And I'm here to tell you the Captain has been dethroned. By a dog. Who lives (and serves) in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, Ontario. His name is Rusty RuRu The Canadian Dachshund.

Rusty thrives — nay, conquers — Canadian winters. He also "can sport a toque like nobody's business," his owner Terri tells BuzzFeed.

He also has a broken tail, which Terri and her husband calls "a sweeper" because "it wags and at the same time sweeps the floor."
