Milo is my daughter , bluebells, service dog . NOW! He taught himself to tell her of high or low blood sugar. So she goes and eats almonds since that is a source of protein that can easily be carried. Also almonds have magnesium which balances blood sugar as well. This is a new skill I had not taught him and when I saw it I encouraged him . He has been and is also bluebells siezure warning in advance.

Most dogs like to do something for the people they love, even if it's just huggies. Your Milo is brilliant. He really responds to your praise and positive reinforcement and so, he loves to support and surprise you with his new tricks! Amazing. What a blessing.

Milo also interrupts when my daughter has PTSD, stopping the experience . He pokes her elbows and chin with his nose. Then he comforts her and this helps her reorient. From it.

He was not originally taught this but when he began to volunteer to do this I encouraged it and now it is a regular thing that he does.

He will let plant eaters into his yard. Such as deer or rabbit and squirrel. He won't let in raccoon, fox , coyote , other dogs , cats that aren't ours , or possum. This makes rabbits and squirrels comfortable . So, we see more of them than we used to. Deer in our city have become mostly nocturnal to avoid us. Which is normal for city deer. So we see few deer.

Milo is 5 now. Earlier when he was younger, maybe he was about 2. There was a yearling deer , just barely old enough to have left its mother. Well, this deer hid in some brush between two garages. It would come out and touch noses with Milo.

Sometimes at dusk the deer would lie down next to Milo who was also lying down. They would be back to back. Facing opposite directions. Milo and the deer would scan and sniff . Sometimes , the deer would put its head on Milo and close its eyes. Milo would remain alert sniffing and listening and looking. Most of the time the deer would kept its head up close its eyes but its ears kept moving .

Milo acted as if the deer were his deer to watch over. This went on for about 3 months. Then the deer stopped coming to our yard.

Yearling deer often join little groups of other yearlings to grow up some more together. They continue to have occasional contact with thier moms but mostly while in thier little groups teach each other how to be a deer.

In winter deer of mixed age groups gather combining and recombining the groups. So, I hope this deer followed this pattern . Supposing that why the deer stopped being Milo's deer.
