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.

Miss Cricket

What a week! Super busy but perhaps that has helped us get through the week with Miss Cricket (as she was called today by a little client) not working. Her 6-inch incision with pink thread is doing well. She has a little bounce back in her step. I feel very fortunate to be able to continue to bring her to work while she isn't a working girl. Instead of sporting her harness, at the office she is wearing my t-shirt to cover up her stitches.   One of my colleagues is moving and wanted a picture of ...us together - (nope) - the office (nope)  Yes of Cricket!   She posed just a head shot without her t-shirt. 
Oh my how I miss the freedom of walking freely where I need to go.  Suddenly several things I said yes to seem a little more overwhelming without Cricket by my side. 

Happy Weekend!  We are celebrating a birthday - Kendall turns the big 25.  Wow.  I feel old :).

The t-shirt is such a great idea, and Cricket looks adorable in it. Happy birthday to Kendall--a quarter of a century! You must have been 4-years old when you had him. ;)

Oh, Cricket, the t-shirt looks good on you, but I know the harness feels like home. I'm sure you're ready to go back to exploring the world with Mom! We're thinking about and praying for you both!

I'm glad Crickets wound is healing well. I hope the news is good about the lump and that it isn't a bad one :). Xxx.

We're so glad Cricket is doing well. The T-shirt is definitely a fashion statement. Heal quickly, Cricket.

Hi there Becky,
I feel so bad because I didn't even know that Cricket was poorly. I've tried to go back further than this post, but you don't have a 'history' in this blog, so I don't know where to look.
I am sorry that Cricket has to have had stitches, but from the recent posts, the stitches are now removed and she's coming along nicely. It must have been really tough not to have had her working with you. HOpefully she'll be on the mend soon.
Also, I am going to google that questionnaire that you have spoken about...would love to try it out.
Take care and hugs to Cricket.
