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.

Cricket joined me at the office so she could say good bye to a couple of my clients that it was their last day. One walked in and said ... Is this your new dog?  After Cricket came up by him and rolled over for a belly rub he said, Oh this is Cricket!  She didn't leave his side the whole session.

Another little eight year old girl said -- Now, why don't you let Cricket stay home and rest and you get a new dog next month!  I said that sounds like a great idea :).  (I'll be going to class next month for my next guide).

I've been looking back through old blog posts and a funny favorite 'what kids say' ... one little boy at the grocery store said to his mom -- When I get my chores done, I want a dog like that!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 

After a conference today on Positive Psychology, we are going to get some sunshine = bike rides, hikes and walks with Cricket.  Love you, Steve ... 30 years ago on Valentine's Day we talked marriage :).  What a great ride!
