When Spike turned his head to the side, Neil looked over and said 'Who's that?'

The New Mexico native continued kissing Spike and making blowing noises as he buried his face in the pooch's chest. 

'You're like a French horn, a French bulldog horn', he joked.    

Spike wore a bright yellow cast that had a neon green dog bone pattern on his front left leg.
