In true Bowlin style, Tyler LOVES animals. The dog, Spencer, is his favorite. If you have never had the great pleasure of meeting the world's best dog- he is an almost nine year old Rat Terrier/Border Collie/McNab mix that looks like a Basenji or Kelpie (if you follow dog breeds). I got him when I was in college and he has pretty much been my shadow since then. He defiantly has a special place in my heart for me- and the feeling is mutual. He's a little OCD and has a weird breathing problem, but you gotta love him.
Since Tyler has been about four months old, Spencer has been a constant entertainer. All he has to do is walk into the room and Tyler lights up. He could be having a huge crying meltdown and then turn all smiles at the sight of the dog. Our newest game is sit on the floor and throw a tennis ball for Spencer. They both love it. I can only imagine how they will be when Tyler can play with him when he's older. Good stuff. This is what memories are made of!
