Most dogs do not enjoy getting their nails cut. Getting them to sit still long enough is a feat within itself. Getting them to sit still and calmly, and have ALL four feet messed with… forget about it. I think it would be easier to teach them how to sign the alphabet while standing on their heads. Seriously.
One dog owner, however, thought of a genius way to get his dog to surrender to the nail clippers and his teenage daughter, Kendal Peifer, couldn’t resist sharing the experience. She posted photos on Twitter and the response is exactly what you’d hope for 😂
Kendal’s dad created the craziest contraption for their Boston Terrier pup. He bought a purse that would fit their dog’s entire body. Then, he cut holes in it to accommodate her head and legs, so her legs would dangle down.
Mr. Peifer then attached the purse with the dog inside to a chin-up bar on the top of the bedroom door. The result: Pure genius.
The photos were shared with the Twittersphere on February 10th, 2018, and in less than a week they have amassed over 80,000 retweets and 300,000 likes.
Then, Mr. Peifer, fitted with a head-lamp, went to work on his dog, hanging from a purse, from the workout bar. I just can’t 😂 😂
People had a lot to say about Mr. Peifer’s inventiveness:
They also couldn’t resist quoting the dog or putting her in a meme:
All kidding aside, Mr. Peifer’s clever invention attracted a lot of attention in a short amount of time. Lots of people are wanting to try this hanging-dog-nail-clipper-harness at home. Of course, it’s for little dogs only.
Kendal’s tweet is below. She even reached out to Ellen Degeneres about her dad’s genius and totally hilarious invention. I wonder if it’ll catch on…

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:
We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!
One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.
It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.
After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.
There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.
There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂
10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.
This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
