Wednesday, December 13, 2023, MN

I feel bad - poor little Joey is completely stressed right now.  The Veterinary technician was here tonight and I restrained him while she tried to trim his nails.  He was having absolutely nothing to do with it and cried out in agony and fought me every minute.  She was able to get one foot done, but that was it.  If any of my neighbors heard, they would think that is was torturing him.  I don’t know what has happened to the poor guy in his past life, but he just can’t get past the trauma of the nail trim.  He is patient with me as far as grooming, trimming the hair around his feet, and even letting me mess with them, but as soon as I try to restrain him and the clippers come out, that is the end of his tolerance. 

It’s been a busy week with a haircut and some shopping on Monday, our community holiday party yesterday, and some shopping with Deb today.  We also took a drive tonight after the pet nail trims were done.  Our drive to see holiday lights wasn’t quite as nice as last year when we had over a foot of snow on the ground and the lights reflected off the snow was very pretty.

I also wanted to take a drive in hopes or spotting a shooting star, as it is the time of the Gemenid meteor showers.  The sky wasn’t dark enough and we didn’t drive far enough away from the city to be able to see any.
