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.

Resisting Some Change
When Cricket joined our family that already included two dogs: Pantera, my retired guide dog, and Missy, our pug; I began to feed her in our bathroom. Three dogs in the same area eating their food just seemed a little intense! Since Missy died, it seemed practical to transition Cricket into the dog room to eat her dinner. Its hard to teach a middle age dog new tricks ? and she has just started to make the transition. However, this morning I realized I really missed her being in the bathroom area while I was getting ready for the day. Sounds silly, perhaps but I missed her having her morning drink nearby. I try to embrace change in life. We all know change is the only thing that is certain! However, I told Cricket I didn't want to change her routine. So, she's back in the bathroom waiting for dinner time.
