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.

Dear Santa

I hear you text now ... wow! I'll stick to the computer if that's okay - easier with my paws.

Thank you for the new bone, goughnut, and bed last year. (My handler tells me its best to start out with the thank you part) Now for this year: my wish list is easy to find at the Guide Dogs for the Blind Online Gift Shop . We need a new calendar for the Dog/Laundry/Computer Room. This calendar has lots of cute puppies in training and guide dogs including one that starts with the letter C in the month of July. (hint:I did so well on that hike in Cannon Beach)
My handler would love this shirt that says "I'm with the dog." I don't know if you realize, Santa, but many people know my name and sometimes even greet me prior to my handler (yes, that can be a problem but I do my best to ignore them until I get the okay)
Oh, a blue nyla ring - how fun. We didn't even know they were available in colors. My handler says that matches the family room when I leave it in there. She would like to know how to teach me the 'clean up your toys' command.
And I have this bone that is a nylabone but has marrow inside. We bought it in Jackson Hole at a special dog store and we can't find another one. If you could leave one of those too that would be SO great.

I'm trying to be a good girl.
Lots of Love, Cricket
PS. A new bed for the office would be great, too. Its getting flat -- I've tried to fluff it but no such luck. If you can't help out, a couple of my handler's clients said they'd take up a "New bed fund for Cricket. " My handler said that's not ethical for me to beg to clientele so I'm hoping you can help us out.
