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.

Cricket's Friend

Meet Cricket's friend: the vacuum with the fun long grey hose that dances and makes a loud noise.
As I turned off the vacuum, I heard a happy Cricket running around in circles chasing after the grey vacuum hose. Silly girl - She gets so excited when her friend the vacuum comes out to play each week. (It really needs to come play more often.)

That is one big hose. No wonder doggie loves to play with it eh. Is that a vaccu flo system?? (or however you spell it)

YES YES YES, I love your post about your hubby. A lover ---which encompasses so very much, is a treasure for sure.
I know I have been married 3 times now (sheeeesh) but that is a long story for another day.
but I understand the value of a good relationship.
I am of the opinion that finally I am with my "true love" --reached my destiny. Gosh, I hope. I will do all I can to preserve that relationship.

and your outfit that you put together ---awesome gir. very stylish indeed

Cabana likes to "supervise" whenever I vacuum. She usually watches me intently, standing right in the spot I want to vacuum, so I just work around her and go back to that spot after she moves. After all, I can't tell my supervisor to "get out of the way"!!

That IS a big hose on your vacuum!

Wow. Troy accepts the vacuum if it's turned off, but turn it on and he gets the message: "Oh no! It's going to suck things up now! and me if I'm not gone this instant!" and he avoids me at all costs and waits until I'm sure that I won't retrieve the vacuum cleaner again before venturing over to me! He's very funny.

I find it fascinating that animals have just as much variety in character and personality as humans. Very fascinating indeed! Oh well, I hope Cricket's play mate (vacuum cleaner) plays with her more often lol!
