    I'm sure he regards the extended stay at the vet as the cause of his bad time, since that was unpleasant while the process of eating the cookies was most pleasant indeed--and he probably got some satisfaction out of pulling off the complicated heist while I was out too. When I'm home, and he steals something non-edible that he knows he's not supposed to have, he frequently dances past me with tail wagging to let me know, "See what I have? See what I have? Stop whatever it is you're doing that's taking attention away from me and make me drop it."

    Sorry to hear about your dog, Tilden. My 23-pound Jack Russell terrier once ate a pound of fudge so I can relate.

    Question, though. How did you find out your dog was diabetic? Did he have symptoms?

    I do know that cats, at least, have symptoms just like what you would see in an undiagnosed person. Ridiculous thirst, excessive urination, weight loss, etc. I would think it would be the same for dogs.

    Thank You Karen - but I think it is her that has done good. All I did was let her do what she wants. Now I even have conversations with her now that I can hear her.

    TROUBLE Update:
    After 10 months - another breakthrough - almost 14 yr old Trouble has now been sleeping in bed with me for five nights and jammed up aginst me in different places as she moves around, I mean she is like jammed up against me and purring to beat the band. Friday I woke up at 3:45AM to her patting my face with her paw. (I was probably snoring) I got up and fixed her breakfast and I feel so good right now even a few days later. She is still sleeping with me.
