Pet Diabetes Presents Stories from Around the World!
Of Owners and Their Pets with Diabetes Mellitus


Tigger came to us when she was 10 weeks old. 
She was the cutest, most precious one of the litter. 
She just kept coming back to me as if to say "please take me home".  
We had never owned a tiny dog, always meium or very large ones. 
We've always had Labs, yellow and black. 
We still have an eight year old yellow neutered male that loves Tigger dearly. 
She's his "little sister". Right away from the first day, she stole our hearts. 
The first night , I knew she would cry and miss her littermates, so I fixed her 
a bed right beside our bed (on the floor) so I could pat her if she fussed during 
the night. During the night she put her little paws on the side of my bed and 
cried just a tiny bit so I scooped her up beside me and the rest is history. 
She is my life. (My husband works 12 hr. days usually 6 or 7 days a week.
He also adores her.  She certainly runs this household.
She was diagnosed with diabetes Aug. 29, 2003.  It was devastating to me. 
But with the help of people on this list that care about their pets as much as I do,
I have been able to cope. She is a real trooper when it comes to shot time.
As long as she's healthy and happy, I'm happy.

Kathy, Casey & Tigger
