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

Not Again!!

This is a sidewalk that Cricket and I walk along often to go to our two different offices. For the past year, different sections of the sidewalk have been closed and has certainly tested Cricket's navigating abilities. For awhile we could not use the sidewalk at all and had to walk to the west around the block, then there was a big hole in the sidewalk that she would stop at and then move around, the fence was knocked over for awhile and now they have closed down this final section. I'm hoping by next week it will be back open and we can walk down the sidewalk in a straight line!

I'm sorry mom!! They shouldn't do that!

Here's the link to blog with the big hole:

Oops! Thanks, Natalie -- I fixed the link.

Look at it this way Becky, you've been able to refine Cricket's guide work to an even higher level.
Go girls!!!!! Love, Debi

Debi -- true! Yesterday with this last change she kind of looked up at me like "when are they going to be done?"
