Rescute: A baby deer named Jet

The good folks over at the Iron Mountain Jewelry store had quite a surprise recently. On the way to work one recent morning, they found a fawn on the side of the road, it's Momma just killed. The baby had just been borned. So, rather than leave him, they took him in and researched the finest way to bring up McFawnersons.

Which includes delectabuhl meelks:


Curious housemates...


Knobbular nature walks...


Tap dancing surprises...


Attempts to nurse on the Great Dane...


And of course, carrot slices.


Check out the FULL STORY and loads more photos here, in their Fawn Folio. Thanks for the tip, Amberly S. ;)

OMH, I just splorted milk out my noze at the tap dancing thing! And I bet the Dane was all, WTF????

Look at those bright white spots!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:20 PM

OOhh, she's all slender and timid. Want!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:21 PM

wups, meant OMG, not OMH.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:21 PM

Tap dancing surprises. LOL! I wish we could see the Great Dane's face. I'll be he (she?) was pretty surprised, too.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:22 PM

I WUVS HIM!!! Espesch the Bambi-esque sprawl on da floor. How teeeeny is that deer to be DWARFED by kittehs!?

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:22 PM

And are the kitties actually BIGGER that she is? Cause that would be awesome.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:22 PM

I guess I never knew how big a deer baby is (not very). Maybe that's just because it's a Texas deer. Deer up North (especially in my neck of the woods, Montana) are huge. The picture with the cats is great. "Um. Excuse me. What exactly is this thing doing here?"

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:23 PM




 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:24 PM

The cats are thinking, "That's one funky looking puppy!"

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:34 PM

Quincy, the deer have to be big in TX, because you know, everything is bigger there.

But aside from that, even in your neck of the woods, you probably haven't seen many brand new baby deer, since the mamas keep them hidden while they're tiny and wobbly on their feet.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:40 PM

PS, love how the dog's (very beepable) nose is sticking into the carrot picture. ;)

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:42 PM

My heart is broken that McFawnerson's mamma was killed. **cry**

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:49 PM

Hope springs eternal, Theresa! :) Although I didn't know dogs cared for carrots much.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:50 PM

how beautiful - I wish I found a fawn on my lawn.

pic no 4 reminds me of that somehow:

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 03:51 PM

I am sooooooooooooo inlove~

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:06 PM

If anyone nuffs this picture, I will come to your house and make it smelly.





Jet with the wind in your hair
Of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we'll go for a ride in the sky
And Jet I thought
that the major was a little lady suffragette


 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:09 PM

I think the apparant giant-ness of the kittehs is just due to perspective.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:11 PM

Well I wanted to nuff, but the thought of someone coming to my house to make it smelly is a powerful deterent.
Only joking-these pictures are adorable-I love the dogs nose & smile in the last one!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:22 PM

Picture four needs to be next to the definition of 'Splayed'. Which is even better because how often does anyone get to use that word. :D

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:26 PM

God Bless you, for caring!
This did my lonely heart very much good...

What are the chances that an orphaned deer would be taken in by a family with a mama deer sized dog that loves it? Somehow that makes the story so much less sad for me.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:36 PM

OMG How cute! It's great that they took a baby deer in =D
It's really sad about the momma though :(

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:37 PM

There is a special place in Heaven for people like this. What a wonderful story... we need more moments like this. That much love and kyoot could heal the world.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:56 PM

I wanna baby deer!!!! So cute! A little sad, for sure, but mostly a happy story---the people who did this are just wonderful!!!'/

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 04:57 PM

This are the sweetest pics in the world!
My smile is from ear to ear!!!

This touched my heart. I went to their Etsy site and purchased some beads (coincidence since I LOVE glasswork). Anyone with such a kind soul deserves support!

The web site is awesome! Such a great story - and awesome surrogate parents for Jet. I lufs heem. (and Drake is da bomb).

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:03 PM

OMG!!! The curious housemates!

and AHHHHHHH the nursing on the great dane!

I am keeled by the cute. X.X

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:07 PM

splat! ded in a puddle of qte!
that is so awesome. yay for these great peeps (i already loved shopping on their site). i love that the menagerie just welcomed the lil guy. and drake the dane is just wonderful. buddies! so very cute!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:34 PM

Holy crap! I thought the photo of the deer cowering from giant cats was enough to kill me but then the re-enacting of Bambi's ice-skating on the frozen pond scene was just too much. I NEED a splayed fawn in my living room right now!!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:39 PM

I love the fact that the cats are bigger than he is!

It is worth reading the story and looking at all the pictures. I really like thwe one where he is looking up at the photographer.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:40 PM

Dear. Sweet. God. What a beautiful baby, and what beautiful humans for stepping in to save this little guy.

Now please 'scuse me. I must go about cleaning up all the rainbow barf I hurled.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 05:46 PM

So amazing a cat is bigger than a bebeh deer! Such a darling bambi. I hope they manage to get him back into the wild one day.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 06:08 PM

So cute I can't not hardly stand it!

I hope there's a "forever" home for Jet in a (safe!) sanctuary when he's grown (most animals raised domestically can't be re-introduced to the wild successfully, as I'm sure these lovely and conscientious folks know). I do so love a happy ending.

Meanwhile, congratulations, love, and kudos to Mike and Ms. FRIT for their hard work and kind hearts. Is there anything better than saving a life?

auntmame: my beagle loooooves baby carrots. she goes crazy for 'em.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 06:48 PM

I love, love, love that red collar.

Kudos to hubby for saving this little guy. My guess is that mama's trauma induced the early labor. Ya gotta love a guy like that!

I keep laughing at the cats being bigger than the babeh deersie. Then I look at the knobular kneesies and I wants to hug the babeh deersie and snorgle it.


 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 07:18 PM

Too bad that little dewd is gonna kill George Chakiris in the first act.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 07:26 PM

hee hee hee - I lurves me some giant kittehs looking at the fawn & thinking WTF?

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 08:21 PM

I suddenly have flashback/foreshadow of Jet upsetting the milk, knocking over the fence and ruining the crops, and Mama is going to have to get the shotgun, and Jody has to clean up the botched job ...

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 09:10 PM

The little red collar! Zoh!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 09:37 PM

omg, i think i'm gonna cry, first because jet's mother died, and second because rescue stories like these are just so touching!!& jet's absolutely adorable!

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 09:59 PM

LOL Patito!!! Someone Richard Beymer is rofl.

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 10:44 PM

What an adorable baby. And what kind people these are for caring for him. But I wonder what they're going to do when he grows up? You can't really domesticate a deer, can you?

 |  Jun 14, 2008 at 11:25 PM

Oh I'm so glad that someone so loving and caring found the baby before the elements/predators did.
It's so sad that the momma died though :(

But at least he's being taken care of very well. Everyone must visit the website. Reading about him and the way the great dane is so gentle w/ him is just awesome and so touching.

 |  Jun 15, 2008 at 12:31 AM

What a bee-you-tee-ful bebbeh! So sad that he was orphaned, but how wonderful how these people are for caring for him!

The cats have "WTF?" written all over their fuzzy faces!
