On Friday the Sonoma-Marin Fair hosts the 2013 World's Ugliest Dog contest. Roughly 30 mutts, pugs and Chinese crested dogs will vie for the title and $1,500. KRCB reporter Danielle Venton visited one of the dogs preparing for the contest, Grovie of Santa Rosa, and files this report.

The event, in its 25th year grabs headlines from around the world and was recently the subject of a documentary "Worst In Show."
