Grooming the paws of a beagle is not the most glamorous task I've ever encountered. In fact, the majority of things I do on a regular basis are much more glamorous. However, I appreciate beauty in my surroundings and hairy-toed beagles, while cute, just don't quite fit in. Both beagles have been sprouting more and more hair inbetween their toes as they get older. And these hairs, they sop up drips and drops of anything on the floors, or outside.

And here is Ruby. She is the beagle with the hairy toe problem. She is embarrassed I am sharing this with the world.
And she does not enjoy toe grooming. Look:
One Pedi-Paw (it works!), a nail file made for acrylic nails and a pair of hair scissors later; her paws began to look like they were ready for Prom.
One paw down, three to go!
