WhooHooooooooo another little milestone!

I had to cut the gangs nails today, (Oksana is still eluding me) and I decided to try to do Czari. She's never allowed me to cut her nails, always growling and hissing if I even hold her paws for too long.

Well, today she let me!!!!! Of course, I had to be quick, and near the end she was starting to growl at me but SHE LET ME! When I was done, I let her go and she stood and stared at me for a few seconds. Then I held out a treat for her and she came to me. All was forgiven.

I'm so happy. I hope you aren't all tired of hearing me go on about every little thing she does, but it's just so exciting and wonderful to me. I know they are little things, but to me they are huge!

Yes, it's going to save me about $18 a month. Sometimes the girl at the front desk doesn't charge me, when there are no other people around, but most of the time there are people so I have to pay.

I'm so proud of her!

Yeah, she wasn't too crazy about it, but at least she allowed it. Hopefully next time it will be easier.

That's awesome! DH and I have to wear gloves and have a full game plan when we try and tackle Ethel's nails.. I find giving treats after each paw seems to make it a little easier.. Great job!
