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.

Cricket. Keeping me safe
Today, during our routine of walking up to the grocery store. In preparation for our group on Mindfulness we needed to buy some candy - our group members were to have an experience on mindfully eating chocolate. Try it. Taste it ever so slowly enjoying each bite. We were starting to cross the street when shortly Cricket pulled me back. A car sped through trying to beat the light making a left hand turn. Gave her a hug as we arrived safely to the other side of the street.
As we were checking out at the grocery store, the clerk asked me if Cricket was in training. I said no, she was my guide dog and she said HOW FUN IS THAT! I thought indeed it is fun to have a dog that is keeping me safe and is just so darn cute.
Its a little early, but I am enjoying pulling out my sweaters for the Fall Season. My colleague came in wearing a white skirt ... fun, classy - she totally pulled it off after Labor Day!
