Instead I cleaned beads and cut my finger when a bead stuck on the dremel..then Cocoa came in from the back yard with a big thorn in her paw, broken off of course.
We tried holding her down, she tried biting us. We wrapped her in a towel and put a sock on her head. Then we tried putting her in a pillow case and lying on her. Then I tied her hind legs up with a bathrobe belt. This all took 45 minutes.
I finally became frustrated and duct-taped her up in a bundle in the pillow case with the sock on her head. Finally! Thirty seconds and the thorn was out. Who would think a seven pound Chihuahua could put up such a fight?
Now she is zooming around on three legs when we're watching, four legs when she thinks we don't see her.....
