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.

Today my client (age 8) and I celebrated a little victory by walking over to Arctic Circle for an ice cream cone. She wanted to hold on to Cricket's harness ... after we got through understanding that wouldn't work, she walked holding my hand. After a few minutes, she asked me - can you please ask Cricket to walk slower! Cricket did so willingly. Sometimes when you are being pulled, you don't realize how fast you are walking - especially with an 8 year old.
