Francesca and Sharkey get a pedicure

Posted by Francesca

You know how we Frenchies love to run and we did a lot of running on all the gravel drives up in Skylands, our home in Maine. Martha thought our footpads looked a little tender and she said we should have a doggie pedicure. Uncle Carlos took us to the laundry room in the basement and followed her instructions. After we got use to standing in the sudsy water, it actually was very soothing. This pedicure business is nice!

Francesca, I'm a little worried about this.

Sharkey, it's OK - just relax.  It's called pampering!

You're right, Franny - pampering is good.

  • Hi F&S,

    Can you give me more details on what Uncle Carlos did for you? I have thin spots worn in some of my pads from running with my dad and my mommy is worried about me. Right now she has some new creams and liquids that she puts on my paws at different times of the day - blech!

    Big sloppy kisses,

  • Gals you go through a lot for your blog don't you?

    I just got a bath today and I am tuckered out. Been napping all day. I hope after your pampering you had some nice doggie treats and a good nap you deserve it, you work hard to bring us the scoop.

    No splashing or anything you did good!

    Happy woof Wednesday.

    Until next time.

  • They are so sweet!

  • Hello Ladies,
    You certainly do lead the life. And Uncle Carlos is so wonderful to help you with your pampering. I like doing that very thing in the bathtub with lots of bubbles. Try it next time in Mama Martha's bathtub with lots of bubbles. Do you think that will fly?
    Take care and have a great day.
    Love & licks,

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Well I really do like the pampering I get at my home. I don’t get to stand in water because my feet have so much hair on them it protects my pads somewhat. One time, about a year ago, I tore one of my toenails almost off. I really looked funny with that big bandage on my front paw. I had to have the dressing changed daily for over a week. I was really glad to get that thing off of me. You two just be careful of your feet; wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • oh Frenchies you sweet pups, looks like you are really enjoying your "petacure" ;-( Uncle Carlos is certainly a man of all trades.

    mommie delia needs a manicure on her fractured hand, she said to send Uncle Carlos over to the house...I just sharpened my claws on a tree trunk, uhhh that felt soo good!

  • Hello Friends,

    I love pedicures! They are so much fun and relaxing. Good grooming is never out of style.

    You two look like you're having fun. Maybe Uncle Carlos can come over and give me a pedicure to.

    Talk to you tomorrow.

  • Hi Girl Friends, I've never had a pedicure like Uncle Carlos gave you gals but after looking at this blog with my Mom I think she will probably try this on me. I usually go to the vet to have my nails trimmed or my Mom gets my Uncle to hold me while she trims my nails. I don't really like it and sometimes I let them know by growling. They put a small muzzle on my nose and mouth so then I have to put up with it. Thank goodness it doesn't happen very often. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxo

  • You girls look like you had a nice time!
