Stupid human tricks - Or, why you should never try to brush your dogs while barefoot

Because while brushing Dog #1, who doesn't really enjoy being groomed as it is, Dog #2, who loves being brushed almost more than anything, even butt scratches (and really, who doesn't like a good butt scratch every once in a while), will come bounding out of the house at 100 mph and begin doing crazy-ass puppy laps around the patio furniture. Dog #1 will see this and in her own doggie way will say "Forget you, Lady" and bound after Dog #2 to grab his whole head in her mouth, therefore ending any and all fun that might be had (Because fun? It's the work of the devil himself and Dog #1 is here on this earth to do nothing more than do God's work and snatch food off counters) and in the process step down hard on your naked foot with her talon-like claws, resulting in this:


And that cute pedicure you recently got? Well, at least the colors match.

Just another public service announcement from your friends at Chicky Chicky Baby.

dang. and to think that all of the times my *ahem* beloved hairy monster-in-residence has cut me with her gargantuan toenails, all I had to do to make it sort of cute was match up the polish with the wound.

this post is like one of those "the more you know" public information campaigns.

p.s. how dare your feet still be this cute at full-term pregnancy? *shakes fist at Mrs. Chicky*

Oh ow.

by the way...your feet look FABULOUS.

There wasn't any space at all between my toes by the time the Impling came.

Kimberly said...

OUCH!

I was going to say the same thing - sorry about the injury, but dude - you can see in between your toes! Not once, in my 3 pregnancies and as far along as you are, was I able to do that!

motherf***er - damn - but your toes look delectable.

Jess Riley said...

Owie! Cute toes, though....and how ADORABLE do you look in the photo on your last post!!!! Oh my gosh. You look radiant! (And I don't use that word lightly!)

Mrs. Schmitty said...

OUCH! But it does go well with your tootsies.

Damn those sharp furry claw-nails!

That colour must be called dog-scratch red!

OUCH! (But your toes look cute...)

kittenpie said...

Gah! Naked foot! Naked foot! Have I not mentioned before my naked foot issues?! My eyes! Gad. At least you have your toes painted. Phew.

(And my cats are totally likely to pull shit like that at any sudden noise.)

Rebecca said...

OUCH! :(

Fairly Odd Mother said...

At least your feet look lovely! Mine are not yet fit for the other side of a camera.

OUCH! I have those kinda dogs too. The puppy loves the talons to the face though.
