Abbey Karnes ordered her diabetes alert dog, Darby, to go bring her a juice when her blood sugar level was low, and Darby responded promptly. Karnes was delighted since that was precisely what she was meant to do in that circumstance. Darby felt great about herself as well, so much so that she chose to try it again.
Darby made the decision to dash to the kitchen to bring Karnes another drink even though she already had one. Despite not needing two juices, Karnes complimented her, and after a little pause, Darby went to the kitchen to repeat the process.

On the video that she released on TikTok, Karnes left a remark that said, “She wanted to try if she could receive more rewards by giving me more fluids.”
Darby did, however, look genuinely concerned for her mother, and bringing her the juice was the only solution she was aware of. After giving Darby five juices, Karnes was finally able to tell her that she didn’t require any more. She wouldn’t need more than one juice, and everything would be fine.
Darby reluctantly decided to believe her mom and stopped going to get juices, but stayed right by her side, just in case she changed her mind. Darby knows exactly how to do her job as a diabetic alert dog and does it well — and sometimes, she even goes for extra credit.
