Wilma Was Robbed!

That indignation popped up in my e-mail from my colleague and friend Lori Durham, whose Wilma is the mascot of the Herald's early Sunday ''bulldog'' edition.

Attached was a link to a story out of Des Moines about a magnificent beast named Hannah crowned ''Most Beautiful Bulldog.'' The Herald ran her picture, in full regalia, in today's 5 Minute Herald.

Having seen the fabulous Wilma out and about yesterday, I can attest that she is equally regal and equally deserving of the title.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- To those who know her best, Hannah is the ultimate girly girl. She enjoys socializing in the neighborhood, wearing fancy outfits and pursuing a shoe fetish that would rival any Hollywood starlet.

But Hannah doesn't wear shoes - she eats them. Still, that didn't stop this 2-year old English bulldog from beating out 49 others to claim top prize in the 27th annual "Beautiful Bulldog" contest Monday.
