So when the dog who plays Baxter, Ron Burgundy’s beloved Spanish-speaking pooch in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, came to our studios this week, we did lots of Barbara Walters impressions in the mirror prior to our sit-down. This was big, and we had to be ready.
On Monday, a 2-year-old mutt named Quince trotted (like the “big deal” that he is) into our New York City offices with his trainer and agreed to engage in a game of Chatter with us (watch above). He pulled five questions out of a bowl – with his mouth! – and answered all of them ever-so-eloquently in 60 seconds, just like we’ve done with countless other celebrities. This job is never easy, but somebody has to do it.
Needless to say, we nailed the interview – we do believe, like Barbara, we made Baxter cry – and are holding our breath for a promotion. Just one more thing: Ron Burgundy, next time the news teams are ready to rumble, count us in!
