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 Update

Sweet Cricket is recovering and feeling as good as you can after having similar to a root canal and her side cut open. Ouch! Thankfully, NO cancer - apparently it was in her skin as well which had the vet concerned. It was simply a very large mass that needed to be cut out. Yes! Her incision is right where her harness goes so no guide work for Cricket for a few weeks. I am fortunate that she can recuperate at the office by my side. Quiet cuddle night for Cricket.

Thanks for all your get well wishes for Cricket :).

Oh cricket girl, recover quickly. But enjoy your little holiday. I know you will be restless to get back to work. Thinking of you. xx

Oh dear, poor Cricket. I am glad the mass was nothing serious.

I wonder if we could read doggie minds, if he is thinking "gosh, I need to get well soon, as I love my companion and need to take care of her.
just wondering.
I am not the dog whisperer (tee,hee)

Oh good, I'm so glad it was nothing bad. Labs do seem to get those masses, don't they? I suppose it will happen to Cabana at some point, too. I hope Crickers will heal quickly and be eager to get back in the harness. So glad she can still be with you, even when not on duty. One of the perks of being the boss!

Glad to hear she is home recovering. I am sure she will miss working with you as much as you will miss her.
