Neil Patrick Harris Coos Over Dog Spike’s Broken Toe: ‘I’m Sorry’

Get well soon! Neil Patrick Harris’ dog Spike has suffered an injury and the How I Met Your Mother alum is hopeful for an easy recovery.

“Spike broke his toe,” the Series of Unfortunate Events star, 48, explained in a Friday, January 14, Instagram video. “He’s in a little cast for four weeks. I’m sorry, I hope it doesn’t snow.”

In his social media video, Harris planted a series of kisses on the French bulldog, exclaiming, “You’re like a French horn, a French bulldog horn!”

He also captioned his post, “Poor Spike..!” Spike, for his part, sported a yellow cast with illustrated bones over his leg and paw. The cast was even signed by the actor’s twin children, who wrote sweet messages to urge the animal to feel better.

The Matrix Resurrections star and his husband, David Burtka, share twins Harper and Gideon, both 11. Their growing family has three dogs: Spike, Gidget and Ella. Burtka, 46, even paid tribute to the canine companions while picking out his spouse’s Christmas present late last year.

“Awesome gift this year: replica stuffed versions of our dogs,” Harris shared snaps of the three stuffed animals via Instagram in December 2021. “Bravo @cuddleclones for nailing Gidget, Spike and Ella’s likenesses. Swipe to see their actual visages. Swipe quickly back and forth for a chuckle… (thanks @dbelicious for being so gift smart!)”

While Spike and Gidget have been members of the Burtka-Harris brood for several years, Ella was the latest pup to join the family amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Oh Santa, what have you done?? On Christmas morning, @dbelicious and I watched Gideon and Harper open a box filled with… a golden retriever puppy. Her name is Ella, and she has pretty much taken over our lives,” the former child star announced the
