DBW ~ Diabetes Wild Kingdom Wildcard

yep, running a day late on this's been a crazy week and I got the wonderful cold that all my students seem to it when they share!!

Pulling the Wildcard today...
What is the ideal diabetes service animal? Think beyond the obvious and be creative in explaining why your choice is a good one. For example, maybe a seal would make a good service animal - it flaps its flippers and barks every time you get a good blood sugar reading! 

We joked the other day that Bug was Bean's Diabetes Service Monkey when she rushed to the pantry to get her a juice because she said she felt low.

But, the more I thought about it, the more having a monkey for a service animal makes sense.  And, no, it's not just because I've always wanted a monkey!!

Think about it...a monkey would be great!

They can be taught to use sign language so they could give detailed information about what's going on.

They can scamper up and down shelves to retrieve any and all D supplies.

They could open the straw wrapper on the apple juice box in the middle of the night.

They could go around the house and pick up all those crazy test strips that the vacuum cleaner refuses to pick up!

Yep, totally wanting a monkey even more right now! ;)


  1. had me at the climbing up counters to get supplies. The straw unwrapping is a total bonus!

  2. Yep, monkeys make a LOT of sense.

    I don't know why, but when I picture it in my head they have the little shriners hat on, like you see in the movies and stuff. Haha!
