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

Sunday Girl

*Cricket prefers morning church - it doesn't overlap dinnertime! Afternoon church means a brisk walk home (she knows dinner is at the other end).
*Cricket sits up for the final 'amen' and also when she hears the second bell ring (class time). Someone often comments on how smart she is for this behavior -- (I think she does many smarter things)
*Cricket backs out of the bench or tight row of chairs. The ladies I was sitting next to today found that very impressive - she knows reverse! one of them said.
Cricket is very quiet in church. She can become a nice tight little ball and snooze through church. I was also thinking today that it is one of the rare places that people greet Cricket by name!

My little girl Calliope was a great dog at church too. She loved it! All 3 of my dogs knew what that last Amen meant too.

I actually really enjoyed taking my PIT's to church every week. Its good to hear that Cricket likes church too.

Just a note! You were also very well behaved in Church as a young girl. Much better than your brothers I must admit. Glad that your ward is appreciative of Cricket's work. Love you

Poppy thinks church is a fabulous place for a siesta! Sometimes she snores though. One day it was so loud, people 2 rows away heard her. But I just pointed to the guy sitting next to me since he was snoring too. Ha! Hopefully, her church life will continue as a guide. Only one had issues with church as a guide - but its hard to switch religions. He thought those Catholics were WAY confusing! :)
