Thanks for the ideas for covering the prong - I'll do that. And I'd love to paint her nails, but I tried once before and she flipped. I got half a nail done.
My husband laughed at me.
Thank you also for the tip about watching other peoples' dogs - I hadn't really thought of that.
Here's the link to the event - http://www.pawsohio.org/
It is being put on by a rescue. There's going to be flyball and obedience demonstrations and I've never seen either, so I'm waaayy excited. I'm going to Petsmart tonight to get a backpack for Inara so she can help carry some of her own water (just a small bottle or two since she's not used to it).
I'm so excited!
And nervous - just last night the news was hyping up another local "vicious pit bull attack." An 8 y/o girl went onto the neighbors porch and the dog broke through the screen door or something.
Not good, so I'm sure I'll get some nasty looks!
Sorry, just call me the crazy emoticon lady!
