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.

Beautiful Bonding

Today Georgie and I had a little time to visit Steve's office. It was fun to introduce her to his colleagues.  She was adorable and such a good girl.  I have been looking forward to introducing Georgie to City Creek (a beautiful shopping area that I often meet friends for lunch, etc).  We walked over to City Creek and introduced her to my friends at The Limited, Nordstroms and Rocky Mountain Chocolate (yes, I am a frequent buyer of their amazing Caramel Apples!).  I am so excited how quickly she has picked up - Find the Counter. This is such an awesome help for a shopper who is blind.    I was so excited how she nailed the curb from the Nordstroms door to the curb to cross the street.  Forward and a right, right and we were there!  Incredible!    We had a little spare time before our ride and so we walked over to Temple Square. It was such a beautiful, crisp spring day. I was excited to introduce Georgie to this beautiful, peaceful area. We were sitting on the bench and two sister missionaries stopped and visited with us. They were so sweet and had such love. One was from France and one from Mexico.  They took our picture.
It feels like we've been a team longer than 3 1/2 weeks!  Today will be a memorable day that I will look back as our bonding deepened.  We felt like one.  She is doing fabulous both in our home in getting settled in to the family, at work and as a guide and all the many places that entails.   So grateful.  Love this girl!
