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.

2012 - What a Year!

We just finished Cricket's Retirement Book! It has been so much fun going back and reflecting on both some great and challenging times. On to 2012 -- what a year!

There was the feature on See Beautiful's Blog:

Amazing Beautiful

Seeing Beautiful

And then reliving our journey to Europe was so fun:

Creativity in Running - Walking in Europe


This was also the year I ran a marathon! Very cool!

Marathon Journey

This was also the year I experienced a concussion that put the Europe trip and the marathon in question for a while. In the end it all worked out!


Update: Cricket seems happy and pretty settled in to retirement. She loves to go for walks with Steve and I. The transition is quite amazing. I am filled with gratitude for this beautiful dog. I also am reminded our heart can always expand it capacity to love. On March 23rd I will open my heart to a new guide dog. My love for Cricket will not have lessened one bit. There is more space for the next sweet guide to join.

Happy Monday!
