Summer Solstice Germany or Florida 6/21/06 - ANSWERED

Postby knapplc » Wed Jun 21, 2006 10:03 am

The Official Germany or Florida Theme Song:
Things are sick and twisted
From too much sun and Nazis
Sex, meth, and death fetishes
Both of them have got these
Guaranteed not to bore ya
German-yyy or Florida

Other GoF Themes

And now, on to our show...

SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD - A 17-pound beagle is more than man's best friend. She's a lifesaver. The heroic pup was in the capital on Monday to receive an award for biting onto her owner’s cell phone to call emergency after the diabetic man had a seizure and collapsed.

"There is no doubt in my mind that I'd be dead if I didn't have her," said the man, 34, whose blood sugar had dropped dangerously low. The dog had been trained to summon help in just those circumstances.

The man first heard about service dogs while he was working as a flight attendant after befriending a frequent passenger who taught dogs to help diabetic patients. Using their keen sense of smell, the animals can detect abnormalities in a person's blood-sugar levels.

The dog periodically licks her owner’s nose to take her own reading of his blood-sugar level. If something seems off to her, she will paw and whine at him.

"Every time she paws at me like that I grab my meter and test myself," he said. "She's never been wrong."

I said Florida - gut feeling, but regardless, that is a great story. Dogs are amazing creatures and they are being used for more and more applications. I have seen tv shows that have dogs sniffing out termites and detecting melanoma using their noses.

Some dogs are being used to detect internal cancers, too. They have AMAZING noses.

Dogs rock! I may have to get me one one of these days. ;-D

I went Florida. Seems Knapp's trying to throw us off with 'capital' and 'emergency'. Most likely I am completely wrong about that though. :-B

Yeah, if instead of 'emergency' it had said '911', we'd all figure it out, or at least I hope so. The 'capital' mention was interesting. Doesn't seem like something like this would take place, specially, in a state capital, but would in a country's capital. But, I'm thinking you knew that and switched 'capital' in there. I'm probably overanalyzing this way too much.

Training dogs almost seems too out of reach for Florida :-?
