I bought the Pedipaw when it first came out at CVS......for like $20 I think, ummmm yeah no way was that going to take care of Mr Macaroni toes, maybe a chiuaua besides the noise he would not have tolerated, he didn't even like a hairdryer. I would use "heavy duty" clippers (stronger than the guillotine ones and open ended like pliers with a spring) in a pinch between vet visits where I preferred to get them done. B wasn't real good at holding still with just me attacking him, yup he could play me hehe. Ms Annie is nearing her first manicure, but she is such a good girl and doesn't seem squeemish about holding her feet, hopefully I can get them. She does have a couple of those dreaded black toenails that will freak me out though.
