Tyson, a beloved English bulldog, doesn't bite ears like his namesake, boxer Mike Tyson, but he does share a title - champion. Tyson beat out 49 other pups for the honor on Apr. 23 in the tongue-in-cheek pageant, "Beautiful Bulldog", now in its 33rd year, which kicks off festivities at the annual Drake Relays track and field meet in Des Moines, Iowa.
