Yesterday I went into an appointment in a confusing house turned offices. Leaving the appointment I was a little lost on how I had gotten in there! I said Cricket outside. in hopes that she would know the way! She did not let me down. She weaved through the offices, found the stairs downstairs and we were outside. I stopped and thought ... 15 years of working with two incredible guides does not make this moment any less. When we were outside, I gave her a hug and a kibble/treat. She earned that little kibble. We walked further to catch the bus and came upon the sidewalk sale in our cute little town and lost track of time a bit. We walked to the other side to the post office, and as we crossed we could hear the bus. I was hopping he knew we were trying to catch the bus. I waved and thankfully, he waited for us to cross. So nice.
Like us all, right, Cricket has many roles to play. Guide Dog is top, but she also takes her role as therapy dog very serious in the office. Her harness is off and she is on her bed and able to get up and come to a client if they would like and she gets the okay from me. Today she was on her bed when a new client came ... at the conclusion of the session she said I just don't think I would have been able to open up as much if your dog hadn't of been here. Thank you Cricket for all you do in a day.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! We have raspberries ... jam to make, perhaps this weekend! They are just so yummy to eat. Five miles in the morning to run. That sounds so doable, now.
