Yesterday I was playing with Oscar and he’s so rough. I don’t think he means to be but he’s strong and he’s a puppy! Rita is so dainty .. Oscar is like a bull in a china cabinet!
He got me with his back nail on the arm and it bled and bled. Vince was saying “you may need a stitch!” I knew it wasn’t that bad. My skin is old and fragile and I need to be more careful when playing with Oscar.
Almost every day we spend a few minutes with the nail trimmers. We have the regular clipper kind that snap a bit when the nail cuts and we have the grinder one. I love the grinder one. I’m not afraid of cutting too deep. Oscar doesn’t like either kind so we spend a few minutes with treats, and I let him sniff the trimmers, he always tries to destroy them, then when he gives up, I move them near his feet and will touch his toenail. I don’t think we’re making much progress.
I’m glad I’m not canning today and keeping my hands in and out of dishwater all day.
Tomorrow I have to go to the doctor. He’s kind of a no shenanigans type guy and I’m sure he’ll want to have me committed for having a dog that does this. The cut on my arm from yesterday is just above my wrist. Long sleeves will cover that one. Would the doctor think I’m weird if I wore my garden gloves the whole time I’m there? 🙂
