Our little dog, Jinx, had been needing a nail trim for a while. I tried to handle the issue on my own, but Jinx already has me figured out. I’d think I was making progress by taking a tip off of one nail when I could. I’d go for a second nail, and she’d start mouthing my hand or trying to play. Everything’s a game with her!
Bela even helped me a couple of times, but it was a no-go. Jinx was chewing my thumb one time while I was trying to snip a nail. It felt like her teeth went to the bone! The last time, I had barely touched her foot with my hands when she screamed in “pain.” Manipulation is what it was!
Koko’s Palace, our only in-town option for grooming and doggie daycare, is going to be closed for a month starting February first. I called right away for an appointment for Jinx. I dropped her off with Cindy with worry in my heart. Cindy told me later that she had the nails trimmed before I made it to town. Jinx is a little drama dog!
