Pawsitive Perspectives Assistance Dogs (PawPADs)
July 7, 2012

My son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 3 years old. He can do anything any other child can do but it is very scary to put your diabetic child to bed. Your child can go into a coma and never wake up if blood sugars are too high or too low. When I learned about Diabetic Alert Dogs, I contacted Pawsitive Perspectives Assistance Dogs. We met with Linda Ball and a couple dogs later, we met Kachina. Kachina is the most wonderful dog ever. She came to our home February 25th, 2012. We truly believe she was meant to be with our family. When she was placed with us, we found out our neighbor volunteers at PawPads. Our UPS delivery man knew of Kachina via John that volunteers at PawPads. At soccer, our YMCA referee had volunteered with PawPads. They all knew Kachina and told us that we were very lucky to have her. She has alerted us many times now and in many different ways. She nudges with her nose, she paws, she whines, and she sniffs like crazy. At the time of Nick's diagnosis, I thought that Nick would never be able to go to college or live on his own. We are so reassured that he can leave the house now. She is such a blessing and she just puts a smile on our faces every single day. What a gift!
