Spenser looks forward to playing each and every night with one of his interactive treat dispensing toys. Mark fills it up with some of his favorites, and he sniffs the treats out and has a good time. Sometimes he demands that it be filled twice, and who can say no to that old man? Not us!

The other afternoon I was watching tv when my cell rang and it was Mark. He was asking me to come downstairs now, and there was something in his voice that was urgent. So I hobbled down there to see blood everywhere. Holy hell! He had been cutting the dog’s toenails when blood started gushing all over the place. He had cut one nail too short. There was blood on the floor, on the couch, and on Mark’s hand and leg. He had one of his socks clamped over Spenser’s toenail because blood was still coming out! Meanwhile, the dog somehow had slept through it and was still sleeping through it which was fabulous because he’s been known to throw huge fits during nail clipping time. I took over holding duties while Mark got out our pet first aid kit. Thankfully, within minutes, all was well. The bleeding stopped by the time he even woke up. Whew! Spenser gets his anal glands expressed again early next week, so we’re obviously going to have his toe area checked out too. Now I’m pretty positive that I don’t think that Mark can be trusted with sharp objects around my furbabies. I wish I were kidding.
