When Susie Lockheed of Santa Barbara, California, adopted "Sam" six years ago, she never knew that the ugly dog would cause the breakup of her relationship. The dog, who won the Sonoma-Marin County Fair Ugliest Dog Contest the last three years straight, was just too ugly for the boyfriend to handle. So he left. And now, unfortunately, Sam has left too, passing away at the age of 14 on Friday, November 19, 2005. And while Sam caused a breakup, he also caused love to blossom again. Lockheed started doing online dating and it was a picture of her and the dog on an online dating service that attracted her current boyfriend. No word on whether another "adoption" is in the works.
