Morgan, The Diabetes Alert Dog (Aired on December 7, 2012)

Ms. Miller and Morgan

Ms. Miller and Morgan

Jeri Miller, a high school guidance counselor who suffers from Type I diabetes, has been on insulin for 15 years, injecting herself four or five times a day. She discusses how children and adults in her situation can benefit from a Diabetes Alert Dog such as her Morgan. A half hour before her meter tells her that she must take her medication Morgan alerts her to the need, working every hour of every day. Ms. Miller describes in great detail how Service Dogs like Morgan alert their companions from a mile away, obey commands to get a test kit or juice, and dial 911 when needed. These special dogs start their training at 13 weeks old, and they can work with children as young as two years old.
