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.

Should I Go?

We've been anticipating Lion King for soooo long. Tickets were purchased months ago. We have heard there are some fireworks in this production. Since attending the Holiday Bowl 3 years ago, I am not a fan. They were every touchdown and I wanted to just crawl into Becky's lap. We went to a quieter place at halftime. So now, contemplating, should I go to Lion King this afternoon or stay home? I will be sad when they leave but it might be best. Steve is a pretty good sighted guide and Becky could pull out that white long stick. Hmmmm.... we're off to Yoga.
What do you think? Should I stay or go?

James went to a number of performances with me- Cirque Du Soleil, The Lion King, Spamalot, and other things like that. James though did not mind loud noises, fire works, loud speakers and stuff like that, he usually just lay at my feet under the seat and snoozed through the performance. I would say that if you are going to be frightened and not be able to relax during the performance, I would stay home Cricket. That way Becky won't be worried about you and not able to enjoy the show.

Dear Cricket,
I think you should stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet while lettng your human companions have a little alone time.

Enjoy.

Thanks! I loved Wicked but glad I didn't go to Lion King. Becky tells me it was amazing but had some loud noises that I might have been a little worried about. I forgive easily and as soon as she walked in the door, I loved her and welcomed her back home.

Kashi, I hope we can have a play date soon!! That would be pawsome!

Much love, Cricker Girl

Awe, if the noises bother you stay home. We cant have you worrying about loud noises.
Dublin on the other hand, fell asleep during the fourth of July fireworks, I dont think they would bother him LOL.

Oh Becky, I though you'd been a little quiet lately :-)
Minor health issues can really undermine our vitality can't they? I hope you are feeling better very soon. Running and biking until the snow flies.
Love, Susan
I think it will be okay, I went with out Mirage to Lion King. Itwas unneccesarily loud but I was in the back :-)
