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.

If you need a laugh ...

You've got to see Cricket at Laughing Yoga:

As the article mentions, whew, out of my comfort zone but happy we did it! The reporter was fascinated with Cricket's experience as well.

Readers, you must watch this to see the looks on Cricket's face! They are priceless!

The one thing that I noticed about Cricket was her yawning. A dog that is yawning is not always bored or tired. Many times, they are stressed & this is a release for them. Laughing yoga was out of her comfort zone too. Most likely, she was picking up on your awkward feelings & she was becoming stressed. Quite interesting. I enjoyed it & it was fun to see you guys!

Laughing yoga sounds mad. My aunt is a yoga teacher but not sure if she has taught it. Might try it sometime.

Hi Becky,
That video made me laugh too! I do yoga, but have never heard of that. I found your blog on the Guide Dogs site. I wanted to get in touch with you to see if you might like to write in a story about Cricket for our website. We are putting together a site that dog lovers can go to to share stories about the heroic things their dogs have done for them. We are in the development stages now, but hope to have it up in August. It will be part of the www. bowwowgifts.com website. We make healthy dog biscuits called Star Spangled Pet Treats. Our Hero Dogs program will ultimately send proceeds to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association - how I found your story and those of others!
I planned to write a story on a great guide dog and was researching info. Then I saw your story and thought I'd ask if you want to submit one yourself! Your stories and blog are very inspiring.
For more information, please write us back at bowwowbskt@ yahoo.com.
Take care,
Melissa
