I don't have any children, but Vegas is sensitive to my condition. I'm a type 1 insulin dependant diabetic. I'm on an insulin pump.......and like any other diabetic on insulin, I suffer from occasional hypoglycemia. One night, Vegas woke me up by nudging me. Figuring he had to go potty, I brought him downstairs and let him out. He just sat by the door and stared at me. Once in an upright position, I started feeling dizzy, so I checked my blood sugar. 38! That is pretty low. It could have caused a seizure if I hadn't been woken up by Vegas. (by seizure I mean a diabetic seizure.......where my body is suffering from lack of glucose and my body starts to seize until I get something carbs in my mouth.) I've also noticed that when I don't feel well, Vegas is very much the cuddle bug. Yesterday I had the day off from work. I was very tired from not sleeping.......Vegas crawled up behind me on the couch and put his neck over mine. With his comfort, I slept a good 3 hours. I just to be snuggled by a bulldog!
