I have just read several of your comments. I would like to talk further with you.
I am a LADA diabetic for the past 13 years. Had a honeymoon for about 5 years and am not completely on insulin. I try hard to keep my health and numbers in line.
My dog, Missy, the black cocker has alerted me twice in the night when my blood sugar was in the 40's. Thank goodness.
I am interested in training my other cocker, Tucker, (white) alert me as Missy is 15 now. I have been researching, and now need a little help about the process and where to go next.

Hi Beth,

I am a prospective D4D training class member. I hope to attend the March 22 class providing my employer decides to let me bring a DAD to work.

I went to the D4D graduation today. The handoff of the leash and dog from the puppy raiser to the diabetic choked me up. The incredibly generous community created by D4D and Guide Dogs for the Blind restored any doubt I may have had about the ultimate good of humanity!

Needless to say, I was bowled over by the genuine caring that was on abundant display this afternoon. This is truly a special community. I hope to meet you sometime soon.

Thanks for your info Beth! How many times did you have to attend the classes? Do you know if they ever provide dogs to Canada?

Hello Beth,
I saw your post about your D4D dog that you have for your daughter. My husband is a diabetic and we are trying to find a service dog for him. We live in Canada however. Did you have any problems getting your dog from D4D? Did you have to go meet the dog before hand? I'm not even sure if we could get one up here or not. Any info I'd really appriciate!

Hi Beth - I saw your post in "parents of kids with type 1" . My daughter and her father are also both type 1. He's on a pump, she's not yet, but will be soon.

Hello Beth and welcome to tudiabetes!

Hi Beth,
Welcome to the tudiabetes.com family. It's great to see more and more non-diabetics joining the family.

Here are a few tips on how to make the most of the site. I invite you check out the different groups; we have: there's an excellent chance you will find more than a few that you can identify with.

If you find the community useful, I'd be honored if you could link to us on your blog/site if you have one or invite; family members, friends, colleagues and anyone whom you feel may benefit from it.

Also, if you know of any local newspapers, TV or radio stations that you feel could be interested in writing about our community, please let them know about our recent Press Release, announcing the community: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2007/8/prweb546849.htm;

Last, if you run into Spanish-only speaking folks, please let them know about EsTuDiabetes.com; our sister Spanish-speaking community.

Once again, welcome to the family and we look forward to hearing from you.
