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 Birthday, Cricket Girl

We will make sure you have time to run, walk, get your ears scratched, chew on your favorite bone and lots of cuddle time on your 5th Birthday. We will celebrate that you are an amazing, loving soul that also has an incredible service each day as my guide dog. Love you girl.  (Note:  Cricket held this pose with several kids nearby calling her name.)

Happy bday Crickers!!!! You really know how to celebrate!

Funny quote - Today, I practiced being clumsy with my lunch in the lunchroom by dropping it all over the floor. Hosta didn't touch it! He wanted too - but decided he better not! :D
