Favorite Animal?

Hiya!!  So today is the third day in Ooh La La Polish's My Favorite Things Challenge - My Favorite Animal!  After yesterday's horrific day, I'm pleasantly surprised this mani turned out how I expected!  Never mind the fact that I spent time trying to think of all the animals there are out there - I even pulled out the ol' google search to see which animals were 'easiest to draw.' LOL

After much deliberation, I decided to do my puppy poo, Tucker, or as I affectionately call him Poppa, Poppa Dukes, Tucks, Tuckernutterbutter, Tucksnut, Stinky or the love of my life!  I've always wanted a dog, as long as I can remember.  Instead of the real thing, I got a shirt with a picture of a dalmatian on it - not the same thing mom!  We bought Tucker from someone on UsedVictoria, he cost a LOT of money.  We went there with the intention of just checking him out and lo and behold the hubby (who was not in for getting a dog with our three cats), fell in love and could not leave him behind.  Those of you who follow me on Twitter or Instagram, may have seen pictures of my baby, he's got a blue mohawk that gets all the ladies.  I don't think the picture picks up the blue mohawk I've given him, but trust me, it's there!

    1. Whatever, if I could paint his nails, I would! The dye is totally non-toxic, it's made from food coloring. We take him to a groomer to get it done!! And, as if he isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen?!?!? He's a lady killer - the blue mohawk is his mojo!!!
