To mark this special anniversary，this year's fair that was themed “Dog Days of Summer” featured among other things，including an exhibit featuring the contestants and winners from the last 25 years. As for the winner? Unlike last year，when he had flown in all the way from London，England， this year's title winner was Chico， California resident Walle， who beat out 29 other equally “ugly contestants” ．The refreshing part was that Walle，who happened to be a last minute entrant(参赛 者)， is not a nearly hairless， Chinese Crested Chihuahua or a mix of both breeds， which have been dominating the contest for many years now.Instead， he is a mutt mix—part beagle， part basset and part boxer.
The four?year?old impressed the judges with his giant head and humped back.As one of them put it，he looked as though he had been photoshopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals.It exactly represents the kind of natural “ugliness” they were looking for! Along with the title，the first time entrant received a cash prize of $1，500 as well as scheduled appearances on NBC's weekend Today on Sunday，the Today Show on Monday and the Jimmy Kimmel Show on Wednesday. Though the competition may seem unbelievable to some people，it is held just for fun and organized by an animal psychiatrist who not only vets the dogs before they enter the competition to ensure they are healthy， but also has a “pet” talk with them to ensure they are also happy.It is also important to remember all the contestants come from homes where they are loved because of their rather unusual looks.After all，beauty is in the eye of the beholder! 【解题导语】 在 2013 年 6 月 21 日举行的世界上最丑的狗的比赛上， 一条三个品种的杂 交狗赢得了“世界上最丑的狗”这个头衔。 1．What makes this year's winner of the contest special?

Senior__3.I have noticed that many students are no longer fond of practicing oral English.Even in classes，they inactively join in discussing，speaking English unwillingly.Doing exercises，in their eyes，becomes the only thing worth their time. This is definitely wrong.It's time that we are under much pressure because we are now，Senior Three students.But remember，we learn English not just for exams but for equipping ourselves for the future.It's shortsighted to ignore the importance of spoken English.What's the point of getting full marks without the ability to communicate with native speakers? My fellow students，what we need to do is to look forward.Exams are important but not everything.Let's open our mouths and enjoy speaking English. Thank__you__for__your__listening．
