|I have to take a moment to brag about my Robbie. This morning quite early I woke up, but really wanted more sleep because I didn't have to be anywhere early. Robbie woke when I did and really started bugging me--wanted to lick me, wanted to be petted, and when I covered my head with the covers he "dug me out." I was really getting irritated, but looking in his face, it's almost impossible not to respond to him.
I probably mentioned to you that I am a rather severe diabetic, and even though I am pretty tightly controlled with my pump, I still have occasional HIGHS and LOWS.
When his nagging finally managed to get me up, I did what I always do first thing in the morning--test my blood sugar. It was 40--normal is 100. If I had gone back to sleep, very likely I would have slipped into a coma. After we had eaten and things were normal, he was happy to sleep a little more with me. I don't know whether he smelled my chemical imbalance or was just hungry himself, but whatever, he certainly took good care of me. He is a really wonderful little dog!!!!!!
