Hundreds of competitors kicked off the annual Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa this week and some had more than two legs.

As part of the week long event that involves relays, distance running, pole vault and other field competitions there's one event that involves lots of strutting, smiling and slobbering!  The 5th Annual Beautiful Bulldog Contest.

As always, a picture is worth . . .
