Today i clipped the dogs claws, been meaning to do it for ages as they were really long but didnt think i had a silver nitrate pencil (it stops bleeding from the quick) and knew he would bleed as i could see that the quick was really really long and some of his claws are black, but he really needed his claws clipping. (I am ex vet nurse so know what to do etc). Just a case of getting dp to hold Jack russel size dog still for a few minutes. First cut, OK, Second OK, third - DP not holding dog properly, bled - held pencil on it for few seconds, no drama. Fourth cut - black claw - bled, no big deal. DP looking decidedly green around the gills - hands me the dog - "i cant do this anymore, you are making me feel sick"
ROTFL - oh my god! Its not like there was loads of blood, pin pricks if anything. DP now in huffy mood because ive stressed the dog out - LMAO - he always says the dog is mine, that hes not really a small dog person, but now hes all precious because ive stressed the dog, who is quite happily sat at my feet as i type - loves his mum, so he does
And the award for wussiest DP goes to..........
