In three-legged dogs

To the editor: Sportswriter Rob Oller has described Rutgers as “the pathetic three-legged dog.” Meet Gus the Goldendoodle who has received a lot of media coverage in the Twin Cities. Gus lost a leg to cancer, but there’s nothing pathetic about him. Gus became a hero when he swam out into the St. Croix River and rescued a baby otter. The otter would not have survived this far from shore alone and is currently in the care of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota. As for Gus, well, he has three more chemo sessions to go. Oller must do the right thing and write a column celebrating Gus’ heroism.

To Jay: Clearly, Gus isn’t pathetic. Actually, he’s a very, very good boy. Rutgers? We’re not so sure.
