Every summer at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California, a panel of qualified judges anoints one very special canine the World's Ugliest Dog. This year's winner was Pabst, a boxer mix with a wicked underbite. Despite his unfortunate title, when you look at Pabst's victory photos, you feel an almost insurmountable urge to smooth his bulging brow and scratch behind his perky little ears. That's one great thing about dogs: Even the ugly ones are adorable. Another great thing about dogs: They need to be walked regularly. So if you happen to make a habit of strolling past in the evening and you happen to spy an attractive stranger taking his best friend out for the nightly dog-park pee, odds are you'll see him again very soon. And when you do, you won't have to rack your brain for a good conversational opener. Instead, just walk over to his dog and coo, "Oh, what a handsome fella!" Nobody has to know (yet) that you're really not talking to the dog. The Central West End Dog Park has gone above and beyond its duty as Your Own Best Friend, though, by providing free coffee on Thursday nights from Beans for Hope, which is right across the street. Just think: You can go from Meet Cute to Coffee Date in less than an hour with the assistance of your adorable new furry friend!

Who voted??? Single men trying to attract single women..Our park is overflowing with women. We relax, we chill, but this definitely isn't the place to find single men. This "Best Of" award has sparked lots of dating conversations.

As one of the 4, I fully support this being rated the best place to meet single guys! The guys there are well educated and animal lovers too and we have friends! Sorry Amy and Jen, but I welcome any ladies who read this to come visit!

I have been going to the CWE dog park for a year and a half. I am not sure who voted, but I would invite anybody especially the writer of the article to actually come to the dog park--it would be a great place to meet single women. The majority of us are well educated single women--we are lawyers, doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, advertising execs, and IT execs.

We laughed over the article at the park while we counted the number of single men we have seen at the dog park in the last year--we came up with 4--yes four men that are single.

So, maybe we could rewrite the article as the best place to meet single, well educated intelligent women in St. Louis. We would totally welcome single guys and their dogs--they just do not come. . . . So, if anyone reads the article and wants to join to meet single men--this is not the place to come, but for all the single men wanting to meet fantastic women of all ages--the CWE dog park is the place to be!
