They're so ugly, they're cute. Several pooches will compete to win the title of Ugliest Dog this week.

This is the 26th year for the World's Ugliest Dog Contest, which takes place Friday in California.

Contestants will be judged on first impressions, unique features, personality and audience reaction.

For fun, people can vote online. However, it does not determine the winner of the Official Ugly Dog Contest. Peanut, who no longer has hair on much of his body, is leading the pack in unofficial online votes so far.

Online voting will close at 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 19.
