|Becky and Cricket (both younger :), 2007|
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.

My colleague's refer to Cricket as the mascot of our office. She takes this second job :) seriously ... hanging out in the doorspace of the group room to watch those who enter the office as well as keep an eye on those in the breakroom. I hear repeatedly throughout the day - the joy that Cricket brings in our office. Today it was the two of us alone in the office - a break between clients and here she was in her space. I stopped and found myself just relishing in this sweet moment. In the past seven years - she has been in this space during a break in clients so so many times. I reflected on the growth that both Cricket and I have experienced in the past seven years. I reflected on our walk up to Dick's Market probably a month or so after returning home from our training 7 years ago when I felt it and said -- Cricket we are in sync ... we are an amazing team. We were in the flow together.
