Graduate Linda Mosier and her Diabetes Assist Dog Hamel were featured in a great spot on KARE11.
Can Do Canines provided her with her first service dog, Ivan, in 2004. And by smelling her breath, he nudged and alerted her 800 times to low blood sugar over his six years with her before he died of cancer.
That’s Hamel’s job now.
[Executive Director Al] Peters said, “As the blood sugar starts to drop, the smell on their breath changes. You and I might even be able to smell it if we were close enough to a person but a dogs nose is so good they can smell it if they’re across the room.”
