Exclusive Details

0428-swamp-people-bruce-tyler-01All dogs go to Heaven ... and now one more rambunctious canine has checked into the big puppy bowl in the sky -- Tyler the Swamp dog.

Tyler's owner Janet Mitchell -- "Swamp People" star Bruce Mitchell's wife -- says the dog's heart gave out around 1 am Monday morning after a 3-year battle with congestive heart failure.

Bruce buried the swamp dog in his yard not long after ... alongside other deceased pets.

Hug your loved ones for Tyler and eat a zebra cake.

heart breaking
the death of a beloved pet is devastating, more so than most people...... who don't show you the love and companionship your dog does.

Non pet owners will never understand. Your pets are like your kids sometimes better. They rarely complain, almost never talk back, are always glad to see you and appreciate the time they have with you.
Be at peace Tyler, it looked like you had a fun life.

Anyone know that dog's breed?
I had a black and tan that looked a lot like that when I was a kid
He lived to be about 16 iirc
Got him from the pound as a pup and never knew the breed
Great dog I'd like another companion like him before I croak

We all loved that gator licking dog, Tyler. But no one loved him more than Bruce. All good gator licking dogs go to heaven. Condolences to Bruce and family.
