How did everyone's weekend go? Mine was just so-so... Hershey and I both had our nails cut by mom because she could hear the clicking of our nails on the tiled floor, and that's usually the indication that our nails need to be clipped. This is really one of my pet hate... I don't mind them playing with my paws, but clipping my nails is just a 'no-no'. The only good thing that came out of it is I got to eat 2 extra big pieces of smoked ham while they were cutting my nails (to TRY and distract me, I guess) whereas Hershey got N.O.T.H.I N.G!! (Mom: It's because Huskee gets quite stressed out and struggles a lot when I cut his nails, so to 'bribe' him to calm down, we use ham. On the contrary, clipping Hershey's nails is a breeze, she just stays still till it's done so no bribing necessary! LOL!!) This is a pic of me after the 'session'... I basically felt sorry for myself and moped around for the rest of the day.

Oh I have a little favour to ask... My friend Kaos's mom is feeling a bit low because she lost her job last week and could do with some cheering up. Can you please stop by her bloggie and give her mom a hug please?

My weekend was not very eventful either...same old same old. It's great that your Mom cuts your nails and is able to bribe you for it! My Mom won't be cutting my nails, coz they're black in color, and she is always so afraid to cut too, she leaves this to my groomers, which is not a bad thing coz they're really nice to me! *grins*

Hope you and Hershey have a great week ahead!

We both get bribed when we have our nails cut too.

Addie gets lots of pets and Lucie gets to chew on a bone.

Awwww... isn't it great to be spoiled!

We will stop over to see your friend and spread some cheer.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie and Lucie

Lorenza said...

Hi, Huskee!
My Vet is who cut my nails and I don't get treats for that!
You are so good letting your mom to cut yours!
I knew about Kaos's mom. It is very sad that she lost her job. This thing of the economy is a nightmare.
My mom says her job is not the best in this world but it is the only one she has and hopes to keep it for a long time.
Have a nice monday!
Kisses and hugs

Hey Huskee !

I hate cutting nails ! I struggle alot too. My nails are black and there was once where mommy was about to cut, I struggle and BLOOD gush out .

That makes me sick ! Ever since then, Mommy was afraid that she would hurt me again so she would bring me to the groomers whenever I cut my nails, there I could also shave off my paws' fur :D

O.O Nails cutting, i get my done last week by my Daddy :] At first i was struggling a lot, but when Daddy take such a long time to cut my nails. I almost doze off ._. But the good thing is i get to have treats after it :]

best regards

Haha, getting ham for nails cut? Your mom sure knows how to get what she wants.
Is it your new toy that she rewarded you after the nail deal?
Sure, I'll visit Kao's mom.

Lady Kaos said...

Gunnar's nails are clicking on the floor, too so it looks like he'll be getting his nails done soon. Sasha has to get her's done at the groomer because for some reason she behaves for the groomer, but not for Mom. I do okay with Mom and Dad doing my nails, but I put them on a major guilt trip afterwards so I get lots of treats.
Thank you so much for sending everyone to my blog to give Mom some support. We're going to be busy this afternoon going to tell everyone thank you. We have a bunch of new friends now!!! Thanks!!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We both hate having our nails clipped too, Huskee! We won't even let mom bribe us! It's a real hassle here!
We bet ice cream would make you feel better!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Nail cutting is no fun - we have to have ours done by the vet's assistant, Mom is afraid to do it - she doesn't want to make us bleed.

Sorry about your Mom's friend - we will go visit her.

Teddy said...

Oh Huskee, you can't be that sad after eating all that yummy ham! I'm smiling just dreaming about it...mmmm!!

Joe Stains said...

We've been by Kaos's blog to share some hugs. I absolutely HATE getting my nails cut too, I scream through the whole process. I need to tell Mom about this ham trick.

Aki and Poopie said...

manang cut my nails too short too.. and she drew blood from it and panicked. she never bothered to do it since and leaves it to the experts..

i could go all over it again though if i were given 2 slabs of ham like you... mmm..

drooly kisses,



Poor Huskee. You look so sad but at least you had a cute stuffie to keep you company while you moped around. Mommy can't cute my nails...she crys cause she is afraid she's gonna hurt me. So now Pets Mart does it when I get groomed.

Mommy did't know about the kumquats until Mango told us. These are kinda tart, kinda like a lemon, but Mommy likes them anyway.

{{{huggies}}}...Mona & Mommy

Abby said...

Hi, Huskee...

Yeah...That nail cutting thing is a bit stressful...

You deserve a nice long mope...

Abby xxxooo

Moco said...

We get our nails cut at the groomers. I don't think we could let the crazy old bat close to us with any kind of clippers.

Simba and Jazzi said...

We wouldn't let Mummy near our nails we'd have no paws left.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh you do look depressed. The vet says I am a sissy when I get my nails clipped too.. The reds are so active they rarely need theirs clipped...
What ever was in those weeds got away before I could catch it..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Pedro said...

I know how you feel about getting a pedicure. My mom cuts mine and Ziggy's when she can hear the clicking on the wood floors. We have to figure out how to stop the clicking!!


Comet and BLU said...

I feel your pain Huskee. BLU doesn't mind getting her nails clipped, but I HATE it!! I struggle and squirm and make noises that sound like I'm being murdered (that's before the clippers even touch me!). You deserve a treat for enduring that.
