Dogs, like their human counterparts, fear something in their lifetime. Since each dog’s unique, various reactions arise when our canine friends encounter fearful situations.
However, would you believe that a dog can resort to faking a fainting episode to escape a nail-cutting session? We may never know what makes the routine scary for the pooch, but we can take a look at how it reacted towards the situation.
Please give me your paw, bud.
In the video, one can initially see a woman sitting across a brown-and-white-furred pooch. The doting fur mom pets the dog on its head until she stops and takes an object from the floor.
A closer look at the object reveals its identity – a toenail cutter. After Mom patiently explained the procedure to the dog, she then gestures for the pooch to place its paw on her palm.
However, it seems the pooch’s reluctant to give Mom its paw as it continues staring at her with a petrified look. No matter how much Mom convinces the pooch, the terrified dog only keeps staring blankly at her.
I’ll do it, then.
Since the dog’s too afraid to give Mom its paw, Mom decides to do things herself. The woman then grabs the pooch’s leg as she once again explains to the dog what she’s about to do.
But, nothing can prepare Mom for the pooch’s reaction. As she starts trimming the pooch’s toenails, the dog suddenly closes its eyes and leans backward.
Before Mom performs anything, the pooch already lay down on the floor with its feet raised. This event ultimately made the pooch’s fur parents snicker with laughter.
Though the dog’s still feigning its fainting spell, Mom nonchalantly carries on with the toenail trimming session. By the looks of it, the pooch can’t stop Mom from cutting its nails, even if he “fainted.” Watch the video below to witness the pooch’s reaction in live-action personally.
