Two more amazing stories, about amazing Service Dogs from Warren Retrievers!
Two completely different alerts, (one high, one low) but both equally important to keeping their owners healthy!
Rylie Ann never ceases to amaze me even after having her for 16 months. The other night she woke me up to check Marley. Marley’s blood sugar was 182. Normally I would have dosed her at that point, but Rylie Ann kept telling me low. Even with very little insulin on board, I listened to the dog and turned off her pump. When I woke up 3 hours later to get her ready for school, her blood sugar was 102. That was after no insulin for 5 hours (one of those crazy times when nothing makes sense). Before Rylie Ann, I would have dosed her on top of the 3 basal doses she would have gotten. She would have been in a very bad situation. I can not express how thankful we are everyday for our precious puppy. My heart melts when I look at her.
“Peaches brag…we were at a birthday party this weekend with a whole lot of screaming kids at lots of distractions. Our Peachy girl was on her best behaviour and popped out of place with a paw to alert us of a high bs 18.1(324). Today while at Jamie’s parents we got another great alert with a low of 5.8(104) and a whole lot of insulin on board and an hour left untill we checked. We gave a big snack with no bolus and all is well thanks to our girl. We are so very proud of her:)”
