The journeys of Becky, blind from retinitis pigmentosa, and her beauitiful guide dogs.
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

Sixteen days until our next half-marathon. We ran 11 miles today. Thank you, Alanna, for carrying me at mile nine :)-- really the whole way! Feeling grateful that the body seems to be saying mostly - go for it! Cricket is ready to go outside ... really Cricket - it is 19 degrees.
We are off to work where three new nylabones await Cricket :). Her favorite is the Five-Senses Bone.
I can easily get caught up in planning events - goals for the year. Good quote on our office board today:
Life is lived in the pauses, not the events. Hugh Prather.
