Her Nails (not mine) Must Be Trimmed By Professionals (40 Lines)
One January day
in the year, 2018
came a commotion as big
as we've ever seen!

A nail trim was scheduled
at half past three,
Our Basset Hound, Boo
was nowhere to be seen!

We searched and we found her,
way back in her crate;
rushing for the door,
not wanting to be late

The ride wasn't long,
'til she started to wail
My steering hands shook,
We humans, quite pale!

Last time we tried our best
to do this at home
a blood bath ensued
The Vet, we did phone!

Boo wiggles and jiggles
and kicks up a fuss
Takes four to hold her,
Vet makes five of us!

The Vet trims the nails
while three keep her still
I talk and I soothe,
later needing a pill!

None the worse for the day,
Boo gets some treats;
A spring in her step,
her nails are quite neat!

Time to recover
until six weeks hence
We'll do it all again gladly
and at our expense

When your pup is family,
you get her the best
when that tail wags for you,
with true love you are blessed!
