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

I HEART Guide Dogs for the Blind
Guide Dogs for the Blind is one of the most amazing organizations ever! For the past 12 years every interaction that I have had with them has been their being so amazingly helpful, kind, and professional. Today certainly was no exception! Upon leaving the office, I loaded Cricket in the back of our SUV, pulled off her harness and had it in my hand along with quite a few other things - as I reached down to shut the door and Steve began to back out, the harness dropped, slid under the wheel and was run over before we could stop! I have a flat harness now ... I called Guide Dogs to let them know of my dilemma and she really could of said a lot of things questioning my judgment on this accident, but no she kindly said, Oh I'm so sorry that happened - we will get a new harness in the mail to you tomorrow. They are amazing ... and I hope someday I can repay them for all the goodness to me. Thank you!
