We returned home ready to take on another busy week. Excited that on the agenda for Wednesday is staples out for the Cricket girl.
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.

In this life together
We were walking along our trail in St. George this weekend (5 miles one day, 3 miles another day). I said to Cricket, are you smiling? She had her bounce in her step and was enjoying being outside and walking alongside even if she wasn't in work mode. Cricket has loved and served tirelessly for the last five years and her time off, due to her surgery recovery, has given us both pause to remember how much we love being a team. Its a gift that we can't take for granted. We have been creative the past month on what our teamwork looks like right now. We don't like being a part. Experiences that are so easy with Cricket are challenging right now. She runs to the door and tries to come even when she can't right now. So hard. Fortunately, she can still come to work with me. We have gotten more take-out so that we don't have to leave her to go out.
