Beauty contest for the dogs

Porterhouse is one hunk of a canine.

He wins the Beautiful Bulldog crown at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

The 4-year-old brown and white bulldog beat out 49 other dogs to take the title.

The judges looked for things like bloodshot eyes, bowed legs and, of course, plenty of slobber.

Porterhouse's owner, Erin Bell, says her dog is sweet, friendly and handsome.

The Beautiful Bulldog contest coincides with the Drake Relays, hosted for the 100th time this week by the Drake University Bulldogs.
