Hello friends....
Getting ready to get back on the road to a new destination early Monday. I have reduced spirits insulin during the day to 11 or 11.5 units instead of 12 since the warm weather does affect him and make his BG levels lower. Still getting readings between 100-200 most of the time but for last few days the adjustment has kept him from falling under 100.

He is meeting lots of dogs and has taken a fancy to a pug in the campground. On his walks he seems to always end up at her site... They are quite a couple, odd couple that is. All is well and we are heading to Orlando on Monday to stay at fort wilderness. Then we will settle in for 3 weeks in st Augustine. Travel agrees with spirit and he is having very steady numbers, I'm so grateful for all your support in the last months. I miss not being able to participate more but I know the new folks are in capable loving hands. Talk to you soon.

Yay for Spirit! Glad he's doing so well! And it's not as odd as you think...one of Hank's absolute FAVORITE dogs is a girl Newfoundland. He's about a fifth her size and weight and he just ADORES her. Googoo eyes and everything! I just sigh and roll my eyes. :rolleyes: I'll admit, I'm charmed by her as well... she's an amazingly beautiful girl but a tad large! LOL But Hank loves her. LOL So at least Spirit has good taste...Pugs are cool babies! :)

Hello friends,

We made it to St. Augustine where we will be camping for a month and I finally have wifi... Yea! Spirit is doing well and loves being at the beach with cool evenings. Family visits are done so this is now our time to chill and relax. I'll be checking in daily to read everyone's posts and hopefully continue to give back to this wonderful site. I've come to realize that if it wasn't for all of you neither myself or my baby would be doing well. Spirit is basically down to 11 units and holding steady between 100-200 on his BG. Yesterday he dipped to 71 before dinner, my bad, we took lots of walks probably too many but he was one happy dog. Gave him a biscuit with some karo and it quickly brought him up over 100. I was a little nervous giving him his usual dose after dinner but I delayed the shot by 20 minutes and all was well. Bless you all we thank God every morning for bringing us to this. Community.

Enjoy the chill/relax time! You'll have to take some pics of him romping on the beach while you're there ;).
