I never thought that she would be the one to grow up and have no interest in scratching in the garden. But she doesn't. And I've come to the conclusion that it's because she's pigeon toed. She walks around just fine but when she stops, she's usually standing with one foot on top of the other.

And since she doesn't scratch, she doesn't wear down her toe nails. I've trimmed them a few times in the past but she REALLY doesn't like it. And I feel so bad doing it to her.
So today, I took her to the vets office for a professional toe nail trimming. They did a lovely job. And they also gave me the confidence to keep doing this myself. Hopefully, every other month will be often enough to keep them from getting out of control. That's six times a year. I think I can commit to that. The question is, can I get Ginger to buy into that plan?
