This One-Armed Toad Is An Inspiration To Us All
Sir Pudgington forever.
Meet Sir Pudgington, aka Pudge.
Pudge is a one-armed toad owned by 11 year-old Floridian Ashton Stalvey.
Stalvey told BuzzFeed that she found Pudge on a late night walk with her father.
“We were walking down the sidewalk when out of the corner of my eye [there] was a small figure moving awkwardly in circles. Immediately, I fell in love with him.”
The name was a no brainer: “People see being pudgy as a bad thing, why not promote body positivity and portray it as a good thing? Pudge is pudgy, it is what it is, and it’s adorable.”
Salvey says that the props in the photos are “random things I have around my house, or results from a trip to the dollar store.”
“Most people think I’m in college or high school, or get help, but I run this account all on my own. I’m just a little kid with a little toad.”

Salvey says, “The only thing I want from his social media is to make people smile.”
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, Ashton.
