Hey! Sorrry I haven’t posted since Axel got back, we’re in the process of moving and I’ve got a busy schedule at school, so things are crazy. But the puppy is taking it surprisingly well. I’ve scheduled some posts to come out for the rest of the week! So be prepared for cuteness!
Here is an Update on Axel’s situation!
So we took off this morning at around 10:00, Axel has always been pretty anxious in the car, but in an oddly excited, but also terrified way. But he did great on this ride:
We stopped to potty once, funnily enough in the parking lot of an adult bookstore (It was the only thing off the exit) But all in all he did great. (Excuse the boo boos on his face, they are from a rubber muzzle the vet told us to use while we waited for the meds to kick in. He had a tendency to ram his face into things while he was wearing it).
We got to the farm and were immediately greeted by the owners. They were friendly, and seemed to enjoy Axel very much. They remarked how sturdy his frame was, as he is on the big side for a corgi (Which was genetic, his dad was pretty built as well) And how he looked like he’d make a great show dog if it weren’t for his colouring.
She introduced us to her male working dogs (They were in a gated off area under the porch while he got settled in) and immediately a group of cats decided to come and see what was going on, and amazingly, Axel had no problem with their presence. (He’s been pretty timid with cats in the past.)
Leaving was heart wrenching and very hard. But the woman promise she would send pictures updating us on his time there.
Th first that came through:
Axel’s first friend he made on the farm was this cute little kitty beside him! He got to spend the day relaxing in the shade of a truck listening to a race on the radio, and he seemed perfectly fine with it!
Next, they introduced him to some of their other dogs, who act as if he has been with them the whole time.
I’m so happy he’s getting along with the other dogs, I know the only one who really has a problem with this situation is me. I know he knows I love him, and I know this was the right choice for him. He will get to do what he was made for, and I hope he will be very happy there.
Good luck to you and Axel! Hoping all goes well!
My heart goes out to you, your family and sweet Axel. Sometimes, the best thing to do for our dogs is not the easiest. I hope you will still visit Axel and I hope he will be happier on the farm. We’re rooting for you and Axel! :)
What a kind unselfish person you are. Please try to see if you can go visit occasionally, then wait until you are settled in your own home to get another dog. Just because one puppy didn’t fit your lifestyle doesn’t mean another won’t be perfect.
I can’t express how much I appreciate all of your advice, comments and support over this year. You all mean so much to me. This is a very sad and hard decision I had to make, but you all warm my heart. Thank you all so much.
