Mani's and Pedi's All Around

Holy Smokes look at those raptor claws! Dang mom, you have really slacked on the nails.

This is not a photo-op, this is really how I do it.

Mom says she feels like she has wrestled alligators after cutting/sanding our nails. Whew. I even gave her attitude, when I am normally very compliant. I was tired and just so over it. Mom doesn't just give us the ol' nail clip, she insists on clipping and then SANDING them down with a big emery board. UGH!!!! Over the years I have learned not to fight her on it or it will just take longer, but Coco has yet to figure this out. She Kicks, Squirms, Jerks and gives mom hell. Way to go Coco! I can't do that because I am a scaredy Kitty.
Three questions: Do most all pugs hate for their feets to be touched?
Do your pawrents cut your nails or do you go to the spa?
Do you spaz out when getting your nails done?
Just curious,

Hi, Kitty!

Hank and I go to the beauty parlor (don't tell Hank I told you) once a month and mommy lets THEM deal with it!

Lick ya later!

I don't mind my feetsies getting touched, in fact I enjoy a nice paw massage. But if I see that nail clipper torture thingy (mom does mine at home), it's time to find a good hiding place! Luckliy my nails are white (even though I have black furs), so it's not too bad. Mom gives me lots of treats, but I still have to put up a fight to maintain my dignity!

Oh goodness girls,

You are sooo much better than I am! I HATE NAIL TRIMS.

Momma used to have the vet do it, but she did not care for their methods (they would put me under because I was so 'upset' when they tried to clip them). Well she didn't want me being anesthetized for no reason, so she started taking me to Petsmart. I still put up a fight (it takes 2 people), and I ALWAYS poop on them, but now it only takes 5 minutes and I am DONE! :)

Hellos girls! Well, I Tuni, have to be held by daddy and he has to feed me bits of treats while Mom clipss and sands my nails. My nails are pretty curly (due to mean peoples inmy past) so it takes awhile to clips them. Sequoia, wells she is like Pearl. She had to be put unders last time. You can't even start an IV on her she is crazys! She fights so hard her tongue turns blues. Mom and Dad just bought a nail sander thingy and are gonna trys that method next.

First it's always Izzy!! She's the worst!! She will wiggle and growl at Daddy and make these nosies and Mommy says just take um to the Spa and Daddy's all she is fine!! Then Mommy trys to get the Peanut Butters out and Daddy's all like she's got your number and calls Mommy a sucker!!

I am shocked that the Boston Terror is more compliant than his pug sissy. So you know, you gave my mom ideas with today's post and I'm not sure I like that. Tsk tsk. I post about marrow bones and you about nail files... do the math and post about something yummy soon, pretty please.

We finally made it over to your blog, we are slackers. We get our nails cut at home and we fuss through the entire process.

Sandy said...

Hey Kitty and Coco! Just love your names. Thanks for stopping by and commenting at my place. You guys sure are cute! I'll be back to see what you all are up to.

Kitty+Coco said...

Good to know most of you have to suffer through the home nail trim too. Mom took us once to the pet store and got it done and then fussed for hours about the fact that our nails were even more sharp because they didn't sand them. Pearly we can't believe you poo on them every time! We are SO impressed. It has taken mom a whole year to even wrestle Coco down to do it. Ha.

We go to the "spa". Our nails don't seem to grow to fast, so it's only every few months for us. Bust momma does wash us in the torture chamber, I mean downstairs shower and we never really like that!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi my friemds.
I must admit that I refuse to let moms do my nails, so they take me to Pet Smart.
The girls at Pet Smart are very kind and cooo and kiss me, and the job gets done.
And sometimes moms takes me to the vet to have it done- and I act sorta okay- a little squirmy- however the notes on my chart say "easy". So I guess all that squrming is not so bad. I get my nails done about every 6 weeks or so. Come to think of it- its time again- oh dear!
