Buster the dog hero

Buster came into our lives when my husband started a job that required him to travel. I looked for a puppy and found the best friend ever.
Soon after Buster came into our lives my husband became very sick. After multiple hospital stays and surgeries he came home from the hospital.
Buster was 10 months old. My husband was sleeping downstairs in our living room, he was unable to use the stairs after his operation. Buster and I were sleeping upstairs, we were having a terrible ice storm that night. Buster woke me up barking. That wasn’t like him. He’s not a barker… I thought he may have heard a snow plow outside, but I realized he wasn’t barking at the window, but he was barking at the bedroom doorway. I decided since I was awake, I would check on my husband. It was a good thing I did, when we got downstairs my husband was unconscious on the floor. He had gotten up and blacked out. He hit his face on a piece of furniture and cut his face. When I got him to the hospital his blood pressure was 55/30. The doctors said if I hadn’t found him when I did he very likely would have stroked out and possibly died. If it wasn’t for Buster, I never would have gone down to check on my husband. I didn’t hear him fall, but Buster did. My husband thanks Buster everyday for saving his life. He’s my husband’s HERO!
