My Chessie friends, the 2 brown dawgs, now 3, commented on my manicure…”the whole process is exhausting, isn’t it?”
Haopee, of My Dogs Love Me wants to know how much one of these grinder things cost…
My Humans original one that she used on my older Chessie sis, now over the rainbow, was battery powered. This one plugs into the electric outlet. Some humans have said their pawed ones don’t like the noise.
The secret is lots and lots of treats and always use the sand paper like stuff and change it as soon as it starts to wear down.
I used to have a treat after every part of a nail. I still get one after every paw. At first my Human didn’t try to do my nails. She just turned the thing on and armed with treats got me used to the sound and then the feel of the vibration in her hand while she stroked me all over. Once I realized the sound meant treats and the vibration didn’t hurt, all was well.
Oh, sorry, I still haven’t answered your question Haopee. The grinder thingy is called a dremel tool. There is also one selling with a little cover. They sell as Pedi-paws or Oster Gentle Premium Nail Trimmer for around $20.00. These are great for small dogs. You need to get a larger, stronger one, also more expensive, if you have a larger breed, like me. Small ones are available in Walmart or pet stores. Larger ones are available in most hardware stores. They are a woodworking tool.
Here is a link to a guide (here), updated last year, that my Human originally used when learning to use a dremel on Candy. There are also UTube videos if you prefer.
A new pal of mine, Suka, asked if there was any good gossip in the pee mail…
Always lots of gossipy stuff!
Suka also wanted to know if this picture was my yard.
Yes, Suka, this was the morning sunrise the day before we left.
Snoopy asking about “No Mischief Monday”, wanted to know if there was really no mischief, or if I just didn’t get caught.
Snoopy, there was really no mischief to catch.
Flea from Jones Natural Chews wants to know what a “hooman” has to do to get in on the nap action…Can’t say I really know…sorry I couldn’t answer that one.
Thanks for stoppin’!
Y’all hurry back now!
