I don't understand why Brinkley won't let me trim his feet/paw pads all of the sudden?! The last 2-3 times I have trimmed him and done his feet, he has thrown the worst fit! He is one strong little bugger when he is determined!I tried being in charge, asserting my alpha-ness...it works for a second...and then he is all squirmy and pissed again. I have tried different angles, different places (on a table, in my lap...etc.) I tried the small clippers, the big clippers...(I don't think my tiny ones will get the foot pad hair). I tried the scissors, but he is DEFINETELY not still enough for that. I can't tell if it hurts him, or tickles, or if he is just plain being ugly! He stood SO still for me to trim the rest of him and mess with his face, even up his ears...etc. But DON"T MESS WITH HIS FEET!!! I have to take him to the vet to get his nails trimmed b/c he was the same way when I tried to trim those, and I gave up. But the paw pads used to not be a problem. The first time he acted like that, I chalked it up to a bad day...but today was even worse. I finally got the back ones done, but I can't even touch the front! I try to just be firm and hold on tight, but he is SO squirmy and strong-I am afraid he is going to break his own leg getting away! HELP!!!
I just noticed the typo in my topic heading!!!How do I fix that now?!
