Correction for Brandy

I notice in my April posting I said that when Brandy's glucose reading was low I skipped her insulin shot. That only happened for a short time as I learned from a doggie diabetic group I belong to that at least a half shot should be given with a low glucose reading (actually makes sense when you think about it as the half shot will cover her glucose coming back up as she eats food throughout the day). I have been doing that and it works wonderfully. She is doing very well and is a very happy doggie. She is always amazing as she is the second blind doggie I have had and you would never know they are blind because they operate from sense of smell and run around like the wind and very, very seldom run into anything. Usually my fault when Brandy does run into something as I have usually left a pail or something sitting somewhere in one of her usual paths. Her sense of smell is pretty long distance - I am about a quarter of a mile from the road and she is always first to know someone is walking along that road and runs to bark at them.
