WoooHooooo! Congrats, pattymac! I've been bribing Grace toe by toe, too, and she's finally coming around. She was quite the squirmer when she first arrived. I have to do our dogs' nails about once a week in winter and every 10 days in summer, so getting her to stand for a nail trimming was essential! By the time I get to Grace, I've already done 24 paws and am too tired to go chasin' the lil rascal around!

If you handle their feet like a farrier, klm, standing over them and bending their legs so you can see the underside of their paws from above, you should be able to see the quick where it nestles inside even the blackest of nail sheaths.
