Learning to Trust the Dog

After Thursday it will be very hard to get me to go out with out Dulce.  Blood sugar wise, I’ve had a fairly decent school year.  I’ve been very good at control during the day and I’ve learned, once again to tell demanding student – please wait a moment, I need to test my blood sugar (did that at least once yesterday).

Thursday I was having one of those diabetes days.  Blood sugar was high no matter how much insulin I did each check, and in fact, she indicated as we were packing and sure enough I was at 220.

I corrected.

As we headed out, I thought it would be a good idea to get the gym out of the way on the way home.  I was also working on her stay on the mat behavior while working out, so I didn’t give her picking up the leash much thought 15 minutes into the workout as she will sometimes offer that as a behavior when we’re training.

The third time she was adamant about it, I checked and was at 90.  Time for me, personally to quit the work out and get some carbs in me before we had a bad evening.
