Today Napoleon and I had to get up early and go to the vet to finish up his annual shots. We spaced them out, did rabies about 3 weeks ago and DHPP today. Anyway, I also asked the vet tech to trim his nails. He is a HOLY TERROR about it. She did it, but it didn't look great...they were ragged and not short enough. So when we got home, I had to clean up his manicure, which of course he was not happy about. After that, I decided to nap on the couch a bit before work. Dax joined me and I kept calling for Po...he wouldn't come. Finally I gave up, figuring he was just pouting by sitting on the dog bed in the kitchen. I woke up and sure enough, that's where he was. Poor guy was FREEZING and shivering because our house is cold! He would have been nice and warm if he had just come over to the couch or even to the living room in front of the space heater...but no, Mr. Attitude could not swallow his pride! What a brat! :D

Also, at the vet, I took him down off the exam table after his shot and he didn't have his leash on yet. He ran straight out the exam room door to the lobby - that is the only time he is happy at the vet, is when we leave!! I had to chase after him!

Poor Napoleon! But the stubborns will make you cold!


Tasha agrees about the nail trim. After the Vet Techs take her in back for nails and anals you can always hear her coming back, top speed, to mommy, dragging the vet tech behind her.

I hate when they don't trim the nails properly! Then they are already freaked and you have to try and fix it.

Poor 'Po, not only did he have his nails done twice, BUT he froze instead of snuggling with Mommy. I don't think there was anything TGIF about his day.

Po, you just have learn there are some times that it's not so smart to be so smart to have such an attitude! You should have snuggled with mom even if she did take you to the evil vet. :rofl:

I know what you mean about the not so good nail trims. No fun! Of course, I'd be happy if they could do a not so good one on Miller. They haven't been able to do his because after about 4 nails his eyes roll back in his head and he looks like he's going to have a seizure! :shocked:

Aww Poor Wittle Po and Miller :hearts: :hearts:

Po, you must learn to swallow your pride and not be so stubborn. Mommy would have kept you nice and warm. You missed out.:sosad:

What I dislike is, When you ask them to trim your pupperz nails they say
"Oh, but they aren't that long." then just to please you, they take of the tiniest piece and still leave them jagged and CHARGE you for it!

Poor Po and others, trimming nails is not a fun visit. Silly puppy giving you an attitude, but they don't forget easily. Next time ask the tech to trim the edges, it just takes a minute. Trixie is muzzled when she gets her trims and she is definitely not a happy camper, poor girl gets it done every 3 weeks.

Before I left for work I made sure Po was comfy...I heated up the SnuggleSafe disc and covered him on the dog bed with a blankie...

So I come home 6 hours later and this is what greets me...and actually when I walked in it was over his head like a shawl!

So he had stayed under the blankie ALL DAY! silly dog!!!

Cute pics, looks like that's a warm blankie. Please what is a SnuggleSafe disc and where can I purchase it? Thanks.

:rofl: Napoleon, you do have quite an attitude!!! You shouldn't be mad at your Mommy because I saw that turkey she fed you. If my dogs ever got a turkey (or a raw diet in general) I can guarantee they'd probably never get angry with me!

That is quite the life 'Po has! I would love to stay under a blankie with a snuggle safe and sleep for 6 hours.

Where did you get the snuggle safe? Is it expensive?

Man you had a very bad day didn't ya. Guess he found out the hard way that is sometimes doesn't pay to be so smart and have an attitude.

SnuggleSafe is a microwaveable heating pad for animals. I do believe that Prickles has one!!! :)

That is a warm-weather dog for sure. Tristan was like that too; he really liked to be HOT.

Nail trims - blah. Angel has started trimming her own with her teeth; I am pretty sure that's not a real good idea, but she is doing it when we're not around to stop her.

Poor Po! :)

We have the heating disc too. I am not sure whether Gigi love it or not, you know it's SOLID hard... so I figure it's not that comfortable to lay on something that hard... but it also keep you warm. Anyway, sometimes I use the disc, other times I gave Gigi THREE blankies. haha.

Tasha has two blankies but I might try the disc. Our heat tends to either be over the top or non-existant (steam heat, at the mercy of the landlord). I bought a small stuffed bear full of rice that you heat in the microwave, but it kind of smells like food....

That's interesting! Let me ask a perhaps stupid question...would it be bad to use one of those in a crate? Miss Priss gets SO COLD. I put her crate as close to the heater as I can but I'm so afraid of a stray spark or something!! That would be a great thing for her for in the winter when I'm at work!

Courtney

No they are designed for that...just make sure you put it under the crate pad or something. It should always be covered or wrapped in something because it is HOT on its own. I leave mine in a pillowcase on the dog bed in the kitchen.

Thanks Courtney!! I'll have to check it out! I get so worried on what i can and cannot put in their crates! I've heard some horror stories and just don't want to follow suit! I'm a bit over protective of my babies as they are my world!!
