March Madness #wagginnotbraggin

Spenser the Dog and March Madness

My dog Spenser decided that he wanted to fill in a bracket for this year’s NCAA basketball tourney. But with a limited vocabulary and no opposable thumbs, he could neither fill out the bracket himself, nor read me off his choices.

It was time to come up with an outside-the-box solution.

I brought home some scrap paper from work and wrote the name of each team on a sheet of paper. I placed the matchups in front of him one at a time. Sometimes I had to place a treat on each, other times he was eager to give me his pick right away.

We did this for each and every matchup.



Yes, this took a very long time, but on the other hand, shut up.

It was pretty exhausting for a little dog.

It actually took two nights, a handful of treats, and my trusty assistant to complete the task.

Here is Spenser’s final bracket:

 And a close up.

I didn’t know how to have him choose his tiebreaker score, so I used 142 based on his weight, 14 lbs, 2 oz.
