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.

Saturday night with friends

It is said that a guide dog is carefully matched with their handler. Well, I LOVE to spend an evening with friends going out to dinner, movie, sledding, biking, anything fun and Cricket is the same way! Tonight she had a nice evening with her great friend (and fellow guide dog) Morton. First they both worked hard guiding their handlers safely into the restaurant, sitting/lying quietly under the table and then we came back to the house and enjoyed some visiting, playing with the new double ring, and trying out the 'firminator' and pedi-paws!

Sorry, this isn't a very clear pic I am told. This was with my phone, but they were posing so cute.

Okay, so maybe they better keep their day jobs as guides. Cricket loves to pose for the camera but she does need to expand her wardrobe to get a little more holiday-ish scarf. Morton tried to be a good sport but please!
Missy felt so left out she wanted to be included in on a picture. Isn't she so cute. She can outshed them all and we had enough after combing her out with the 'firminator' for a rug.

I should add we had a great time with Rod and Connie, too.
