"Mmmggg." He knows how to growl with his mouth closed...keeping the letter of the law while still registering his disapproval! I ignore him and attempt to continue...
"Woo-roo-roo!" Now he's bouncing around, all sassy. I have him sit, and then down, while I finish. Phew! Okay, so far so good.
Maybe it's just the color he doesn't like...
A few minutes later, it's time for the second coat. I wait til Alfie's out of the room...laid out in the flying-squirrel position...looks asleep. Yay!! I sneak back to my bathroom and ever so quietly unscrew the polish.
"Gruff, WOOF-WOOF-WOOF!" He's back in the doorway, jumping around and barking red alert. Nothing wrong with that nose I guess! I shrug and ignore him...he stalks off looking a bit offended that I didn't take his dire warning seriously.
The good news? When I did the girls' nails for Easter he totally ignored it. Well, almost totally...he did leave the room!
I'm telling you, I get no respect around here!
