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

Thank you to these amazing, beautiful people who raised Georgina.  We had the chance to meet this past Monday while I was in  San Rafael.  I am so very grateful for their gift of service, love, commitment, sacrifice ...  I sit here not even sure how to put into words the gift of their service.  Incredible.  Puppy raising is the most amazing example of the gift of service.  Thank you David and Libby and all in their club who helped raise this amazing guide dog. I received not only a beautiful guide dog but new friendships!   She completed flight 2 and 3 like a pro! Travelling is such a further bonding process as a team.  Today she had a long day at the office (11 hours!) and did remarkably well!  Cricket is happy and settled into retired life.

What a thrill for Georgina's puppy raisers - to meet you and see their puppy working. Really, this makes it all worth while. As a fellow puppy raiser you can trust me on this.

Fantastic!! And I know they appreciate your openness and loving home for Georgie too.

Elle J is correct: It must mean so much to them that you are open to staying in touch with them and, especially, that you love Georgie so deeply.
