Napoleon Dynamite: Do the chickens have large talons?
Do they have what?
I don't understand a word you just said.
Dillan has some serious nail issues going on. As in, Does the Dillan have large talons? Yes Napoleon, yes he does.
And it's mostly my fault. For some reason, I have just been very busy lately and haven't taken much time to take the dog out on a proper walk.
So his nails have grown into this monstrosity:
They are freakishly long. Usually walks help keep them filed down, but the lack of walks have resulted in nails probably an inch long.
I read that your greyhounds nails are too long if you can't slide a piece of paper under them while the dog is standing. I haven't tried this test, but I'm positive we'd fail.
I tried the Drimmel thing a few months ago. Ya know, the one where you file the nails with sandpaper on the end of a drimmel tool. We worked on one nail for about five minutes. I couldn't tell any difference.
It looks like I'll be investing in some clippers soon. but it scares me a bit.
Have you had success in clipping your dogs nails? Any horror stories?
