'Huckleberry' Wins Beautiful Bulldog Contest At Drake University, Des Moines (PICTURES)

A bulldog named Huckleberry has won this year's "beautiful bulldog" contest.

Huckleberry walked away from the contest last year empty-handed, but this year charmed the judges with his specially made Forrest Gump outfit.

The competition, now in its 34th year, is held at Des Moines' Drake University, where the mascot is a bulldog.
