All in the Family
Lexa Diesel Moses (AKA Stinker) Ozzy Rex


Border Collie

Since I was 5 I always wanted a Border Collie named Axel. I got my dream. When I turned 16. He was the most intelligent, loving and caring animal I have ever met and probably will ever meet. He lived his live to the fullest. He knew who he could trust. He loved the beach and playing fetch. He always swam in the Sea with us, it didnt matter how far out we went. If he got tired I would piggyback him. I can only wish that I could be half the person he was. I always looked at him to see if my friends were trustworthy. He accepted my one boyfriend at the time when he was 4 and I am now happily married to him. He was with us for over 12 years. We had to put him down on the 23 of September. That was the hardest thing for me too do, all of his organs were failing. We received his ashes and when we go down to Cape Town again I will sprinkle them into the sea. He was my life, without him I am so incomplete. I love you my boy, and miss you with all my heart. They say memories are golden Well maybe that is true I never wanted memories I only wanted you A million times I needed you A million times I cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died. If tears could build a stairway And heartache made a lane.. I would walk the path to heaven And bring you back again Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same.. But as God calls us one by one Our chain will link again Unknown

So very sorry for your loss. It takes a lot of love to help them end their suffering. You can see in his pictures he had a wonderful life and had a lot of love for you. That love will always be a part of you.

Your story made me cry... I know what it's like to lose the dog you waited your whole life for. It's clear he was a happy, well-loved pup who lived a good life.

Tears are streaming down my face and my heart aches for your loss. I feel like I knew Axel from reading his story. What a beautiful tribute! Thank you for sharing him with us. I had to pick this picture of Axel's paw prints....

You AND Axel were blessed to have each other---And still are. Try to remember, love NEVER dies. You made the right decision for your precious friend, you helped him go from pain & suffering to a place where he is whole again.He still feels your love, just as you feel his. I have had to make that gut wrenching decision several times with my dear furry companions. It never gets any easier. And when I was in severe anguish over one of them, my mother, who is not an animal fan, asked me Why I have pets, when I know that this will eventually happen? I responded that, to me, the love is worth the pain. I am sure that your new darling little Lexa will help you to face the future with hope & happiness.

I had to comment on/choose this photo. It is sooooo beautiful! The heavenly light on the water, the ball in Axel's mouth---it's perfect, & is how I would want to remember him,even though it is bittersweet...
