Most people love being pampered and having their nails done. Dogs, on the other hand, usually despise having their nails clipped.
A dad from Minnesota was recently faced with the dilemma of clipping his rescue dog’s nails without him putting up a fight. His daughter was there to capture the hilarity that ensued.
Patrick Peifer had seen a contraption that suspends the dog from a door frame to make nail clipping easier, so he decided to try it out for himself. Instead of purchasing an expensive harness, he decided to make a trip to Goodwill.
He purchased an old purse and cut holes in it for their dog, Oliver’s, legs and head. He then suspended the purse straps from a gym bar that was attached to the door frame and placed unsuspecting Oliver inside of the purse.
With his trusty headlamp on hand for better lighting, Patrick got to clipping Oliver’s nails. His daughter, 18-year-old Kendal, was sure to snap some photos of the ordeal. She then posted them to Twitter, where it soon went viral.
Kendal confessed to Buzzfeed that she was surprised at how quickly her tweet took off. Her post has already been retweeted over 70,000 times.
People fell in love with not only their adorable pup, whom they rescued a year ago, but also Kendal’s dad. Many Twitter users have been asking for his number and if he’s single.
Other people shared similar experiences with their dogs, rigging contraptions of their own out of pillowcases and more unusual items. It’s safe to say that clipping Oliver’s nails will no longer be a struggle now that Patrick has his trusty purse contraption on hand.
