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.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

Staying Focused

Cricket did her obedience today near the park with a dog barking in the background at the park. Good girl, Cricket! We do this each day (or almost every day!) to help her know that I am 'alpha' and also to help her be focused. They are sometimes referred to as puppy pushups.

She did fabulous. I'm thinking I need to do a few puppy pushups to get focused -- too many projects at the moment and just want to go for a nice long (tandem) bike ride.

What a good girl! Yes, doggie pushups are great to help them focus on you. Maybe I need to resume doggie pushups with my 2?
