It was grooming day here for Midnight.
I’d been meaning to do her nails for well over a month now and it was simply time to get it done. Her nails were getting long and whenever she’d kick out at Chris or I as we rubbed her tummy (doggy tickles) it was starting to hurt or leave scratches. So yes it was time to clip those nails.
I’ve clipped Midnight nails a few times in the past and it was never a problem, but a couple of weeks ago when I tried to do one of her front feet she really protested so I got Chris to help me this time. We got her to lie down and he held her as I clipped her nails and reassured her.
Midnight wasn’t liking this at all. Every time I even touched her feet with my hand she flinched.
As I was doing one of her back feet she decided she’d had enough and kicked out really hard with both her back legs. She was positioned between my legs at the time so those strong kicks landed at the top of my inner thighs near my groin.
OW!!!! OMG that hurt!
She’d already kicked my calf and left a long scratch on it and now I either had scratched upper thighs or bruises developing. Oooowwwww!
Once I was done filing her nails I got up and took a look at my legs and as I suspected I think I’m going to have a massive bruise on my inner upper left thigh. I can barely walk!
So I’m lying here on my side on the couch, typing away, and I’ve got an icepack between my legs! Man is that cold! Darn dog!
I have a feeling that I’ll be limping around tomorrow like the walking wounded!
Has your dog ever accidentally kicked you or head butted you and left you bruised and injured as a result?
