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.

Packages are Fun

I walked back into our office after being across the hallway to another office. I was greeted by the UPS man telling me we had a poor security system. For a minute I was confused what he meant until I realized that he was down on the ground rubbing Cricket's belly (referring to her as our security system). FYI: Cricket was safe and could see me the whole time I was in the next office and off harness and our door beeps if she had of left the office. Promise wasn't leaving my dog unattended. (Picture is with Cricket posing by our two fun packages we received! In our dog/computer/laundry room, I have two shelves - one has special pictures, treasures from Pantera and the other one has special pictures of Cricket.
I have been wanting something in the middle to tie the two shelves together.
I was thrilled when Laura - a friend and photographer who is blind created this picture below for us!
It brightens up the room and ties the two shelves together with the wording: Pantera, Missy & Cricket. Pantera spent much time in this room prior to her passing and Cricket and Missy love this room and are great company as I'm on the computer or doing laundry. (The other package I can't say yet what is in it ... a silly little Valentine's Gift for my kids. I hope it brings a giggle)

Getting packages is always fun. :-) I'm very glad you like your photo collage. I always have fun making them. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to make one for you.

Sirena; The picture is the names of our three dogs and each letter is a small individual picture of something shaped like that letter - for example the T is a hammer so its shaped like a T.
