Kristine from Random and Odd wants us to post the following:

Your Weapons
Your Victim
Your Crime Scene
Bonus Points: motive

My weapons consist of dog nail clippers and a flexible muzzle:

My victim, Doc. Oh my poor victim. He looks so innocent! Little does he know what awaits him. It almost looks like he's expecting a second dinner. Oh no, my friend, that is not the case.

Doc HATES getting his nails clipped. HATES. IT. He will bite and growl and writhe about. Hence the muzzle. I can just hear his doggy inside voice cursing me and vowing to eat me in my sleep:

My crime scene is actually very clean as it is hard to get any clipping done even with the help of a muzzle. This is all I had to show for my effort (it still takes two of us to clip his nails, even with the muzzle):

Bonus Points? We're getting new flooring and I DON'T want it getting all scratched up with Doc's uber nails.



Doc's nails are made from a secret spaceage polymer. They can't be filed down by walking on sidewalks or with nice manicure files (yes, I've tried that too). If he's gonna have to wear a muzzle no matter who trims his nails, I prefer that it be in the comfort of his own home AND I don't wany him biting a goomer or a vet tech before the muzzle goes on :) No lawsuits here!

AWWW....Poor Doc! I wonder what it is with dogs and getting their nails clipped? Our kitties never say a word. Our German Shepherd used to scream like a baby about it....and she was never hurt by it. Shel's Mom was here once visiting and I cut Riley's nails to show her what a pussy our big dog was. She laughed so hard that she cried.

You're very brave to do it yourself. We always took our St. Bernard to the groomer and made HIM do it!

Blogger TBG said...

lol that was great!

I played too!

Blogger Lori said...

Love your mosaic floors!
So, wait, wait, wait - what's with the HCRA counter at the top? When I click on it it's got all sorts of baby-stuff. Did I miss somehting? Or am I being stupid?

Blogger Kami said...

Poor baby. Why do you torture him so? That's why I pay $10 or whatever to have the vet do it!

Blogger Tutu said...

If you walk the dog on a sidewalk or paved street the nails will get filed down. That is after you wake up from your nap of course.

Blogger Nap Queen said...

To answer some of your questions...

Lori-the counter is for the Hill Country Ride for Aids, but if you click on it, it will take you to the website where I got the counter. You're not stupid!!

Kami-The vet has to do the same thing, muzzle and all, and he even gets more mad at them because he hates them. Plus, there's more chance that he'll bite the vet before they get the muzzle on him :)

Tutu-We never have to clip our other dog's nails because we walk them, but Doc's nails are ultra hard and don't seem to get filed down the normal way. I've never had to clip a dogs nails before this guy!

Poor Doc.

Great Crime Scene. Did you find all 10 pieces of evidence?

I played too.

I just switched to a new blog on my own website. http://www.thestolenolive.net

Blogger Peanutt said...

Awwww! I love the picture of Doc! I played too!

Blogger Spikey1 said...

Wow, you do it yourself? We used to take Brandy to the vet.

Blogger Kelly said...

Poor doggy! I just take mine to Petsmart... and he's overdue!

Happy Friday - I played!

Blogger Tammy said...

Wow. You are a brave woman. I have to wrestle Molly Sunshine and I need a friend to trim her nails!

I played.

"It almost looks like he's expecting a second dinner. Oh no, my friend, that is not the case"

I love it.

What a great take on this week's assignment!!

Our one kitty is very much the same. When we took him to the vets to have his nails clipped (cuz we couldn't get near him!), they charged us the same as for a dog because he was so difficult.

We try to tag team him, but it's just so not worth it sometimes.

I choose to fork over the $8 for Petsmart to do Gage's nails. He also is a lunatic and writhes about as if being killed slowly. I hate it and it makes me cry. LOL

Blogger Celina said...

Aww! Poor guy! I guess I'm lucky with all my "furkids." I can cut all their nails myself (even the bird). Cute pic, cute dog!

Blogger Lisa said...

Doc is so very cute. My Abbeydog is in love! She says to tell Doc she's single, available, smart, sassy and fixed. She hopes that fixed part is a plus. But just let Doc know that if he's interested, he needs to take her to dinner first before she puts out.

Blogger Random and Odd said...


And the poor victim...LIVED!

Blogger Ariella said...

The dreaded nail clipping, oooooh the humanity!

Blogger Mama Duck said...

That used to be my least favorite thing to do with Lucky. I used to pay the vet to do it, but I could pay her off with a bunch of parsley if she somewhat behaved.

Blogger suburban mom said...

Oh my! that was funny :)

Hi, I have a fairly new website that has been online for about 8 months. I looked at alot of websites that are in my area horse racing party supply . So my wife and I thought since we love horses we should build a website around that. I didn;t realize it would be so time consuming though. But we love it and hope to improve and offer some of the best recourses and products available. Hence the search for content new products and information about what we have. If you decide to come and visit maybe you can offer some advice That would be great. If not well you have A great new year. We hope to soon start a new site for horse adoption and rescue. Hopefully in the spring.

Thank you for your BLOG.
