The Dog Blog – what’s it all about?

What is the Dog Blog? Well – diabetes is not just about health and hospitals. It’s our lives. Sometimes it’s smooth sailing, but sometimes it’s pretty rubbish. Sometimes it’s just about how many carbs are in a chocolate brownie. Sometimes, it’s about choosing a...

Doggy hospital and a dance with death

Do you remember how I said cows are made from steak, and shoes are made from cows (leather) and so are also basically steak? Eating the socks that go INSIDE the shoes that are like steak is probably pushing my theory a little far … as I found out the hard way....
