Alerts After School
Austin had been home for about 30 minutes after school when Bo alerted to me. He alerted with a paw swipe followed by a bow -- the alert chain for a low. I told Austin Bo had alerted and asked him to check. He checked and he was 85. Austin had a juice box while I rewarded Bo for his alert. After the juice he ate a 15 grams apple snack which we didn't cover with insulin. Nearly two hours after this low alert, Bo alerted again while I was vacuuming. This time he only pawed my leg -- the alert signal for a high. I went to check Austin and he was 174. Austin got insulin and Bo got some cheese for his good work.
