Proud mama moment. took miss keke to get her nails trimmed at #petsmart
today. in all her four years, she’s never had them professionally done. usually i just chase her around the house four days in a row doing one hand at a time. a few years ago i accidentally cut one too short and it was traumatic for us both. ever since then, it’s been a giant struggle to get her to let me cut them... so i finally gave in and leave it to the pros.
she was pumped to go to petsmart because she knows that’s where the treats and toys are! not so thrilled to head back to the grooming area and she flat out refused to let them take her away from mama. she sat down and refused to get up as soon as they tried to pull her away. so i walked her back with them then headed out so that they could work with her without her worrying about where i was! to my surprise she did absolutely wonderful. no growling, no fussing. as her mama, it was hard to watch her because i can tell she was extremely worried and scared. pshhhh.. anyone can tell that judging by her face in these photos lol. those are the eyes of sheer panic hahah!
i am just very proud of how great she did considering she’s never had anything like this done by anyone but her mama. i think we will keep bringing her back to petsmart for nail grindings for sure. bathing- i’ll still probably do myself even though it is a pain in the b**t and makes my guest bathroom a mess. she doesn’t mind bath time.
what about little kyle you ask? oh! well, kyle has absolutely no fear of mama trimming his nails. he is a breeze. he’d be way more afraid of being at petsmart around all these strangers. yea, mama’s boy lets me do pretty much anything to him. as long as he can be with his mama, the world is rainbows and sunshine for young kyle boy.
so trips to petsmart will continue to be mama-nike bonding time. #boxermom #niketheboxer #keeksandkyle #kekedog #mywubbadog #biggirlsdontcry #nailsdid #prettygirl #boxersofinstagram #mylifewithboxers #boxergang #boxerfan #keeksonfleek #puppydaughter #ilovemydogs #theygetmorepresentsthanmyhusbandforxmas #sorrynotsorry
