Mom got out the mini minty bone treats last night and I was all ears, eyes and throats. Then she got out the nail clippers and the scissors and I got a bit wary. She tried to cut just ONE of my toe nails and I din not like that one bit. After many tries, she only got one nail cut and then I tore outta there! I came back timidly and got my minty bone.
Then Lexie gets up there on the bed - yes, she did this on her bed, silly Mom - and she lets Mom cut every single one of her nails. And she acts like it's no big deal! Show off. Then Mom finally did it - she cut too far and Lexie's nail started to bleed. Still no reaction from Lexie. Sheeeeesh! Mom put some powder on her nail and I dunno how this works, but it stopped bleedin' right away.
Well, that cinched the deal for me. No way am I evfur lettin' Mom get near my nails with those clippers again!
Then Mom moved on to the scissors. She trimmed around Lexie's ears and eyes. Then she got me on the floor and lured me in wif more minty bones. Then she trimmed out my ears a bit and I wiggled and she almost nicked me and I yelped and ran! More minty bones and another close nip on the other ear and that was it. Who does she think she is, anyway? It's my fur and I'll keep it in my ears, please. OMD! I did get one more minty bone. That's the least she couldda done.
Then Mom took a big roll of tape and made a ring of it wif the stickies out and cleaned off her bed really good and got into it and went to bed. I slunk back in the dark and crawled under the covers and fell asleep, dreaming of really hair ears and showing them off to my sweet Gretta. She would like them that way and Mom would see that and leaf me alone.
I'm with ya, dude! I hide when Momma picks up the dreaded nail clippers, too. And I'm also proud of my very-hairy ears. Momma swears when she plucks the hairs outta the depths of them, my tail gets shorter.
I hate for anyone to even touch my feet! ACK!
