Aww don't feel bad, you didn't mean it. I also trim my guys nails, although I've also had them done at the groomers. I'm always nervous because Dozer has white nails on the front paws, but his back paws all have black nails. I always just trim the tips of his nails, I don't go very short. I have to do it more often, because they grow faster when not trimmed short, but I don't want to cut the quick.
