    Well got the ears cleaned yesterday. Squirted some solution in one ear, rubbed until she ran away. Repeat. Then she hid in her crate so I went in and wiped out the excess with cotton balls.

    Today I got the nails done! I held her in my lap, even when she squirmed and tried to get away. I was able to get the front two paws myself, had to get the hubby's help to hold he still for the back two.

    I might try and take her in somewhere to get her nails done, but at least now I know I can do it.

    Good for you! Congrats on the nails! I won't try nails, I'll pay to have them done first. I had quite a time with Ida and face washing. But I think routine is the key. She fights less and less every night. I think she actually likes to get her ears cleaned. I use a baby wipe and I start with those. Then I do her face. She still isn't thrilled, but does let me do it. Gertie isn't thrilled either, but is more willing than Ida is.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Yeah, the biggest problem is that she thinks wrinkle cleaning is a game, and that the wipes are toys! But I'm sure she will grow out of it.

    Well, I live in the middle of nowhere, a town that has 800 people. There really isn't a place nearby open after work hours. The closes place is about 25 min away, and the next closest (where there would be a Petco, etc) is 50 min away.
