DES MOINES--It was all about putting your best paw forward at Drake University today.
Four year old pup Huckleberry was crowned this year's Most Beautiful Bulldog.
For 34 years the contest has been kicking off relay's week at drake. Huckleberry competed for the title in 2010, only to walk away empty– pawed. That changed today when he strutted his stuff for a second time.
Owners say they couldn't be happier.
"He started growing into his personality a couple years ago," said owner Stephanie Hein. "We are just so proud of him, so thankful to be honored."
Huckleberry beat 46 other dogs to don the crown and cape. Overall he seemed rather unfazed by all the attention. After winning Huckleberry did get to enjoy a 'dog– friendly' cake.
