One Year On

comments 4


It’s been 1 year since we let Axel go. Despite the circumstances of what happened a year ago, I still miss him a lot. There’s never a week that goes by where he’s not mentioned within the family – happy memories mixed with funny stories.

He was only just over five years, but I’d like to hope we gave him a great set of years.


  1. Oh, what happened to Axel? Our family used to have an Alsatian when I was growing up, so I’m particularly fond of them myself.

    • Family made the hard decision to put him to sleep after his moods and reactions started changing and after he went for me. He was a lovely companion but it was getting hard for anyone to help him.

      • I can’t imagine what that must’ve been like for everyone to deal with. I’ve heard people say it’s difficult to retrain a dog after they’ve tried to attack someone (that once they do it, there’s no turning back, etc). God, that’s just such a difficult situation for anyone to find themselves in.

        • In the last year he had changed a lot. I think once that switch has flipped it’s hard to turn it off. I think it’s something that we as a family, tried to, not ignore, but cope with.
