He got a little nick on his elbow, needed two stitches. (Not even - they would've glued it except that superglue can't handle torque at all, and since surgical glue is superglue, and the elbow is the elbow - well!)

Judging by the groomer's reaction when I said it was no big deal, I guess most people would've been more upset. But eh. He backed into the clippers. Seems believable. It's not like this happens every time he goes, which would worry me. Anyway, they discounted the grooming a little.

He's a smart dog! On the walk home, he ambled at his usual pace until we reached the park. Then he hauled me ahead to the nearest water fountain and waited for me to unclip his bowl. He's so easygoing, but when he decides to throw his weight around, all of a sudden wild horses can't get him to move. Wouldn't think a toy poodle would have so much weight to throw around, even metaphorically.... We hardly ever even use that fountain, but he knew right where he was going.

(Moonpie also headed to the groomer, but only to sit in the waiting room. This served the dual purpose of getting her some exercise, and also helping to acclimate her to the vet's office. I'm tired of her freaking out every time she needs her nails trimmed. I ought to have brought some treats with me.)

Poor Finn. Don't back into the clippers, pupper! Here's hoping Moonpie will be more calm when Bad Things Don't Happen in such circumstances.

Oh, man, yeah. If you can't see where the nail quick is, that's tricky. Especially on a wiggly.

Good luck!
