Base board molding

Good evening,
My dog tore the hell out of my carpet so instead of replacing the whole carpet I cut out a square near the door.
I then put down that floating floor in that spot I needed to take one base board off.
Now when I put the new base board in (I had to cut it to fit an inside corner not being good at this there is a nice gap there)
My question is I was reading about the nail holes can I use this SWP 66 Glazing? as the last thing I want to happen is it to open up on me. I would send pictures but still can't figure out how to do this & I tried every one of those photo sites but for some reason my email is already on them. I only wish we could down load the pictures right from our computer but whatever. Only reason is I would like to show it to see if the gap is to big! but I really don't this it is.
Also I take SWP to mean Sherwin Williams paint?
Thank you!
Will,

SWP = sherwin williams paint

I prefer to use SWP's 66 glazing instead of Dap's painter's putty although either one will work. The 66 glazing isn't oily like painter's putty so it keeps my fingers cleaner

The miter gap and along the top of the baseboard would be caulked. Putty/glazing should only be used for nail holes.

I'm very sorry for being this dumb but I still can not figure it out I have the photos on image shack I just went there & there they are but there they stay. LOL
I don't get what you mean at the top of my page? What is my page on that image shack? & what is xxx sounds like a good movie or bowling game but I'm not sure.
Thank you!
Will,

Will, while you are in image shack, hover over your picture. There should be options like Img code, HTML code, etc. Copy the img code (Ctl-C) and paste it (Ctl-V) to your post. It will appear as a picture on your post.

Good Evening.
Thank you for your help yes I went to SWP & asked the guy about that 66 glazing & what I wanted to use it for. But he said & sold me caulk. He also said Spackling paste but I told him I have a tub of that. So I'm going to use the caulk.
My only thing is will the caulk shrink or is my gap to big I would put pictures up on here if i could figure it or how to do it but I was up until 3am last night trying & I can't figure it out.
I belong to a car modeling forum & there it is so easy. You just click on the pic. on the top & it takes you to your photos & you down load them but here forget about it image shack is going to email me help but it probably won't be until after the long weekend.
Will,

The guy at SWP must have been new

You should always use painter's putty for nail holes, glazing makes a good substitute. Caulking will shrink and you'll be able to see where the nails are. Spackling may need sanding and extra primer, it also can't take abuse as well as putty.
