Meet my Pet

I thought I would start a new round of blogs.....'Meet my Pet!' Most people have a little fury animal that they hold dear to their hearts and I would like to meet them. :) Or maybe even an animal you WISH was your pet.

Meet Spencer (a.k.a. Spence, Spency, Booboo, toottoot, pooter etc etc)

Spencer was born in Dallas. He entered Alex and my life May 31st of the summer after my sophmore year in college (200.....3?) When we went to pick him up he was 4 lbs and SO SQUIRMY....I practically dropped him. But I didn't.

He is definately pampered and SPOILED. But we wouldn't have it any other way.

Fun Facts about Spence:
Snoozing Style: in the bed with us, under the covers, with his head on my pillow. :)

While the Cats away: Spencer has free reign of the house ALL day. His fave nap places include the arm chair by the window, his dog bed in the office, our bed, or our closet. (at least these are the places we find him when we come home....he won't move from his location until you come find him...like Hide N Seek)
Food: Beneful Healthy Heart?? the one with salmon -- and whatever people food he can beg for

Treats: Pupperoni Lean -- got keep his beautiful physique for the Ladies in his life; bones from Target
Top 5 Favorite Toy(s):
1. hot dog
2. Mickey Mouse shorts - we bought it for him on our honeymoon to Disney
3. handlebars - knot rope that makes him look like he has a handlebar mustache
4. Tramp - shredded stuffed Tramp from Lady and the Tramp
5. Carrying around bones
Tricks: High Five, Dead Dog, Roll over (sometimes)
Spencer has a pretty extensive vocabulary...
Words Spencer knows: Alex, Mom & Dad, Scott, Amanda, Brenna, Bailey, his friends, go, tomorrow, boney, shorts, hot dog, trampy, Erika, Ride, Walk, Park, Food, Home, Sleepies, --(there are others he acts like he recognizes, but I am not convinced he knows them)

Best Friend(s): Bailey and Brenna



First time he felt betrayed: when Erika brought home Kona -- Spencer felt that Erika had deserted him forever....they have since reconciled their relationship


Weirdest Habit: Pacing around the living room furniture when people are in there, scratching at people and the 'head-butt'

I have always been a huge animal lover, but Spencer will always hold a special place in Alex and my heart because he was our first pet together and pretty much our first child. :)

Isn't he cute. :)
