With all of that said these dogs absolutely save lives. When utilized as intended it becomes an exceptional relationship for both owner and animal. The second area of interest in this book is the owners. The Diabetics and their families who share their stories. They are moving, sad and hopeful accounts. They are real stories of real people who have struggled under the weight of their disease and they have allowed us into some of their most private and difficult moments. I think that the unique relationship between people and dogs is demonstrated at its best and most mysterious within this book. You will never see something as fascinating as a Diabetic Alert Dog studying its Diabetic owner and telling them what is wrong and the Diabetic studying her dog in reply so that she can decide how to respond. The silent conversation that occurs between the two is a privilege to witness.
