Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. I’ve been seriously neglecting Axel’s blog, and followers. Not much has happened, we mostly lounge around, play a bit, and then lounge some more. We haven’t gone on many adventures, so I haven’t taken many pictures.

But I have some quick cell phone pictures stored up from the past few months that I think are pretty cute, and those will be popping up over the next week! 

Thanks for following! We really appreciate it! 

Love,

Axel and his mommy.

Those of you who have gone through this before, how do you cheer your remaining dog up?  He doesn’t eat. He won’t get out of bed. After a walk or fetch session he crawls under the coffee table and won’t move.
Please. We need help.

Oddly (or not so oddly) enough, dogs go through the grieving process and, like humans, how they do it or how long it takes varies, although generally speaking it’s somewhat unusual for it to be extremely long in dogs.
Be patient and understand that he’s feeling the loss of his companion just as much as you. Try to distract him with more attention and do things he likes. Take him on more or longer walks, car rides, etc. This can help immensely in terms of getting back into the normal swing of things. Minimize stress near his food bowl (if you had one for each dog, remove one!) and offer treats to goad him into eating and drinking again.
Above all, spend more time with him.
It’s heartbreaking to see but like they say, time heals all wounds.

Apparently my closet is Axel’s new favorite place to chill.
