    GOTD: Just got back from Africa to find that my sister took my dog to the vet while I was gone and had his nails clipped. I have a real dog, not some pampered purse pooch. He digs up gophers and kills squirrels with those nails.

    Dear Sis, how would you like it if I were babysitting your kid and you come home to find that I took him to the doctor and got him circumcised while you were gone? And then I tell you that you really should be thanking me because you really should have had it done by now. And then ask you to fucking PAY for it?!?

    That's interesting. I work outside too, and I had to grow mine longer because it was long enough to be on my neck but too short for a decent ponytail. I look like crap with really short hair.

    Oh yeah, I HATE wet hair on my neck and a sweat like mad. When I had it long enough for a ponytail I'd often shave underneath because it's so hot. My hair is also very dark brown so it absorbs sunlight, so kinda like wearing a wool hat. Bleah. Not everyone can wear their hair this short (I get it cut at a barber shop. Better cut, $15, in and out in 10 minutes) but I'm kinda butch so it works.

    GOTD: when permanent genital mutilation of a human child is compared to a dog's nail's being clipped. Comparison FAIL!

    However, what your sister did was a little nuts and totally out of line.

    I'm assuming this was a permanent claw removal, which is more like taking off the tip of your finger than just trimming a nail that will come back later

    like I trim my cat's nails, but would never think of removing the claws themselves. that's just cruel.

    I'm not making any assumptions -- I'm just going by what she said, and that's "nails clipped". Nail removal is a completely different thing, and I've never heard of that being done on dogs.

    No, it was just nail clipping not removal but that still can be very painful for a dog depending on the skill of the person doing the clipping. Just a bit too close and they bleed. Not to mention the trauma of being carted to the vet by a stranger.
    As far as the comparison fail goes, that dog is my baby, so, for me, the comparison holds. Sis got a little scratch on her pant leg when my dog jumped up looking for attention. She shouldn't make my dog pay for that. And she just did it without asking. That really bugs me.

    But it's not your baby, it's a dog and someone was watching it and decided that it needed its nails trimmed, you're overreacting.

    Unless you specifically told her not to, this is one of the things that good dog watchers do. If you have proof that it was a shoddy job, it'd be a different story.
