Even if your dog is not from Asia, giving them a Buddhist name probably won’t make them feel calmer and more collected, but it sure can't hurt. This Chinese Crested Chihuahua got her name from the famous Jedi Master on Star Wars before she won the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest in 2011.
The 14-year-old punster beat 50 other dogs to win the title at a contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair. Yoda’s owner, Terry Schumacher from Hanford, California said that she found the tiny pooch behind her apartment building and thought she was a rat at first.
Schumacher said that Yoda was a funny and friendly little pooch with a big personality and loved to sit in her lap. She lived a long life and at least the last couple of years of it were great since being found and rescued in 2010 by Schumacher.
In her last year, she was busy being famous, and she even visited the Today Show with Matt Later, winning over the hearts of people all over the world. Schumacher named her little cutie Yoda because she resembled the character on Star Wars, but she also realized how perfect the name was after she realized that Yoda was a Zen master and was a natural at meditation and yoga.
So, even if she did look a bit ruff, Yoda was a beautiful sentient being on the inside. During the 8th century, they were treated as royal treasures and were not allowed to leave the palace.
