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

Beautiful Gift

Yesterday we had our follow-up visit with a Guide Dogs for the Blind instructor. Steve dropped me off to meet up with the instructor at 9:30. I walked through Temple Square and Georgie did great navigating through the busy sidewalk. We met Danielle, the GDB instructor, on the south side. First we sat down and had a visit on how Georgie is doing. She is doing so well! I wanted to practice escalators, navigating through the mall, and geting more familiar with the route to Steve's office. Funny note: Guides become familiar with your points that you stop on a regular basis. As we were walking back to the car, she stopped and was ready to turn into Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory :). She was just checking ... Carmel Apple today? :).
Thank you Guide Dogs for the Blind for the incredible support you give to us! For almost 17 years I have experienced their amazing support of helping me be a successful team with three beautiful guides. Such a beautiful gift.

Georgie, you're brilliant. Stop at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory might be just what Becky needs at that moment! :-)

I love guide dogs for the blind & that's why I volunteer. The best gift that I have received through GDB was your gift of friendship.
