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.

Happy 3rd Anniversary, Cricket

Dear Cricket, aka as Snuggle Bug;
Happy Anniversary! You had big paws to fill as guide two - I love that you didn't try to fill those paws rather you walk to your own incredible fun loving, good girl beat. Another lesson to be learned from you. Remember the crazy time of the sidewalk being under construction and we had to stop at this hole and inch our way around? You were such a careful, conscientious guide. I love how you are looking at me -- are you okay, are you aware of the hole?
I love you. Let's celebrate today by spending the whole day together (like most days) going for a nice long walk, working at our office - you'll get some time to get your belly rubbed, chew on your favorite bone and nap time; lunch with Steve to celebrate, and we'll end the day with a yoga class. Ah, simply a joyful day and what you bring into my life. Love you, cheers and extra kibble to you for many more years of good health and guide work as my special partner. Love you Cricker Girl.
