Nail Trim? Me?

Mommy’s trimmed Nala’s nails many times before, but me — I never needed one… until now.

But first…

I hope you don’t mind me sharing another drawing my mommy did. Can you guess who she is?

Nail Trim? Me?
It’s Roxy, from Roxy the Traveling Dog!

My mommy doesn’t have any rhyme or reason to which furries she draws (unless it has been commissioned). She is currently building up her portfolio… and since I have the best looking furry friends, she’s been browsing around the bloggie neighborhood. When a photograph catches her eye, she just knows… and that’s the drawing she chooses. All of the drawings I post are 5″x7″ unless it says otherwise. If I post a drawing of your furry one, you can indeed purchase it. Please contact me. I will let my mommy know. You can find more information on this page. Thank you, friends! Woofs! :)

Another bloggie friend passes…

Please stop by our friend Amber’s bloggie to send some comforting thoughts if you can… Amber’s sister, April, has gone to the bridge. They could use all the huggies you could share. Thank you, friends. <3

Now for today’s post…

This is the tool that mommy uses to trim Nala’s nails. Nala doesn’t mind it much anymore — she just lays there and lets mommy finish.

Nail Trim? Me?
Mommy was very patient with me, since I did not
like the sound of the nail trimmer. She placed it
near my toes, turned it on, then removed it.

Nail Trim? Me?
Of course it helps to get yummy treats right after! See the
cheese on the floor next to me? YUM! I didn’t mind the trimmer
after a while, ’cause I was getting yummy cheese!

Nail Trim? Me?
Mommy ended up trimming all the nails on all of my paws,
but she said she probably could have done it some more.
She said I had enough for my first nail trim. And she was right.

You can see a good pic of my fabulous nail trim this Sunday. Teehee! Do you get your nails trimmed?

  2. I hate it when the Mama dremels my nails. It’s terrible and she doesn’t feel one little bit bad about it. That’s the worst part. It’s like she doesn’t even care about my suffering!

    Zoie has her’s trimmed with clipper and she hates it!!! I wonder if she would except the trimmer like your Mom has?? Thanks for this post, we will look into them!
    When the coons come to eat their dinner, Zoie is on one side of the fence and the coons are on the other side so they don’t ever get close to one another. If they did all would get hurt and we don’t want that!!!

    Oh how I DO NOT like the nail trimming. It has taken 3 men to hold me down and even then they could only hold me down for about 87 seconds. So good for you for letting it happen.

  5. Another fantastic drawing, your mum is a really good artist!
    Our Mum has tried everything to cut our nails, including one of those but we do not make it easy for her so she has resorted to paying the vet to do it.

    Mama is so talented. Our Mama is a chicken. Papa takes us to the groomer for a pawdicure. They even do the hair between our pads.

    Another fabulous drawing by your mom!! And that’s quite the nifty looking nail trimmer! Looks like you were being a good girl for your mom ;) Cheese always helps!

  8. My Mom is chicken (we’ve trained her well!) to trim our nails so she just takes us for long walks down the road and the concrete does it for her. It’s a lot more fun for us too! Although, like Snoopy, I wouldn’t mind getting the cheese…

    You look beauteous, long nails or short, Bailey!

    Lots of Love,


    P.S. your Mom sure does draw pretty pictures of your friends!

    Bailey you are so brave! I have not had my nails trimmed but I suspect I won’t like it. I will try to be brave like you when my time comes. My mom was wondering about that trimmer thingie though.

  10. Hey buddy – I guessed it was Roxy!! :)

    Oh, the nail trimmer, my Mum got me one just like that when I was a puppy, I didn’t care for it much, but it didn’t come with Cheese – hmmmm?!

    Since I started running though I’ve never needed my nails trimming – phew!! I wouldn’t mind getting the Cheese anyway :)

    Hope you’re having a fun day :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)

    I am very ugly acting when dad cuts my nails! He has been wanting to buy that fancy smancy nail thingie you mom was using hoping it would help. Mom said nothing would help! BOL!! Looks like you did a great job of staying still!

    Another great picture by you mom!! She has such talent!!


  12. You’re so brave and well-behaved, Bailey. I don’t think Eva will let me trim her nails at all!

    Beautiful drawing!

    I am not a big fan of the nail CLIPPERS… BUTT my mom bought a “Glass” nails FILE thingy and I LOVE that thingy. ERNIE.. (the clueless) thinks its all good.

    We get our nails done the furst week of every month. Same time we get our Pills and yucky stuffs put between our shoulders.

  14. Oh Bailey you are such a good girl. I don’t know how my girls do because they have to go to the groomer for their trims and they do it. I don’t know if they would be as good as you if I did it through. You are such a sweet girl.

  15. Kari says:

    we used the clippers ourselves on Hay the other week – it was stressful, we bought this and are hoping to give it a whirl to see if she likes that better, thanks for sharing!

  16. Milo doesn’t mind the ped-i-cure (especially since we sing “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book movie (don’t ask, he just likes to be sung to while getting a pedicure). Now Dixie? She won’t let anyone touch her nails. No how, no way, nothing. She needs one so bad, but I’m gonna have to wait until teeth cleaning time so they can put her out and get both at the same time.

    Shelle (for Milo and Dixie as they are both snoring as I type.)

  17. Bassetmomma says:

    Bailey you are so good getting your nails done with that trimmer! I wish you could show Freddie that it’s not that scary. We have to have the vet do his. :(

    That trimmer looks a lot less menacing than a clipper! And you got treats! Not too bad then!
