We all know that a dog is a man's best friend. People who own dogs know that they offer unconditional love and friendship, along with providing needed companionship. Dogs can also offer needed inspiration when times get tough. Spencer the dog is a canine who provided such a service this past Monday.
The 2018 Boston Marathon was notable for a couple of reasons. the weather was cold, rainy, and miserable. The harsh conditions made it very difficult to compete. Also, for the first time in 33 years, an American won the event. Desiree Linden won the women's race with a time of 2 hours, 39 minutes and 53 seconds. One consolation for all the runners was having Spencer the dog cheer them on!
For the third year in a row, Spencer was there, dressed in a raincoat and waving two "Boston Strong" flags from his mouth! Spencer is a therapeutic dog who offered Marathon runners some needed inspiration in the gloomy weather. So while we salute Desiree Linden for winning the 2018 Boston Marathon, we also salute another champion from that day: Spencer the dog!
Check out the little guy and his amazing spirit...
