Diabetes Alert Dog

Posted on March 6, 2013 at 10:25am 6 Comments

I will be getting an alert dog in July and would like to know what other experiance with one was. I am also trying to get my boyfriend to understand the importance of the dog and keep our relationship together.

I'm really excited to get her and have her come every where with me.
