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

Vision Walk

We had a fabulous team combined of Lacey's friends and family, Paul's family, and ours for the Vision Walk. We have hoped the Foundation Fighting Blindness would have a Vision Walk in Utah so it is exciting to be a part of the first one. (We will have a team picture soon to post - yay, team!)
I love Lacey and hope we can get together again soon. We share the challenge of RP but also fortunately share the blessing of friendship. Friendship helps the challenge of RP.
A tired Cricket from walking the 5K. I have tried to reassure her that even if a treatment is found and she is not needed as a guide dog - she will always be a part of our family. (I think we are still some years away and her job security is intact, however over $36,000 was raised for research today.)

Congrats on your walk!! Cricket looks like a wiped out camper. Tired puppy = happy parents. I am in the process of exhausting my child as I will be gone most of the afternoon tomorrow....

Fantastic Day! Thanks for taking it to the streets. . .Mirage tires after half mile. I've been a bit worried about her lately.
Great walk Becky, great work!
Love, Susan

Congrats on the great fund raising walk! We did our first SD Vision Walk last Oct. I think it's in November here this year. We are planning to walk again.
