If there's one thing everyone loves, it's a pet pal by their side! And that holds true for Wendell & Vinnie actor Buddy Handelson. When we asked Buddy if he had any little critters at home, he gushed, "I do. I have a long-haired wiener dog. He is so cute, his name is Dudley and he is awesome."
Wait a minute.... That name sounds familiar. Oh yeah (duh)! That's because that's the name of Jerry Trainor's character Dudley Puppy from T.U.F.F Puppy! So, of course we had to ask, did Buddy name his pooch after his co-star's character? "No actually," he told us. "I just watched his show and I thought, 'Oh yeah, Jerry's show, his character's name is Dudley, I forgot.' But when I told that to Jerry he was like 'Aw, you named it after me!'"
So does this mean Jerry will be doing guest star voice overs for Buddy's pet pooch? He hasn't yet, but we think it's a great idea!
