PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - He's overweight and has a birth defect that left him a bit hunchbacked.
    
Quasi Modo is a 10-year-old pit bull-Dutch shepherd mix who was leading the World's Ugliest Dog contest, with nearly 10,000 votes by Friday. He was far ahead of No. 2 Morris, a mix who looks a little like a pig with a spiky haircut and has garnered more than 5,000 votes.
    
The two are among 27 dogs vying for the title of homeliest hound, which has been given to a pooch in the small California coastal town of Petaluma for decades.
    
Dogs have arrived from as far as Florida, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona to compete in a contest that applauds imperfections.

It will award $1,500 to the winner Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
