A few minutes ago I was outside and heard a racket from the side of the house where the SIlkies pen is. I found one of our dogs had opened the pen and grabbed a silkie. He was running all over the yard with the silkie in his mouth. I ran in the house screamin for my husband who ran out side in his bed clothes shoeless. FInally he had to crawl under the deck to get the silkie from the dog. The silkie is in my lap shivering. What do I check for? I can't believe he is still alive. It took 5 minutes to get him from the dog. He smells like dog slobber and is upset. Do I need to wash him? Is so how long do I leave him inside to make sure he does not catch cold.
