I bet Annie can't wait!
I think I might be getting a bit obsessive (not like you though). I recently cut my finger with a breadknife and my first reaction was to dip a strip into the blood just to see what my BG was.....

Just catching up on some posts.....

Craig, so it would appear that Annie's curve has changed with the introduction of fiber? I get the same prodding from Abby, wanting a test.... funny, I think they think it is some attention on their part.

Yes, I really think the added fiber has flattened her curve, but who really can tell what makes apparent changes? Having said that, she test 350 this morning!

Some day I'll post a link to Annie's online log (the iPad app "Glucose Companion")

You know, for Ali testing wasn't always fun because she could get some pretty sharp drops that required more than she was wanting to offer...but it kept her safe. And she was so tolerant of everything. She would let me know if she was dropping or low so I could test her when needed.

I liked having the peace of mind in knowing my adjustments to her numbers were pretty accurate for all the times we'd compared her meter to the lab machine and other meters we acquired. Having that information was invaluable.

I love it when dogs/owners have found "fun" in the process. The dog is excited and rewarded, by attention or treat, and the owner is gaining valuable information and the dog's trust. There's a great communication that goes on there. My hat's off to you Craig in having that relationship with Annie. Enjoy your OneTouch!

Craig,

Annie must have missed the article about those Boutique hotels in New York that cater to dogs.

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.1140216

They have doggie treadmills, doggie lounges and a doggie spa....

I think she would like a trip? What say you?

Barb
