This article is about the man who runs contests along with Archie Hubbs. If you were looking for the neighbor who owns a Toy Poodle named Sammy, see Toy Poodle#Neighbors.
Ted Rumsworth is a man with brown hair who wears glasses and a blue shirt. He runs and commentates contests in both Nintendogs and Nintendogs + Cats, along with Archie Hubbs in the former of the two games. He usually asks Archie questions about the player's dogs, and usually responds lightly to a witty comment of Archie's.
Role in Nintendogs + Cats
He plays the same role as the original Nintendogs. For some reason, Archie Hubbs does not appear in the competition but makes a cameo in the BARC shop on the mountain route that opens only during on rainy days and at night.
"Here to cover the action is your announcer Ted Rumsworth and my friend and associate, Archie Hubbs!"
"...Yes. So with that, let's begin!"
"[Dog name] mustered a good effort but just couldn't quite lick the competition!"
"Uh, (Dog name) is a (Dog breed), Archie. But good metaphor."
"It hasn't even started yet, Archie."
"This marks (Number of 1st place victories) compulsive victories for (Dog name)! Just how much further can he/she go on this winning streak?" --Archie then tried to correct Ted if he meant "Farther", but then Ted said that was what he said.
"...You may want to think about where that tongue's been, Archie."
(Correcting Archie) "That's a (Dog breed), Archie. How long have you been sitting on that joke, anyway?"
"...And that looks like that was our last participant! Today's trial has officially ended." --Ted says this when your dog is in Agility trials only.
"Are you as excited as me, Archie?" --In championships.
"This marks (Number of 1st place victories) compulsive victories for (Dog name)! Just how much farther can he/she go on this winning streak?"
"...And that wraps up things for today, folks! This is your announcer Ted Rumsworth and commentator Archie Hubbs signing off."
"And the next time we'll be seeing (Dog Name) will be in the (name of class)"
"Yes. In any case, could it be enough to earn a ribbon for (Dog Name)?"
"That...doesn't make any sense. Anyway, next time we'll be seeing (Dog Name) will be in the (name of class)"
"(Trainer Name) dog (Dog Name) finished with.. a score of (Score Number) leaving him/her out of the rankings"
"That's just terrific, Archie. Next time we see (Dog Name) will be in the (Name Of Class)"
"(Dog Name)! Next up for you is the (Name of Class)!"
"Archie, that's a (Dog Breed)." --In Obedience Trials"
"So just how will (Dog Name) measure up in the eyes of our three judges?"
"ANYWAY! It's time for the judges' announcement!"
"And the (Dog Breed)'s score is (Score Number)!"
"He/She can't hold it any longer!"
"You make me feel like a man, Archie."
- Ted Rumsworth's appearance is completely different in the Japanese and Chinese version of Nintendogs. He seems to look more Asian compared to his normal appearance. However, this change wasn't made for Archie Hubbs.
