Ugh, the worst time of the month – getting my nail clipped. See, I know why it’s important. Long nails can seriously hurt me and make me walk funny. But nothing is scarier than seeing the pup stylist coming at me with those sharp clippers!
Hey, why do you have to hold me like a baby?! I can keep still. I know I tried to run away, but that was one time! Okay, three. Maybe four? Okay, I see why you’d want to hold me this time around.
I don’t mean to bite, just a reflex! Maybe put me down one last time?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAA! You didn’t even hurt me but AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! This is the worst! Is this how human pups feel when getting their head fur trimmed?
All right, now I’m committted to the screaming. Maybe I can get them to stop if I keep going! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Well, at least this lady’s moving fast. She’s finished a couple of paws. It’ll be over soon. But I bet if I keep screaming I can make them stop even sooner. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Okay, spoiler alert: it didn’t work. Turns out humans are pretty vigilant about keeping their doggos healthy. Who knew?
Now that it’s over, I can calm down a bit and recognize that it was needed. Nail clipping is no fun, but it has to be done! Now my human is giving me all the head scratches and belly rubs I could ask for, and telling me I did a good job. Here’s hoping I’ve got some yummy treats waiting for me when we get home!
