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.

Good Life, Cricket

A few humorous comments of the evening.  (I laugh because I am sure I probably make amusing comments to others as well.) 

A man asks if he can say hi to my guide dog.  He then proceeds to sit by her and ask her if she  knows how good her life is.
(This was nice as it seems some are so concerned that she is being taken care of as she melts them with her pleading eyes.)

Mom, there is one of those guide dogs in the store.  Does that mean there is one of those blind people in the store.  (Promise, true comment).

How old is your dog? Five. Oh, I thought she was more like four.

Those are hilarious! I especially like the last one. It's always nice to hear you look young for your age, even for dogs!

It is funny. I have really good hearing which I think sometimes people don't realize :)

I'm glad you have a good memory too, to remember all these funny comments from people. We humans sure are a funny bunch.

Oh gosh, why are people so weird!? You must get so many stupid comments but you always put up with it with grace. I LOVE the last comment though. Ha!

The painted nativity sets are so sweet! I remember painting one for my family when I was in college! With me being a newlywed, I think my "new" family is deserving of one too!
