More: My husband came home with Silas when I was 7 not months pregnant. Of course I was panicked but it was the best decision we ever made. Our daughter was born with health issues that work cause her to lose oxygen levels. There were several moments that we would leave the room for a second and Silas would alert us she was having an episode. We’ve watched him lay beside our son who has nightmares frequently without us asking him to. We’ve watched him move his body to prevent a child from falling down steps. Literally the best dog you can imagine. He’s learned fo duck hunt, adores tennis balls, and is always up to follow us around as we fly fish a river. Silas has made our lives rich in love.
