Well hello to anyone out there :)
I've been seriously slacking - a lot has been going on here.
Inara is currently retired from agility due to an illness. She doesn't have the best immune system and has been fighting mange on her paws. Her last competition was the Purina ProPlan Incredible Dog Challenge. It's quite awesome that her retirement trial was in front of over a thousand people in person and an audience of millions on TV. She loves applause and attention so it was perfect for her. Inara's paws were pretty bad for the competition so she wasn't her speedy self but she was super happy - the happiest we had seen her in a while so that's why we let her compete.
My friend Lisa made this absolutely amazing tribute to Inara! I was very upset when I announced Inara's retirement but Lisa's image cheered me up right away.
Right now Inara is spending her days going on lots of walks (so happy her paws are finally well enough to walk!), wrestling with her sisters and eating lots of treats.
