My buddy Bert said I should write about this so that’s why I am going to give it a go, even though it’s a bit embarrassing and I know there are many of us who do the same thing for the people we love. Here goes.
(This is us poolside at my gal pal, Belle, house)
See my MOM has type 1 Diabetes. She has had it for the majority of her life, but until several years ago she was not diagnosed with it. This means that she has several complications and for some reason one of those complications, for my MOM, is she slips into comas. It’s scary! The scariest time is when she is asleep.
When my MOM starts going into a coma while she is sleeping, I know it’s happening and I jump into action. I start whining right in her face. I push her with my nose, pull at her hand. I bark and I jump up and down on the bed or couch. I do whatever I can to make her come around so she can take her medication so she'll be OK.
Sometimes I am met with pushing away, but that does not stop me, I keep going until she responds. But like I said I know many, many of us would do the same thing for the people we love. But still not bad for a rescue dog, a dog who was abandoned TWICE in the first six months of his life. I Love my MOM and will do what it takes to keep us together.
“The dog is the most faithful of animals and would be much esteemed were it not so common. Our Lord God has made his greatest gift the commonest.” -Martin Luther
