Jennifer is a mother of a type 1, and raising her own DAD, Bo. She blogs about her experiences on her page, and today she posted her “Day in the life of a type 1” today. Her son Austin is the type 1. Her day is here: Raising Bo. Thank you Jennifer!

Johanna participated in our “Day in the life of a type 1” project. Johanna is an adult type 1. She is a huge part of our DAD organization, Canine Hope For Diabetics, working as our resident type 1 for real time training with each dog. She almost always has multiple dogs, her dog Porcha, and at least 1 other DAD in training. With multiple DAD’s in the house, testing can happen a lot. Trust me, I know. Thank you for doing this Johanna!

This picture is the very first picture I took of Major and Stella. I feel so bad, as I thought their anniversary was on 10/5, but we actually had Major placed with us on 9/25/11. It is so hard to believe that this amazing creature has been with us for 2 years. So, to the most amazing DAD team I know, Happy Anniversary!
