Bo's Second Alert

Bo had his second alert this evening. I was checking Austin before bed and he was 70. I had Austin sit on the floor to see if Bo would smell the low. Sure enough, he did! He got excited sniffing and then paw swiped Austin twice. I treated Austin with three glucose tablets and I "treated" Bo with Zuke's training treats. I rechecked Austin and he was on his way down; this time he was 67. Austin was back in bed by now but Bo could still smell the low. With his front paws propped up on the edge of the bed, he paw swiped Austin again. This continued as I re-checked and retreated Austin. He went to 63 before eventually coming up to 94. Good low Bo!

  1. You are doing an amazing job Jenn...and Bo is an awesome D.A.D. in training. He is getting 'it' for sure.
