is why her tongue hangs out.

Dawn says - "This dog is the "other woman" to my husband. He fell in love with her before he fell in love with me! She was even at our wedding!" How can we let Ellie and Dawn down - GO VOTE http://www.yourfair.org/uglydogvote07.shtml At last count, Ellie had 214 votes but Pee Wee Martini had 906 to lead the pack for now - Please ask everyone on your email list to VOTE - Thanks from Ellie and me!
