The first time Rex had his nails done this way was by the vet. I was so shocked that I had another option than clippers. It seemed that every time I did his nails with clippers I ended up cutting one too short and made him bleed. I felt like I was torturing him. The first few times we did it with the rotary tool I needed to have someone else there to help hold him down (from running away). Each nail I would talk to him and give him lots of kisses. When done I would give him a treat. Now he is so used to it and the sound of the machine doesn't scare him at all.
I'm so mad! I went to the hardware store, scoped out the dremmel tools, picked up a couple, read the packaging, set them back down, detached the kids from me, removed Thrasher from my head and made her get in the basket, detached another child, scolded Thrasher and told her she had to stay in the basket, picked out a tip for the dremmel, detached another child, caught Thrasher midair as she leaped for the top shelf of the aisle, grabbed a dremmel tool, made for the checkout at top speed, detangled Thrasher from my hair, gave kids the mom face and told them to get in the van, threw some money at the checkout girl, grabbed my bag, drove home trying to ignore the chaos of 3 boys in the back, came in the house, excitedly got out my new device for Thrashers manicure,and......... realized I picked up an engraver instead of a dremmel. **sigh**
