Cricket has been my connecter. In so many ways we have had opportunities to connect with others. So very grateful for those deep brown eyes that have blessed my life. When you say nothing at all is our song :). As we were walking back to our seats after speaking at the GDB Holiday Luncheon, this song was playing with pictures of guide dog teams. Listen to the words and you can see how beautifully it fits. Love it.

Gotta love breaking your arm just before you are to fly to speak to 700 people :).
Update: As I am finishing up some writing - I found the above post. So, I will add a song about my third guide: Georgina. Of course, Georgie Girl became her song. But the real song that represents Georgie is: Happy It was playing almost each morning as we got in the van for training. Georgie is such a happy dog. I love that she wags her whole body when you pull out the harness. I love that she wags her whole body when she knows she 'nails it' on a Find (Steve, the elevator, the escalator, the door, the stairs, the ice - at the convenience store, etc, etc,) Yesterday I made the mistake of mentioning to a client that we were going to go for a walk. Georgie heard that word and bounced up wagging her whole body ready to go for a walk. Georgie is my make it happen dog. Whether she is asked to find a destination, or relaxing around home and pulls out a toy and nudges you til you play a game of tug with her :). She makes it happen.
