Thousands of people come out to the Boston Marathon to cheer on the runners every year, but it would be hard to find a more adorable fan than Spencer, a therapy dog who attends with his owner, Rich Powers.

Spencer and his Boston Strong flags were set up between mile 2.5 and mile 4 this year, with Spencer donning a yellow rain coat to help keep him dry. Spencer's sister, Penny, often joins Powers and Spencer, but she's sat out the last two years because she doesn't like the rain.

Check out Spencer in the video above.
