My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Good Girl, Cricket!

I just have to tell you how fabulous Cricket was on our trip to New York City!! Cricket navigated the busy streets of NYC, she rode the double-decker city bus, walked for miles and miles (atleast it felt like that!), walked undistracted past multiple dogs, did her 'business' in very small - as out of the way as possible- places, rode the subway, shopped til she dropped, took elevators, escalators, taxis, & crossed insanely busy streets, watched the concert at the Today Show, walked around museums, and enjoyed central park with a little off-duty time. She took it all in stride. Cricket and I bonded further on this trip . . . I trusted her with my safety and she did fabulous! She loved it and I think she felt a great sense of accomplishment too!! Good girl, Cricket . . what an amazing journey to share life with you.
