What a day

What a day I had yesterday. First I had a bath, then I got blow dried all over. After that mom trimmed the fur on my feet, around my little boy bits and under my tail. THE INDIGNITY OF IT!!!!!! Then mom cut my toe nails and dog oh dog did she feel bad when two of them started to bleed. They bled for nearly hour and mom was getting quite worried. Now admittedly it was my own fault as I tugged my foot just as she went to cut them but we are not going to let her know that are we. Mom put some gauze and a sock over my foot after she cleaned it all as I was leaving little bloody footprints on the carpet. Of coarse it finally stopped but I had to take advantage of the situation and kept giving mom my best "you hurt me" look which also means "you had better make this up to me by playing" Isn't it wonderful how expressive our eyes can be and what we can get when we use them to our advantage :) This morning I am just fine but I will remember that trick next time I want something. Oh, mom did put styptic power on my toes (which is suppose to stop bleeding) but it didn't help at all.



  1. Rusty is the master of the "you hurt my toenail" game, except he forgets which paw to limp with.

  2. Sorry about all that Reilly! I hope you made your mom feel really guilty with those sad eyes! LOL!

  3. We hate having our nails cut too, Reilly, and mom has cut us before and we didn't find that the stoopid powder helped us either! Mom bought a dremel and she and dad have been double-teamin' it and getting the job done. UGH!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

    The open water is all the duckies need to stay safe.

  4. What a day Reilly! Hope you don't have to go through that again for a very long time! Especially the toenail thing! Katie does the same thing with her eyes, you guys must practice at night while we're sleeping!
