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.

Kibble for Cricket

We enjoyed some sunshine today and so went for a walk along our Legacy Trail. We walked 5 miles ... it was such a beautiful afternoon, we just kept walking! My legs are feeling it now, but Cricket was happy she earned some extra 'kibble' for her good work.
Cricket was a great guide the whole way and was able to stay on the right side (this has taken her some practice on this trail because a guide is used to following the left side -- however, on a trail like this she would be going the wrong way and could run into cyclists, joggers, etc)
This was fun to feel the adatile that is on this trail at each intersection. Cricket recognized it as a place to stop.

Sounds like you & Cricket had a good walk on the trail. I'm sure working on the right side is a good mental workout for Cricket. Of course, after seeing her work the difficult bumpy, muddy, rock & tree root trail at the coast, I believe she can guide you anywhere!!!!! What a good girl!!
