      Yup! It’s Naked Nathan! I think he’s adorable, in his very own off-beat way.

    D’aw!! He’s not ugly!

    • April October 5, 2016 / 3:17 pm

      You’re right…my poor choice of words. Should’ve said ‘unique and adorable’ 馃樃

      • Clairdelune October 6, 2016 / 9:09 pm

        Yep, every dog or kitty is either adorable or unique! You hadn’t yet had a sufficient amount of coffee when you wrote that, right? I know how you are in the morning… 馃榾

        Don’t worry! He’s… unconventional 馃檪 and thank you for sharing x

    It’s muted since I’m at work, but I have Pandora on my headphones and JT’s “Rock Your Body” was playing the whole time. Somehow perfect.

    Nathan is crazy 馃檪
    And he dances a lot better than me.
    Or is he just scratching his back?

    • Smartypants October 5, 2016 / 5:19 pm

      I love this dog! Yes, I bet he’s just scratching an itch…but he does it with such style!

      • Skimpy October 5, 2016 / 6:14 pm

        Oh yeah! And manages not to trip over the couch cover, which I would have done nearly instantly had I tried to dance on it.

      It’s not just scratching his back, here is a conversation on Facebook (I took out the names of the people) :

      Person – My kid was asking how Nathan learnt to dance. 鉂わ笍 i told him it came naturally. He wishes our cresties had it in them. 馃榿

      Dancing Nathan – yeah….he really surprised me, that’s for sure. He’s smart because he found a unique way of getting treats! 馃榾

      Person – Do you tell him to dance or does he just do it hisself? Just curious how he gets moving 馃檪

      Dancing Nathan – picking up my camera and moving the chair away from my desk are his cues…but then I have to say “wiggle” sometimes too.

        I’ll be darned – that makes it even better! And he always looks so happy, too.

    Adorable NOT ugly!

  5. anonymous coward October 5, 2016 / 7:05 pm

    oh, come on, he’s not ugly, he’s just… special. 馃檪

    p.s.: hey, ntmtom (ok, i just mangled that, sorry), love the new edit feature!
    p.p.s.: hey?! where’s my old avatar icon? the mauve nose creature (or whatever it was)?

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike October 5, 2016 / 7:17 pm

      Those icons are randomly generated. I don’t know the exact procedure, but I have heard that the icon is based upon the user name and email address entered. If you have change either of those recently, that may explain how the avatar changed.

    UGLY, an acronym which here stands for “Unique, Glorious, Lovely, and Yes-I-want-to-hug-him-right-now”!

    I think the doggie is adorable but the outfit is an eyesore. Cute dog deserves cuter outfit. ^_^

  8. April October 6, 2016 / 11:23 am

    Oh dear…my first time sending-in and 4 down votes 馃槩 I’m sorry everyone; I thought Nathan was just too cute and silly not to share ….backs up slowly and retreats to the lair….

    • allein 馃惥 October 6, 2016 / 11:28 am

      I assume all downvotes here are accidents. 馃槢

      (I’ve done it but unfortunately you can’t remove or change your vote once you click one.)

    • Gigi the cat lady October 6, 2016 / 11:33 am

      Don’t take it personnaly, like Alein said they are probably mistakes.

    • AB October 6, 2016 / 11:40 am

      Nathan is adorable! Loved the video!

      If I recall a long time ago on another website, there was some commentroversy about a little chi being physically forced to dance with fishing line for a video, so downvoters may have been worried something like that was going on here. I didn’t downvote it myself, just speculating. Seeing Gigi’s post, it’s clear that nothing bad was going on with Nathan.

    • Smartypants October 6, 2016 / 3:02 pm

      April – Nathan is marvelous and I’m glad you sent in the video!

      • April October 6, 2016 / 8:19 pm

        Thank you all….I’m going with the accidental downvote ‘splanation 馃槂 Didn’t mean to sound overly sensitive…just having a weird day….

        • Clairdelune October 6, 2016 / 9:16 pm

          Hey, we all have weird days now and then – actually mine are weird quite often. Best cure: get one of your geriatric kitties on your lap, scratch chin, and wait for the purrs. There, all better!! 馃榾

  9. Kar October 8, 2016 / 12:11 am

    Never heard of this rescue group. Nathan must be their celebrity spokesperson.

    I guess they specialize in Chinese crested? Or other hairless breeds from Mesoamerica with names that I can never spell correctly.
