Today was hygiene day, and since Maizie has been doing so well with it all, I decided to add one more element: nail clipping. Maizie hates nail clipping, no matter who does it, so it was a gamble. However, with the taste of peanut butter–flavored toothpaste in her mouth and a treat after every nail, it started off wonderfully — she was calm, she didn’t seem to mind at all. Until I cut too far on one nail. Maizie yelped, I felt awful and tried not to cry. And then I tried not to throw up when she started bleeding all over. I did what you’re supposed to do, and then made Maizie rest. But once I took her out for afternoon potty-time, it started bleeding again. I repeated Operation Fix-Her-Foot, and then I decided to nip any more bleeding in the bud and put a sock on her. It took some coaxing, but she’s now leaving it alone and sleeping peacefully. Guess when I’m going to cut her nails again? Um, maybe never?
