A Minnesota dad is an internet star after his daughter took pictures of his ingenious idea to clip the family dog's nails without it becoming an utter nightmare.

Kendal Peifer, an 18-year-old from Eagan, shared photos of her dad Patrick, who turned a purse into makeshift dog harness suspended from a gym bar. 

He then used the harness to clip the nails of their rescue dog, Oliver.

The photo uploaded last went viral, getting retweeted almost 86,000 times on Twitter and liked almost 340,000 times as of Friday morning.

Kendal told Buzzfeed News that despite being "the perfect dog," the family has trouble getting Oliver to sit still when it comes to nail-clipping time.

Her father was inspired to create the purse solution after seeing something similar elsewhere, and went to pick up a second-hand purse in Goodwill.

Here's your own how-to guide.

Step 1: Buy a purse.

Step 2: Cut four holes in bottom of purse and open up the sides.

Step 3: Place dog's legs through holes.

Step 4: Hang purse from pull-up bar.

Step 5: Clip dog's claws.

Step 6: Revel in your own brilliance and enjoy viral success.

The response from Twitter was pretty great – with many having a good laugh at Oliver's somewhat pained expression.
