Jedi can smell spikes and dips in Luke’s blood, and the black English Labrador has been trained since he was a puppy to alert Dorrie to such changes in blood sugar.
He brings over a brinsel — a cloth tube — to Dorrie and “bows” when Luke’s blood sugar is too low and “waves” if it’s too high, Dorrie said. (Jedi lifts his paw up or down to signal the change).
Recently, Dorrie even shared a photo on Facebook of Jedi alerting her when Luke’s blood sugar had dropped low in the middle of the night.
The photo has gone viral with over 373,000 likes and over 182,000 shares as of this afternoon. With the picture, Dorrie narrated the whole incident and wrote “Jedi jumped off the bed, then back on again, though I felt him do this I didn’t wake up,” she further added “Then Jedi laid on me. I woke up…without Jedi I would have had no idea that he was dropping out of a safe range.”
