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.

A piece of my dream

Since my master's degree internship at The Sharing Place and hearing so much about The Dougy Center, I have wanted to visit there. Today while in Portland, we had the opportunity to have a two-hour meeting with the Director. As we were leaving with the cab driver waiting, I said Steve can you take a quick picture of us. (What a sport he is.)

A piece of my professional dream is to create a center like this in my area! If you go on their site you will see that unfortunately, four months ago their beautiful house for grieving families was burned - arson. So sad. They will rebuild. What an analogy of what you do with loss.

Hi, I really love your blog! I've been following it for nearly a year now and sometimes I want to take your cute puppy home! I'm totally blind but you do make lovely descriptions of the photos which gives me an idea of how cute Cricket is. Keep well and please say hi to Cricket for me!
