My husband just got out of the hospital 3 weeks ago for a silent heart attack, atrial fibrilation, congestive heart failure, and a severe case of gout, all which were discovered at a semi-annual physical a month ago. Tim had no symptoms of the heart problems and we were in shock when we discovered how ill he actually was at that point.
Emma had been very attentive to him for the past couple months, constantly smelling his breath, and laying on his chest over his heart. She wouldn't lay on his lap, she would just lay on his chest when he would be in the recliner. When I don't feel well, Parker will lay on the bed as close as he can get to me. I really think their sense of smell and intuitive internal senses are stronger than we can imagine or scientifically prove. That's one of a zillion reasons why we love them so dearly!!!
