Jean took Robbie into her home, and later she wrote:
Robbie is absolutely wonderful.  Such a great companion and walking partner.  He walks me at a very brisk pace for our two miles; then he races like the wind around the back yard or in the house, just to show me that HE is NOT tired in the least.  All of the neighbors ooh and ahh about how cute he is, and I take the opportunity to rave about Pom Rescue and the other breed rescue people who help find these delightful, loving creatures good homes.
The thrill for me, though, came when she wrote again:
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!!!!!!
And a day later, she writes:
"Let me give you a little update--this morning I woke early again and Robbie and I snuggled down and went back to sleep--my blood sugar was normal and there was no reason to make me get up."
