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.

I am so grateful for dear family who are helping with Cricket's healing process. Many days she has been able to join me at my office. Thursday I had a conference and so she spent the day accompanying Steve to his appointments. Fortunately, he had a day where she could join him!  Steve and Cricket picked me up from my conference and we continued on to St. George. Ahhhh. So nice. Cricket was excited to go for some short walks and get some sunshine.
After a nice walk, we love to stop in at Emerald City Smoothie.  Outdoor seating in a corner was perfect for Cricket to join us.  
Thank you, awesome mom and dad, who were also down in St. George.  They kept an eye on Cricket so we could go for two amazing bike rides.  I have a conference tomorrow again.  Cricket will accompany Steve for his day.  She is racing to the door not clear why she can't just get back to her job of being a guide dog!  Good sign ... in time Cricker girl.  Her staples will come out later in the week, her infection is clearing up and she is back to acting like a happy dog.  YAY!

Favorite quote from the conference:
You can't stop the waves from coming but you can learn how to surf.  Jon Kabbat Zinn.
