Grace, if it was a creepy pervy stalker guy, she didn't save MY life, she saved HIS.
And I'm a bit upset about the car harness - I just can't imagine that Inara, even at a full-out sprint, is stronger than the impact that would occur during a car accident? That being said, I'm going out today to buy her a new harness. Not sure what brand I'll go for. Maybe when I contact Four Paws (the harness company) they'll send me a new one.
Official tally now that I can see what's damaged: the tether is fine, the car harness - FAIL.
The stitching at the strap/harness juncture tore on three of the arms, and the fourth arm seems to have broken at the plastic buckle part.
Muttkip, you said that harnesses can break shoulders, but I would imagine the bones/muscles/crucial pieces parts are a lot stronger in her shoulders than in her neck? I'm thankful she had the harness on and not a collar...
Michelle - you know how to do fences??? My current landlord said they'd help me put the privacy fence up when the time came, but they did a crappy job on the small portion of privacy fence they put up already.
Miss Thing went out on leash this morning. Now that I have untangled the tether and it is fine, I'll let her back out on that, probably on a harness still.
