Then you would love Lily also...she is 2 and a half.
Both dogs are Rhodesian Ridgeback. Lily is ridge less.

My sister adopted a dog that she was told was part RR, but ridgeless. She did some research after she had him a while and is convinced that he is a Black Mouthed Curr instead. Apparently that breed is mistaken as a ridgeless RR all the time. The thing that tipped her off was he had a lot of black in his mouth and tongue. You can actually see he black mouth in the first photo.

That's like me trying to clip Ruby's toenails. She must have had a horrible trauma about her feet before we got her at the age of 4 years of age.
At PetSmart, the groomer didn't like my suggestion that she use a muzzle on Ruby. The tech was nipped on her chin.
Then the next time her nails needed clipping I took her to the vet and it took four of us to hold her to clip her nails with her screaming and writhing in fear.
So I thought I would try by myself. Armed with small doggie treats and cheese surely I could coax 112 pound Ruby to let me trim her nails. After putting a muzzle on her along with a body harness and anchoring three of her legs to the kitchen table legs, covering her eyes with a soft cloth and not holding her feet, I was able to sneak a pair of clippers to a toenail and clip the tip. A treat, some love and reposition for another toe...clipped 5 of her 8 toenails on her two front feet...in an hour and a half! :th:he
So from now on the vet will just have to sedate Ruby.
Look closely at how loooong Ruby's toenails are in these photos before I cut them.

I can see the Ridgie part in the amber eyes and the markings on the ears and muzzle.
