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 and I went for a walk during our break today. We were sad that our Dick's Market that we walked up to for so many years is no longer there. Yes, it has only moved a couple miles down the road but for me in walking during a break it may as well be 20 miles! Okay, I feel better after that vent. Even though we don't have something as yummy as their bakery to motivate us to go for a walk, we are still trying to get our walks in! On the walk back, a friend called. I stopped walking while we talked. (You know no texting while driving or chatting on the phone while you need to focus on walking with your guide.) I was chatting with a friend who is going through a difficult situation on the phone. We were about finished and so I picked up Cricket's harness. She veered me around a little obstacle and so I said 'Good girl, Forward' to her while I was still on the phone with my friend! My friend said, that is what I need to remember - that I am a good girl and moving forward :)!
