It has been six years since we were placed together at Guide Dogs for the Blind and began our training in Boring, Oregon. Time flies. We are a perfect match. I wish I could just keep you as an energetic, healthy 7 1/2 year old and me as an energetic 48 year old :)! We will both age together as we do everything together.
Thank you for your example of love. How often I hear in a day ... wow, what a sweet dog. You radiate such love and kindness. Your example of being present in the moment and greeting those you meet with a wag of the tail and your love (when your harness is off) is inspiring.
You also are an incredible guide dog. As we say, you just kind of pull it off. I love how you take it all in stride ... noisy traffic, no problem; lots of children around, no problem; going for a long walk, no problem; a busy day at the office that means you hang out on your bed, no problem.
Today as each day I am celebrating our bond we share. Oh, the many miles and adventures we have had together! I look forward to many, many more!
So much more I could say but we need to 'go' so I will say, Cricker girl, forward.
Much love, Becky
