Patch is Eric’s service dog or D.A.D. (Diabetic Alert Dog). She is a chocolate lab, and was born February 23, 2016. She has been trained to alert Eric when his glucose levels drop or rise into undesired ranges that can contribute to acute and long term health complications. She has been an absolute rock star since day one of Eric bringing her home. Patch loves to have fun when she is not “working” and will take on any adventure!
