Torture Tuesday by Phod

Dear Pals,

You know I am one of the best dogs in the entire world, so imagine my horror when my peeps called me into the bathroom and had me lay on the floor. You know no good comes from anything they want to do to you in the bathroom. 

Lady sat behind me to hold me through the torture to provide love. 

Hailey came in and provided moral support while the Man cut the hair between my toes. Apparently obsessive licking of them made my peeps have to check them out and they decided maybe I was licking because they were itchy as the hair was long. 

Emma kept her distance. I think she was waiting to see if I dropped Precious, which I did not.

It seemed to take 87 million years, but finally, Man got all the hair he wanted and let me go and gave me a cookie.

My peeps said I did a great job and were very proud of me. I think Man was annoyed that Lady kept stopping holding my paw to take a picture!

Do your peeps torture you too?


  1. You have NO idea!!! They DRAG us into the car and drive for 45 minutes and then leave us all ALONE with the Groomer Lady. Actually Miss Teena is probably the sweetest lady you would ever want to meet....but STILL!!! We usually give Ma the silent treatment for at least a couple of hours. Glad you made it through the torture!

  2. Phod you are a trooper... and a true friend, you hold Precious close during da whole torture... pawsome!!!

  3. OMD, Phod, it's a good thing you had Precious to help you out through that!

    OMD Phod, there are many ways this could have ended... but all to the good it seems! Angel Jade was an inveterate paw licker and I never did get to her to stop it... glad you got a treat to compensate! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. You are so brave. Our parents send us out to get the nails done.

  6. We cockers get fur between our toes too that has to be trimmed regularly.

  7. Looks like you were such a good boy duright the hair cute! I hope it helps stop the itching!

  8. Oh Phod, I do sympathise. I am subjected to this between the toe trimming torture on a regular basis, as part of the ongoing (and currently not very successful) programme to prevent the dreaded interdigital cysts from reappearing. Gail says it looks like you were a very good boy, and tolerated the procedure with much more patience than I ever show...
    We do hope it solves your itchy paws.
    Toodle pip!

  9. Phod my peeps can vouch for the fact that you are a wonderful dog...and obviously loaded with patience..
    I say this because when my torture box (yes I have a box) comes out I am no not patient. Dad has to hold me while mom tortures me my cutting my nails. Just when I get them like I want them too.
    Thank goodness you did not drop Precious.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  10. You did a great job, Phod! I get groomed every couple of months and removing furs from between my pads is part of mom's job. For some unknown reason, she thinks it's a fun job!

  11. What a good boy you were, Phod!!! WE hope all that torture actually helps the problem. We have to get the furs between our pads trimmed a lot. If it gets too long, we slide on the hardwood floors. We don't like that at all - it tickles - the humans should know that feeties are ticklish!!!

  12. We get tortured AND you've just reminded HER that the scotties need the hair removed from their pads, too.

  13. Getting our claws clipped is torturous! So we can relate.

  14. Whew....we were scared just watching!!! We kinda think you should have gotten 2 or 3 cookies instead of just one! You are a brave pup, Phod!

  15. That does look like torture. At least you had your sister and cousin there for moral support.

  16. Our peeps would shave Mr Bailey's paw hair for the same reason as the Woo's using a small electric hair shaver. They do Hazel's too - she acts like it tickles!

  17. So did it help with the paw itchies?? That's the impawtant thing!

    Hugs, Teddy

  18. Oh yes, the bathroom is a water torture facility we try to avoid at all costs. Sadly, our efforts don't work out so well.
    Your fur-iends,
    Sam & Elsa 🐾
