Howdy all you great Rositeers...
I hope your Xmas and New Years Eve was a happy one.
Mom (Silkylady) and I got a new family member this Xmas.
I wanted to call it "Mop" because it looked like one...lol.
But Mom decided it would be "Tiny" number three. Both
her previous dogs were also called "Tiny" you see.
Hence, I get to call it "TNT" (Tiny Number Three).
I wanted a photo of Mom holding it but she wasn't feeling
very photogenic so I sat in for her. I'm not very photogenic
either but by contrast, the mutt will look extra cute...lol.
Anyway, we saved the dog from being put to sleep at the
animal shelter. He's in very bad shape and malnurished.
He was picked up as a stray, matted fir and traumatized.
So, Tiny has a brand new home now. My biggest irritation was the
shelter insisted on neutering him before we could clean him up.
Now we can't treat his skin or bathe him until the stitches heal.
In two weeks, after we get him groomed, and mom feels more
photogenic, we'll post a second picture set with her and Tiny in
Moms gallery (Silkylady) so be sure to drop by to see the change.
I was afraid to pick him up for this shot.. he's just skin over bones,
light as a feather and I thought I might break him.
Admittedly, he's quite photogenic and a bit of a ham in front of a
camera. I do believe I see a smile on his kisser.
So until next time.. best wishes to all of you super folks here!

Dy-no-mite!! Well, you already know my thoughts and sentiments about the mighty TNT taking the helm at your home, and I think it's a fantastic thing you did for the little guy! They say the third time is a charm and I think this might be the case, Dave!! I fantastic set of captures here and thanks so much for sharing! Happy 2007 to you and your clan!!
Dear Dave, He's just darling - and yes - does have a bit of a mop look - but then so do I most mornings - mine is just blond!!! You are both so sweet to take him into your family and I'm sure he is going to be a wonderful addition. It's a real sadness, but the animal shelters are one place I CAN'T - I could never leave without twenty!!! Breaks my heart!!! I'll be wathing for his "close up, Mister De Mille" in a future Elnor post!!!! Love you and Elnor - hope she is feeling much better!!!! Meredith
Poor little one,do not give a bath before all is heal(can be dangerous-infections)from the street to a luxuriously hotel,must be heaven for him now! you and your mom will get a lot of fun and friendschip from him,it is wonderful to take him into your home.
Hi Dave a pleasure to see you on "Candid Camera". This brings back many a memory. In my late teens a mutt acquired me "Zonk" as I later named him strolled into my parents kitchen through the back door one afternoon. He was all banged up and looked like hell, and hungry. I fell in love with him on the spot. I fed him, gave him a bath, took him to the Vet., bought him a collar and as life goes he stuck around for some ten years. I've owned many a dog in my life time but good old "Zonk" has a special place in my heart. You did the right thing here ol buddy and I have a gut feeling that TNT (I like the name) will turn out to be a real winner. Happy Yew Year.George
Oh, Dave, these are so cute. I can't wait till we can get him bathed, cut, and groomed. He is so cuddly with me, I can't get him off my heels, while trying to get something done. This night you took these, I felt and looked worse than Tiny. Huggs and more...Silkylady...
AWWWWWWWWWWW___Dave how sweet little tnt is ; he already had my heart "Tiny Not tough"lol but he will be one day soon as I know he now has loving people to feed and take care of him most of all love him it's a wonderful present for anyone and maybe as we all (here @Renderosity) watch him grow we can make him our mascot?? wouldn't that be fun he is adorable:hugs )) Happy Elnor is feeling better: PS/are you still on vacation?
Awh Dave he is just adorable... As for looking like a mop my hair looks like a mop all time grin Need to get this mop of mine cut or as this photo would call for it groomed LOL So glad you gave the dog a good home...no dog should ever be mistreated... Paisley Rose rescued a Diamond Terrier (spelling) I would rescue them all if I ever saw them I am soft hearted.... Precious photo...and ya look rather good there yourself:) As for the New Year I watched the ball drop again.... Excellent capture sweetie... Hoping 2007 is a better year for us all Hugs Susan~
Oh my goodness Tiny looks just like Zizi, what a cutie, you too David!! I know that you and Elnor will give him the best life ever. They say bad beginings good ending, so this little guy has a great future ahead.I can wait until he gets cleaned up,not that he isn't just adorable just how he is, but it's amazing how different theses little guys look with a good cut.I'm so happy to hear that silkylady is feeling better, little TNT will make the healing process faster, that what love can do. Enjoy your gift, he will keep giving for many, many years xxxooo
Clockwise from top left: See me walk the runway! I'm light on my feet, my tail curls just so. I'm soooooo adorable!! Treat? Did you say treat? Okay I'm sitting now..(tail thumps the floor) Oh...here let me turn my head just so..see my gorgeous smile! Oh and check out my cool goat tee...doesn't it just set off my grin... I'm ready for my close up!! Move over Bengy..there's a new dog in town! Center: Well if he's not going to smile than neither am I. We guys have to stick together you know..(thought bubble above Dave's head) wait till they see you all groomed and pretty! (thought bubble above TNT's head) Did he say pretty? Oh geeze, I hope they don't get me one of those prissy poodle cuts...that would be soooooo humilitating. LOL! Sorry couldn't resist...these are great...what a cutie!! I think TNT is a great name dave....a little package of dynomite, he seems to love the camera. Hey who is that guy with the blue eyes? Wow...!! He's a lucky little fella to have such caring souls to look after him. He looks as if he's already wormed his way into your hearts and made himself nice and cozy there. Can't wait to see him after the "barber shop"...
