As many of you know Norman Alexander is a very important member of my family. So I thought it was important for me to look at things from his point of view. Last night B and I trimmed his nails and it was a fiasco. Despite our best efforts to make it a no so traumatic experience, we ended up upsetting Norm and losing his trust for about 2 hours. I was so devasted. He was unwilling to come our way and retired in his little apartment downstairs instead of watching the Amazing Race with us.
Anyway, it made me think about how much these little creatures trust us. I of course trust him immensely. He knows many of my secrets and witnesses my mischief yet he never rats me out. He is definitely a loyal and constant companion. Most people know this about dogs but it is really amazing when you can experience it. The good news is this AM he was back to his normal self and we had regained his trust. YAY!
