Could be. She was back to her normal dosage this morning, and just tested at 96 on the PetTest before dinner. No worries with the 96 because I know she will rise now and her morning test is almost always higher on this dosage.

Will be an interesting day. We are having a cookout (I smoked a pork butt and beef brisket) and our human son brought his three dogs to play with Annie. Of course, Annie is not having anything to do with them. I'm surprised the three dogs are ignoring Annie. It's nice having active dogs in the house. One is a Boxer (Cooper) who thinks he is a lap dog!

It will be interesting to see if Annie joins in the festivities, and where her blood glucose reads this evening.

Nothing else to report. I'm preparing myself to make "the decision". Blind, deaf and dementia; but she still has good moments.

The family picnic was a success. All the pups would have given the brisket a thumbs-up, if they had thumbs.

My "problem" is that at 72 years old I could only manage one pulled pork sandwich and two slices of brisket. 19 hours in the smoker is getting to be too long! Of course everyone had a doggy bag to take home.

Annie didn't participate in the fun. She was warn out getting groomed earlier in the day. My son's Boxer, Cooper, was his typical clown self and had us all laughing. I've added a photo of Cooper to my photo library.
