Courtney just left after trimming the usual suspects.  There was a time not so long ago, when trimming Pepper was really difficult, he couldn't hardly stand on 3 legs, so we had to literally hold him up.  And Courtney had to be quick.  He has really perked up lately & gotten much stronger.  Of course his broken hip leg is pretty stiff & he walks sideways, but really seems to be doing pretty good.  

She's worried about Jenny's abscessed rear foot that is still draining.  She is going to e-mail pictures of Jenny's foot to Dr. Teskey & see what he thinks.  Dr. Shamis didn't say anything about putting her on antibiotics.  I've thought for quite sometime that they might help & so does Courtney.  She's worked with Dr. Teskey for years, so we'll see what he thinks. 

This was Tucker's 1st trimming, I guess it was the equivalent of a little boy's first haircut.  Although hopefully most little boys don't throw a fit & throw themselves on the ground.  We have picked up his feet since he was a little bitty baby, so that was no big deal.  But having someone do something to his feet really wasn't acceptable from his point of view.  I ended up sitting on him & him bucking laying on the ground.  At least I think that was what he was doing, he certainly was giving me a ride.......!!!! LOL  He did get his first animal cracker afterwards, which he thought was pretty interesting.  He'll have to be trimmed on a regular basis, his heels are already contracted, poor little guy.
