I noticed the same thing, Richard! LOL! Just as though we were sitting together in the living room chatting about everything - conversations ebb and flow in many directions! We took a left turn in talking about the dog being trained to smell sweaty articles of clothing.

I see. So, we have a "......dog being trained to smell sweaty articles of clothing"??? Sounds like a dog's life to me. I found a Group devoted to diabetes alert dogs today. It is amazing what you can read about these dogs there.

I have a DAD myself and I absolutely love him! It's amazing what we can train dogs to do these days. Even tho I have issues with high instead of low blood sugars, I feel safer with him around and he is my antidepressant

Just FYI, we were talking about these dogs using sweat as a way of detecting a diabetic emergency and I made the point that it makes sense because sweating profusely is one of the symptoms of being hypo. See the connection?

And, yes, regular conversations do wax and wane depending on if people find the topic relevant to the personal experience and interest.
