The Mitchell family is sad to say that Tyler, the alligator dog, has passed away. He has been sick for a few years now and has been on heart medication since his first issues. He will certainly be missed by all of his fans and especially his family. We love you Tyler-Boo! May you rest in peace. November 2001 - April 28, 2014

Tyler, also known as Tyler Boo or Ty, is Bruce's trusty hunting sidekick. Tyler was actually rescued from a local shelter as a gift for Bruce's youngest daughter Janice, but like every other dog his daughters had, they eventually became Bruce's! Tyler was raised indoors, in the beginning, and spoiled rotten. He has always eaten whatever Bruce eats for dinner and dessert. If for some crazy reason they didn't have enough for Ty, Bruce would (and still does) cook him something special! Bruce and Tyler connect like best buds. When Tyler talks Bruce knows what he wants/needs - water - snack- dinner- potty. Once Tyler got older he became a well fed outside dog, per momma.

Ty has been gator hunting and fishing - really if you say the words "boat" or "ride" he is ready to go - ever since Bruce can remember. He is great with Bruce's granddaughters and absolutely loves Bruce and his family. He is truely this man's best friend!
