"Hey, Luka, it's Friday 😀😀😀"
"HOLY HECK, DAT MEANS NOTHING TO ME, AM DOGGO, EVERY DAY IS GREAT DAY, BUT AM EXCITE ANYWAY"
Also I love how Luka is the least resentful dog I've ever met. He's not that excited about claw trimming he lets me do it but he's not happy, mainly because he ain't got time to lie still for a longer period of time. Nail trimming takes a little longer now as when I don't dare to use the clippers further, I will file down the claws a little further (only front claws, back claws are naturally worn down enough so just clipping the tip is enough on them), that way I can get the claws a liiiittle shorter. Some claws are perfect length but a few are a little too long.
So after what probably was AAAAAGES to him of "lie down, bud, come on, just a little more" and him staring at me like "BUT AM GOT BIRBS TO STARE DOWN, BALLS TO CHASE, CATTO TO ANNOY". Finally we finished and the first thing he do is sitting up at the speed of light and shoving his face in my face and gave me a heck of a lick attack. Rather than "am mad for u bothering me with claws" he just "O HECK, THANK FOR BEING DONE, AM SHALL CHASE BALLS NOW" 😂 He's such a good boi! And I'm kinda proud over his claws, even though a few still needs some more work (and you can't just cut it down to the right lenght at once, gotta take a little at a time, letting the quick receed), overall I think they're in a very nice shape!
I actually find claw trimming really satisfying now, I hope that with time Luka will see claw trimming as a good nap time, allowing me to spend a little more time to make them nice 😂 He is a lot more comfortable with it now than just a few months ago, probably thanks to a lot of treats and me being less scared to do it so I don't make him nervous anymore, the dream is that he'll eventually just lie there and let me do it, rather than me constantly pausing and get him to lie down again between like every 1-3 claw (and if he's not having it at all, just letting him get some of that energy out and continue later). I'm sure with time we'll get there. At least he doesn't freak out about it and I'm super grateful for that! He's not scared just... bothered 😂
