Fifty bulldogs took the stage on Monday at the 33rd annual Drake Relays Beautiful Bulldog Contest in Des Moines, Iowa. The pageant kicks off the Drake Relays festivities at Drake University where a bulldog is the mascot. Although all the dogs had a strong case to be crowned champion, the winner was a two-year-old pup named Tyson. In honor of Tyson (pictured) and bulldogs everywhere, here's a look at the event.
