Now hopefully, I can attach the article, but in a nutshell it said that 75% of healthcare spending on diabetes is related to treatment for the longterm complications - something like,Oh I don't…Continue

I got the email from TuDiabetes - a newsletter type. I decided to check out the TuD store - and what did I find? PUG T-SHIRTs! I'm telling myself they were put on the store "shelf" for me personally.Continue

This is hysterically wonderful

If I was high tech at all, I would put up a link - maybe someone else will. Anyway, there is a youtube song "Think Like a Pancreas" sung to the Bangles "Walk Like an Egyptian". Enjoy!Continue

"I have a feeling that since JDRF is focused on type 1, it is helpful to their fundraising if type 1 is associated with children. And let's face it, as one of the major funding sources for research into a cure, my thoughts are whatever works."

Artwoman 'with some cool dogs', congratulations on being named a featured member of the week.

My neighbor has 3 pugs she rescued from a puppy mill - Teeny, Tiny, and Bitsy. All were terribly abused, but once they found out they were safe have become extremely affectionate. Shen she is sour of town, I walk them on a triple leash and they prance around like royalty.
If it's below 30 degrees, they have to wear their sweaters. If it's below 10 degrees, they have to wear dog boots, which they do not like. Bitsy hides under the bed and has to be lured out with a treat.
Then Tiny also wants a treat but he is obese and on a diet.
So by the time I get them ready I'm almost exhausted.

I love pugs!!!!

Thanks, my Blue Merle Collie, Lacey, was the most beautiful dog we've ever had. I love looking at my avatar; we have a water-color painting of her in our living room. Now we have 3 Golden Retrievers, a fun breed. I'll bet that Pugs are fun also. I've had different breeds, but never Pugs. I'm missing having a smaller dog right now...

hahaha I love your picture of the puppies (I call all dogs puppies) so no offense intended. They are wonderful looking animals. It brightened my day thank you so much.

Thank you for the comments of good cheer. The pups (all three of them now) are proud of me.
