Roo, the two-legged chihuahua on wheels and his best friend Penny, the orphaned silky chicken!
Those of you who didn’t get Washington’s Birfday off are probably sitting in your cubicle and staring up at the fluorescent lights above while asking yourself, “How can I go on?!” Well, this is a reason to go on a living!
Alicia Williams, a client services receptionist at The Duluth Animal Hospital in Duluth, Georgia, rescued Penny the silky chicken from some kind of animal facility where she was being used for medical experiments. Alicia later took in Roo after some dead-hearted piece of shit monster abandoned him in a ditch and left him to freeze his way to heaven when he was just 7-weeks-old. Alicia told The Gwinnett Daily Post in October (via Metro) that she thinks he was born without his front legs from breeding and that the backyard breeder dumped him in a ditch because they couldn’t sell him and they’re smegma scraped off of Lucifer’s crusty asshole and will spend the rest of eternity in a ditch in hell somewhere. But Roo was rescued, Alicia took him in and now he and Penny are best friends and the stars of The Duluth Animal Hospital!
Alicia regularly brings Roo and Penny into work with her and they’ve become such an attraction that clients schedule appointments on days that they’re there and some people come in just to see Penny. And at home, Roo and Penny are a Pixar movie come to life. They’re best friends, they snuggle together and sometimes Roo, whose bad ass mobile was donated by a client, runs Penny over.
“They get along really well. Penny gets excited when Roo is around because she knows he’s got treats and food all of the time. Whenever she hears him being fed, she steals his food. He loves snuggling with her because that’s his big teddy bear. He runs over her sometimes because he doesn’t realize how big his wheels are.”
Even the image of Roo running Penny over gives me the serious awwwwws on the inside.
The world is a shitty, depressing place and sometimes you wish Sherri Shepherd was right and it really was flat so you could throw yourself off the side of it, but every now and again happy things happen. Leave it to a story about the friendship between a bad ass two-legged chihuahua on wheels and a chicken who looks the love child of Loosey Goosey and The Chicken Lady to make me believe in love and the kindness of humans again! (Cut to 20 minutes later when I’m declaring that I hate humanity after watching another Kanye rant.)
And if you want your heart to melt and drip out of your ass, watch the video of my new favorite best friends at The Gwinnett Daily Post. They’re the remix version of the Fox and the Hound. Life’s a happy game!
