There you were going along your regular Thursday, enjoying the countdown to the weekend and all of a sudden BAM!, this happens.

We hate to be the ones to tell you this but Yoda, the winner of 2011's ugliest dog contest, has sadly passed away. The 15-year-old mix of Chinese crested and Chihuahua died in her sleep late last week.

She had a tough life, living on the streets until she was found by Terry Schumacher. He originally mistook her for a rat (hey, stop laughing back there) but soon welcomed the unconventional pet into his life. And boy, what a life they shared.

After scooping the World's Ugliest Dog trophy last summer, along with $1,000, they also went on the chat show circuit, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where she received a glamourous makeover.

Here's Yoda in one of her happier moments:
