Okay, to begin with dog shows and testing blood sugar doesn’t really mix. My dogs have a couple of different attitudes about testing. Macy doesn’t like it, Dulce thinks it’s a super great opportunity to get into trouble as mom can’t do much about it until she’s done.
Almost a blooper, I am really bad about not having my meter in my kit. I finally grabbed a spare and put it in the dog show bag, but guess what, it’s missing.
Yesterday I was in Denton showing, which I actually liked. Very small facility, very small rings, but managed to get close parking each day. Since I don’t groom on site, it was great (this one grooms outside under cover).
I grabbed my chair, set up against the wall but opposite the ring gate, thinking that would give me some breathing room. NOPE! My pump alarm went off to test, and people were climbing over me WITH their dogs to get to the next space. ARGH!
One woman and her dog were literally on top of us, said excuse me, and I said “Sorry, I’m trying to test my blood sugar” and woman STILL climbed over us, and took our space. Honestly, I cannot test and control my dog at the same time and I shouldn’t have had to.
