Let me start by saying I do not like to have my nails trimmed.
We all went outside this afternoon. Mom sat in the grass and called Tux to her. She made him lay down and she started trimming his nails. He is very easy going and once he realized that he was going to be close to Mom, he was a "good boy". He was finished in no time.
Zoe sheepishly came over and rolled onto her back. She got her nails trimmed with no problems. She even stayed for a little tummy rub.
Then it was my turn. Remember what I told you at the beginning? I do not like to have my nails trimmed. I came over when I was called but I tried to turn the thing into a play time with a Jolly Ball. No dice. Mom grabbed my collar and made me come close to her. She had me lay down, like the others had done. She put me in a vice grip hold to keep me still. I growled. I bared my teeth. She told me "shame on you Drover!" and "don't you dare bite me!" I didn't bite her but I wouldn't let her trim my nails either. I would pull my leg away about the time she would close the trimmer around my nail. This went on and on. Mom then held onto my collar, got up off of the ground and picked me up. She toted me to the patio table. I had to stand there and she put my body in the vice grip hold again.
She started with my back feet. I still growled and showed my teeth. She still told me "shame on you Drover!" and "don't you bite me!"
She got my back toenails clipped. She said they weren't even too long. Then she moved to the front nails. More growling and baring of teeth. No biting. She got the front nails clipped.
I am a shameful boy aren't I? Here I am growling and threatening to bite my own dear Mother
I don't show my teeth or bite but I won't let Mommy clip my nails either! I don't even like her TOUCHING my paws! No Siree BOB!!! Hands off my nails & paws!
