Tyler The Dog Is A Hit On "Swamp People"

Author : Grubb Young

Americans love reality television shows, and now the History channel has come out with one that looks at the life of the many people who live in the Louisiana swamps. This is a remote region that is boggy and full of bugs and alligators. Urban legends abound about the area, from voodoo priestesses to swamp creatures. A multitude of fictional works including books, cartoons, movies, and TV shows paint an image of the Louisiana swamps as a place where normal people just shouldn't go. The History channel is dispelling these urban legends, and highlighting the life of the people who call the swamps home.

Many swamp natives make their livings off the swamp and the rich wildlife in the area. Alligator and turtle hunting are vital to the local economy. One of more interesting people highlighted on the show is Bruce, who describes life in the swamp as his "little piece of heaven". Bruce raises turtles and alligators, and hunts them in the swamp. He also owns and operates a small company, where he takes tourists out on boats to see wild alligators in the Louisiana bayou. In his overalls without a shirt, and an American flag bandanna keeping his long curly hair under control, Bruce entertains tourists and TV watchers alike.

The History channel features short clips from the show on its website. Some clips are only available on the site, as they additional footage that was shot but cut from the program. One of these clips features the bandanna clad Bruce out on a small swamp boat with his best friend, Tyler.

Tyler is a dog who has been with Bruce for ten years, since he was a pup. It didn't take long for Tyler to become the kind of dog who expects to go everywhere with his best friend, Bruce. According to Bruce, you can't hitch up the boat without Tyler wanting to go along for the ride. This is the perfect day on the bayou for Bruce—out alligator hunting with his trusted companion.

Part of the fun for Tyler the dog going out on the boat is Little Debbie Zebra Cakes. According to Bruce, Tyler got turned on to the snack one day out on the boat when he was a puppy. Bruce had forgotten to carry dog food, and Tyler had become hungry. Bruce didn't want his best friend to have to wait to get back to shore before he could put something on his stomach, so Bruce offered the pup the only thing he had on hand. Ten years later, Bruce says Tyler loves his Zebra Cakes on the boat and before bedtime. Bruce happily explains that Tyler's weekly grocery list always includes a box of Zebra Cakes.

Like all the folks on "Swamp People", Tyler the dog seems to be living a happy life. Plenty of outdoor time and regular boat trips makes for a happy dog. Tyler looks pretty good for a ten year old dog with a penchant for snack cakes. He obviously gets plenty of exercise to stay fit. With as much freedom as Tyler has to run around outside, it's unlikely that he ever needed wee wee puppy pads to help him puppy train. As healthy as he is heading into his elder years, it's also unlikely that Tyler will ever need puppy pads to help with incontinence in his old age.
