Well, as you can see, today was the day we took Elmer and Button to the vet for their shots and while we were there, we got their nails cut. Elmer is always scared to death (ever since another vet hit the quick last year) and does his best to squirm away, whines, makes dramatic faces, etc. Today he made out very well, but he did strike a dramatic pose as you can see below. He never flinched during his shot, but it took the vet tech and the vet to get the nails done. The vet tech is the son of another vet, who is also a good friend of ours. Thought you would enjoy seeing Mr. Scrunchy Face in action. Button was an angel the whole time.
P. S. There was no blood and he didn't hit the quick at all.

Well, the tribe says this pic shows that nail clipping is BASSET ABUSE!!! Just look at that poor face!

They can be such drama queens!

Hope Elmer got a special treat for all the torment he went through

Good for Elmer and Button. Going to the Vet is nearly always traumatic. Hope they both got lots of treats.

Oh, that looks all too familiar. It takes 3 people to do Copper's nails! I won't even try myself anymore. Now my mini-doxie is a completely different story. She lays on her back on the couch while I do her nails. I think it's the princess in her, though!
