Mats of Bunny.nu gave us this BFF Gold Card award:
It’s really hard to decide who to pass this award on to, as everyone I’ve met through blogging are such great people and I hope we remain BFFs! So, I’ll pass the BFF Gold Card on to everyone on my blogroll (and if I’ve missed you out on my blogroll, please let me know!).
Guess what was the first thing we swiped the Gold Card for?
A very first mani-pedi session for Hans!
Hans and Buttons have dark nails. I need to shine a torchlight behind their nails, to see where the quick ends. And just to be extra sure that I don’t hit the quick, I do the ‘squeeze squeeze’ thing before actually cutting through the nail (without cutting the nail, gently squeeze the nail clipper against the nail – if the rabbit flinches, you’re hitting the quick. If not, then it’s safe to proceed to cut the nail). This is the video where I first learned about the ‘squeeze squeeze’ trick:
It’s a neat trick, isn’t it? Hope it’s as helpful to you as it was for me!
Edited to add:
Strangely, the video doesn’t seem to be able to load here. I’m putting the link to the video here, fingers crossed the link works.
