Baxter the Diabetes Dog steps up.

September 11, 2013  •  1 Comment

Baxter takes his job seriously.  Even going so far as to wake his owner up when he senses danger.  Sure, that may sound like something any dog may do given the right occasion but in this case the danger doesn't so readily present itself.   Baxter is a service dog and possesses the unique ability to alert his owner when her blood sugar drops below safe levels.   He even wakes her up when he notices that her blood sugar may be low while she is sleeping. 

Now Baxter has another job ahead of him.  He has been diagnosed with cancer.  His owner has chosen to battle the disease and through numerous donations from kind-hearted animal lovers which came in-part to a story about him on King 5 in Seattle, she will be able to afford his treatment.

I was happy when I heard that Baxter and his owner wanted to volunteer their time (and his cute face) to appear in the 2014 Paws Against Cancer benefit calendar.  What a fitting participant.  Look for the calendar this fall right here at Olydog! Studios Pet Photography.

Thanks Baxter!
