Tuesdays With Tag - I Like This Much Better...

Hi, Everybody!
Did you all have a good weekend? We sure did!

We made another video for you this week.
Mom has always clipped my toenails before last week. I wasn't real
wild about that program, and sometimes she cut one just a little closer than
 she should and I'd yip. (Don't worry. It only happened about two times.)

Anyway, last week she decided to try a new tool. It was a little hard
for me to get used to the sound, but I'm gettin' real good about it now.

Here's the video:
Here's the direct link:

Mom said there are a couple of important things to remember about using the Dremel
tool to trim (file) my nails. See how she files a little and then lifts the tool away from
my nail? That's so that the heat doesn't build up and hurt me. That's the reason she
doesn't turn up the speed, too. Maybe she'll turn up the speed later, but not for now.

She said it's a good idea not to get my foot fur in the way of the file, too, so it doesn't
 pull and hurt me. She's very careful when she does this. In fact, she's so careful that
she's accidentally filed her own nails trying to protect mine! She ends up with a 
curve cut into hers. She's real careful with me, 'cuz I'm her favorite Corgi! 

Here's the deal. Every time she trims my nails, the quick (where the blood comes
into my toenails) recedes a little bit. The more she trims my nails, the shorter they
can eventually be. Trim a little, the quick backs up and she can trim a little more.
So if she files my nails every couple of days, they'll be well-groomed and a perfect
healthy length in a couple of weeks. Then I can really zoom around the place! 
You won't hear my toenails clickin' at all. I'll be "Stealth Corgi"!!

Here's a great article that explains dog toenail information in depth. Click here.

I hope you liked watchin' be get groomed this week. Don't worry. I don't show her
brushin' me or stuff like that. Too borin'! So, that's if for this week. 'til next time...

Tag, You have been very brave getting your toenails trimmed. You didn't splash mom after you got out of the pool did you??? Mom takes very good care of you. I have enjoyed catching up with you and mom this morning. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Now that is a modern nail trimmer if I ever saw one. Mr. C uses his Dremel for car building and such. Tag you are lucky Mom is so gentle with you. Mr. C would not be gentle at all! You earned that swim my little Corgi Cutie!!! Happy Tuesday...

Wow!! I can't believe how calm Tag was during those 10 hours!! Pollie will hardly even let me touch her toe nails let alone try to trim them. I am going to see if she will let me get that dremel tool close!! Thanks for the fun video and the link. Hey, can Pollie come swimming after I dremel her nails? Huh, Tag, pretty please!!
