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.

Hi Cricket & ??

I think most of us that have experienced life with a cane and with a dog would say you are talked to much more with a guide dog rather than a cane. I like that ... a dog makes for a great conversation starter. It is much easier to say 'hi your dog is beautfiul' or 'how old is your dog?' 'what is your dog's name? rather than that is a really nice cane or how old is your cane. People greet Cricket ... a typical conversation is Hi Cricket -- to which I usually reply back 'hi' In leaving tonight, my supervisor said - See you cricket, have a good night! oh, you too, Becky!
