Compare this photo to the one I posted around Christmas and you should be able to tell the mood difference. We're still adjusting to her diabetes and I think the hardest thing for her and myself is the snacking . . . I do bear a great deal of guilt as it was probably all of those extras that led up to her diabetes diagnosis, though the meds for her ear infections most likely accelerated the process. There is some evidence out there that certain medications can also lead to diabetes, but it doesn't matter now I guess. I do feel that everyone in the family is eating better . . . or at least conscious of what they are shoving in their mouth. I can't look at her now when I eat, and I have very little desire for bacon and eggs on the weekend as I can't share the bacon with her. We loved our bacon for sure . . . so yes, this may actually be a blessing in disguise. She takes her insulin like a champ and I think we spend a little more quality time together too. She's a good dog. i should have been a better guardian though. For health and safety reasons, don't let your pooch eat people food. I think Chloe forgives me . . . except when i snack now. I'll try and do some research and updates on diabetes in dogs and share that with you.
