07/07/12 My toes hurt

Hi pals,

I had a very rough night yesterday all thanks to my humans. It all started when momma asked daddy to help her clip my nails. This alone should have been my cue to run for the hills, but silly ole me thought I was safe when daddy asked momma if she didn’t think HE should clip my nails since he sees better than her.

So daddy went and got his glasses and momma held Coco instead of me telling daddy that the little Princess needed her nails clipped too and since her nails are black there is no way that momma can clip them so daddy did all of her paws without any issues.

Now it was my turn so momma held me while daddy butchered my feet. That’s right pals, for reasons unknown to me daddy made all of my toes on both hind feet bleed. I wanted to shout out to him that maybe he needed new glasses because my nails are white and therefore he should have been able to avoid the bleeding aspect, but nooooo, each toenail was cut too much and I bled.

Momma was in a panic and need I tell you so was I? Daddy got out the septic stuff and tried to stop the bleeding but one nail continued to bleed so momma had to put pressure on it to finally get it to stop. When the butchering of my nails ended, momma took me into the sewing room and took a pair of scissors and trimmed all of the hair off the bottom of the pads of my feet so I won’t be sliding all over the laminate floors.

I must admit I am walking much better on the floors but I could have done without the butchering of my toe nails.

Are you ok now? Did you need a blood transfusion?
Or at least a ton of cookies!

And then you prolly have to have a stinkin bath to get the dried blood offa you.

Poor Puff!

I'm so sorry. I'm with Pepper on that one. No one around here touches my paws!!!! When my nails need trimming, Mommy has the vet do it. I think this is largely because she is afraid that she might end up making my paws bleed. She wouldn't cut her bunny's claws either. The vet did it for him too. She can be a bit of a coward. I hope your paws are better. I think you deserve a lot of extra treats for that mishap!
