   Leave a bone for Spencer

Spence, Bird Dog, Peanut Head, Bird LaMaker, Baby Dog, Furball, Hairy Potter, Fluff Daddy and The Notorious D-O-G

Quick Bio:
-mutt-three legger-pound dog

Spencer is a super lovable dog. He loves the water (lakes, puddles, anything) being outside and he looooves his treats. But most of all, he loves it when we're all together.

Wellll, Spence is getting a lil crankier in his old age, and he's not too fond of hyper puppies (no matter how cute they are!). He hates when we leave him at home alone and he gets all riled up when he hears skateboard wheels!

Favorite Toy:
A nice rawhide chew. We just bought him one of those gross peanut butter filled things, and he really flipped for it.

Favorite Food:
Pigs ears and pizza crust. (not that he *gets* these that often!)

Favorite Walk:
Golden Gate Park and Point Isabel (he loves to be around other dogs).

Arrival Story:
My husband got Spencer 13 years ago at the Animal Care and Control in SF. He was 4-legged and a big gorgeous hyper pup! I met them 5 years later, and by then Spence had lost his front leg (a water accident. heart-breaking for us, but he happily adjusted!). Spencer was lightening fast until he hit age 10. Now he's more of a homebody, although he still loves it when we take him to the park. He's the best...he's also very proud to have been the very first Three-Legger on Dogster!

I'm sad to report our beloved Spencer isn't doing so well these days. He took a tumble in January and has been having a difficult time ever since. With lots of love and some meds from the doctor, he was nearly back to his usual spunky self (albeit much much slower) but now he's definately slowing down. Hip displacia has set in, and with only three legs, it's not so good. He's still the most beautiful, sweet dog on the planet and we love him dearly...cross your fingers for us please. xoxo, alex & greg & spencer *HAPPY UPDATE!: April 21. Spence is still going strong! He can't walk very far on his own, but he's still thrilled to be here and loves barking up a storm! YAY!
