Snooze Dog

My generally laid-back dog can't get his nails clipped without a perscription for anti-anxiety meds. (Everybody's got their something, right?) The last time we took him for a checkup, everything was fine except for the routine nail clipping. He squirmed so much he cut the vet's assistant, and I was terrified that he would bite someone (which he never has before). They had to hold him in weird positions that hurt him and scared him even more, and I was so upset. Now, muzzled and sedated, he was much easier to work with, and the vet snip-snip-snipped, no problem.

Here he is, post-manicure and feeling no pain.
