The Lure Of The Nail Clippers

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, like most weekends, found my husband doing the task of trimming our dogs’ nails.  Actually, for Bunny and Morgan, we use the nail grinder.  Küster gets his nails and ears done at Petsmart because Mr. Taleteller doesn’t like to battle with him and his wiggly ways.  For Flattery, we get out the clippers […]

The Trauma Of Toenail Trimming

by Houndstooth on

I have mentioned in the past that Flattery is a unique little character in a lot of ways.  One thing that we’ve had a lot of trouble with when it comes to our little Black Dervish is touching her feet.  I’m not sure why she’s so sensitive about it, but she definitely does not like […]

Murphy’s Law Strikes Again

by Houndstooth on

This week, we were excited to have some special guests at our house.  One of our longtime Facebook friends decided to bring his human over to visit.  Griffin isn’t just any dog, he’s the reason I fell in love with black German Shepherds.  Meeting him was like meeting a rock star in my eyes. Of […]

Boots Are Not Always A Fashion Statement

by Houndstooth on

Well, it seems Lilac is paying a price for playing like a puppy.  I’ve mentioned before that she has a disease that causes her toenails to grow strangely and break off on occasion.  We have had a few incidents with this happening that some may remember.  All our joking about it aside, I know that it […]
