Last week we got a new dremel to trim the dogs’ nails. Already you know this is going to be an exciting post.
First, let me say that I’ve learned a wonderful new trick for keeping the dogs occupied while trimming their nails: Peanut butter. On the side of the fridge. Over which they will happily go nuts while you grind their nails. And it keeps them standing up. Wonderful! Whoever came up with this should get a Nobel. Obviously not in one of the big categories (like Peace), but maybe in one of the smaller categories (like Making It Easier to Trim Your Dog’s Nails).
Second, there’s the box that the dremel came in:
I swear that I’m not making this box up. Does that not look like the saddest dog you’ve ever seen? Doesn’t that dog look like he just cannot go on another day? Doesn’t that dog look like “Oh. You’re going to cut my nails? Hmm. Well. Okay, I guess.”
All week I kept thinking about Sad Dog until I finally decided to do something about it:
Classic Sad Dog.
