Sources agreed unanimously on Wednesday that Rudy the three-legged dachshund is way cuter than Buckets, the five-legged pug.
“Rudy’s such a little sweetums,” mused Tricia DeAnthony, “He’s a trooper and I’m a sucker for that kind of resilience. He works with what he’s got, you know? Not like–” DeAnthony stole a furtive glance at Buckets, “some of us.”
“When I ask Rudy to shake," said his owner, Darren Wong, “He does and then falls over. He’s so brave. Buckets on the other hand… well there’s something a little unsettling about him.”
Wong, who hadn’t even acknowledged Buckets at this point, went on to describe how cute it is to hear Rudy’s little, lop-sided, pitter patter when he walked across the floor while Buckets’ always sounded more like a giant insect crawling around.
At press time, Rudy found his spotlight stolen by Sarah, a two-legged dog with one of those adorable wheelcarts for the back half of her body.
