Tonight we planned on riding a short bike ride. We will join our group tomorrow morning. After Cricket followed us around as we packed, I couldn't leave her. We will be on a bike for two and a half days - 240 miles. I am not sure which will be harder ... the long ride or missing my Cricket Girl. Steve and I went for a nice long walk together with Cricket by my side this evening. How do you put into words the bond of a guide dog? Incredible. Beautiful. Smooth. Love. Service. Gratitude.
