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.

Monday update ...

my day got a little worse before it got better ... Steve dropped me off at work and I realized I didn't have Cricket's collar. We had the harness and leash so it worked to walk into the office. (First time that has happened ... I guess not too bad for 11 years)

I was reminded by several of my adolescent clients that I am very happy being 40ish rather than 14-18. Those can sure be tough years for girls. I wish they could see how amazing they really are.

This, cute face is what follows me around all day (or I should say I follow her around all day)and so it is easy to change the mood into one of happiness and gratitude for all that is good in the day!

Kids are MEAN these days..flat out MEAN. I can't imagine being a teenage girl again. Not sure it gets that much better as I recently had a girl tell me on the soccer field the only reason I got the ball away from her is because I was fat. Nice.

Glad Monday got better. Poor Cricket, she had to go to work naked...when I "get dressed" every morning, so does Chelsie. :)

Hi Becky nice to meet you. Glad your Monday got better and Cricket sure is a cutie! I have been reading your blog for the last few hours and read that you are from utah. I am too, I live in Utah county. From your pics it looks like you are a bit north of me. Happy trails to you and Cricket she looks like a stellar guide. :)
