Cricket is such a great helper in the kitchen. Yes, she does a little vacuuming but overall she just loves to be close. The other day I totally missed the garbage and was so impressed that she just looked at the leftover cake that was on the floor. I also missed the mark on pouring her dog food into the bucket and she sat by the door and wouldn't come in the room. Besides needing a refresher course on pouring blindly, I was super impressed with my dog.
Cricket wears many 'hats' being by my side each day. Usually at the office, she takes her harness off and is able to use her talents as a 'therapy' dog rather than a guide dog with our clients. Many comment how welcoming they find the office, with a dog nearby. I think she may need to get business cards - I recently had someone come in and ask for her! They said they were open to which therapist they worked with but really wanted to work with the dog in the office. Sorry, we are a package deal :).
Cricket's least favorite way to help: watch the house while we ride the bike or go for a run. Thank you, Cricker girl.
