Even though Honor was seen as a godsend by Baker and his family, some things for Baker were beyond repair. Finally, last August, after a battle with PTSD that had already lasted 25 years, Baker decided suicide was the only way to get the nightmares to truly stop.
Honor, who is a meaningful connection Baker's sons have to their father, continues to live with the family. "After Wade Baker's suicide earlier this year, Paws & Effect gifted his service dog, Honor, to his wife and sons," the organization wrote on Facebook. According to the AP, when his family gets upset, Honor knows, and he does what he was trained to do: He makes the nightmares go away.
