Cutting Lucy's Toe Nails

Well, you would think that since I am work in the pet industry, i should be a pro at cutting my own dog's nails. It is not really all that hard, just got to get the nail in the clippers and cut with a deliberate motion. If you don't, it is kind of like taking off a band aid too slowly, you know what I mean.

Well, I messed it up. I went too far back on one of Lucy's nail and she bled all over the place. Luckily I had some styptic powder which was able to help stop the bleeding. She was such a trooper during the whole thing as I was trying to get the bleeding to stop.

That said, she did not let me cut the nails on her front feet.

My Mama did this to me just the other week!
But she made up to me with lots of extra snuggles and cookies, so I guess we're cool now.
