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.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

A great life

Steve, Cricket and I were at the grocery store today with lots of other people on a busy Saturday in December! A woman came up to us and shared that her 9-month old grandson was blind. She had many questions about Cricket (guide dogs), blindness, and life that we were happy to answer. She was learning all the amazing resources and tools available for him. We could relate even though it is approaching 30 years since my diagnosis.  She said - he can have a good life, right? Both Steve and I said almost in unison ... most definitely -- a great life!!

You are a wonderful example at just how wonder life can be, if you just let it. Nose poke to Cricket.

What a beautiful message, Goose. Nose poke back at you! I hope you and Cricket (and me and your mom) get to spend some time together one of these days!!
