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.

Missy on Monday

There are some advantages of being the old pet in the house versus the working guide dog ... one of which when Becky spills 1/2 a container of cereal you can do your part to help clean up while Cricket watches. Isn't Cricket a good girl? Not very nice -- that's like me siting by someone enjoying a yummy desert and not having any.
Cricket did receive lots of praise and kibble for her ability to steer clear of the cereal mess.

Good job Cricket!
Toby dislikes the "leave it" command, but he always gets treats when he follows through with it!

Missy, you keep up your "good" work with cleaning the kitchen!

Well done Cricket!

It's not easy sometimes ... we were in McDonalds the other day and Clive had to ignore and leave the french fries on the ground under our table as we sat down! But he did and got duly rewarded!

Missy sounds like she enjoyed cleaning up the cereal anyway!

take care
