A severely diabetic mother of three can rest easy today, knowing Hamish her cocker spaniel is there.
Hamish is the first trained diabetic alert dog in Scotland. He can smell small changes in Carol Miller's blood sugars. Since Carol could die in her sleep or fall into a diabetic coma at any time, Hamish the dog, is trained to also find her medical bag.
After reading about diabetic alert dogs online, Carol found Linda McHendry, a local dog trainer, in Scotland willing to help.
Carol said "I can't thank Linda enough, she has done it all free of charge. She has never done anything like this before and couldn't guarantee any results but she has done a brilliant job."
