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.

Note: Keep Cricket's Kibble and my M&M's in different pockets!!

I love the fact that Cricket can learn new words/commands, receive positive reinforcement for working through difficult areas, with a simple 'kibble' a few morsels of her dog food! I carry a few usually in my pocket or in a purse pouch. It is so much to get to have a little mini celebration for a job well done!! What on ocassion I forget - like today - is that my treats for doing good work!? (my M & M or jelly bean stash) need to be in a different pocket than Cricket's kibble!! I don't get near as excited as Cricket for putting one of her kibbles in my mouth!!
Am I the only one that has done this??

Ewwww. I did that once with Dahlia's treats though. It wasn't in my pocket -- I just picked it up. It didn't make it near my mouth though -- not even close.

I have kibble in every pocket. Thankfully, I have not eaten kibble. The worst thing is washing your clothes with kibble still left in the pockets. Gross.
