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.

Blogging from Greece ...

We arrived in Athens this afternoon ... we've learned how to say thank you - f harry stow (I am sure that is not how you spell it!). Our tour guide told us that is what to say and it certainly makes peple smile so we are hoping we are actually saying, thank you! I need to learn how to say excuse me ... using my cane - very bumpy sidewalks, low hanging signs, etc. What an adventure!

Keep us posted on how Cricket is doing, Lindsey. I know she will do fine but Steve and I decided we just couldn't make eye contact with her before we left - she was so sweet and so eager to be a part of the activities. Cricket, it was a super long flight and you will enjoy your time with Lindsey much more. Love you and miss you!

She has been a very good girl and has had lots of fun playing with Frisco. Today she got to go to 4 different schools with me and was perfect at each of them.(like I would expect anything less than Perfect from her). I think she would rather do her job as a guide, then walk around next to me all day though :)

Becky, I can't believe that you're blogging from Greece. You are amazing. I don't know how you do it all!! Lindsey, I'm glad to hear that Cricket is doing just fine. I knew she would. I'm sure Cricket loves playing with Frisco, cause she loved playing with my dog Dakota.
