Aweee poor Gumbo!!!
OMG don't even get me started
..... Scooby our yellow lab/chow mix is a freak all around he hates to be brushed, he hates to have his nails trimmed, he hates to have his back end touched, he is just the ultimate "freak boy"
it is a never ending battle with him, Darren and I have to tag team him to at least give a good brushing 1-2 times a month and even then it's not enough but the torture he puts us through is
Dakota our male rottie has a feet fettish he hates his feet to be touched, so you can only imagine trying to do his nails, and he has 2 nails that grow extremely weird, long and fast so trying to keep those 2 trimmed constantly is a challenge in itself. With my background and experience trimming nails is NOT what I do, I hate it, I'm afraid to do it, so Darren does it, but I do have to help hold the dog's down.
Tabitha is okay with it, once you get going, she has had 1 too many vets cut her nails too short and I do mean too short and has bled everytime and even limped for days afterwards, so she tends to be a bit edgy at the beginning.
The rest are okay, Gidget's nails stay extremely short so we have never had to trim hers or have them trimmed by somebody else, Jessies are the same way(but she is still quite young), and Beau has only had to have his done by Darren once in the 10 months we have had him.
Dante needs his done, but that boy is just a big ole' bear, that tends to get a spark and starts bucking around the room when he thinks your playing, so this one will be interesting
*stay tuned for as the nails are trimmed*
